What an adventure this pregnancy has been! I had my 37 week appointment and am still dilated at a 3! Taking it easy over the past week seemed to have helped!
My rib pain has been getting worse and worse. I have a high tolerance for pain and it got to a point where I didn't think it was just the baby getting in my ribs. The pain was also spreading to my back/shoulder. And Tylenol didn't help at all. So I did a little research and talked with my doctor, come to find out it is more than likely my gallbladder. Since I am so far along my doctor said a surgeon would want to wait until after the baby comes so to try to tough it out until he comes. (Easier said then done, ha!) I told Devan last night that I was so excited for the baby to come because then I might be able to get a little more sleep (hoping the baby coming out will help with the pain), then I just laughed at myself!! Who wishes for a newborn so they can get more sleep??? Oh me! Because the pain right now is that bad!! BOO!
Now that I am 37 weeks I am hoping to be a little more active to see if I can get this baby to come on his own! This morning I woke up full of energy and was able to get tons of stuff done around the house and even mowed the lawn!! Then my energy ran out about half way through the day and now I'm blogging, AKA taking it easy again, ha! Joys of pregnancy!
