Every week now is a milestone to me. At this point, the chance of survival for premature births increases each week. Hooray.
Sleeping is back to being quite crappy. Usually, I’m up once an hour or so to go to the bathroom, which makes for a very bad night’s sleep. I’m always exhausted in the morning. Having my fuzzy alarm clock, Callie, waking me up every morning at 7 a.m. really doesn’t help, but I can’t help but laugh when I open my eyes and look right into hers, as I did this morning. I guess I should count my blessings that that’s the only reason I’m not sleeping well. Yes, it usually takes me a while to fall asleep, but usually once I fall asleep being uncomfortable doesn’t bother me.
I’ve noticed the last couple of days that when I’m walking, like around the grocery store for instance, I get a pain in my side, kind of like a cramp. Joe thinks it could be the ligaments. Any thoughts?
I’m still not feeling Lucy move around as much as I was several weeks ago, but I’m trying not to let it freak me out. I’ll talk to the doctor about it on Friday. Yes, I know she’s still small, but I wouldn’t think movement would decrease since she’s bigger than she was.
Ever since my transfer, I’ve had pain in my hips, especially my right hip, that makes it incredibly painful to move in bed and sometimes walk. This past week, I had a really difficult time walking. I’ve mentioned it to my doctor before, and she said it could be nerve damage from the PIO shots. I wonder if it will go away at some point. I’ve been dealing with it for six months now, and it’s miserable.
I’m still dreading my glucose test on Friday, though the advice I’ve received has helped a little. Let’s hope I pass!
