I hate being pregnant most days but today is the worst.

Without swelling, I'm sure I would've done the same - PG or not! And the thing is - you DID catch it. And I think your kids probably would agree that less attention for a while will be worth having a new little sibling. I had to give up figure skating among other
things when lil bro was on the way, but we had so much fun with him! Don't let yourself carry the weight of the world on your shoulders.

Get well soon to you both! Maybe you can find some mother-daughter movies to share. Mom and I liked Freaky Friday. ;-)

Don't beat yourself up over it! Like JM said, you DID catch it. I had a similar situation as a kid. I broke my wrist roller skating & my parents waited about a week to get it x-rayed. It wasn't that swollen, or bruised or anything, it just had a nagging, weird pain I knew was different than sprains I had had, but couldn't articulate how, very well to them.

They weren't pregnant, distracted, busy, etc. they just made a judgment call based on what they saw that turned out to be incorrect. No harm done though, in my case, and I'm sure no harm done in your daughter's either. Cut yourself some slack mama, you're doing the best you can and might have made this call the same way, pregnant or not.

That's crazy. I hear ya about getting out of the house. I'm still at the point of saving up energy to fold and iron clothes. DH and I both need this much talked about 2T energy burst!

Y'all are still in my T&P. *Hugs*
