07 May 2010 Back pains are no fun
 |  Category: health

This pregnancy has not been nearly as fun as my last one. A couple days ago my back started hurting, and today it feels even worst. Tim is gone today and tomorrow in Kansas City and then hopefully going to try to see his littlest sister before heading home. I have our next baby check-up on the 17th, so I’m wanting to hold off until then to see how I do, but I’m getting really nervous. Every time I pick Hannah up I really feel the pain, and it doesn’t seem to go away. Even just leaning over the tub this morning to bathe Hannah was a struggle. It’s times like these when I wish we lived closer to family. I hate feeling helpless, so I push myself, but then I don’t want to injure myself. Please be praying for me through this. We have a YMCA opening next month, which I would love to get a family membership for, but it’s still a little pricy to add to a monthly bill even though we just canceled our tv and home phones, hoping to free up some money for the Y. It might still be a good investment anyways so I can spend some time in the pool to get some weight off and work out on some light weight machines to strengthen my back.

It’s crazy ’cause I had no problems at all while in Haiti. Everyone watched out for me, which was nice and I felt very undeserving of it. But I slept great and never got ill or felt bad. My biggest prayer is that I can get my body working well so I can be well when our Mexico mission trip gets here in July. I wasn’t pushing for Hannah to learn how to crawl until my back started hurting. It’d be awesome if she could get herself around the house for me. So now for mother’s day I would like a break from picking up Hannah so I can rest my back after this weekend. Hopefully that’ll be easy enough to get.

On a good note, Baby Schmoyer has been very active lately. It’s fun to feel him/her move around. I can’t wait to be able to watch my belly move and be able to feel the movements on the outside, so Tim and Hannah can feel it too.

  1. Praying for you today. Our baby is at 34 weeks now! Coming so soon, or so it seems. 🙂

  2. That’s really hard, I will be really praying for you all!!! I printed out that adorable picture of you and Hannah and am putting it in my prayer journal to remember to pray for you guys. Please send me and other specific prayer request you have! ashleyc82 @ mac .com (no spaces 🙂

    I just wanted to mention, I’m not sure exactly how old Hannah is or if you are there yet, but my kids from about ages 9-18 months really wanted to be held all the time. It’s just separation anxiety and I dealt with it by carrying them around in an ergo a lot while they were awake. It was a great solution for us. I think different kid’s personalities are different and they might not need this much holding or respond better to intentionally not being picked up better than mine did. So I don’t know how you feel about this or what you can physically do or how Hannah’s personality is but I just wanted to give you a little heads up of what I experienced. You may find yourself holding Hannah more often and your newborn hanging out. 🙂
