A Short Little Update


Last night after I wrote my pregnancy update I started experiencing that horrible lower back pain I had the other night yet again. I tried a lot of different things to stop it but nothing seemed to be working. I couldn't get comfortable at all no matter what way I sat, laid, or moved around - it felt like someone was repeatedly stabbing me in the lower right hand side of my back. I have a pretty high pain tolerance (or so I've been told) and it was bringing tears to my eyes. I eventually ended up at the ER where we found out immediately that baby was fine - they plopped me into a wheelchair as soon as I got there because they were afraid I was in labor...too funny. After several hours and a few tests, I was diagnosed with a very severe urinary tract infection. Thankfully I didn't have to be admitted but was instead sent home with medicine to start taking immediately. They also gave me a prescription for pain medicine but stupid me took it on an empty stomach and got the shakes so bad I thought I was having a seizure. It was really frightening and I felt like Mister Babe was sluggish the rest of the day...so I probably won't be taking any more of that! I spent all yesterday just laying on the couch with Ellie, guzzling down my water & antibiotics, and napping. I felt somewhat more human today and I'm hoping tomorrow is even better...because this household definitely needs my attention! :)
