Sleep: pretty good!
Symptoms: Last week out of nowhere in the middle of the night I woke up with a charley horse. Can you say OUCH?! Holy hell, never had one of those before. The crazy thing is my friend Amy literally texted me the next day asking if I had gotten one. Too weird.

  4. You are glowing, positively RADIANT. And you have really "popped" -- someone asked me just this weekend when I felt I did the same, and I said 22/23 weeks. Now, tell me about those amazing white jeans ... are they maternity?! With maybe only about 2 or so weeks left of my pregnancy, I'm soooo not "needing" white jeans, but I would love some!

  5. Oh yes, and I agree with Jillian -- I find that on days that I eat a banana, no charley horses. It could be purely coincidental and an old wives tale, but it's worth a banana a day to try to stave them off :) They are the worst. Also, if I feel one coming on, I've found that if I flex my foot hard, it helps to counteract it. Not fun.

  16. Charley horses are the wooorst. Eat foods high in potassium and calcium to avoid more of them!

  19. That growth spurt hit us hard! Baby and I slept for like a week straight trying to get through it :-)

  20. I second (er, third) the banana recommendation. Through both my pregnancies, I always found that plenty of water helped avoid cramping as well. :)

    New reader BTW... love your blog. Stumbled upon it from another I read (love it when that happens!) :)

  24. Ah so cute Laura! Those charlie horses are the worst. I got them a lot with Mila I remember...not as much with Phoenix. So odd how every pregnancy is different!

  25. Loving your Easter outfit! You look gorgeous! And Yikes on those charlie horses! That does not sound pleasant! I'm just now starting to get heartburn, I pray charlie horses aren't next! Good luck with your Glucose Testing! Hope everything goes well! <3
