I don't know what's wrong with me but it feels like every time I have to go to the hospital, it's in the middle of the night. So this past week I got UTI (urinary tract infection) and I read that it could go away on it's own with lots of water, cranberry juice and keeping your bladder empty. But after a few days if it doesn't go away to go to the doctor. I had one a couple months ago and it went away by itself so I figured this one would. Well today was the day I was actually going to go see the doctor but I think I waited a little too long. I went to bed with a little pain in my back under my ribs on the right side. But almost just felt like a knot or something. I woke up at 1:30am and had to go to the bathroom and the pain in my back was a little worse, well I figured I'd go to sleep and it go away. Literally 8 minutes later I was moaning in excruciating pain! I was going to throw up and pass out at the same time. Nothing made it feel better and it was getting worse by the second! I honestly think labour was better! At least the contractions stop for a couple minutes! So we called Jill, thank goodness Travis is off for a few days, and she came right over. I couldn't even walk it hurt so bad. So ends up I had a kidney infection, which I kind of figured it was, and they gave me 3 different antibiotics right away and some wicked painkillers. I don't even know what they were called, it started with a P. Prim...something. Anyways we were in and out in 2 hours by the time the whole IV went through me. It still hurts a little, just sore to touch. Man I hate having problems.
So I think I learned my lesson on waiting and maybe it's better to go to the doctor right away. I just hate having to book an appointment and find someone to watch the kids etc etc. So I usually just hope and pray that I get better on my own. Thank goodness for painkillers though! Oh and of course Jill! Thank you so much, you saved me!
