Hello again friends!
I thought that instead of my regular Friday post I would let you know where I've been the last couple days. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you may already know that I ended up in the hospital with the most painful thing I have ever experienced...kidney stones.
On Tuesday evening I started getting really bad back pain that quickly escalated to unbearable pain and landed me in Labour and Delivery. My midwife was awesome and met Ivan and I there to make sure everything was ok with the baby (it was) and then stayed all the way until midnight when my results came back and I was admitted to the hospital for the night. I really can't thank her enough for hanging around.
On Wednesday I had a renal ultrasound to confirm that I had a kidney stone, as well as an NST and an ultrasound to check on the baby. Clearly the kidney stones were not bothering our little guy at all because all signs pointed to a happy baby, thank goodness!
I was sent home late Wednesday night with instructions to drink tons of water until the stone passed. I am crossing my fingers that it is out of my system because I haven't had any pain since yesterday afternoon.
Seriously guys, never get a kidney stone. I feel like I have a pretty high pain tolerance but this was just the worst thing I have ever felt in my life. A lot of people told me it is worse than labour and I am going to believe them because I don't want to worry that labour is going to hurt that much. I mean, if it does at least it won't be as constant as the kidney stone pain and at least I will get something awesome at the end instead of something that gets flushed down the toilet without me even seeing it. Haha, sorry, was that gross?
Anyways, I am back to feeling pretty normal and I hope it stays that way. I think I am going to glue a glass of water to my hand for the rest of this pregnancy so that I am constantly drinking. Good plan right?
I hope everyone had a way better week than I did and I am happy to say that I will be back to my regularly scheduled blogging.
Have a great Friday!
