OW! OW! OW!!!!

I woke up this morning to terrible, "charlie-horse" type leg cramps in my right leg. The muscle would just sieze up and you could actually feel the leg heat up from it. I wasn't even doing anything! I was just laying there and BAM. Pain.

So ready for this baby.

oh my. theresa i can totally sympathise. i had the worst charlie horse cramps just about every night of both of my pregnancies. i would still be in pain even after they went away, like id have residual leg cramping all day long, almost like the inside of my leg was bruised. honestly, im of the opinion that that pain is almost worse than the actual pain of childbirth, only it doesnt last as long. (can you imagine having a charley horse for hours on end???!)

ive actually had a few nights recently where i was woken up with charlie horse pain. i would be sleeping and then suddenly it would feel as if someone was taking my muscles and tying them in knots. my first thought was "oh god im pregnant!" because that seems to be the only time i get them. but (thankfully) im not pregnant, just hormonally messed up because of the pill. so yeah, im right there with you in that regard.
hang in there. :)

Yeah, that's kind of how it's been all day. Like I worked out that one leg for days and now the muscle is all sore. I've been limping around trying to stretch it out with out actually stretching it. This is the first time I've ever gotten leg cramps this bad while pregnant.

Oof, I got them with Jeffrey and then got them TIMES TWO with River. Her chemistry and mine were in battle all the time. Migraines, zits, and awful cramps. And the worst was not being able to stretch.

Not too much longer, sweetums...Hugs to you!
