As if all of my other complaints about pregnancy thus far weren't enough, I woke up to a massive, MASSIVE leg cramp this morning. Yes, there are those of you out there who may find this hard to believe, that I have managed to get to 33 1/2 weeks of pregnancy without major leg cramps. It's called preventative stretching in the mornings, where I stretch my toes UP towards me immediately. Thus far, it has helped. This morning... nothing could have stopped this mutha. Forrest came back in the room to kiss me goodbye before he left for work, and WHAM! It started. I don't know if Forrest knew what the heck happened, but all of the sudden, I was looking into his eyes, and clawing his arm, with my mouth agape, trying desperately to point my toes UP! UP DANG IT! Thankfully, my darling husband, who spent years in high school and college swimming competatively, reached down and gently helped me point my toes up. And OH THE RELIEF!!!!! My leg is a little sore right now, but it didn't last forever. Although I am sort of scared of ever going to sleep AGAIN for fear that another mutha will hit me in the middle of the night.
As an aside, last night, I only got up to use the bathroom 3 times. How is this possible? I woke up at 11:45, then 4:30, then wait... that's only twice, because you don't count when you get up in the morning to eat breakfast do you? Either I developed a super-bladder last night, or I'm now sleepwalking and don't remember when I get up, which is highly possible considering I can hardly remember my name anymore.
You guys can be thinking about and praying for Reesh (of 2 Pink Lines) and Avorie (of ReDinkyDink). Reesh is on bedrest for the next few weeks and is already 1 cm dialated, and Avorie has been having to take it easy because of contractions. I've been thinking lots about these two gals lately, and really hope that things go well with them. So head over to their sites and send them some love... :)
