Today I woke up to a really sore stomach. It sort of felt like a constant cramp. Almost like a contraction but it was a constant thing, rather than on then off again.
It started off mild- I wasn’t able to carry Scarlett because of the pain but I could walk standing straight.
Then throughout the day it has gotten worse. It is so bad that the pain is radiating down my legs. It is hard to take a deep breath because it hurts. Every time Reece moves it feels like a knife is stabbing me.
I don’t know what is wrong.
I called birth unit and they suggested panadol and lying down with a heat pack. I tried that and it didn’t work.
I waited another 6 hours before I called birth unit again. Nothing is working and I’m in tears. I can’t walk straight and the pain is excruciating.
When I called them the second time they suggested buscopan, which can apparently help to relieve muscle spasms or cramps. It hasn’t done a thing and I took it over an hour and a half ago.
I don’t know what to do. The pain goes away when I sit down, unless I move or Reece moves. I still feel the radiating pain in my legs regardless.
It’s not contractions as the pain doesn’t get better. The birth unit suspect it’s ligament pain but surely ligament pain can’t cause this amount of pain. I don’t know what to do. It hurts so bad. I’ve already called them twice and I don’t know if they are taking it seriously.
I don’t know whether to just go get checked or not. It’s nearly 8pm here and Scarlett will be due for bed soon. Which means my mum would have to stay home with Scarlett and I would have to go in alone.
But this pain. I won’t be able to put up with this for another 2 weeks. I just can’t.
