Update on my pregnancy. I am now 11 weeks and doing well. This is my 5th preg (all previous m/c). But I am so worn out and sore w/o my meds. I can really tell these last two weeks. Some people are such hard huggers, theyr'e killing me. I hurt all over. But atleast I am sleeping :) I wasn't at first w/o my meds. Does anyone know of some techniques that might help with the soreness? I have tried rubbing alcohol and epsom salt baths which either helps for a while but not lasting. Plus shortness of breath, why does that happen and what helps? I can walk a mile and not be short at all but walk into church late and try to sing the song were on and I feel like I need oxygen. It is so embarrasing. One more thing, fibrofog? Are there any brain exercises to improve this symptom? Thanks gang!!!!!!

So glad you are doing well! Pregnancy is so hard on the body, it must be especially hard with fibro symptoms on top of the pregnancy ones. Are you taking prenatal vitamins? I am sure you are getting regular blood work -- but my worst shortness of breath was when I became anemic and I know pregancy can rob your iron stores, but if you are on vitamins, you should probably be fine. All I can say is try to excercise when you can and get your rest in, too. Eat well. You seem to have a positive attitude and I am sure that will do you good in the long run. Sorry I can't help you more with things to help your symptoms. (oh, on the brain excercises, I try to play games that I hope keeps up the mental dexterity. I play Soduku and word games on the computer at night and do the puzzles in the newspaper in the morning. Having down time playing games at night actually helps me relax. Reading books also helps keep your brain active. )
