i overdid it today for sure. Errand running, cleaning, lifting, squatting down to plant in the garden…
Then on the way to my birthday dinner with my dad I started having STRONG pain. I cannot exaggerate on the word STRONG. STRONG.
I tried to fake it but made it through ordering some water before I had to admit how bad it was. The waitress went to find me Tylenol and I called my OB through the exchange. He called me back in less than a minute and told me to go home and lie down with a big jug of water and my heating pad. He said if it wasn’t better in 90 minutes to two hours max to go to L&D. He was very calm, said he wasn’t worried, but that it’s always a good idea to be safe.
Chief practically had to carry me out of the restaurant and I just about cried all the way home.
30 minutes on a heating pad and a lot of water later and it’s much better. So now I’m just embarrassed. I freaked out my parents and my husband, bothered my doctor on a Sunday, and missed out on dinner with my dad.
Maybe it is possible that I can’t ACTUALLY do everything I did before I was pregnant. I’m frustrated with myself.
