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!

I'm so glad that everything is okay! Sucks super bad that you had a kidney stone, but glad you are okay non-the-less!
When you have the baby, please PROMISE me you will tell me which one is worse! (pain wise, obviously having a baby is soooo much better!) I've needed to know the answer to this for ages! And now I have someone who can tell me!
Hope things continue to stay good for you, and I pray you don't have to deal with kidney stones anymore! That's just no fun!
Take care!

Scary! I'm glad everything is ok. Kidney stones are aweful. I hate to tell you this but labor is much worse. But you will quickly forget once the little one is here. Don't strain to much with the move!
