my doctor let me use a heating pad, because I was in preterm labor, but u cant feel the heat from it,, ur stomach gets hot, but u cant feel it, so I said scew it...lol so instead I put a hot cloth on.. that worked better.

How far along r u?

16 weeks my upper back hurts so bad it even hurts when i take a deep breath. plus i've had a cold for 2 weeks doctor said as long as i dont have a fever i'm ok but i dont seem to be getting better only more aches. i know tylenol is safe but i really dont want to take it every day you know

My dr. recommended a heating pad for my lower back when I was pg with my son.  Don't leave it on your tummy...heat is especially dangerous to the fetus during the first 12 weeks....
