So, I'm on my second day of awful wrist pain. I need my blog friends to help me figure out what's wrong so I don't have to pay money to go to the doctor. I am having trouble holding stuff, and it hurts most on my wrist, thumb and pointer finger. It is a shooting pain that makes me want to borrow all 92 hours of Page's Anne of Green Gables movies, bake chocolate chip cookies and cheese dip, and just watch movies and eat until the pain goes away. I could barely hold a wipe last night when changing Reed's diaper.
So far here is what I have diagnosed. Pregnancy induced carpal tunnel syndrome due to increased fluid retention. It will require me to rest my wrist for at least two weeks and wear a splint, which means Shane gets to hire us a live in nanny/maid until I can resume normal daily activities. Do ya'll think that sounds about right?! hahaha. The bad thing is my wrist is good enough to check my email, unload the dishwasher, and cook a slammin' good birthday breakfast for Shane who turned 32 today!!! Happy Birthday Shaney!
