Hi, my name is Loosy Goosy. I'm super loose, unstable, but so much fun!
I pop when I walk, sometimes my left leg goes numb in mid-walk, if I shift positions while I'm standing I can feel my hips go pop-pop-pop. And even sometimes I feel like I'm just going to fall out of place.
Being loosy goosy is SO much fun let me tell ya.
Haha - no, in all seriousness, I can tell my body is just revving up for the big event. The numbness thing has only started happening in the last 2 days and its insane! I think the baby pushes against a nerve or something and WHAM numbness. Last night I was walking across the kitchen floor and my leg nerve got pinched and went numb and I totally lunged forward almost falling. It's kinda painful too.
I've started taking an herb blend called Dr. Christopher's "Birth Prep". It's an herbal blend that is supposed to help things relax and loosen up down there, thus making birth easier. I've only been taking it for one day and so I'm pretty sure that is not the reason why I'm so loose (I've been loose for several weeks), but I can only imagine that things will get more relaxed from here on out.
I imagine myself running, and my legs falling off. LOL that is how I feel.
