[ - ] I am 8 weeks pregnant and am having a dull, achy pain in the right side of my back. Do you think this is anything to worry about? Part of the reason that I am worried is because I have been getting up twice every night to pee and for the past two nights I have only gotten up once. I appreciate your thoughts on this. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I would not worry about this at all. Sometimes you'll get up twice, sometimes not at all, to pee. Your uterus will lift off your bladder in a few weeks and you'll not have to pee so much until the 3rd trimester. Do you think your pain is a kidney problem?? [ Reply | More ]

NP: My 5YO DS still has pragmatic speech issues. Truth is at 3YO he was not nearly as verbal as you say your DD is. But what speech he had was not very functional as well. But I tell you as he has aged and with therapy it has become so much better. As I said he still has difficulty and mostly being understood rather then his understanding of what people say. I'm told by everyone it will take time but most kids like that do get better. Also he just had a speech eval a couple of months ago and you know he tested great.

Thank you. He sounds a lot like my DD. She is speech delayed (mild delay), but as I said - great vocab.

During the time that my 3 yo was transitioning out of her nap it was really hellish. She was very sleep deprived. Either she would conk out at 6 pm and wake up at 10 pm for a few hours, or she would go right to bed at 730 pm and sleep until 5 or 530 am. Just do your best to keep a routine and avoid letting them nap late in the afternoon. Eventually, we settled into a 730 pm bedtime and my former early bird will sleep until 830 or 9 am.
