I have Restless Leg Syndrome. I’m lucky enough to have it not only when I’m pregnant but all of the time. It comes and goes. I don’t have it every day or even every week. I probably even can go a month without it bothering me. However, when I’m pregnant, it’s worse. I have it a lot more. With Jaden, I dreaded going to bed it was so bad. I would stay up until 2am just so I could go a few hours without laying in bed being tortured. It was miserable!
I have it this time as well, but I’m managing. I’ve noticed that if I miss my vitamin for 3 days, I definitely get it. It doesn’t seem to bother me as much if I keep up on my vitamins. Last night, I was reading up about it and it mentioned that people with RLS often have cold feet as well and that socks may help. Last night, I slept with socks and slept the best I’ve slept in a week! I have also been consistent with my vitamins for the last few days too.
I’m not sure if any of them are related, but I’m keeping them up!!
Also, in 4 weeks, on December 9th, we get to find out if it’s a boy or a girl. I’m still thinking boy but have this sinking feeling that all of this boy stuff that I already have is going to be a waste and I’m going to have to start all over with girl stuff. That is really the main reason that I want a boy. The seasons and sizes will all be right for a boy and I don’t want to have to start all over for a girl and figure out whether to keep or get rid of the boy stuff. In 4 more weeks, we’ll know though!
