Pregnancy Update

First with the profile picture of my big Buddha belly.....

Like I would really take a picture of my belly. I'm huge, this hippo is an understatement.

Today was one of the worst days, I didn't get out of bed at all. Normally I have a few hours to clean or make dinner or run errands, but not today. So I called the Doctor. It must be bad if I'm calling the Doc. They want me to go to physical therapy. Which is crazy weird to me. My imagination of that leaves me with unpleasant thoughts. Plus we found out the hard way that our insurance doesn't really cover physical therapy (busted foot, from fall down the stairs). I am still paying the medical bills from the last physical therapist.
So I did some reading and found this http://www.plus-size-pregnancy.org/pubicpain.htm
It is very accurate and describes a lot of the problems I had with Aiden's pregnancy. Also possibly could have prevented the C-section had I know. This article suggests chiropractic, which we are going to try first since it is much cheaper than physical therapy. It has a name, "Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction". It just means my pelvis is out of alignment. Anyway, I was glad to find this so I now don't just feel like a ninny. I like to put names to my ailments. Makes me feel less like a hypochondriac:). Plus everybody keeps asking me why I need to stay in bed and I don't have a good reason other than to say it hurts real bad to move. So 15 weeks to go and the counnt down is on. Oh and the Tivo is empty:(.

That is no fun. Are you still taking your class? Do you need help with it? Congrats on the name for your ailment though... :) What can we do?
