Leg Cramp

You know those lovely things that attack your calf muscle while you are sleeping!
Fun at any time but I dare ya to try one when you are 8 months pregnant!
Just try jumping out of bed to walk it off, go on I double dog dare ya.

At about 2:00 maybe 3:00 in the morning a few nights ago, my left calf was riddled with a cramp. I could not jump out of bed like I could pre-pregnancy and was left with only one choice. To scream at the top of my lungs in pain, in hopes my snoring husband would hear me and help me out of bed.

Craig to the rescue and Molson up to see “what the eff is going on”. Craig jumps out of bed (as though someone had just lit a fire up under his ass, seriously it was that fast) and hurries over to my side of the bed. I hold out my hand so that he can help me get the eff up. He stands there staring at me with the widest eyes I have ever seen. There was a clear look of panic in those eyes. Like calm down buddy, it’s just a leg cramp.

“It’s my leg, a cramp. Help me up.”
He does and once I walk it off a bit, we get back into bed and I say,
“Did I scare you?”
“Yes, I thought you were going into labour.”

As I roll over (in a 16 point turn I might add, because there is nothing smooth about rolling this belly over), I think outloud, “hmmm, labour eh? What the hell am I in for if you are supposed to be the calm supportive one. I can see it now.”

In my defense…you woke up screaming in agony….not exactly what I pictured the whole “going into labour thing” being all about. The next night during the BH contractions, I was very calm and rational.

I used to get the most uncomfortable leg cramps while I was on the Pill! Definitely not fun!
Take care.
