Chris and I woke up at the same time, in different rooms, this morning.
Him because his alarm went off, me because I feel like shit. My head aches, my eyes hurt, and I’m having those vaguely sickening menstrual-esque cramps — you know, the unrelenting soreness that lets you know your period’s about to start (and in my case, makes me gassy too)? Similar to the ones I had wayyy back at the beginning of my pregnancy where I thought for sure my period was going to set in… and then hoped desperately that it didn’t.
No more pink-tinged goo, although last night I attended a La Leche League meeting and for the last half hour or so of that, then the drive home and for two hours after, I was experiencing those “cervical cramps” I’ve had since Monday. I wish I had a better way to describe them — they’re uncomfortable, sharp twinges that are over way too quickly to be “painful”, but sometimes startle me nonetheless.
I wish we had more than one heating pad, so I could put one on my back and one on my lower abdomen. I’m antsy wondering if this achiness is going to get worse and develop into you-know-what. I took an ibuprofen, although I didn’t really want to lessen the feelings in my abdomen, but my head just hurts so badly. I only laid down at 1am, so I’ve gotten 3 hours of sleep. Hoping I can squeeze in some more relatively soon…
