Ow ow ow.

I'm a big old sissy, I decided.

My body hurts. Seriously. I feel like I over did it at the gym or something. My lower back is sore, the area in front of my hips just aches, and my right leg from my hip to my knee is throbbing. It's not too bad if I sit still, but as soon as I stand up or try to walk anywhere, it's like I'm a million years old.

Now toss in some contractions on top of all that.

Last night, it was so bad, I couldn't even stand up straight to go to the bathroom! I had to bend at the waist and kinda do this old lady shuffle across the apartment. It was so absolutely ridiculous that I was cracking up the whole way, and my poor husband didn't know whether to laugh or feel bad for me. There may have also been some shouts of OW and DAMMIT on the way...

I'm wondering how much of my pain is my own stupid fault though for being so tensed up while the doctor was trying to strip my membranes. I know that if you tense up for a shot you end up sore the rest of the day, and this was WAY bigger than a shot. I definitely hurt less today than I did last night, thank the Lord for that! I don't know that I could have dealt with several days of that.

Part of me feels like an incredible sissy, carrying on the way I have. Part of me is like, SUCK IT UP WOMAN, sheesh, but it HURTS!!!

I'm no expert by far but it almost sounds like you're having back labor (I had it). Sounds like you're ready to go! Sending you {{good vibes}} GOOD LUCK!!
