Last night I woke up screaming bloody murder. Travis awoke and instantly worried that something was horribly wrong with the baby.
The baby is fine.
The reason for my crying out in agony: a charlie horse.
But not just any charlie horse, mind you, this one was the mother of all charlie horses. Travis kept telling me to point my toes towards my body. I kept yelling in pain, saying I couldn't (which was mostly true - the muscles were super tight). Finally he got up, walked around the bed, held my foot with one hand - pushing the toes towards my body - and massaged my calf with the other. I finally shut up and we both went back to sleep but still, almost 24 hours later, my leg still hurts.
Since I think it's pregnancy related I'm chalking it up to taking one for the team. :)
