A LONG TRIP TO THE HOSPITAL
Well I'm only 7 months pregnant, so right now the last thing I would want to do is... go to the hospital! For the last few days I've been having a lot of lower back pain. Assuming that it is completely normal b/c I'm in my third trimester and the baby is obviously growly rapidly now, I just decided to brush it off. Well, tuesday night was almost unbearable! Mark and I were watching a movie and I kept having to switch positions or stand up for a few min etc etc. But once again I just figured that I'm kinda a baby and every pregnant girl goes through pains like these. Now today was a diff. story! I woke up (ready to pack all day since we are moving in two days) and the pain had multiplied. Mark was so nice, but I on the other hand was a rollercoaster! One min. I was crying and the next I was super ornery. We tried tylenol, heating pads, icyhot, swimming, a massage, a bath etc. but nothing seemed to work. I just kept thinking... omg if this is what I'm going to feel for the next 2 months!!!!! Finally at 7pm we were driving down to provo to drop mark off at school and I was going to go register at babiesRus when I just couldn't take it anymore! We called the Doc and he told me to go into the ER. After much mental punishment of me telling myself I'm such a baby... your not even in labor!! I was relieved to find out that I had a kidney stone and the pain is often compared to or worse than labor contractions! I guess I'll be able to compare them myself in a few months! :-) Sorry for such a super long post!! I'm feeling good as new now... I just have my fingers crossed that I don't have to go back tomorrow! (I guess its possible that it hasn't completely passed yet) Anyway, I am so grateful that the baby is ok and it was just me!!! they said her heartrate is perfect and kidney stones couldn't effect her :-) I think I'm starting to realize that I really would do anything for her!
