So, since Friday night I had a pinching/pain in my neck that went through my shoulder and down my right arm. It's not fun! Yesterday morning when I shifted in bed, I felt a sharp stab and tons of pain. I had to call DH home from work because I couldn't even roll out of bed. I went to the ER and it's a pulled muscle. Let me tell you, not fun! It's a reminder how pregnancy hormones can make us so fragile! I did nothing to cause it to start Friday (nothing that I can think of to cause injury). An awesome thing is that the did an ultrasound (I couldn't turn to see though and DH chose not to look since I couldn't see). All he could say was that he saw the heartbeat and it looks perfect and the baby was moving around a lot (he's not an obgyn so he can't tell anything else).
So, I have been in bed for about 2 days. I really don't know how women on bed rest do it! It sucks!
Wow! I'm sorry about the pain you are in.. Is there anything you can do? Hot/cold compresses or meds? I hope it heals fast for you!
Thanks hun!.....DH is being really good to me which is helping......I can do cold or hot compress (since it wont do anything to overall body temp being on my neck/shoulder. All I can take for pain is Tylenol which I don't because it doesn't help much, so it's pointless to even take it. I am not a big med person even when I am not pregnant, so I take pretty much nothing while I am pregnant. They wanted to give me other stuff but then found out it wasn't safe, so they said Tylenol is the only thing I can have.
Aww i'm glad your DH is taking care of you. That must be a HUGE relief!
I'm with you on the Tylenol though. I think that stuff is completely bogus. It never works for me either.
Hang in there! Maybe watch a few of your favorite movies paired with a few foods you are craving. That oughta make time go by a little faster.
Saturday while DH was working my mom took DS and I watched movies, took a bubble bath and ate some yummy food....It was great and helped, until I moved wrong Sunday and made it a million times worse than it was to begin with.
Oh, wow! I had the same thing happen last week! I cried when they told me all I could do was use Tylenol and a heating pad!! It took a week but it's finally all better now. I had to go to work after the first couple of days and it was torture. I hope you are able to rest and just have time to recover!!
