I SURVIVED WEEK 2
Oh you guys, this week has been INSANE! Probably up to par with having been 34 weeks (now 35)!
I seriously thought this might be the week baby comes because I’ve never been in so much discomfort and pain! …I’ll get to that in a sec!
I don’t know if you’re the kinda crazy that includes God in their private conversations, But I definitely found myself doing that this week a lot! At one point, I was so irritable from pain & discomfort that I decided to stop everything I was doing and hop in a warm shower. (Showers & baths are magical for me).
I was having really mean contractions in the shower (Wasn’t wearing my monitor in the shower though, cause you’re not supposed to) and I just very seriously and matter-of-fact attitude exclaimed to God and said “Okay, either let this baby come out right now safe & sound or you need to make my body chill and make me comfortable like now. “ 😂😬… I was willing to get smitten for my sass too 🙈. Also notice, how I didn’t ask for more patience. Cause that’s a trap!
…. I’m going crazy!
Anyway, things escalated on Friday night. I was having irregular but mean contractions, I was having the WORST sciatica nerve pain I’ve ever felt in life, and I felt like I had been trickling liquid through out the day (very sporadically, but still). So finally I told Chris: “Pack your laptop, and let’s call our friends to watch over Leo cause we’re about to spend Friday night in the ER.”
I didn’t think baby was coming, but something was off.
NOT ENOUGH RAP SONGS ABOUT FRIDAY NIGHT IN THE ER
We get to the hospital, got admitted to L&B Triage, and they start running tests!!!
The staff was super amazing and accommodating.
Once they were done poking and prodding me, Chris and I popped out the laptop and started catching up on the newest Bachelorette Season and we just waited for the results to come back.
About an hour later the nurse comes in and asks me
”Have you ever passed a kidney stone?”
I’m like “nah”
and she says “Well it looks like you’re about to experience it !”
So! Kidney Stones!
That’s were all my latest contractions, the sciatica pain, and even the random trickling was coming from!
You guys….. Kidney stones are a Bi***!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also din’t think the pain could get worse! My latest trips to the bathroom to empty my bladder, have been…. I don’t even have the words!
Scary? Fire? Horrible? Painful? … I’m scared to pee now, thats for sure.
It feels like my body is trying to get rid of something full-force but with no way out and you get mean contractions with it. Very painful & uncomfortable.
Apparently, Its super common to get kidney stones during pregnancy because of calcium build up. And the ironic thing is, Because my morning sickness was so bad the first trimester, I was lacking calcium, so I was put on calcium supplements starting the 2nd trimester….! Well it caught up! Haha!
This pregnancy has been a bag of tricks to say the least.
Anyways, after doing my research on kidney stones while pregnant, I read that the pain can get so bad, that it can cause you to go into labor! 😳 How crazy is that!!! I’m kinda hoping it at least moves the timeline closer cause I’M SO DONE!!!!! I’M DONE I’M DONE I’M DONE!
WEEK 2 - DATA
Here’s my data for this week! I’m thinking I’m gonna start wearing this baby all day long. At least during this Kidney Stone storm, just to be safe.
If you still haven’t gotten on the bandwagon of this awesome Pregnancy Tracker + Contraction Monitor, I’ll be the little push you need. This device has not only been helpful to understand my contractions, but it’s brought me a piece of mind to know the Length, Timing, and Rhythm of my contractions. I’m looking forward to see how this all progresses as I get closer to my due date!
