I hate to be whiney, but I needed to vent somewhere. yesterday we had a repairman over to the house and when he arrived I bent down and picked up my dog to get her out of the way. Later in the day, I noticed a sharp stabbing pain right beneath my breast bone / at the top of my fundus. I thought at first it was either the baby kicked me hard (as I have received a lot of kicks to my ribs lately) or gas (because, well my stomach is the size of an acorn these days). But after laying down for like 2 hours the pain was still there - only when I move, especially when I bend over of reach across my body. I called my dr today and she things its probably a strained (and hopefully not torn) ab muscle.
Now I have had some bad muscle strains already in this pregnancy, but they were due to my bout of bronchitis and coughing, and they were when I was much smaller (back in January). I am really worried that this won't heal before I go into labor (I'm 37 weeks and 3 days). My plan is to be unmedicated for labor, but if this is still super sore it may compound contraction pain to a point where I can't handle things. Hence my whining - it seems silly to be so worried / annoyed by this, but I am.
