Late Stage Pregnancy Discomforts

Erik thought it was strange that I've been having trouble moving in general the last few weeks. He even thought I was exaggerating at the amount of discomfort and moments of pain when I would try to get out of bed, move position in bed or getting up from a sitting position on the couch. I did some research and found that what I was experiencing is called Pelvic Girdle Pain.

I quickly called my OB to see if she could get me in. I'm expecting a call in a few hours because they can give referrals to physical therapists. And also got an apology from Erik for dismissing my claims of pain in the groin area.

    I've never heard of it. I'm glad you called your OB. I had issues with my sciatica and I thought that was painful enough.

        I guess it's human nature for people to compare and Erik was comparing his ex's pregnancy with mine. Also irritating was when Erik told me that our room mate said I'm the loudest pregnant woman he's come across in terms of me struggling to get up off the couch or struggling in general from Point A to Point B. There's a woman who completed an 8 meter race around my stage of pregnancy. Kudos to her, but I also got compared to her. Me: When was the last time I ran? Exactly so no comparison. SMH.

        My nurse called and gave me an exercise to do and told me to buy a belly band, the kind of Velcro support that movers wear. And if still no improvement by next OB appt they'll give me the referral to physical therapist.
