For about two hours last night I was sure it was go time. I was having regular waves of crampy back pain for about two hours. I was probably having about 7-10 an hour and they were increasingly difficult to manage. It was a really bad day to go into labor. I was at my parents’ house with Isa and my grandmother while Mi.Vida was at an event in the city, without the car. It would have been really tough to manage it all. Plus I was not at all ready to be away from school this week. And yet… I was really excited to meet my son.
But it wasn’t go time. The crampy back pain subsided and never came back. I’m at work today, with almost debilitating sciatica pain but no signs of labor. I’m incredibly uncomfortable; I can barely walk around my classroom let along across the way to the office bathrooms. I honestly don’t know how I’m going to make it to the end of the day, let alone the end of the week. Or god forbid the next week.
I’m sorry to be whiny again, I’m just having a hard time right now. I know this will eventually pass and all this pain and discomfort will subside (not before a lot MORE pain and discomfort, but you get the point). I know that technically the end is in sight, but when I don’t know where to look for it, it doesn’t feel that way at all.
And good god my hips and back hurt like a mother f*cker. How many more days of this?!
