Stomach upset : Unfortunately, there may not be a simple answer to this. You will benefit from a full physical and lab work to see if there is a underlying process contributing to your symptoms... for example a H. Pylori infection. You may also be referred to a gastroenterologist for further evaluation.

Should I be concerned about belly pain and bleeding at two months?

Yes: Bleeding in the first trimester suggests possible miscarriage. It can also be due to other causes. Cramping and bleeding together are worrisome. In all cases it is best for women to contact their OB providers for an evaluation and diagnosis.

Yes: A supportive bra won't hurt and could definitely help. Other important things to try are pregnancy yoga, wearing flat comfortable shoes, and sleeping with a pillow between your legs.

Do pain relief patches still expose me to high doses of acetaminophen?

No: I don't know of any pain patches that contain tylenol or acetaminophen. They may contain fentanyl, a narcotic, or a NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory). To be sure, if you are using over-the-counter patches, read the label carefully. If you are being prescribed patches, ask your doctor.

My baby cries whenever I put her to sleep on her tummy, they say I have to do that 4 her lungs to be strong?

Who told you that ?: The american academy of pediatrics & many other advisory groups have promoted sleeping on a babies back since the early 90's. Since that time we have seen a 40-50% drop in crib death over that period. I know of no one that advises belly sleeping for any reason, although if baby rolls into that position after 6m i don't try to change it. Tummy time while awake can help build upper body strength.
