Don't get me wrong. It's not like I want to just whine and complain all the time about my pregnancy. I love my baby and I really like some of the fringe benefits of being pregnant...BUT yesterday and this morning were bad. I went to bed with swollen ankles and feet.
Of course the root cause was attending J's cousin's wedding in SF. Amazing chinese wedding....lots of food, lots of drinks, lots of lion dancing, some dancing...lots of waiting. I didn't get a chance to take a nap or get my feet elevated and I ended up with really swollen feet and ankles. It was a very LONG day. Lucky for me, J massaged my feet as I went to sleep.
...then the rude awakening at 7:45am a massive leg cramp. I was crying out in pain and you know how leg cramps go, you know what you have to do but it hurts so bad you don't want to move or relax...once again J came to the rescue to hold my foot straight to release the tension in my calf. After all that happen I realized that I'm such a whimp and if I can't even handle these slight discomforts(almost forgot the increasing backpain) I'm going to be a wuss when it comes to labor and delivery. Aiyaaa!!!!
