Pain in my rear

Okay. The pain in my lower back has reached epic proportions. I really, genuinely, tried not to complain about it on here.. but it has just gotten too difficult. This back pain arrived oh, about 2 months? ago... and well, me, being pregnant for the first time, just assumed that it had something to do with me growing a living person in my tummy. Not the case. I've started to question my ability to go to work. (while I'm laying wide awake at 2:00 am, 4:00 am, 5:00 am every morning) I can't describe how thankful I am that my hubby-t0-be still wants to marry me after watching me stuff an "ice sock" down my pants to numb the pain, or hearing me scream while trying to feed the cat or put on my shoes. (atleast, I'm pretty sure he still wants to marry me.....) Or, how about the fact that my MOM out-walked me the other day, wanting to do "another lap" that looked to me like climbling over Mount Everest.
If this pain in my rear continues for the next 6 months, you may not want to read my blog for a while. UNLESS, you are looking for non-stop moaning and groaning from a highly uncomfortable pregnant chick. In that case, my blog might become your new best friend.
So, in other words, please pray that my visit to the Chiropractor relieves some (or hopefully ALL) of this spinal torture.

I highly recommend getting a massage on your lunch break. Plus, the chiropractor did this poppy thingy to my neck which made my entire head feel like Jell-O. OH! And, he gave Scott and I this electronic pulse machine-a-ma-bobber that we get to take home and shock eachother with! (well.. he said NOT to do that... but we'll see...) Also, it turns out that I wasn't just exaggerating! (like usual) Something IS wrong with my rear! Hooray for Chiropractors!!


  1. Girl, cheerleading and gymnastics left me with a bulging disc...I am soooooooo not looking forward to ever being pregnant with that to deal with! Crossing my fingers for help from the chiro!

  2. So you literally have a pain in the ass. Lovely. Miss you.
