Imagine being 6 months pregnant (and looking more like 8 0r 9 based on the amound of people asking how long I have left) and finding yourself in this position on your kitchen floor. And, no it wasn't on purpose. It started out simply enough, with me mopping the kitchen floor. I accidently, stepped back onto a wet patch, each leg went in a different position and I soon found myself on my side in a world of hurt.

My first thought of course was of the baby. I especially wondered about the possible placenta previa complication I may be facing. I half expected to find myself in a puddle of my own water or worse yet, blood. Thankfully, there has been nothing out of the ordinary the rest of the day in terms of the baby. Seems he is safe and sound, even if my right leg isn't.

Over the day I've taken two doses of tylenol for pain and have done 2 40 minute session of 5 minutes on 5 minutes off with a bag of frozen peas. My limited mobility has kept me from seeing a doctor but it feels like I have a possible pulled muscle in my groin or whatever muscle is in your upper thigh and twisted or pulled a muscle in my knee. I am in limiting pain on my right side from my hip to my knee.

Just what I needed, another thing to make moving and sleeping just a little bit more difficult. I hope you all are having a much better Tuesday!

It seems like a fall when you are pg hurts so much worse for some reason! I fell when I was pg with my second, and I hurt for weeks afterwards!

I hope your tylenol kicks in soon!

Ouch is right! I can't even imagine..Hope you start feeling better soon. I always hated that the strongest pain killer I can take when pregnant is Tylenol.

Oh goodness! I hope you feel better soon.

I'm glad the baby is ok and I hope you get feeling better soon! Take a hot bath!

My kids have tried to get me to go skating with them since I've been pregnant but NO WAY do I want to hurt myself!
