Another Restless Night

Sleep in becoming an issue for me every night. My back hurts so bad and there is no comfortable position. I'm not sure if my back hurts because I have been sleeping on it for three weeks straight, or because I have what feels like a ton of bricks on my chest. Although getting expanded has been such a blessing, I am beginning to wonder if it is the source of the problem. I have heard of women complaining of back pain because of their large bust size, but I never expected to fall into that category. I don't think it is their size, but rather their lack of movement. I would give anything to lay on my side and have everything just kind of relax, if you know what I mean. I do know this, I can't go another four months with only a few hours of sleep each night. With that being said, I am going to put a call into the doctor to see if he can't provide me with any amount of relief. Not getting enough sleep is so frustrating and annoying. I haven't felt well rested since my surgery.

We are headed up to St. Louis today and I am a little worried about the amount of sleep I will get in the hotel. Maybe I'll rest better, but I'm not counting on it. Please pray for safe travels and that my back pain would subside.

Hey Mel! Good luck on your trip to St. Louis. Your post about your back pain reminded me of when I was pregnant with Callen. I know it's not the same thing, but I couldn't sleep on my side when I was pregnant because of my hips, and I had major back pain. I found the most comfy way to sleep was propped up on the loveseat or in a recliner with a heat pad on the offending back muscles. A pillow under me knees took some of the pressure off of my back as well.

Hey girl,

Just checkin in to see how your appt went. I know how frustrated you must be with the back pain, that is no fun. Hopefully they can give you something to sleep and also a muscle relaxer. I am sure that you are tensed up from compensating your muscles for so long! I will add that in my prayers for you. Call me with the update.

Love and prayers!
