I have not had the best of weeks this week. My body decided it did not want to adjust to the hip and abdomen movement to accommodate the baby, and I was in incredible pain for a few days. I had a massage and managed to isolate the root of the pain to the sciatic nerve and abdomen. STretching and the massage worked wonders--except in the abdominal area. I tried Tylenol--didn't touch it. I called the OB nurse in massive pain. I tried a warm compress. Nothing. I called back. She said I would have to go to the emergency room. I ended up on Tylenol with codeine. So much for a drug-free as possible pregnancy. I am really concerned about the baby--please pray that there will be no effects! Tomorrow, I'm going to try to use the heating pad, take lukewarm baths in the AM and PM, and get by with regular Tylenol.
