Anybody else having occasional tingly/numbness sensations in their arm? perhaps it's because I work at a desk half the day but I think it might be from resting my arm/elbow against the desk. I did some basic research around the interwebs and found that it's somewhat normal. I feel like i'm having a first pregnancy again because everything is so different i'm looking almost every little thing up! not a big deal i guess but obnoxious!
Yes! My midwife with dd2 said that when your blood vessels are bigger from more blood volume, a slight compression makes them think they are being cut off, when they aren't really. Something like the amount it takes normally is perceived differently by the nerves, or something? She recommended really watching my hydration levels, and it did help.
more of these for sure.
it is a version of hell here right now. i'm making Monty Python 'bring out your dead' jokes. 2 kids have made it past the fever and just are tired. my cough started tonight and my sweet almost 3 year old is feverish tonight. and my almost 6 year old has been in rough shape all day.
Ugh. We did that over Christmas break, and it was awful. I do not envy you one tiny bit. You take whatever breaks you have to because you totally deserve it.
I'm just going to throw this out there. We were miserable (still have coughs), and two of our friends' families got sick right after us. One family wound up taking their one year old to the ER because of breathing issues, and it turned out he has RSV. He's now in the hospital for the second night with low oxygen and breathing issues. He is improving. I read that vit D deficiency can allow a worse case of it, and perhaps it is going around. Maybe we didn't have it, maybe you don't, but since you have a little guy, I thought I'd put a bug in your ear about it. Most people get it by age 2 with no issue, though it does not confer lifelong immunity.
