Poppin’ and Lockin’

Mom had two straight nights of pop free sleep but it was a short-lived success. The popping has come back with a vengeance for the last two nights and it’s worse than ever. Since there isn’t a single position that Mom can sleep in without feeling pain in one place or another, night time is the worst part of Mom’s day.

Unfortunately, the morning isn’t that much better. It takes a few minutes for Mom to rotate her legs out of the bed and get herself into a seated position. If she moves too fast she’ll put weight on her pelvis before she’s had a chance to get it properly aligned and that means a whole world of pain. When she finally does get out of bed, it takes a while for Mom to get her land legs back and to get used to changing weight from one leg to the other.

On top of all that, walking has been especially painful today. Usually walking is only painful if Mom accidentally takes a step that is too big or if Mom steps onto or off the sidewalk the wrong way. But today every single step hurt and that’s a first.

Mom’s midwife said it’s time to send us to an OB to see if there’s anything that can be done to prevent this from getting too much worse in the next three months. So now we just have to wait to find out where we’re getting sent.
