I knew the second I was pregnant it wasn’t going to be easy. I’m learning my lesson as I carry twins and that I really had no idea what I was getting myself in for this go round.
This past week we had another ultrasound. Both boys are growing on target and measuring about the same which is great since we have to watch for twin to twin transfusion syndrome. Baby A is vertex so his head is already down (and actually pretty low, he’s in the race to be first born for sure) and his body goes along the right of my body. Baby B is lying sideways (transverse) directly along my ribs (and a nurse tried arguing with me that it wasn’t possible, HA). Well, knowing Baby B is laying under my ribs definitely explains the back pain and something I definitely did not expect. The other day as I was attempting to prepare dinner, I bent over and not only did I feel muscles pull/move, I HEARD IT. There’s no way to describe that feeling but since then, moving around isn’t too easy.
I had hubby push along the top of the baby bump to show how much pressure was pressing against my chest and sure enough, he was pretty sure he felt a rib move. This comes as now surprise though as my ribs were slipping out before pregnancy, resulting in lots of chiro. visits. At this point, it seems like I’d be a bit too optimistic to think going to chiro. will help, especially if baby stays tucked under my ribs.
I have been struggling with my prenatal care as the office that I am at doesn’t schedule you consistently with the same provider. Just as I was getting used to a doctor that I liked, boom, we switched me to a different person again that I did not care for. Sorry, scheduling me for physical therapy an hour and a half away from where I live and saying you can prescribe meds. I ALREADY have just doesn’t show very much concern. I brought up my headaches and that was his response. I told him physical therapy at the location he picked wasn’t possible but, he knew the guy so that’s where he wanted me to go. Lovely huh? And I get to see this lovely doctor again this upcoming week.
Not much I can say at this point, I’m in pain. I guess be happy this is that last pregnancy? LOL.
