Yes: Most over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) should be avoided during pregnancy, especially during the 3rd trimester, due to increased risk of complications in the newborn. However, nsaids are considered safe during nursing. Some prescription nsaids can be dangerous for the nursing infant. As always, ask your pediatrician.

Get better soon: Most women will have severe fatigue in the first 3 months of pregnancy. For most, the tiredness will go away by 14 weeks. Giving in to the fatigue and taking naps or getting to bed early is the best idea.

Outsmart them!: To bed earlier. Try variety! eat with them! give them what tastes good like home made protein smoothies with fresh fruit juices and whey protein powder. Almond butter with toast. Avoid breakfast out of a box! make some turkey bacon. Play some upbeat music and get them going. Good luck!
