Cristi, don’t worry too much about the abnormal pap, or any irregular test that comes back. It’s hard not to worry about it, but until the follow up tests are done, there is really nothing you can do to make it better.Obsessing about it only sucks the life out of you and compromises your mental well being.
As for the pain in your back: is it like a muscular pain or a bone pain? You ( and any other woman with kids here knows) that as you get closer to delivering a baby your ligaments become softer and elongate to make the (watch for oxymoron) labor easier.
After labor they just don’t snap back into place ( and for you younger girls without kids, sometimes the muscles and ligaments never go back to their original elasticity. Sorry to break the bad news to you.But there it is, the cold hard truth. A waist is a terrible thing to mind :))
Since you have another little one at home and the baby ( and the hubby too ) you may have …who am I kidding…you HAVE been overdoing it. Try stretching at night and heating pads, tylenol. Try to keep track of when the back pain bothers you and after a few weeks, if it hasn’t subsided, go to your doctor.
As you said, You probably are a little hypersensitive ( what new mom isn’t, with all those extra hormones running through your system) compounded by the loss of your beloved Grandma.You’ve had a rough couple of months! So every little twinge and ache is going to set off warning bells in your head. Take a deep breath (feel better?)and handle one catastrophe at a time.
We are here for you.
