I have been having bad tummy aches of late. Maybe coz the baby has turned and is pressing down on my bowels or kicking my stomach most of the time!
So anyways, a bad tummy ache brought me upstairs last night at 9.45 pm, ignoring boyboy's plea for me to play with him and ignoring hubby's looks at me and what is happening!
Went to the toilet and sat there for a while.
Some 20 min later, I crawled to bed. But I was too uncomfortable. My feet and hands were beginning to swell up. It felt like my skin could not contain whatever it was that was making it swell.
I tried to ignore it, like I was ignoring everything else that night, but it kept sleep at bay.
In the end, I whispered to hubby if he was awake? We usually try to keep quiet so that boyboy gets so bored he will fall asleep on his own.
Hubby was. So, I told him about my swelling limb-ends and my aching tummy (not to mention my aching back and the endless pressure on my anus!).
Got him to go downstairs and get me some pillows to elevate my legs.
And just when hubby came upstairs, we heard a small voice asking "Daddy, I want milk please!"
Sigh....and down daddy goes for his milk.
And when he was done, down Daddy went again to clean up his bottle.
And last night, I went to toilet 5 times and Christopher woke up 3 times.
Just a little action, I said....but yeah, the swelling has begun!
