The Triplets Story Part 2: Unexplained Pains

January 25th, while at church, the abdominal pains started. The pains seemed like a cross between menstrual cramps and a strong stitch in your side from running right after eating. They were mostly in the area of my left ovary. It was achy and constant. Some moments were more painful than others. I tried to convince myself the pains were "implantation pains" or just achy pregnancy pains typical of the first trimester.

This continued on through Wednesday, and then they stopped. I figured I had been blessed for completing all my visiting teaching by that afternoon.

Late Saturday evening, January 31st, when I was trying to finish up some preparations for singing time, the pains came back. I was a bit more freaked out this time because my dear friend Jill had just the day before experienced a ruptured Ectopic pregnancy. She could have died. She was still in the hospital recovering from blood transfusions and surgery. Not long after the pains started again on Saturday evening my friend Trish called to see if my pains had gone away. I hadn't told her about the pains returning. She described to me what happened with Jill and her pains going away and returning.

Sunday, February 1st, during church the pain level increased. I'm not sure, but maybe some of it was anxiety about Jill and her pains.

I finally decided to go get checked out. I had my referral already from my OB orientation. I saw no reason not to go- especially knowing I have really great insurance. It was better to be safe than sorry.

I am loving this story in parts! I had a kidney stone and that's how we found out for certain I was pregnant with McKenna. I went in because of that pain...knew there was a possibility. Checked and sho nuff. I was.

Can't wait for more.

You're killing me with these segements! haha.
Do you or have you charted?

Nikki said...

Amy- I've mulled over your question, and I'm just not sure if it's my pregnancy brain. What exactly do you mean by charted? Like journaling the pregnancy? Or like ovulation and periods?

That's one thing my husband said. "At least she has great insurance!" (which he haven't had for the past 2 pregnancies)

Can't wait for part 3!

Did I respond to this yet? By charted I meant fertility charted. taking your temp each day, etc... for NFP or other.
