So I have been having back pain for months, but now the pain has spread to my hips and leg sockets. Then today, I had some wicked contractions that were really painful and had to stop what I was doing. Which was teaching so all my kids are asking me, "Mrs. Stevens, are you ok?" "Is the baby kicking you really hard?" LOL
So today I had an appointment and I saw the NP. She was a little concerned about dilation so she did a pelvic exam. Sure enough I am really soft and starting to dilate, but just about a fingertip to a 1. They are sending me to PT for the pain I am in. I really can't go up stairs hardly at all and just walking is an effort. My leg sockets feel like they are on fire. She said, "you know, you are only 26 weeks." I was like, uh yeah I know! I feel like a big whiny baby, but I am in some serious pain. I have a high pain tolerance, so that is saying something. She said the doctors would talk about putting me on limited work status. OY!
