Ok, I am thinking that I might have broken my foot on Friday. I've been on bedrest 12 weeks already, and I only get up to go to the bathroom and from the bed to the couch. But my friend who is going to stay with me for 5 months went home to visit her family, and the ladies of my church are helping. A friend decided to take me to her house and let me do bedrest there. I just had to walk to and from the car.
It went well but on the way back to the car to come home, I missed a 2 inch ledge and fell. I had something in my hands and couldn't catch myself, so I tried to use my foot. I hit toes first, (the bottom of my toes, as if I were trying to stand tippy toe) and all my weight hit my foot.
My first concern was for my baby, but surprisingly, it didn't cause a single contraction. But my foot is another story. It has been 3 days and I still can't step on it.... I am thinking thaat I may have fractured my 1st metatarcal, which is what might hppen to a soccer player if he kicked the ball tooo hard. It is halfway between the big toe and my ankle. I haven't gone in to get it checked. I don't want e-rays, if it is not an emergancy, and a trip to the ER coud put me into labor, and I am only 24 weeks.
Anyway, after reading up online, I am pretty sure that the only thing they would do is have me stay off of it. I am doing that already, lol. I guess bedrest is good time to do something like that, huh? it doesn't hurt much, just a dull ache, if it is left completely alone. Bumping or jarring is a major no-no. I can't put any weight on it, but I can hobble to the bathroom using the outer edge of my foot, and that is pretty tolerable.
What do you think? Am I okay to wait this out? It should be better long before bedrest is over. And I am thinking that it is just a hairline fracture. It doesn't need setting or anything.
