Yesterday morning I needed a belt for my jeans. Around 3pm, it felt like someone had dug both hands into my uterus and were wringing it out like a dishrag. An hour later, I couldn’t fasten the button on my pants. The cramps were so bad that when I stopped for gas on the way home, I had to lean the seat back to get into my car. My feet were falling asleep and I had a Dodge ball for an abdomen.

Today I look like I’m starting my third trimester. The cramps start as pressure on my shoulders and work down. The pain has me gripping the arms of my chair. I did have a perfectly valid script for Vicodin, but that’s almost impossible to get now. Kind words/advice would be appreciated.
