So yesterday I decided to brave the weather and take DS to the pool. He's been begging and I kept putting it off. But I figure maybe my hips would feel better...boy was I wrong! At one point I tried climbing out of the toddler pool to get a drink of water and lifting my leg to the ledge (1ft 6in) I heard (very audible) and felt a crack in my pubic bone. It stung, but no more that like when you pop a joint, stings then goes away pretty quickly. So I told DS to keep swimming and I was going to rest on the chair and watch him for a while.
Well the pain kept getting worse and was radiating all the way around my hips and to my lower back/tailbone area. So I packed up DS and came home to call the doc. They told me to go on in to L&D to be evaluated and make sure it wasn't anything serious. So DH came home, we took DS to my SIL and headed over.
Spent a long time on the monitors...everything good there! I'm only 20% and 0cm, still high and tight. Regular contractions, but not strong or productive.
Basically I dislocated the pelvic something or other bones there. So now I have to limit everything I do because of the pain, mostly hanging out on the couch and stuff. Like that's easy with a 3 year old. All day cartoons here I come I guess. What really sucks is standing, sitting up straight or laying on my side exaggerates the pain. A semi-reclined position seems to be the most comfy...but we don't have a recliner! lol So I'm propped up on the couch with tons of pillows all around trying to get comfy. And DH is a little sad because that means (in his words) "I can't help bring on labor now."
The only meds I can take is Tylenol and hope for the best, but it's not helping. Not even dulling it. Still really sore and achy this morning. Not as bad today as last night, but still really yuck. I've got an appt at 11:30 to go in and see my doctor for another evaluation. I'm really considering asking her about setting an end date sometime next week if I've not gone by then. I'm just in constant pain and it's impossible to do anything with DS because of it.
