I managed to survive 34 pregnant weeks without heartburn wielding its ugly fist. But then it hit – hard. It was time to run out to the store for some Tums.
I managed to survive the majority of 34 pregnant weeks without needing to pop pills for the pain. Then the pain struck even harder than I expected. It’s now almost impossible to sleep at night because my hips and back are so sore. I had to invest in a bigger bottle of Tylenol and some Tylenol PM.
After trying to suffer through without taking any Tylenol last night (and, therefore, not getting much sleep to speak of), I’ve decided that the Tylenol and Tums are parked on my counter and that’s where they’re going to stay until I pop out this baby. Instead of trying to be stoic and struggle through the pain that makes it nearly impossible to walk, I’m going to throw my hands in the air and allow myself to be as comfortable as possible. If my doctor says it’s safe to take some medication, then by golly I’m going to do it. And I will do it happily!
