Oww, my leg.

So, among other issues I have been dealing with in this pregnancy- kidney infection, migraines, a hospital stay, kidney pain etc. I now have the pleasure of experiencing very painful leg cramps in the middle of the night. I'm not talking a little bit of muscle stiffness, this is "Stop everything you're doing, and brace for dear life" kind of pain. The first night was last weekend, Matt left VERY early in the morning to go hunting, so at least I didn't wake anyone but the dogs with my screams of painful terror. Last night was the second round of having them... mind you, at 3 o'clock in the morning. This morning's bout with leg cramps, unfortunately, woke the entire household- including the beta fish, I'm sure. I think Matt thought I was in labor. He jumped up, grabbing for me in the dark to see what was wrong. Poor guy... I yelled at him when he offered to rub my leg. "DON'T TOUCH ME!!! Just find me some pillows, and find them FAST!" haha. I try not to be over-dramatic when it comes to things like this, but let me tell you, this pain rates right up there with kidney stones. Good thing it doesn't last as long though. They say bananas help with the frequency of these things. You can bet I will be rocking some bananas in my cheeks like Curious George for the next month and a half after this morning...

Cort I LOVE the new blog. Hearing about your leg cramps in the middle of the night brings back HORRIBLE memories of my pregnancy! I experinced the same thing and let me just tell you that has been the worst pain I have ever been through so I sympothize greatly with you. Eat bananas like they are going out of style and I will pray for you that you dont have to go through with that pain anymore.
