I haven't posted anything in a week. It has been driving me crazy because I have so much to post about... My fun weekend with one of my good friends from California, Our other good friends from Idaho just had their baby, and other randomness... but all of that has had to be put on hold...
I have had the worst back pain EVER on just my right side behind my ribs for a few days. Then I started cramping up front... I didn't worry too much about it because I thought it was my belly just getting more large and in charge. Then yesterday morning I woke up at 3:30 am throwing up and I had the worst headache ever, I was light headed and my back pain was through the roof. I finally got back to bed and fell asleep for a little bit. I still was super nauseous that morning and breakfast didn't stay down for long either... I wondered if I was revisiting the nasty morning sickness phase or if I had caught a yucky flu bug. I decided to call my doctor just to make sure. My doctor decided to have me come in just to check it all out. After all the usual doctor stuff: weigh in, pee in a cup, blood pressure, the doctor came in. And PHEW Hayden's heartbeat is strong, but Dr. S informs me he thinks I'm passing a kidney stone and it’s a big one! Oh Joy! He also said many women get kidney stones around this time of their pregnancy, oh BIGGER joy! I left with some nausea medicine and some Percocet for the outrageous back pain. I felt so bad taking stuff to help me because I worry what it will do to Hayden. But it is one of the worst pains EVER! And I am so so nauseous. The medicines helped a ton and I was able to relax and get some sleep. I go back into the Doctor today at 1:30 for an ultrasound on my kidneys, and then I go back to the doctor Friday to discuss the results with my doctor. If it’s not a huge fatty kidney stone is a really bad kidney infection. If I don't start keeping at least water down I will probably get to be admitted til I can be rehydrated and the stone passes. I REALLY don't want to be admitted! Kidney stones or infection either way it hurts and I feel terrible. OH and apparently labor and delivery will be a breeze after this... who knows? So after all this settles down, hopefully sooner than later... I will be able to blog about my fabulous weekend and our friends baby Olivia!
Everyone have a Happy Halloween! I can't believe it's here already!!!
(and don't worry if I do give birth a kidney stone I won't name it and post a bunch of pictures of it, that would be yucky)
