We made it to full term! Woooop! And my body is falling apart….booooooo.
On the weekend we went to Brisbane for a wedding and stayed in a nice fancy hotel with the most comfortable bed and pillows. It was all so perfect. And then I went to adjust my heavy body and heard the most massive pop right between my breast. Scared the freaking life out of me. I have had a google and it is like to be air or ligaments surrounding the sternum and the connection to the ribs.
It is now a day later and it still hurts. It is not too bad if I’m upright but if I try to lean over the weight of my massive boobs pulls on it and it hurts, which means getting comfy in bed hurts as you have to sleep on the side and boobies want to move. *sigh*
When it happened yesterday I got so upset more because I was worried I might go into labour and then actually have other physical pain to deal with throughout it. I felt like my natural birth was being snatched from me right as it was within my grasp.
Then of course I woke this morning and my left upper arm is aching. I think I slept on it funny in an effort to stop the chest bone thing from hurting. Oh the irony.
So hopefully all this rubbish heals over the next few days so I can get back to being in optimum birthing condition! Seriously….gggrrrrrrrrr.
Here is a pic from yesterday morning at the hotel. We had some taken at the wedding and I look awful in all of them. Even Eric and his mum agree it is a weird angle and they just do not look like me at all. I was really really upset about it and ended up in tears as I was in this lovely dress and I may never be this pregnant dressed up like that ever again. Oh the meltdowns of a heavily pregnant woman. Anyway, we are going to do a faux dress up again soon and try for some shots. Fingers crossed it works out.
