Hi! I’m a Cripple!
Leaving the OB’s office this morning, I somehow tweaked my lower back while climbing into the car. (1 cm dilated, 50% effaced!)
I then proceeded to go grocery shopping. Because I’m smart.
When the Very Helpful Grocery Bagger asked me eleventy billion times if I would like assistance to my car, I declined over and over again. Because I’m smart.
As you can guess, I aggravated my back somethin’ FIERCE while loading my car with said groceries. My back is not happy and I pretty much can’t move.
Since mainlining painkillers (or even Ibuprofen) isn’t in the cards for me, any sage advice for lower back pain relief?
Oh and guess what? I’m 9 months pregnant!
(Taken this past weekend or as I like to call it, the Pre-Crippled Days. Oh, to stand without wincing….)
