AHH the cramps, ugh

My cramps are not nice. They arent especially painful, like a 4 on a scale to 10, but I'm doing these weird positions to relieve the pain. I was doggy style holding a pillow and I had my SO come from behind and just push on my back n that felt so great. walking helps too. We're going to the mall in 30 minutes or so and we're going to have lunch and walk around. I think cramps mean I'm dilating more, but I'm not sure. (I just realized I've been spelling dilating wrong my whole life, lol) This isn't a question, just a miny rant or something. Just wanted some mommy talk/support.

  • I think that walking does usually help. If not, come home and take a long shower/bath.
    While you're out, keep drinking water, having healthy snacks...
    It will be nice to be distracted! ;-)
