My hump.

Yesterday, Peanut had to go to the vet. She is a monster at the vet. So I wanted to wear her out a bit before we went. I had a whole plan. I had to stay after school with students, but then I was going to go home and take her rollerblading so she'd hopefully be more sedated at her appointment.

I've gone with her before and it's never been a problem. I'm a pretty experienced rollerblader and have fallen very few times.

But I wasn't counting on the barking, teasing dog on the 2 blocks where I was taking her. (Back and forth and back and forth...)

Long story short, I fell HARD, right on my butt. I wasn't even able to break my fall with my hands. (I guess that probably saved my wrists...)

I am in a lot of pain today. Dr. Google tells me that there isn't a lot you can do for a bruised or broken coccyx. He suggests ice and ibuprofen. Unfortunately, post ET I'm not supposed to take ibuprofen. So I've been substituting tylenol. Which has done little.

So I called my clinic today and asked if there was anything else I could take, and they have directed I go to my primary doctor. So I'm headed that way in about two hours.

I'm so irritated, though. First of all, how stupid of me. Second of all, like I need something ELSE to go wrong right now. Grrrrr.

I hope they give me something good. The nurse I talked to at the RE said to tell them I needed something approved for pregnancy. There must be something they can give me.... Ugh.

Oh no! I'm sorry you fell and are in pain! I can't rollerblade for my life...I have NO balance! I hope that the doctor can get you some meds that you can take!

Ugh! I broke my tailbone about 7 years ago. Super painful. You never realize how much you use your ass, until you break it! I did a lot of sitting to one cheek or the other and I used a "donut" it def helped.
