C and M depart

Well, C and M are probably airborne by now. They had to leave waaayyyy early to get back home today. As you can see by the pictures, M is nearly a grown up. We had a lot of fun compressed into a short period of time. Hopefully it won't be 9 years between visits again! I know I dragged them all over town and even made them walk (once!) with me, but when you are limited on time, you do what you have to!

Other than that, my back is still giving me issues. Only one side though. I wonder if it was how I have been sleeping; I was trying a fancy preggers pillow. Oh well. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow so if nothing else, he can tell me what I am allowed to take for it. It's truly no fun! If anyone has any suggestions, the pain feels like a pulled muscle but only on one side. I swam this morning and almost cried when I tried to do a frog kick! I did manage to get my mile in; it was mainly crawl though.

Oh well, this is the price we pay!

I threw my back while I was pregnant and my mom gave me some good exercises to do to help it feel better. I also had to rest it/ice it for several days. Be very careful with your back because you'll need it soon. http://alphagal.blogspot.com/2006/08/dreams-of-roller-derby-queendom-are.html

I will check out the exercises, thanks! Its good to know I am not the only one who might be pushing just a wee bit much during pregnancy. I just want to keep moving, you know? ;-)

Almost everyone I know who has had a baby hurt their back at some point in the 3rd trimester. It's like a rite of passage or something.

Funny! Thanks for the link. I got some more Icy Hot patches and have been taking it easy (for me, anyway!) for the last day or so. Talked to my Doc today (normal appointment) and he told me I can take Tylenol if I need to. That plus the stretches should make everything better!
