I have been thinking that the last several months worth of pelvic pain and pressure were the result of the baby and a casualty of being hugely pregnant. I even went so far in my head to assume that because I was older and on my 3rd kid that my body was just worn out (partially true…). When, in fact, this is classic pelvic girdle pain.
Today, I finally realized that the cramps and my inability to walk, get out of the car quickly, put my pants on easily, bend down, climb the stairs, or get up from a sitting position – that this was not a normal part of being pregnant. Neither is the pain I have been feeling in my groin.
Today, the pain is so bad that I can barely walk. Each step causes me to wince and grimace. While at the park today, Spencer feel off a high area, did a mid air flip and landed on his head and back on the ground. I witnessed the entire fall, and was close enough that I decided to attempt to run over so I could comfort him quicker. That was a noble idea–but a huge mistake. He is OK, and not hurt seriously, luckily. But, I am in tremendous pain.
I hope that some rest this evening remedies my woes. Tomorrow’s agenda is to research how to make the waiting game easier, and my birth as comfortable as it can be.
