I understand what you mean...it's a tough thing when everyone starts to write off your high-risk pregnancy and you haven't even begun to contemplate that reality.

That said, ibuprofen isn't such a no-no. We've talked about this before, but try going to www.motherisk.org and you will see a long list of medications that are perfectly fine in pregnancy, and a bunch for colds, etc.

They study these things very extensively and if you want to get ahold of them by phone for an individual consult, let me know, and I'll tell you how to become an "honourary canadian" so you can get it for free, hehe.


I drank my first cup of coffee after six months when I found out! It was like I was rebelling! I felt guilty almost immediately, still feel guilty, can you believe that!


Hey, you there? Are you in the middle of moving?
