Poppin’ and Lockin’

I had two straight nights of pop free sleep but it was a short-lived success. The popping has come back with a vengeance for the last two nights and it’s worse than ever. Since there isn’t a single position that I can sleep in without feeling pain in one place or another, night time is the worst part of my day.

Unfortunately, the morning isn’t that much better. It takes a few minutes for me to rotate my legs out of the bed and get myself into a seated position. If I move too fast I’ll put weight on my pelvis before I’ve had a chance to get it properly aligned and that means a whole world of pain. When I finally do get out of bed, it takes a while for me to get my land legs back and get used to changing weight from one leg to the other.

On top of all that, walking has been especially painful today. Usually walking is only painful if I accidentally take a step that is too big or if I step onto or off the sidewalk the wrong way. But today every single step hurt and that’s a first.

My midwife said it’s time to send us to an OB to see if there’s anything that can be done to prevent this from getting too much worse in the next three months. So now we just have to wait to find out where we’re getting sent.
