So...I'm feeling a little better. I did call my Doctor yesterday. The pain on the side of my belly button was almost totally gone by then and he said that I could come in if I wanted to , but he agreed with the Doctor on call and thought that it also had to do with the round ligaments. Of course by the end of the day yesterday, I was exhausted and having shooting pains on the sides. These I know are round ligament pain, but boy do they hurt.
I have some pretty major lower back issues. My left lower back is always in pain, even when I'm not pregnant. I have a ton of morning where I cant even stand up straight. I've gone to chiropractors, but as soon as you stop going on a regular basis, it stops working. I know that this is from my gardening and it's just gotten worse over the years. Now, I'm pretty sure that it's contributing to the issues in the front. I noticed today that when I bend over, which hurts so much, I actually try to avoid it, I am clenching my abdomen! Then this causes pain around my uterus. Ugh. I have a massage in the morning with my FAVORITE massage therapist, K. She's amazing, and I'm sure she'll be able to help me out. I just know she will. I actually spoke with my primary care, but she advised against try a chiropractor unless I find one that is comfortable treating a high risk pregnant lady.
***I want to say that I'm not complaining, well, not really. I will happily take whatever I get dished out, for Jackson to get here healthy, but every little pain makes me worry and freak out, so things often are worse emotionally.*
I can't wait to see K and have her work her magic!
