Well Im pregnant for the first time and couldnt be more miserable with the whole thing.
My husband and I are married and although children were part of the plan it wasnt supposed to happen for at least another year. I got pregnant on the pill just a few weeks before our wedding on Sep 7th. Im about 14 weeks now.
For starters the morning sickness has been awful for me. Like vomiting 8-10 times a day not able to keep anything down awful. Its finally just now subsiding at week 14 so yay for that I guess. Sucks :(
Then there is the newly developed back pain. Its not like your run of the mill ouch my back must have pulled/twisted something but more like holy crap I think I just got hit by a train someone please put me out of my misery type pain :( I've been laid up in bed for 3 days now and its not getting better at all. It starts in my lower back and travels into my right hip and leg making it almost impossible to walk. I can barely get up and down myself today. Its been kinda coming and going, always there but sometimes much more severe then other times.
Everyone keeps telling me its my body adjusting to the baby etc and I know some back pain is normal but my god should I seriously be in this much pain? This morning I laid on my bed and cried for 15 mins because I couldnt get my pants on
I've done some reading and Im trying to stay active but its hard considering I can barely get down the hallway to the bathroom without clutching at the walls for support. Standing is getting to the point where its unbearable and laying down is no better. Its keeping me up nights and Tylenol is barely touching the pain.
Im considering a trip to the docters if I think Im up to the 45 min ride in the car as sitting upright is especially painful but Im nervous their just going to tell me its part of pregnancy and to deal with it.
Hubby at least has been great through it all. He's working 11 hour days so he's gone all day but luckily we just gave up our crappy apartment to save some money and moved into my moms so there are lots of people around to fetch me things and help me move around if I need it.
Sorry for the big long everyone feel bad for me post :( I know I probably sound like a baby but seriously, this hurts and I had to rant as everyone in my house is sick of hearing about it.
Anyone have any words of wisdom or similar experiences? Would love to hear, horseforum is about the only thing that's been getting my mind off the pain.
