OMG! I must tell you! Last night I had a maternity mat under our bed sheet in case my waters break in bed. Also I thought I'd see if sleeping with a pillow between my knees would help with pelvis pain towards the end of the night. I'm sure I share with most of you the almost complete inability to roll from one side to the other and get out of bed every 1-2 hrs to go to the loo. It seams to be getting worse every night and sometimes I'm stuck on my back like some sort of upside down tortoise! Anyway - it gets worse. Last night because of this stupid maternity mat, my sheets didn't slide around like they normally do to ease my turning and I just couldn't do it. Suddenly the muscle in the back of my right thigh went into excruciating cramp, and as I squirmed to relieve it and move the stupid pillow from between my legs, the same muscle on the left leg followed suit. This was killing me and I was trying to stiffle my desire to scream the house down. With one more wriggle somehow both my front calf muscles went into cramp too at which point I was totally demented, still stuck on my back, and unable to do anything about the four crampled muscles. DH finally woke up and pushed me out of bed where I limped around, asked him to rub the muscles, had to stagger to the bathroom before I wet myself, sat on the loo, still with four cramps, still trying not to scream and shout. Eventually they all went together as I leant forward against the sink. My God, I've never been in so much pain. All I could think of was how am I going to cope giving birth. It probably lasted about 3 minutes and was worse than the induced contractions I felt with DD. Why does it have to get so difficult at the end???
