  Pregnancy Diary – Week 14

Posted by: Alyson @ 10:02 pm

This week, the major organs are fully in place and now baby will start to grow rapidly. In the next couple of weeks, you’ll be able to tell the gender of the baby. Baby is around the size of a fist and weighs about an ounce. Your baby now can make a fist and his neck is starting to develop. The bones start to Alyson's Pregnancy Diaryharden now, too. Be sure to get plenty of calcium to ensure that your baby has enough to grow properly. If you’re exercising, be sure to drink plenty of water. You don’t want to over-exert yourself, or get dehydrated.

Women who work on computers may find that they develop carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is swelling and inflammation in the wrist and fingers, causing pain and discomfort. Because of the increased swelling in your body, you’re prone to developing it. The symptoms should go away shortly after delivery, however, until then, here are a couple of tips to help alleviate the pain:

1. Take breaks frequently to avoid getting stiff
2. Get an ergonomic keyboard
3. Take Tylenol (speak to your doctor before)
4. Wear an ace bandage while you work
5. Get a cushion that positions your hands to hand downward as opposed to an upright position

In response to the question, “I often get headaches from sitting at my desk at work. I find that aspirin is lasts the longest. Can I take it?” – Sabrina L. from Virginia

Most pain relievers, such as ibuprofen, aspirin, and prescription drugs should not be taken. Tylenol is really the only medication you can take (consult your doctor before taking). If you find the headaches are severe, talk to your doctor about different options. However, aspirin should be avoided during pregnancy.
