I had to call my doctor this morning. I have been experiencing a considerable amount of bleeding as well as some abdominal discomfort. I was told to keep an eye on things and if the bleeding got worse or didn’t get any better by tomorrow afternoon, to call back. She also told me that I was doing too much and I needed to take it easy. I had been feeling good so I had been doing more. I guess it was too much. Well, and I didn’t know I was still on a weight restriction. It’s not like I was moving furniture or carrying big bags of laundry, but I did lift my daughter out of the car a couple of times and I was doing a lot of cleaning.
What did I do after I talked to my doctor? Dropped my kids off at my parents’ house then went to work in my classroom. It’s not like I could have avoided it. I haven’t been to work in almost 4 weeks and I had no idea where the substitute had left off. I had nothing planned for next week. My mom pointed out that if I don’t take it easy, I won’t be going back to work. I reminded her that regardless of whether I am there or not, something still needs to be planned and no one is going to do it for me. I spent roughly two and a half hours there, trying to mostly sit. I did have to stand at the copy machine for awhile, but I tried to keep it to a minimum.
I’m going to work on working less. Hmmm….
