    Hi Kelli - thanks for thinking of me. Not doing great. The pain I had in my leg and back got really bad last week and I was hospitalised to try and get the pain under control and to give me some rest since I hadn't slept in a few weeks. I got an MRI to find out the real reason for the pain because they are pretty sure its not the baby putting pressure on me but my old back problems causing the pain. I won't the get the results until next week because its a long weekend here
    and I discharged myself after the scan. They have me on serious pain medication which I really hate taking but have no choice. My doctor has reassured me they are safe to take but you know your mind plays tricks on you. Anywho I'm home now so trying to rest up, can't even drive (can't put pressure on clutch, how I wish I had an automatic
    ) only 20 wks left to go.

    How you doing? How are your boys ?

  • so sorry to hear about that news!
    its not like being pg is hard enough-- and your body has to go and have back problems! ugh.... rest up and I hope the mri results can give the drs some better direction....

    we are great here! busy getting ready for halloween this week- the boys both have parties at school and trick or treating here in the neighborhood is a big deal
    so they are super excited about that!

    It's nice hitting that half way mark eh????

  • god I completely forgot about Halloween
    mind you thats probably the last year I'll ever do that again
    Yeah its been a rough few weeks but the pain meds are making me feel a lot better emotionally as well as physically, I was quite depressed with the non stop pain so I'm starting to feel better even though the pain will almost certainly remain. Hoping the physio I get will help. The good side of it is I got to see how the hospital works and how amazing the staff are and I'm in love with my OB he is so wonderful. I'm looking forward to the birth now I won't have any reservations at all.

    Post some pics of the boys on Halloween I love seeing them in their costumes

    Its so amazing to be halfway there, its gone so quickly actually want to bet the next 20 will drag by
