does your child need a doctor right now?
Having three kids under the age of six is quite exciting. We never have a dull moment in our house and often have injuries and illnesses that need to be tended to by a doctor. I have learned a lot over the past six years about when a child needs to be seen by a doctor immediately and when certain things can wait until their regular pediatrician is available. I created this blog to help other parents learn about the injuries and illnesses that their children may experience when a doctor isn't available to take a child to whenever these things happen.
Congratulations on your pregnancy! For the next few months, you will be counseled in how to eat healthily and instructed to avoid a list of foods and substances that can potentially harm your developing baby. However, the days when pregnant women were barred from physical activity are long gone. According to the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, healthy women with healthy pregnancies should remain active and exercise throughout their pregnancy.
If you find yourself tired throughout the day, no matter how many hours of sleep you get, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder which makes it difficult for you to get a restful night's sleep. While you may feel as if you slept through the night, you may have been woken up hundreds of times because of the apnea. Daytime exhaustion and loud snoring are two signs that you may be suffering from sleep apnea.
