General Whining

It started as every morning starts. A slight ache in my legs in feet. Normal. Something I had experienced in each of my previous pregnancies.
Then IT happened.
Spasms in both legs and into my feet that left me in tears and scared David (so he's not used to watching his mom roll on the floor hanging onto her legs, crying 'owowowowow' over and over again. What can I say?).
Several hours later and my legs and feet still hurt. All the nurse can tell me is to drink more water (I'm going to float away), take some Tylenol (riiiiiggghhhttt. Can't I just have my epidural now?) and rest (um. that's what I was doing before my legs exploded.)

I'm afraid to go to sleep now. I know what's going to happen. I know it's going to end up with me on the floor in tears.

Well that sucks!
Does potassium help? I'm sure I didn't spell that right.
You give bananas to kids who have growing pain spasms in their legs, would it help you?

Yikes, that's not cool. Wish I could help - I'd at least rub your legs for you, since I don't know what else to do.

Unfortunately, the only cure for me seems to be to give birth. And I'm still here!
But thanks.

Hmm I'm a guy. I get foot cramps almost every evening. I don't have a potassium shortage and I drink a lot of water. Usually its my left foot. Damndest thing. Your legs sound a thousand times worse. And you can't really take anything.
