Aches and Pains

So since last week one of the ribs on my right side all the way through my back has been hurting me seriously badly. I had a dr.'s appointment on Friday where I was going to ask him what was going on and if there was anything I could do about it, but I guess he was in a hurry that day because he didn't give me a chance to ask not one question. So I decided to wait it out through the weekend to see if it eased up at all. Well, no it didn't. By Sunday night, I was constantly in pain and all night long too, so I hardly could sleep or find a comfortable position. So I looked up some information online to see if anybody else had the same problem and what helped them, and started seeing that a lot of my symptoms sounded like gallstones. Then I was a little bit nervous/worried and so I called the doctor Monday morning and they had me come in. The doctor thought I might have a bladder infection, so he had me do a urine test to see. That came back negative. My mom was getting pretty concerned, so she made me call back and ask them about gallstones. So they made an appointment for an ultrasound today to see. Did that this afternoon. No gallstones.

I'm frustrated.

The ultrasound lady thought I had probably pulled a muscle really bad, or something had detached or something like that. I'm not allowed to pick up anything over 20 pounds (i.e. SAM). And I'm kind of back at square one, still in a lot of pain, but not knowing why. (At least I don't have gallstones--what a relief!) (Although now I feel like I just sound like a baby, the pain sounded a lot more legitimate when it could be gallstones! haha)

I've been trying really hard to take it easy and not "over strain" myself. But hello?! I'm a single parent right now, how the heck do I take it easy?! Its not like my husband can come home at night and I can rest for awhile, sheesh! (Besides the fact that I REALLY REALLY want to get stuff done, and be busy to pass the time. Its not really that great just sitting around huge and pregnant waiting for a baby to come, when you have a crib that needs painting, and shelves that need hanging, and decorating that needs doing...)

Well, sorry for the whining; hopefully soon I will feel better (yeah, in like two weeks when this baby's out right?!) and pray for me that this pain will go away fast! (Maybe I should just take the Vicadin the doctor prescribed huh?)

2 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:

Oh girl I am so sorry that you are in pain. It is frustrating to not know what it is but to know you are in pain. Interesting that I am going through the same thing but I am not preggers. I wish I was there to help you out. I can paint and hang. :) oh man i miss you. Have I mentioned that? I will try and call you soon. In the mean time I will say a prayer for you.
