Friday night I had my first "pain" experience in my pregnancy and let me tell you, it was NOT fun!

Thankfully, even though I have entered the uncomfortable stage at times in my pregnancy, I haven't had anything super painful happen that I read about that "could/should" happen by this time.

Friday night, Bryan and I went to eat dinner and my back started to hurt a little. I got home but was still pretty uncomfortable. We were sitting on the couch, watching t.v when all of a sudden I had this sharp, shooting pain, radiating on the right side of my back. I got up and started to walk around, hoping that would help. I bent over, stretched everything, and nothing was helping. It was almost like a bad cramp. I finally had to beg Bryan to massage my back and I was literally in so much pain that I was crying! I have never felt anything like that! I worried Bryan so much that he was asking if we needed to go to the hospital or call my OBGYN, but I said no. I knew Abigail was fine.

Bryan made me go lay down in bed and massaged my back. We tried to pinpoint a specific spot that was hurting, but it literally hurt everywhere. It got a little better, so we tried a bath with epsom salts, then I tried heating pads. After the shooting pain stopped, it was more just really sore. I took some Tylenol and then went to bed. Thankfully, the next morning I felt much better!

From what I can gather, Abigail must have been on some nerve. It wasn't sciatica pain, because it never raidiated down my butt or legs. I also never had any numbness anywhere. All I know is that I sure hope that doesn't happen again!

Round ligament pain! This landed me in the ER with Addi. You did all the right things for it.
