I had bad cramps last night – so bad that I could barely walk I had cramps in the pregnancy with JBB as well but not so bad so early. The only thing keeping me sane was the fact that there was no bleeding. The sheer pain of the cramps had me worried enough to call the OB to see if there was anything that I could do. Unfortunately my OB was on leave so I had to speak to another one who doesn’t know about all my issues but he did alleviate my fears enough to be able to sleep (after having some pain killers) and this morning when I woke up, they were almost gone.
I thought I wouldn’t have as many cramps this pregnancy because my uterus would have been stretched out with JBB. I did some Dr Googling this morning and it turns out that people who have had caesareans seem to get worse cramping in subsequent pregnancies – bummer.
I am not sure whether I have any control of it. I had pretty bad cramps last Tuesday as well and I have been trying to compare what I did on both those days but there doesn’t seem to be anything that I have really done that could have caused it. Oh well, I will grit my teeth and thank my lucky stars that there is no bleeding!!!
I am basically useless at the moment. I am so tired that I can barely get anything done around the house, JourneyMan is an absolute godsend at the moment – he has been doing so much and I really appreciate it.
Over the weekend, we took JBB to the Royal Melbourne Show where he had an absolute ball!! There is an animal nursery there where heaps of animals are wandering around to be patted, he thought it was the best thing ever – patting sheep, dogs, pigs, cows, chickens! They also had a Sesame Street stage show on, he absolutely loves Elmo (or Melmo as he calls him) and was transfixed by the show. There were rides everywhere and carnival games, flashing lights and people yelling - he was so overwhelmed by all of the fun things that when we got to the car (we drove some of the way and took the train the rest of the way) he was asleep in 2minutes. It was a really fun day.
