My stomach is so sore and nothing seems to relieve the pain. Strangely, I'm more sore in my upper abdomen...just below my boobs. I was wondering if it's ok to put a heating pad on my stomach or if it's bad for the baby. Does anyone know?
In short, it basically says you really shouldn't put the heating pad directly on your stomach/abdomen. I bet your doctor would let you know (I'm only 11 weeks pregnant and it seems like every day I think of an "is it safe?" question to ask my doctor).
i think it would be ok, if you just did it for a bit, like 5 minutes or less. they use to say no hot baths (had to be luke warm) but now the say just as long as you don't overheat yourself. my dr recommeded a heating pad for my sore back
