On Monday, I went to see one of my midwives who made me laugh as I recounted our ER story. She was particularly disgusted with the ER nurse who couldn't find the baby's heartbeat and exclaimed in exasperation, "you should have yelled at her that you wanted a new, competent nurse!" I appreciated her candor.
What was hard to hear, however, is that she thinks the sprain will take a long time to heal. Since I can't take any anti-inflammatory medication because of the pregnancy, I won't have medication to help me speed up the healing process. She wants me to take it easy and to take my time. "That means no aerobics," she sternly decreed. OK, aerobics is not CrossFit, but point taken. My hope is that in a couple weeks I can get back to CF to work on some upper body strength and to see my friends and coaches -- and just get out of the house. But my dream of being the awesome CrossFitting pregnant momma who would WOD up until labor has been shattered, so I have to adjust to slowing down.
So on that note, anyone have any good movies/TV shows on Netflix/books to recommend? I'm currently finishing up "Animal, Vegetable Miracle" and I got to read a lot of the New York Times on Sunday. I guess I might as well embrace my mandatory couch "stay-cation!"
And random side note: I never realized how hard it was to use crutches. Between the crutches and my belly, balance is quite challenging these days!
