bad leg cramps

Woke up today with frequent leg cramps. Best thing Boy is around.How glad I am.

Shouted for him & he came macam superman rescuing the victim.lol

Probably I’ve been drinking coke this few days.Yes, craving for sweet & cold drinks.Heh!

Read up somewhere that best thing that we dont drink anything with caffiene in it. Ahhhh that’s why lah kan.

*gasp*

Naughty ah mummy nie, kan dah kena!

But leg cramps often occur during the 3rd trimester of pregnancy. No one knows exactly why these leg cramps happen — some doctors think that it’s the added weight causing fatigue or it may be caused by pressure on your nerves and blood vessels from the growing baby. The leg cramps are not caused by any kind of vitamin or mineral deficiency and they aren’t a signal that you need more calcium.Although leg cramps often occur at night, there are lots of things you can do during the day to prevent them.
 

How to prevent?

Step 1

Exercise, walking and swimming are both recommended exercises for pregnant women and may help to reduce leg cramps. Keep moving and avoid staying in any one position too long.

Step 2

Drink plenty of fluids and stay hydrated to avoid leg cramps. Avoid caffeine and drinks high in sugar or sodium. Try water, herbal teas or club soda with fresh lemon or lime.

Use heat to relax your muscles before bedtime. Try a relaxing warm bath, use a heating pad or hot towels wrapped around your legs.

Step 4

Elevate your legs to help with circulation and blood flow. Take breaks during the day to put your feet up and rest. Rotate your ankles and wiggle your toes whenever you are seated.

Step 5

Wear support hose if you have to stand for long periods of time. Make sure you’re wearing comfortable low-heeled shoes or flats and don’t sit with your legs crossed.

Step 6

Avoid getting too tired or fatigued. Nap if you can and lie on your left side to help improve circulation to and from your legs.

Step 7

Gently stretch your leg muscles before bedtime. Straighten your legs and flex your feet, but avoid pointing them. Massage your legs — or better yet, have your partner massage your legs.

3rd trimester begun……..tick tock tick tock


Week 29 – Carpal tunnel syndrome

My wrists started hurting me during my Week 25, been in much pain especially every morning when I woke up nowadays.

Boy being boy, he googled (i very whiny mah!) and found that the reasons for my painful wrists.

http://www.babycenter.com/0_carpal-tunnel-syndrome-during-pregnancy_234.bc?showAll=true

Why am I having tingling and numbness in my hands during pregnancy?

These sensations are most likely caused by carpal tunnel syndrome. Although you probably associate this condition with people whose jobs require repetitive hand movements (such as data processors, computer programmers, and assembly-line workers), it’s also more prevalent in pregnant women.

Symptoms may include numbness, tingling, burning, pain, or a dull ache in the fingers, hand, wrist, and even up the arm to the shoulder. In severe chronic cases, your hand may feel clumsy or weak.

Symptoms usually affect both hands and can appear at any time, but they’re more likely to begin or worsen in the second half of pregnancy when women tend to retain more fluid. The symptoms usually go away gradually after you give birth, as the swelling from pregnancy subsides.

What causes carpal tunnel syndrome during pregnancy?

The carpal tunnel is a bony canal formed by the wrist bones on three sides and a ligament that runs across the wrist on the other. The swelling and fluid retention that’s so common during pregnancy can increase the pressure in this relatively narrow and inflexible space, compressing the median nerve that runs through it.

The median nerve gives sensation to the thumb and the index, middle, and half of the ring finger and is responsible for movement of a muscle at the base of the thumb. Pressure on this nerve is what causes the symptoms.

What can I do to relieve the pain?


If possible, avoid any activity that requires forceful, repetitive hand movements. Although these movements may not have caused your carpal tunnel syndrome, they can make your symptoms worse.

If your job requires this kind of movement and you must continue it, consider wearing wrist or hand braces while you work.

If you’re working at a computer, adjust the height of your chair so your wrists aren’t bent downward as you type. Using a special ergonomic keyboard can help in some cases. Remember to take breaks to stretch your hands.

If your symptoms bother you at night, shift your sleeping position and try to prop up your arm with a pillow or two when you feel the twinges. Avoid sleeping on your hands. If you wake up with pain, try shaking your hands until the pain or numbness goes away.

If you have a lot of discomfort at night, try stabilizing your wrist in a neutral position (not bent) with a splint or brace. A neutral position allows the carpal tunnel to be slightly wider.

Practicing yoga can help relieve the pain and increase hand strength. You may have heard that taking extra vitamin B6 can help, but two small clinical trials have shown no immediate benefit from this treatment.

When should I call my healthcare provider?


Consult your provider if the pain and numbness interfere with your sleep or daily routine and before taking any pain medication. Your provider may suggest wearing a wrist splint or hand brace, a treatment that has helped many with carpal tunnel syndrome.

If your symptoms are constant and severe — constant numbness, muscle weakness, or loss of sensation — you’ll be referred to a specialist for treatment.

Carpal tunnel syndrome may gradually resolve on its own after delivery. If symptoms persist after your baby is born, be sure to mention it to your healthcare provider at your postpartum visits so she can refer you to an orthopedist if necessary. The specialist may first suggest splinting and taking anti-inflammatory medication, such as ibuprofen.

If these conservative treatments don’t help, the next step might be to get injections of cortisone. In severe cases, a simple surgery may be necessary to relieve the pressure on your median nerve.

After reading up the above info, it says that its normal to experience during your pregnancy.

Actually I never heard about wrists pain during pregnancy. Didn’t realized that my cousin & few of my friends did encountered till delivery too. Ouch!

And here we go, lets welcome the whining carpal tunnel syndrome.

Endure endure endure…. few more few weeks to go!
