Pregnancy Woes

So I spent a couple hours in the Labor and Delivery ward on Monday just to find out that I have a back ache. Nothing too serious, I'm just supposed to take it easy for a few days and try not to lift anything heavy - like my 20 pound 10 month old. And how, exactly, does a homeschooling, stay-at-home-mom take it easy? I'll just let the maid and nanny take over doing all the hard jobs -- yeah and the chef can get dinner tonight too. So, I'm doing what I can to relax and not pick up the baby too many times. But the real kicker for me are the GREAT pain-relievers they give pregnant women in pain, namely, Tylenol. So, as I sit here in pain that isn't even slightly dulled by Tylenol, I wonder who in their right minds would EVER think that a pregnant, stay-at-home, homeschooling, mom would be able to "take it easy" for ANY length of time. I think I could take over the doctor's job for a day or two and get more rest. Oh well, I'm off to put the kids to bed, er, put my feet up :)
