After the KIDNEY STONE that is killing me right now! Yesterday I started feeling lousy, but was trying not to be a "baby" about it, but after a full night of pain in my side and back, I decided to go to the doctor this morning. I completely thought that they'd tell me "nothing's wrong, go home and rest." I went anyway, though out of concern that something might be wrong with the pregnancy. The bad news is that it appears (after having a quick ultrasound) that I've gotten my very first (and hopefully LAST) kidney stone. The good news is that I got some pain meds that are helping me BREATHE again AND I got to see a little ultrasound picture of my sweet baby a little early. He/She was waving at me as if to say, "Sorry, mom, I know you feel like crap, but I'm OKAY in here!" I was VERY relieved once again to hear a strong heartbeat and see a little head and arm movement on the ultrasound. That made me relax again. Anyway, I'm hoping this stone will do whatever it needs to do to GET OUT! I've got enough going on in this 32 yr old body..... As for the baby, we'll go for another regularly planned ultrasound in about 5 weeks to find out if it is a girl or boy... can't wait for that one!
