A lonely spill.

We are 33 weeks tomorrow. Incredible really. I have no restrictions! I am even allowed to have sex (but don't tell my DH that;) As a result I am probably pressing my luck a bit. I have been a maniac - cleaning, painting, cooking, lifting, etc. My mom was here for the weekend helping me sew a new slip cover for our wretchedly old and gross couch. I pushed it.

DH is out of town for nearly two weeks, so after my mom's visit I was exhausted. My back ached from sewing and cooking all weekend. I was just zonked. The boy went to bed easy and I headed downstairs to catch up on my TV programs. As I reached the bottom of the steps I biffed it. My socked feet slipped from under me and I bumped down the remaining three stairs on ass and hands. It wasn't a bad fall, but enough to shake me up. I sat there for a minute, all pathetic-like and cried a little. What else is a girl to do?

I woke up this morning with a pink coloration to my normal discharge (sorry if TMI.) It is not that uncommon for me, especially after a BM (again, sorry if TMI.) I think my stitch just gets a little irritated. I am just keeping an eye on it and ready to call my OB if it worsens. I also called my the MIL to come get the boy for the day so I can just rest.

I fell in my last pregnancy. I guess it is pretty normal. Just you just feel so stupid, and pathetic, and stupid. Ugh.

Here to one more week. Soon I'll be scheduling the removal of my stitch! I can't believe it.

Oh man... falling down the steps is never fun- and usually embarrassing, but being in a higher risk pregnancy is scary. I hope you & the little babe are fine- glad you are taking it easy today!

Hope you are doing well now after you spill. I havent fallen this pregnancy but run my darn pinky toe into every corner wall imaginable.
My cerclage removal is scheduled for 2wks from now! How soon we get to hold our babies!

Ugghh! I fell in a parking lot during my pregnancy and again stepping off a curb - lots of people to watch both. So I feel your pain there. Take care and hang in there. That baby can throw your balance off when you least expect it. I am so happy for you having made it this far with much more ease than the last. Congratulations on everything dear!!
