Did I get hit by a truck?

I've written about my hip, groin, pelvic pain before- but this weekend it hit an all time high....and it's all my fault.

Saturday morning Steve and I took our dog for a walk.  On the way, we passed a park and there was the tiniest, cutest puppy you've ever seen.  So what do I do?  I decide I want to pet this puppy, so I walk over and attempt to squat down....bad idea.  Unbeknownst to me, my right foot was in a hole and as I went to squat my ankle rolled- this wouldn't be a problem for a lighter, less pregnant me, but as I tried to step back with my left foot, it hit the sidewalk that was higher than the ground and there was no catching myself.  I fell hard, on my ass- ouch. 

So much for the adjustment I just had at the chiropractor on Thursday.  I knocked everything out of whack and spent the rest of the weekend walking around like a 90 year old lady.

Lesson learned:  don't do any sort of squatting without support after 30 weeks of pregnancy.
