Up All Night

It’s 3:10 a.m. right now. I’m up because I have vicious heartburn AND I hurt my back a couple hours ago. We went to bed at midnight and at 1 a.m. I was still wide awake. I was laying on my right side and went to flip onto my left. I’ve gotten pretty adept at the flip, but for some reason just as I began to move I felt a twinge in my mid-lower back and I think I actually felt something MOVE in my back. All of a sudden I had really bad back pain and NO position would make it feel better. By 2:30 a.m. I was still awake, still in pain, and decided to get up and find a chiropractor on my health insurance’s website. This way I can call right at 9 a.m. and try to set up an appointment first thing before the housecleaner shows up at 11 a.m.

I’ve now been working on Cootiehog for the past 45 minutes because Denis hit a bug that forced him to post the same “Mets Stink” post five times. I finally got it fixed and am able to post myself. Yes, at 3:13 a.m.

My Signature


  1. Bummer, man…I hope the chiropractor helps.

    And at least you can take a nap later now that you’re not working.

  2. Jen…if she could nap she would not be up at 3 am fixing cootiehog!! Jaynee…I feel your pain but the end is near and when you look into that beautiful little face you will not remember nights like this. You will however, be looking into that face at 3 am for a few months to come but that is whole different topic all together!

  3. Hope you are able to go to the chiro. It will surely help. No point in putting up with any pain before you go into labor. In fact, it would be better to address this issue before you go into labor. The only thing is the chiro will want to do xrays before treating you and you don’t want to do that to the baby. So, you may be in a fix.

  4. Going to the chiro is a good idea, but he would want to take xrays before treating you and you don’t want to do that to the baby. So you may have to wait until after birth.

  5. Going to the chiro is a good idea, but the dr. would probably want to take xrays before treating you, and that wouldn’t be good for the baby. You might be in a fix.
