In general pregnant women are advised to limit intake of many types of fish due to toxic chemicals or metals accumulating in their tissue. You are still in the phase of pregnancy wher defects can occur. So I wouldn't eat it. Pregnant or not. ...Read more

Everytime someone helps me or does something nice I get this tingling tickle pleasurable sensation from my neck and whole back, explanation causes??
The Pleasure center: In YOUR brain is connected to your neck which in turn is connected to your back and triggers what you've heard people talk about as that "warm fuzzy feeling inside." Personally, when I see a movie with a particularly emotional scene or a parent lamenting over their child with Cancer and break down...I get a tingly sensation in my nose. Strong emotions can provoke funny feelings of all types. ...Read more

Assertiveness skills: I agree...... We have to develop a "back bone, " to value who we are, be confident in ourselves, and learn to stand up for what we deserve. We all can benefit from assertiveness training, and develop the necessary skills of a person with "back bone." you can do it with an individual therapist or in a group process. Look for a psychologist with expertise in assertiveness training. ...Read more

I am 28 week pregnant. I feel lot of pain in my back. I am not sporty. It would be nice if you also advise me the exercises to reduce the pain.
May not be muscle: Advanced pregnancy often causes back pain.Usually, pain is mechanical-due to stretching of ligaments as hormones cause their relaxation in preparation for birth. Rather than exercises, I often treat these pains w/ gentle osteopathic manipulation to guide bones back. It's highly effective-better than exercise, since weak muscles are rarely the issue. Some chiropractors are good, too; many are too rough ...Read more
My nipples are little big and soft and if I squeeze them they shrink like if I got the chills. After they grow back. Could this be gyno or a fat tissue?
Sounds normal.: Even for boys, nipples react to touch and temperature. Stimulating nipple tissue causes the smooth muscle fibers to contract, shrinking the skin. When the stimulus wears off, the tissue relaxes again and expands. If you are in the early phases of puberty, you may have some extra glandular tissue behind the nipple, but that will resolve. Being overweight will increase the size of the nipples also. ...Read more
Distracted: Occasionally your baby may not be hungry and just wants to pacify so staying on the breast is not as important. She may then pull away at any distraction around her at that moment. This can occur even if she is hungry, but getting older, and therefore more aware of her surroundings, pulling away to a sound or see something close to where you are feeding. ...Read more
Likely normal: I believe that you're referring to hard little lumps behind the baby's nipples. If this is the case, it is common for infants to have a slight swelling of the mammary tissue behind the nipples. This is caused by response to hormones in the baby's body. Especially for infants who are breast-feeding, the maternal hormones can cause this response. They may also be different sizes; this is common. ...Read more
If he/she is full:
If your baby has a strong suck, can take 2-3 ounces in 10 to 15 minutes, and is full afterward, then that nipple works.
You can spend a lot of money on a nipple, but in most cases, it's not necessary.
Stick with the basic nipple and have some patience with feeding your baby. Experiment with new nipples if your baby is not feeding well with the present one. ...Read more
