Hi - happy to have found a site for the older gals... I am 44 and pregnant with my third. My youngest is 7. So it's bee awhile. I have been feeling great, no problems whatsoever - buy recently (I am 12 wks) having horrendous headaches that last all day. I read in a book this is normal, but it is getting to the point I am losing it - and want to take something. I read tylenol is okay, but still perfer not to if I can. Then last night, I have horrible back pain, actually just right of the spine in the lower back and could not sleep the entire night - no position would ease and the pain - it was shooting. Is this possibly the cyatic (sp?) nerve? I even tried getting into "down dog" as I remember that helping me years ago with the other two. And finally, everything seems so far advanced, I am huge in the belly and "feel" stuff all the time - I thought it was too early for that. I know this is a lot and hope I don't sound like a complainer. I love being pg and was looking forward to a great one, but now I am worried. If anyone has had similiar experience, it would be great just to know I am not alone. Thanks!! :smile:

Hi and welcome!

Could you be constipated? I actually thought I was going to miscarry at about 13 wks because of the pain but it turned out I was constipated <_< . I also had bad headaches and the doctor said it was hormones. She suggested I take tylenol. I only take one at a time and only when it gets really bad.
Sorry I don't have much more help for you. It has been 13 yrs since my last pg and it is much different this time.
Keep us posted and good luck.

Congrats on your pregnancy!!! I'm not sure what could be bothering you, maybe give you Dr. a call and ease your mind?
