"Oh pregnancy is so easy!" Isn't that the general attitude I've been splashing all over my blog?
Well, joke's on me...cause I completely fucked up my hip.
I didn't even DO anything to it, I just...did too much one day.
I've mentioned we're doing some house projects before baby comes, A LOT of house projects.
One of them involved patching, texturing and painting 5 different holes in 5 different walls in 5 different paint colors.
You can see why we've been putting that off...getting 5 different colors of paint out is a pain in the ass.
Anyway, we finally started the damn project and I spent all day going up and down stairs, up and down a step ladder, squatting and moving and just generally "busy" doing one thing or another.
I rested when I felt tired, at no point did anything hurt, but obviously I hurt something because at 3am OMG, I thought I was going to die.
I got up to pee and as soon as I stood up pain shot out from my right hip in EVERY DIRECTION so that my entire middle from mid-thigh to belly button was screaming in pain.
And then I had a Braxton Hicks contraction.
So that I was under the illusion that my uterus hurt as well.
ODDLY ENOUGH I did not think I was in labor, BUT I decided right then and there that if labor hurt THAT MUCH I was not going to make it through the ordeal au naturale.
I'm really dramatic at 3am.
When I got back in bed the pain went away if I stayed in one position but anytime I tried to move, sharp shooting pains from my hip had me almost in tears.
I was convinced I had somehow dislocated my pelvis or my hip...except surely that would require an "incident" in which you knew you dislocated said pelvis right?
Yesterday the pain continued whenever I moved, walking was especially painful.
Pregnancy is no longer easy.
As the pain dissipates I can tell you now that I seem to have strained/pulled my ligaments that hold my uterus up. You guys know how round ligament pain hurt like a bitch sometimes? Well, my round ligaments, both front and back are UPSET and holy shit they hurt!
I can't put on underwear without help.
Pregnancy is awesome.
