- red rash on stomach 2-3 times per week
- calf cramps
- leg twitching at night that keeps me awake
- lower back pain (sitting, bending, and sometimes standing)
- how to handle heat when we travel to AZ?
Oddly, the Dr. looked the most concerned about the belly rash. It's probably allergies and I mostly get it when I've been outside gardening in the evening. The calf cramps and leg twitching are likely from anemia, so I get to take an additional iron supplement and if it doesn't clear up in 4 weeks, then I'll get some additional supplements.Time to hit the steak again! And finally, a ticket to physical therapy for the lower back pain since it's just going to get worse.
I feel like a hypochondriac but no, I'm just pregnant. You get lots of ailments but no drugs to treat it. Not cool. I'm already off caffeine, haven't had a single craving for a martini, and I think I've taken a pain reliever maybe twice and I think I cut it in half before I took it.
I have done two bad things: I got my hair highlighted during the first trimester and I used a pressure washer for about 5 minutes before realizing that the noise was way too loud for a fetus with developing ears. I guess do you forget that you are pregnant sometimes!
