The highlight of my 2nd trimester was definitely the 3-4 straight days of literal physical torture. Severe body pain. Muscle fatigue. My limbs were so hard to move, it felt like I’ve been doing extreme workout for days. The sole of my feet were sensitive to the touch, I could barely walk. My bones and joints were numb and painful– I thought I had arthritis. Literally every time I make a step, the sole of my foot hurts so much. Moreover, I got really bad leg cramps during these months. Every night, the pain in my legs and back would wake me up at night. I also got really terrible, creepy, and violent dreams during this time.
