A right pain (in the left leg)

Hayley has been experiencing a worrying numbness in the top of her left leg, which last night was a little worse. This, on top of the nausea, contributed to a pretty poor night’s sleep. So this morning she asked me to call in sick for her.

Later she was able to see the doctor – my regular GP in fact - and he put her mind at rest, though without offering any sort of remedy. About par for the course it seems for most pregnancy ills: it's a case of grin and bear it. Or, more likely, grimace frustratedly and rant in a hormone-induced rage before bursting into tears. Just kidding. Sorry. :)

Actually there's been very little of that so far. I shouldn't tempt fate!
