Tuesday: had massages and registered for Baby Garrett at Target and Babies R Us
Wednesday: rested at home while Jason went to work...on his day off :(
Thursday: rested at home and had lunch with Jason :)
Friday: drove to Selmer, TN with Jason to check on a pool job that he designed, went to Shiloh military park and had lunch by the river - very beautiful, then drove to Starkville to spend the night to go to the basketball game Saturday morning.
Friday night: ate at one of our favorite Starkville restaurants - Harvey's
Late Friday night - Early Saturday morning: woke up with TERRIBLE pains in my back - started throwing up because of the pain - went to the emergency room in Starkville - found out I was experiencing my very first kidney stone while being pregnant....NOT FUN!!!!!
So needless to say, Jason and did not get to go to the game in Starkville. (I hope the nurse's husband enjoyed those tickets we gave her.) The only place we went from the hospital was back on 45 headed home, then to Walgreen's to fill the pain pill prescription, and to the bed where I spent the next 2 days. My sweet Moma, who came in town to help take care of me, and Jason did everything they could to try to make me comfortable, but nothing worked. The pain meds they gave me in the emergency room only last 2 hours and then I was in excruciating pain again. I don't think any of us got any sleep. Monday I decided to call my OB doctor and see what she could do for me. I went in, they did an ultrasound of my kidney and also comfirmed that it was a kidney stone which she said was common in pregnancy and said I had two options: 1.Go home with stronger pain medication, which she assured me was fine for the baby and drink LOTS of fluids to try to get the stone to pass, or 2.be admitted into the hospital and have an IV pump me full of fluids to get the stone to pass. I chose option 1. I figured I might be more comfortable at home. We went home, got the new prescription filled, and I slept like a baby the next four hours. (so did my Moma and Jason) :) When I woke up the meds were starting to wear off so I took another dose and about an hour later...I passed it!!!!!! I literally felt like I had given birth to my first child. :) I wanted to keep it and show everyone. I will spare my blog readers and not post any pictures. :) I told my Moma and Jason that I know that I am ready for labor now. I mean...I might even have Garrett naturally. :)(haha) I have been sore the past two days which the doctor said was normal and I will be glad to be returning back to work tomorrow. I really hope this is the only major event I will have in the next 4-5 months before Garrett makes his arrival.
