Well, we've made it to 33wks3days[:D] Had ob appt yesterday and nst. She is not very active anymore, they put that little buzzer to my tummy like 10 times and can't get her to move around except for maybe once, well eventually twice because they don't let me go until she has two movements with heartrate excelleration of at least 15 beats.

They ran the regular PIH labs yesterday after a week of nausea and back pain. We had dropped my atenolol dose by 75% last thursday and that only made me feel worse. My bp is back to being low again at 100/65 after moving around and sitting back down. I'm wondering if they just stop the atenolol all together, this low bp is just really dificult to deal with because it makes me feel so sick. My labs all came back normal. My previous back surgeries are just causing so much pain and my ob won't treat pain hence I think I'm getting nauseated and exhausted from dealing with all the pain. I had asked the nurse this morning if I would be able to take muscle relaxers at least, she snottily replied that my ob was out today and in a tone that pretty much stated "why would we even think of giving you those?" You can't be in that much pain can you? uh, missing bone structures and tendons in my lower back and I have a baby sitting on exposed nerves and causing severe muscle contrax and I have to cry myself to sleep or not sleep at all these days. stupid nurse. I am so sick of the way I get treated. Why is it so hard to have compassion??? my old ob didn't treat my outright medical issues but at least her nurse was so incredibly compassionate and kind if I called in and understood I was in a lot of pain...and this was months ago before was so big and cutting into everything. I'm sorry I just have to complain and no where else to do it.

We are moving on Saturday to the new house![:D] I can't wait to be out of here, our apartment is just in shambles and I can't do anything about it. So much shopping to do for the new house and I can't walk around anywhere and so few stores have wheelchairs for me to sit in so we can shop. Well, I'll chat with you all later. Thanks for listening[:)]
