So, this pregnancy has not been the easiest for me and Tuesday night another fun thing popped up! I now either have a pinched nerve of some sort on the left side of my lower back or some mystery symptom that is making my life even more fun! As if the shortness of breath, heartburn, exhaustion and inability to eat more than a few bites wasn't enough right now, I have this random shooting pain (I get it whether sitting or standing and have no warning when it is about to happen) that radiates from my lower back and goes down my leg and up my back. It is sometimes debilitating...and I have a 2 year old to run after!
Yesterday, I took Nolan to a gym and he kept jumping in the foam block pits they had...just a week ago when we went I was able to bend over and get him out if he was stuck, or even get into the pit a little and get him out. Not yesterday! Luckily, a few moms and a dad who were there stepped in to help him a few times but I still have two months of this pregnancy left! I am so upset about this new development because it is going to limit what I can and cannot do with my son! I want to enjoy these last few weeks with him and though I listed all of those other issues, I was able to function and do pretty much whatever I wanted to with Nolan. Ugh. I have my next doctor's appointment next Friday, but may have to call them sooner to see what I can do. A few friends have mentioned a chiropractor and massage...so those may be options too...please pray this nerve just miraculously comes un-pinched or if it isn't that, please pray this mystery pain goes away on its' own VERY soon!!!
