So Tired!

I am just absolutely exhausted! But the past few days have been very productive, so it's worth it. Saturday, I slept in, had lunch with T, went shopping for a bit, then went home. Realized that the shoes I purchased while we were out was not going to work at all. So I went out again by myself and returned the shoes and went on a quest to buy decent, warm, non-slip, FLAT boots. I finally found a decent pair that was on sale at Penneys. That trip drained me completely. I of course was parked nowhere near Penneys and had to do a lot of walking. By the time I got home, my thighs were aching.

On Sunday, we had lunch then I went food shopping by myself. I really like going alone. I usually dawddle and this drives T nuts. I took forever as usual, and by the time I was done, I was just ready to pass out. Good thing that my favorite supermarket has a free service where they will load the groceries in your car. All you have to do is pull up the front and give them your ticket.

Today was another productive day. After work, I came home and surfed a bit. Then made dinner, and then made a pineapple upside down cake for T. Its too late to try a piece now, but I'll pack some for him to take to work tomorrow. It smelled so good, I might try a *little* piece (I hate pineapple).

Now I'm tired once again. Both feet cramped up on me. Good thing not at the same time, but it still sucked. I take warm showers before I go to bed and this has helped A LOT with the horrible leg cramps I used to get (doc called them Charlie Horse?) The foot cramps really hurt (tho not as bad as the leg cramps. Those were HORRIBLE). The muscle cramps up right at the arch of my foot and any movement just makes it worse.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to prevent this from happening? Or this is normal and I'm doomed to have cramps until the baby comes?

Oh! I did stitch this weekend. But I worked on my model, so I can't show any pics.

You may have the cramps throughout the remainder of your pregnancy. :( Are you getting enough water? It may help to increase the amount you're drinking.

No advice, but look after yourself, and I hope the cramps disappear soon.

I got those cramps too, they were really bad whenever i stretch. I do agree that drinking alot of water will help, Also sleeping with a pillow in between your legs, this will also help align your spine, and always elevate your legs. And I also find that sleeping in a firm bed helps alot! =)
