So the night of my last post, I noticed my ankles were swollen. Really swollen at only 20 weeks pregnant. Yesterday? Yup, swollen again, so I called my OB because the swelling was accompanied by a severe headache. Anyone who's been pregnant before know this could be a sign of preeclampsia. So the doc, just as I knew he would wanted to see me and check my BP and everything else today. I arranged for one of the awesomest friends around to come and sit with my kiddos while they napped (and she's extra awesome because she's also pregnant and in the throws of morning sickness - a reason I felt bad even having to ask her!).
I get to the doc and the second he walks in, I tell him that I've seen him entirely too much in the last couple of weeks. He frowns and says, "Well, I like seeing you!" He was, of course, just playing back with me. But I was thinking, "yeah, because I'm paying your rent." The turkey. My BP was good, swelling is down significantly today, but oh, what was that? A bladder infection? No, he says, wait.
A kidney stone.
Yeah, you've got blood and this such and such in your urine which means a kidney stone.
I haven't had a kidney stone in almost 13 months. I guess it's about time for one. Especially since I've been pregnant and not had one. They usually increase when I'm "with child." But you know, we are leaving for vacation Sunday. There's no reason why I should be able to ENJOY my vacation. Of course, we're going to be in the middle of my much coveted shopping day and it's gonna hit me. Either that or I'm going to get stuck kicking and screaming and writhing in pain the entire time because a kidney stone is stuck in my bladder and refuses to come out, therefore causing bladder spasms.
Yeah, I think I'm going to just puke from excitement over this kidney stone. It's just what I needed.
Forget the vacation, just bring on the kidney stone!!!
