We have a plan. I have pain meds and muscle relaxers. I am going to seek chiropractic care and massage therapy and work on weaning me off the heavy duty stuff over the next couple of weeks so Cricket isn't a druggie. I get to keep the muscle relaxer as needed.
Overall, I am sooooooo much better. I am walking on my own, albeit VERY slowly, and only short distances. Is the pain gone? Nope. I don't, at this point, expect it to up and disappear. Much like Spike, we have to break it so it then becomes manageable on an as-needed basis.
I am terrified of the stairs at home right now, but we will sort it out. I am terrified I am going to be miserable the rest of my pregnancy. I am terrified that when I go back to work Tuesday (my Monday) I won't be able to sit in those chairs all day, and that moving around will not ease the pain.
I have to power through, and do what I can do make my back handle the changes Cricket is bringing to my body. I will let you know how it goes.
But for now, I am just so excited to go home to my husband.
