And unfortunately, it hurt again this morning. So, I cut short my precious 4 hours in the office to come home and revisit the heating pad therapy. Tomorrow, I may have to actually take the heating pad with me. Good thing I have an office! My boss did suggest I could wear a Thermacare bandage, so that's an idea for Wednesday and Thursday when I'll be leading training, and would look rather conspicuous with a white cord trailing out of my back side....plus, I'm not sure where my extension cord is right now...
Today is Monday. I will be 27 weeks on Thursday. I hope this is not a preview of how I'll spend my 3rd trimester. I hope its a passing thing. The little pollyanna in me remembers having back pain weeks ago, and that it went away after about a week. The cynical little realist slaps pollyanna backhanded and screams Don't you realize that you're almost 7 months pregnant with twins for pete's sake, of course this is a preview!
*One thing I always took for granted when using a heating pad for cramps or other things in the past - the ability to lie on your back! Do you know how hard it is to wedge yourself against something to create enough pressure to keep the heating pad flush against your skin (even when tucked into your shirt) and yet still be comfortable.
BUT I'M NOT COMPLAINING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Really, truly, I'm not. I still feel like this has been an exceptionally pleasant pregnancy. I'm uncomfortable, but its not intolerable. And I am once again reminded just how darn lucky I am that I have a job where I can work from home.
In emotional news, last night's episode of Deperate Housewives made me cry. Yes, a sad, sappy story of some handyman. I am totally blaming the hormones for that one!
I have my one-hour gestational diabetes test tomorrow at OB's office. I hope I don't puke, pass out, or anything else embarrassing!!
