I have never experienced anything like these cramps.  I was in agony for most of yesterday.  It hurt too much to cry.  I took a Vicodin every two hours from 4:00 on and it had very little effect.  I lay down and tried to breathe and watched CSI for five straight hours.  I thought about going to the emergency room but I didn’t know what they would have done for me.  I’ve had bad cramps since I was eleven years old and never had anything like this.  I slept OK from 3 til about 7 am and now I have to go to the clinic for blood draw.  I doubt they’ll do anything for me either.  In the background there is something about Thanksgiving, getting the house cleaned, losing our baby, but right now there is so much pain and exhaustion I’m just hoping to survive.
