last night i woke up with pain that kept me up most of the night. it kept me awake not becuase it was unbearable, but because it was worrying me.
the pain is more of an ache now, but it is really quite low in my abdomen. until last night i have been able to distinguish between scary, more period-like cramps and gas/constipation pain. i stayed in bed, awake and fretting for a while, then had to get up and go nurse my son.
i put him back in bed and went downstairs for a while. i took a gas-x and went and sat on the toilet for a while. after a while, there was some movement (trying to be polite here!
) and i felt a bit better.
but the pain is still there. it's still quite low, but more one sided now. it does increase a bit as i get up/sit down. could this be round ligament pain? combined with consitpation issues?
i just got up from my desk and went to the washroom and find myself a bit dizzy and nauseous. i've had some yogurt and that seemed to help the nausea a bit. the dizzy/shakiness could likely be because i had a cup of coffee this morning as i hardly got any sleep last night. i hardly ever have caffiene.
i feel this is likely a non-issue other than some discomfort and is due to slow plumbing and gas....but part of me is still worried. any thoughts?
