Basically that searing pain hurt so badly that my OB sent me in here. It's likely the baby kicked my ribs so hard that I have either cracked or bruised one.
We can't confirm that because I can't get an x-ray and an ultrasound wouldn't be definitive. But, gee whiz the resident agreed to give my tylenol! I am such a lucky girl!!!
Sigh...it is so hard not to roll my eyes sometimes....God grant me the strength....
Updated---the staff doc just ordered an US to double check my placenta and make sure that it isn't a placental tear causing the pain. (Which was my secret fear all along however unlikely.) Have I mentioned how much I love seeing real Docs instead of residents?
Pray for a broken rib people!
