I'm not missing, I was just in the hospital...

Hey ladies!

I'm so happy to be back. Back home. Back to my blog. Back to my regularly scheduled days.

Things have been beyond crazy, to say the least. Wednesday, June 8, I had a pretty hectic day of running errands and thought that I had just pushed too hard for the day. I skipped my workout class and church and cooking dinner. I decided that after a morning of running around, I was done for the day. I didn't feel well and being pregnant, I didn't feel like I needed to explain my decision.

My sweet, sweet hubby offered to bring me dinner but since I wasn't feeling well, I told him I was fine. By the time he walked in the door I was in so much pain I was literally in a ball on the couch crying my eyes out. It hurt to move or even breath.

Since the pain was in my lower back, I automatically panicked thinking it was labor pains and that it was way too early for this. So, we called my OB who told me to go to the ER, who sent me to Antepartum.

I was terrified that we were going to lose Lainey. They monitored for contractions and since I only had one tiny one, they were sure it wasn't labor. I was convinced it was a kidney stone and had to tell the nurse that I was positive it wasn't a UTI.

So, after deciding that sweet Lainey was fine, they gave me pain meds and sent me to ultrasound to get a better peek at my kidney. Sure enough, there it was. A 6.5mm kidney stone. Ugh. So, after lots of pain meds, five bags of fluids, fingers swollen so huge I cut my finger taking off my wedding ring, days in the hospital, I passed the stone and was put on temporary bed rest.

Oh the drama that fills my life!

After about a few days, I started to feel so much better. My first few days home I just slept. I am happy to report that other than the occasional, minute pain in my kidney, I am better.

Just before I got my stone, I had lots of fun stuff to update you all on. We got the nursery started, bought a few things for the baby, had vacation bible school, and had a few fun bday parties! I will update you all on those in the next few days. For now, I'm just happy to be up and moving around!

Happy Monday, friends!

I'm so glad you're feeling better!

...and that I'm not the only one suffering from kidney stones during pregnancy. They suck so much! Hoping you don't continue to suffer from them. :)
