Debilitating chest/ back pain. It felt like I was having a heart attack. It was worse when laying down. And only on my right side. Breathing hurt. Moving hurt. It was terrible. After suffering with this every evening for 4 days I went back to the urgent care. They did an EKG to test to see if it was my heart. It wasn't. They did an x ray (baby was protected) to see if my pneumonia was still there. It wasn't. They did blood tests but o never got any sort of results back. The doctor told me he suspected a blood clot but they didn't have the equipment to test and wanted me to go to the ER for a CAT scan. Like are you kidding me? CAT scans have 100 times more radiation than x rays. I left the urgent care and consulted with my OB. She and I agree that the it doesn't actually sound like I have a blood clot. If they seriously suspected that they wouldn't have discharged me. They would have transferred me by ambulance to the ER. She told me it sounds like my gallbladder and gave me a few tips to help treat it. I did some homework and the more I find the more I agree with her that it's my gallbladder. So I have some testing to do, changes in my diet to make and we will see what happens.
This has been so difficult for me so far. Physically. And even emotionally. I think I'm more scared in this rainbow pregnancy than I was for the others. I'm not sure why. Although pregnancy is miserable for me, especially this time around, it's totally worth it and I do know how blessed I am. I pray that this little baby make it safe and sound in November.
But this pregnancy has opened my eyes that in older now and my body responds differently than it had in the past. It's much harder. And I have 3 kids now to run after and deal with pregnancy. It's exhausting. As each week passes by I think I'm beginning to realize that more than likely this will be our last baby. It's a hard pill to swallow but I just can't keep going through this. We shall see though. A lot can change in the next few months and years.
