jwowwPoor JWoww. Sounds like the girl's had a rough pregnancy. From the Jersey Shore star's rude dig by TMZ to her awful morning sickness, carrying a baby girl has been anything but sunshine and roses for Woww. And now, eight-and-a-half months into her pregnancy, Jenni revealed that, in addition to everything else, she's suffering from painful sciatica (think an uncomfortable burning feeling radiating down your spine, leg, and butt -- fun!).

Adding insult to injury, in an effort to ease the pain of her sciatica, JWoww managed to give herself frostbite so bad that it ripped some of the skin off her her back (ick, see below). That's correct, the reality star gave herself frostbite mid-June. Doctors advised the mama-to-be to take Tylenol, which is generally considered safe during pregnancy, but JWoww wasn't having it. "Even though my doctor said it is okay to take Tylenol, I like to avoid it all costs," she said. "So instead I tried an ice pack with a cloth side."

Although the results of Jenni's homemade sciatica remedy were ... less than ideal, you've gotta give the girl credit for going with her gut and avoiding Tylenol, even though her doc told her it was okay. (And sciatica can be painful.) Just because something is deemed "safe," doesn't mean all pregnant women will be comfortable with it. And, like in Jenni's case, if you're not, better to avoid it or peace of mind if nothing else.

But man, that frostbite looked painful.

Have you ever taken Tylenol during pregnancy?
