We were on vacation this week about 3 hours from home. The morning it was time to drive home, I woke up with a severe muscle spasm in my calf. Thank God it was my left leg and not my right, so I could still drive. My husband was riding the motorcycle, and I was in the car with our 15 month old son. We stopped at every rest area (about 1/2 an hour apart) so I could stretch, but it didn't seem to help an awful lot.
I had trouble sleeping last night because of the pain, and when I got up it was as bad as it had been when I did it in the first place.
Do you moms have any tricks for easing the pain? Hot water bottle? Taking a walk? I could really use some help with this one....Btw, 8 mos. pregnant and getting out of breath easily. I've also had a few fainting spells, so long walks are out, but a short one I could manage....Thanks!!
