Before I was pregnant, I swore if and when I ever were, I would never complain about anything because I just wanted to be a mother so badly!
All I have to say to that is HA!
I hope I don't offend anyone with this post, because I know there are those of you who are still waiting on your miracle. And I truly, 100% believe it WILL happen for you.
However...I advise you now to never make the same statement I did.
Here's my complaint.
My back hurts SO BAD!
I have to add here that I like to think of this as a "vent" and not a complaint. Because I feel like complaints are things you make when you would like to trade the situation you are in for something different. That isn't the case in the least. I wouldn't trade these twins for anything in the world.
I've had several complications in this pregnancy already, and none I outright complained about (except maybe to McHotterson or my mother).
But my back is killing me, y'all.
And I don't know what to do about it. I've even missed a day of work because of it.
It's lower back pain and it's only when I sit at work for a long period of time; or when I sit in the car on a long trip and occasionally if I lay the wrong way in bed.
I bought a Snoogle, which is DIVINE, but it obviously doesn't really help when I'm sitting in a chair.
I have a chair in my classroom...a lounger...and it is heaven. I've gone from just using it during my conference periods, to now even using it during class. The kids haven't even really taken notice of it, or at least they haven't said much about it. They get it.
Any advice would be very much welcomed! Oh, and it can't include Ben Gay or Icy Hot or anything like that because I've already tried that once and it made my back break out in a rash. Ew.....
I'll leave you with some pictures of me in my classroom, lights off, lamps on, music going, reclined during my conference.
