Patient discussion about actualization

Q. My friend told me that people who allergic to dust are actually allergic to small insect. Is he fooling with me?

A. thanks :)

Q. It’s actually a real source of irritation to me. I can't stand. Any such experiences…. The cesarean incision done on my body is really sensitive. I avoid touching it. I try to wear clothes that come up over my scar line, and I hate it when my son steps on the area when we're playing. It’s actually a real source of irritation to me. I can't stand. Any such experiences….

A. I don't think I had sensitivity like you. As far as I can remember I was able to wear jeans once it healed. One thing that does set off the sensitivity for me is when my brother`s dog of the right height jumps on me and puts their claws over the area. I wish to know is that area sensitive or paining? Both make a lot of difference. Better consult with your physician.

Q. I wanted to know that do we have really very high pain and when does the pain actually starts? I am a very happy lady and more joyous when I found a baby inside me and soon I guess in 2 month I will see my child…now I am preparing for the last round of my pregnancy and before labor I wanted to know that do we have really very high pain and when does the pain actually starts?

A. Agree with elsa. It varies in each woman. some studies has proven that pregnant moms who are keep on exercising before and during pregnancy will have a significant reduction in labor pain.

even if you're a lil bit scared about the labor pain, you can consult that with your ob-gyn doctor, to help you look through the delivery process options. you can have vaginal delivery, or caesarean section, or regional anesthesia, etc.

good luck, and stay healthy always..
