My New Friend Charlie

This weekend we had a lot going on.  Saturday, especially, was a busy day for us, so it was so nice to hit the hay finally at around 10pm or so.  I have to say that even though I was not in my own bed, I was sleeping rather soundly, until approximately 3am.  That was when I SHOT up out of my much needed slumber and started screaming in pain!!!  I know that I scared the crap out of Jason, he must have thought that I was going into labor, or that something was wrong with Gwen and I.  Nope... just a good ole Charlie Horse! Ugh!  I know that I have had Charlie Horses before in my life, but THIS was intense!!!  It lasted a good minute or so, and is still tight (2 days later), before I was able to flex and massage it back to normal.  Boy, oh boy, was I caught off guard.  I don't even remember the last time that I had one, but I hope that there is a 10 year span between this visit from Charlie and my next. Lol. 

After I got home, of course I started researching Charlie Horses and Pregnancy, and there it was under Causes: Pregnancy.  Just lovely :)  Right away I began searching for ways to prevent them, and if you know me at all, I am taking ALL precautions!!!  I do not need something like that attacking me in my sleep... especially when a good night sleep is what I need now, before the baby comes. 

Hoping peaceful nights are ahead...
Lots of love.
