I haven't written all that much about what I'm going through with the pregnancy, mostly because I am so grateful to be here that I don't want to appear to be complaining, but recently the 'symptoms' of pregnancy are starting to become rather annoying, and more than a little painful!
Last night I was woken up at 4.30am with cramp in my calf on my left leg, it left me screaming in agony as I'm not used to this (although this is the 2nd time in 2 weeks - last time it was my right leg). However prior to this I think I've only ever had a cramp 2 or 3 times in my life!
When I'm in bed, I'm finding that most nights now it's getting very uncomfortable, even though we have a memory foam mattress (can't imagine how bad it would be on a normal mattress!), but my hips, back and groin area seem to get stiff and painful which makes getting up to go to the loo or turning over in the night very painful too!
When I'm out walking in the day, I can manage a couple of hours, but I'm still suffering with pelvic pain at the back and now also groin pain at the front.
So generally being pregnant is damned uncomfortable, with outbreaks of pain!
Oh and I haven't slept through the night since June, as I'm up at least 3-4 times a night to use the loo, I figured this was good practice though for when the babies are here!
I'm not complaining though, I'm still very much thrilled to be where we are right now, and if this is what I have to cope with then so be it - I've already had a thousand needles poked in me, been probed, cut open, prodded, examined etc more than I care, so if I have to have this for the next 12 weeks in order to have 2 gorgeous little girls - then bring it on...
