You see, I'm so agile and mobile at this stage of the pregnancy. 37 weeks- farthest that I've made it in my 3 pregnancies. Well in my lightspeed movement to snatch the kiddo before he smacked the bottom and REALLY shook things up for tonight I got a Charlie Horse, a leg cramp if you prefer. And holy hannah it's a doozy! Dare say it's the worst I've had since swim team in high school--perhaps worst ever even. I fear something might actually be torn. So I've been stretching it and trying to walk on it. Then I got online and looked up what you should do for a torn calf muscle. Ice it- preferrably in the first ten minutes. Stay off of it and for heaven's sake DON'T STRETCH IT. Dang. Missed the memo on that one. It's wrapped up at the moment and when the boys are finally in bed and Daddy has a spare moment I'll have him get me the peas from the freezer. Until then- "I got you babe. duh duh duh duh duh duh. I got you babe."
Perhaps I'll figure out how to get that magic pinterest favorite button thingie on my laptop. I have it on the desktop but alas- I don't know how to find it past the initial tutorial Anyone have tips? I have Chrome browser and so far googling it hasn't helped.
I'll let you know if all this adrenaline and excitement puts me into labor. So far- we've got no real contractions or anything so I think we're ok for a bit.
