Sheesh - you'd think I could remember I'm in 3T (31 weeks today) and post this in the right spot...
So, I have two questions. First, what are your thoughts on taking a fish oil supplement to get the Omega 3 fatty acids? I have heard from a lot of people it's really important to take that for healthy brain development in 3T. I am also now getting baby center updates saying the same thing. I'll ask my doc on Thursday but I'd like your thoughts and to know what all of you are doing. Second question - I had a lot of pain on Saturday down in the pelvic region. What happened is that I went for an hour long walk (brisk) and then came home and started cleaning pretty vigorously. Shortly after that I was in such pain I could hardly walk. It felt like the baby's head was pushing straight down or something. I have taken the last few days off from working out and I plan to ask my doc about it on Thursday (I wish they'd just call me back so I could ask them now...are all doctors offices this useless when it comes to returning calls?). Anyway, I wanted to work out through the whole pregnancy but I do not want to cause premature labor. What are your thoughts? Is pain normal? Or am I pushing too hard and should I quit working out?
