So this is my first kid ever. I am worried because I have an infection the doctor didn't know where it was coming from. But I am on medicne. Also he put me on perkaset. Is it okay to take perkaset? Also I am worried that beacause I keep getting sharp pains in my rib cage area. Is it normal for so much pain? Also ehat does it mean when the baby's heart 170 and been high as 177? Yes it does seem I am a parnoid freak, but I want a healthy baby.

Im not sure about the medication. If you have doubts call the nurse or speak to the pharmacist.

The pains are normal. Things are moving up to make room for baby. I have some kind of stretching pain every few days. It gets annoying but just means your baby is growing.

My baby's heartrate is always in the 160's.

As always if you have any concerns dont be afraid to call your doc. They have heard all kinds of questions and that is what they are there for.

Yeah I am so worried. Cause sometimes I cannot even sleep. And the pain is 95% of the time in my back behind the rib cage the other 5% is in my ribs. Now I know in my rib cage is normal. I am seeing my doctor tomorrow. I am just worried. Cause they trying to put me on bed rest and I am 14 weeks lol.
