2 days in bed

Well since early Sunday afternoon I have had some lower back pain and some pain in my tail bone. The same from earlier in the pregnancy except this time I am uncomfortable with walking, laying down, and sitting. I have also had some cramping like I am having a really bad period. On top of that Sophia has become very active and is moving around all the time. All of this.... causing me not to be able to get a good night sleep, so in turn I took Monday off of work. I did call and talk to my doctor and nurse and they reassured me that Sophia might be dropping down into position, adn that the pain in my tail bone is Sophia sitting on my nerve. They told me that if anything changes, like I can time the cramping (or what I think are Braxton Hicks contractions) then to call back if not they would see me on Wednesday for my weekly appointment.
I was hoping that resting all day Monday would be beneficial and help the pain go away, well not so much... so then I stayed home again today, but will be up and going to school tomorrow since I have a meeting that has been scheduled for weeks. So please keep me and Sophia in your thoughts and prayers that we get through the day, let alone at least another week and half so that she is 37 weeks before she decides to come.

You are both in my prayers tonight! I'll be thinking of yall tomorrow, and hope you are able to make it through the day without too much discomfort. I think she is ready to come sooner rather than later for sure!!
