31 weeks pregnant and my belly has popped way out there. A few people have even asked “Where did that come from?”. My maternity clothes are starting to feel snug too. Wonder if they’ll still fit in another 6 weeks? I’ll probably be waddling around in nothing but muumuus by then. Otherwise there’s a small tent in the garage that might do the trick!
My burgeoning belly has brought on some very unwelcome symptoms. Sleeping is becoming more and more difficult as my hips ache during the night and I’m currently being woken by painful headaches. I’ve been using a full pregnancy body pillow, but it doesn’t seem to be keeping me as comfortable as before. Not to mention the other night I had quite the rude awakening – my first leg cramp. I woke Hubby with a fright as I screamed out in pain for help. I growled at him to “Grab hold of my leg and stretch my calve out!”. Dazed and confused he did so at an annoyingly delayed pace, but eventually managed to make it stop. I’ve read leg cramps are more common in the third trimester, I just hope I don’t suffer another – it hurt like a mofo!
