How a Charley Horse will ruin your day

I knew going into this that pregnancy was going to have its challenges.  And I'm usually in better spirits.  Maybe?  But I feel like every step of the way has been more difficult than need be.  I am not a graceful sufferer!  Maybe every pregnancy is this hard and everyone else just sucks it up better than I do?  Probably.

I'm getting to the end of my rope with everything!  The morning sickness, fatigue, 2 infections, a cyst on my eyeball, insomnia, back pain, diabetes....our pet's heads are falling off!!! I test my blood sugar 4 times per day and am struggling with hypoglycemia.  I force feed myself all day long trying to get the right amount of carbs and protein.  I am tired.  I am frustrated.  I hate food now (if you know me then you know something is seriously wrong when I say this!) I'm still 10lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight.

Enter in a 5am wake up call with a painful charley horse.  What a small thing to break the camel's back...

I am done!  I have had it!  I quit!

If you tell me I have 9 weeks left of this I will literally crumple up into a weeping mess.


  1. Hang in there. When you hold your sweet baby for the first time and feel a love you have never imagined possible it will all be worth it, i promise. And pregnancy charley horses are the worst thing ever....aghhhhhh.

  2. Have Luke ask Shaun and Shane how much fun there wives are during pregnancy. We may act pleasant in public but I assure you at home it is a totally different story ;) it can be brutal sometimes, I am sorry!! But I agree with Amy once you hold your baby you forget, it's the only way to explain how women have multiple children. Hang in there!

  3. I'm so sorry, Whitters! Everyone says you forget just how bad pregnancy is after the baby comes but that sounds pretty dang unforgettable. I'm sending all my positive vibes your way!
