The only thing I have been told to do so far is to take VICODON for the pain, but there has to be something else that can be done! I really dont feel safe taking pain medication through out my whole pregnancy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
Vicodin did nothing for me when I was dealing with a flare up. I have yet to be pregnant so I cannot offer any advice from that point of view.

I would ask one of the experts, (Dr Rosen?) they may have some advice. I would try swimming that would probably help with other issues related to the pregnancy as well.
