[QUOTE=peilover010202][QUOTE=rebeccalizzie]Heck, working out nothing...I couldn't even make myself keep working, and I have a desk job! In my defense though, I have some kind of problem with my ribs and it makes sitting up for any length of time pretty painful. But still...
No, the doctor thinks I have costochondritis, which is an inflammation of the muscles and tissues between my ribs. And possibly a stress fracture as a result of the swelling, but he can't really test me for either one because he can't do x rays. And I'm off the ibuprofen and he doesn't want to do steroids unless the pain is unbearable, so he put me on partial bedrest to see if that helps. I'm glad he's not rushing to prescribe a bunch of stuff!
Did they figure out exactly what the problem was with your ribs?
I feel your pain with working. I'm getting so uncomfortable sitting at my desk all day. dh keeps telling me to bring my birth ball in - and I know my back would be far less achey if I did it - but I just cannot bring myself to do it. this is my last week working FT anyway. Next week, I'll just be coming in for an hour here and there so my mat leave doesn't "officially" start until the week of my edd. And, if I'm still pregnant then, I'll work a bit into the following week too.
