Symptoms- Oh my aching back...for real. This week has brought on some really fun SI joint pain. Basically, my back hurts really far down in my bottom, and it constantly feels like my left leg is being dislocated from my body. It gets worse if I am on my feet all day or climbing up and down the stairs constantly. Luckily, now that I am on break, I can relax a bit more and stay off my feet. At my doctor appointment she told me my only options for relief are a belly brace, Tylenol, staying off my feet, and occasional heat from a heating pad. Between my husband and I, we are both feeling pretty pathetic. We both can't move well and it is pretty comical watching us migrate from our living room to our bedroom each day. We are a pretty pair of hobbling humans for sure. At his physical therapy appointments, his PT gave me some good stretches and exercises that have been helping too.
Baby Stuff- Well, everything is washed and ready to go! All of baby's adorable little goodies are folded and ready to be worn! It was so fun going through the laundry and seeing all of his little outfits! We still have a few things to finish in the nursery, but we are almost there!
Best Moment This Week- We picked a name! I am still keeping it a secret from the internet world, but we have told a few family members and friends. It is fun calling him by his name now!
