2 days ago, I told big C that my butt is "sleeping". It felt as though one side was drooping and completely numb and the other side was swinging left and right. We gotto use tiger balm to "revive" my left butt.
Last night, I had a lil accident after I sneezed. I thought of changing into a new pair of panty. So I walked over and as I turned my body, my left body (from waist down to the thigh) was in so much pain. It felt like as if my tendon was all twisted. All I can do was to shout for Big C to come. He asked me what happened and the only way I can explain was "MY BUTTOCK DIED!" He tried to get me to sit, but cannot. Tried to get me to lie down-cannot. So at the end he just held me and we stood there for sometime. Of course, I cried in pain. Jayden came and said "I WANG ! I WANG! I WANG! ( I want)" Want what?Aiyoh my son...yr mother is in pain and you samo want what la? I never bother to find out what he wanted. Poor kid...
After that, I managed to lie face down with many many pillows underneath my chest , making way for my belly down there. My buttock faced up like a chicken all ready to be roasted. So the whole night I couldn't move much, I cannot turn my body left or right and baby J was sitting right on top of my backbone-not a very comfortable position for a pregnant woman.
Don't know what was wrong with Jayden. He wanted to climb over to sleep with us. The whole night he tried to stick to me, sharing the same pillow with me and basically pinning me to the wall. Guess I scared him when I shouted for his father earlier, he had nightmare and said " DADDY!! DADDYY!!DADADDYYYYY!!!! (perfect imitation of me :P) And at last at 5am, he told me "I WANG NEN NEN" ( I want milk). Although I was in pain but I'm happy that finally my son can talk in a sentence formed up with more than 2 words. So I went to the kitchen walking like a penguin and made him milk.
This morning I went to my doc and she said that "Ah... it came back". Yeah IT came back. I had the similar problem when I was pregnant in my early stage but I never blogged about it. Now, it came back. Apparently my joints were swollen and it affected one part of the lower back that is my buttock area. So when I said "MY BUTTOCK DIED" the doctor and the nurse said "ahhh........" FINALLY someone understand me when I said my butt died. They said its common and I'm lucky (for now) cos some of her patients comes in with walking stick.
Dr scanned my baby and she said that the water level in the placenta seems to be very low. Right now the reading (what reading ? I don't know. Doctor say like that means like that la....) is 8.5 and the critical level is 6. So I need to buck up and drink more water, rest, lie down more often,
eat more curry mee, drink more bubble tea, watch more CSI, don't need to do housework, and quit my job.
So what if the water level does not increase? I might have to take steroid jab and get baby's lungs matured earlier and get baby out. And because of the buttock case, I maybe- won't be able to give birth naturally and may need to go for c sec. *tik tak calculator and wipe Big C's sweat*
