At my appointment on Friday, 17 weeks, I had only gained 10 pounds! Yeah!! This is approximate because I didn't really know what I was weighing when I got pregnant, since I don't really know when that was. I haven't gained more than 10 pounds, but it may only be 8 pounds. With both Bekah and Sarah, I had gained at least 13-14 pounds at this point.
I am in a lot of pain. About 4 months ago, I started having some pain in my right hip/inner thigh. It is horrible and causes me to limp a bit when it is hurting. Last week, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, was the worst. I felt like I was in labor in my leg. The pain was numbing. My OB gave me a perscription for a narcotic that I haven't filled yet cause I can only take it when I'm in extreme pain. If I take too much, the baby will come out addicted. The pain has been bad today. I think it has been worse this last week because the baby is growing. The doctor says that the baby is still really low in my pelvis, this is why I can still wear a lot of my pants, and the baby is probably causing my hips to spread earlier, therefore making the pain worse. I am really worried that I am going to have to deal with this the whole pregnancy. I cannot do anything when it's hurting, and it is even hard to find a good position to sleep in. I am going to the doctor tomorrow to get a referral for physical therapy or an orthopedist. I can't have anything officially diagnoised cause I can't have an x-ray, but maybe they can help ease the pain and strengthen my hip until the baby comes in May.
