I am feeling fine, except for pain in my right leg which started as a slight muscle strain on Sunday. But now, I have a hard time walking, let alone go up and down the stairs. Not sure if it is pregnancy related, but I’ve read that it could be DVT or deep vein thrombosis – which is kind of serious. I may just be reading too much… But then the article I found appeared on the symptoms list for 8th week in one of my pregnancy apps.
I even woke up at 3 am this morning because of the unbearable pain. Tried for some time to find the right pain-free position so I could go back to sleep. Because of that, we decided to inform our OB first thing in the morning about this.
I really hope it is nothing serious. My OB recommends that I see a varicose vein specialist so I am seeing one tomorrow.
