Baby Crib

Hubby and I are looking for baby's crib in the mall.There are different types of baby's crib but we prefer to buy an adjustable baby crib.I look up different designs there is a convertible crib to bed or chair, curve footings that you can swing your baby or a fixed footings .I plan to buy an adjustable baby crib  with fixed footings because it is safer for my baby girl especially if she can sit and walk.

What Kind of Therapist is Right for me

I feel pain in my left arm.I do not know what happen  as it suddenly ache when I try to twist or left an object.I told hubby to massage my arm but still I can feel the pain.I drop the object I am holding.When, I had my last visit to my OB I ask her if  it is  fine for me  to have a therapy in my arm.She told me "Yes" provided no medicine should I intake.I forgot to ask what kind of therapist should I go. A physical therapist or massage therapist? I am  confused the function of  the two so I tried to look up the difference of their job.

Massage therapist :focus on the manipulation of body tissues by manual methods to assist the body in its natural processes of pain reduction,improved health and well-being , stress reduction and healing trauma.

Physical therapist : uses equipment and apparatus to facilitate the rehabilitation of specific physical injury to the body and measures its progress.

Now, it is clear to me where should I go to relieve the pain of my left arm.

I had a bad night this week. My cough is killing me at midnight or at dawn.I sleep early but I get awake because  I feel that I am having a short breath.My  throat itches ever! Hubby also get awake , it takes 2 hours or more I never stop coughing.Hubby give me a warm water with salt to gargle to relieve my throat after a minute it  itches again .If I wake up at midnight it is difficult to sleep back.If I get awake at dawn I cannot sleep back . I eat citrus fruits and drink plenty of water but still this cough likes to stay with me.It is difficult to take away cough and cold nowadays maybe because of the weather.In the morning I feel good no cough, no throat itches.Hubby, told me to visit my OB  for medication because we do not know the right meds  for pregnant.Today, I gonna go to my OB for check up .
I hope I can get rest coughing tonight.
