Buuuuusssyyyyyyyyy uuuugh.... Pregnancy stuff
Not going to go on about the negative stuff (I've not been having a great time through this pregnancy; & I can't wait for the baby to get here so I can function like a normal human being again & go about enjoying my new addition to the family)
but I'll tell you a funny story that happened last night.
Not sure if anyone knows; but one ailment that you can suffer from when you're pregnant is leg cramps (anyone can get them; but they seem quite a common problem in pregnancy)
I never had them with my first; but I was hit with them with my 2nd pregnancy. I remember completely freaking out because I had never had them before; ever, & given how much pain I was in I thought something was seriously wrong (it always happened when I woke up)
I've ensured to be extra careful this time & not over exert my legs when I wake up in the morning or when I'm trying to get comfortable in bed.
I had it once when I was visiting my sister during the holidays, I think it's because I'd done far too much walking whilst I was there.
But anyways... It bloody happened again last night.
A decent night's sleep has pretty much been a huge no-no over the past few months (which is expected sadly)
; & I find myself having to toss & turn all through the night.
Well as I was trying to turn over; it hit me again. That horrible agonizing pain shot through my calf muscle; & I wasn't even over exerting myself.
I tried to 'deal with it' quietly, thinking I'd just wait for the pain to pass as I really didn't want to wake Gareth up (he had work the next morning)
But I guess he must be a light sleeper, because he woke up with a start & asked me what's wrong.
Apparently I scared the absolute shit out of him because he thought I'd gone into labour or something
I'm surprised he didn't completely freak out; poor guy
You know; I could be really cruel & freak him out all the time. Maybe tip some water on the kitchen floor & say my water broke or something
.... Might not be a wise idea actually... Don't really want a 'boy who cried wolf' scenario Artsy stuff?
Oh man; let me tell you guys... Motivation to do anything
has been pretty much non existent these past few months, & I really mean anything. I haven't even been playing any computer games; at all, I just don't have the energy or the focus at the moment. That's usually when I can tell something odd is going on; when I don't pick up the controller for a long time
Apparently it's relatively normal at this stage? I'm guessing it's because of the lack of sleep & my hormones making my mind shift onto other things... Like cleaning.... yay *sarcasm*
It's quite annoying some days because I'll think to myself 'ooh; I really fancy drawing/playing this' etc. But when I finally have the time I just sort of; slump in my chair, too tired & waiting for the clock to tick down so I can go to bed
That & I can't sit at my computer desk for too long without getting incredibly uncomfortable... & Trying to find a comfortable position to sit in when you have a huge baby belly in front of you is surprisingly difficult. There have been a few occasions where I've ended up having a sulk because I just can't draw properly thanks to the baby belly being in the way
Ah well. Not too long to wait now.
Although I do think he'll be over due like his two brothers were, so he'll probably be born mid- November, not late October. We'll just have to wait & see I suppose. Can't wait
