      OMG Liz, that is so crappy. I feel so bad for you. I thought only being able to take tylenol when I had migraines was bad, but this is sooo much worse. Is there nothing at all that you can take? You are in your first trimester as well right? That means you probably can't take anything else. I really hope it heals fast. Are you going to be off work for a while?

        Ouch!! At least ice won't hurt the baby either. Maybe you could keep it numb for a few days? Oh, and benadryl to help you sleep through the worst of it!

          Ugh!!! That sucks Lizz!!! I also almost had a heart attack when I saw your thread thinking it was something with the baby...

          Hopefully you'll heal quickly! Try to keep your hand elevated which should help a bit with the pain, and ice it! Sucky that you can only take Tylenol, but thank goodness they weren't broken!

          Oh no that sounds like the longest 20 - 30 seconds EVER!!!! Totally makes me cringe I've seen people break their fingers because of a car door before! I panicked when I saw this thread, glad to see it was minor and not involving your baby!

            My mom thought it was about the baby too when I called her from the ER...sorry to scare you girls!

            I'm still in my 1st trimester so only tylenol. Ugh...I have to get root canal in 2 weeks with only tylenol too...bad timing on these things.

            I'm a little nervous b/c this is my 2nd xray in a month (the other @ the dentist). They double-shielded my stomach both times, but still...

            I think this is workers comp, so they'll pay for it which is nice. But when I looked at the ppwk. when I got home I saw the dr. wrote I could return to work Monday. 80% of my job is computer-based, so I'm not sure how that's going to work. He said I have to wear the splint for at least a week.

            I'm totally milking this and just made Mike order me dinner and he's now playing wiffle ball with my nephew who I'm babysitting overnight.

            (Wow, that just took me like 10 minutes to type this!!!)

              Well, at least your finger will hurt less after the root canal! Stub your toe, and maybe you'll forget about your mouth too! Just think how much this is preparing you for delivering a baby!

              Don't worry about the xray. I work in the operating room and there are always girls who are pregnant. We use xrays on almost every surgery, and the ones who are pregnant just use lead every single time. The babies are always healthy, and there is way more radiation in those rooms than you'll ever get! So, no worries!
