I follow up with the doctor on Thursday after my gall bladder removal and hernia repair that couldn't wait until after birth. I am now 23 weeks and the baby seems to be doing well. I keep being concerned that I had to take all those pain meds prior to, during, and after the surgery, but am trying to let that go.
Most people recover from this surgery in 10-14 days and I'm getting frustrated, b/c it's day 11 and any time I'm on my feet/being active for more than 30 minutes, I start hurting/bleeding. I guess the 10-14 day average is typically women who are NOT pregnant, but I find myself worrying that I'm going to be home-bound the rest of the pregnancy. Why worry when you can't do anything about it, right? Still, I can't help it. Going absolutely insane sitting around all day.
Anyone on bed-rest who has found a way to cope with the passing time while you're frustrated sitting on your duff all day?
