I feel like the biggest whiner ever but honestly, pregnancy is not gentle with me. At this point, I would do just about anything, (besides being un-pregnant), to make this headache go away. Stand on my head? I'll do it. Bury a cows horn at midnight? No prob. Shave my cat Peanut? Done. Sell my firstborn? No way. Carry on headache. Ha.
I have officially this headache from hell for 5 days straight. I cannot function, I cannot eat without feeling sick from the headache, I cannot sleep from the headache, I cannot concentrate on work. I'm not trying to sound ungrateful, I'm really not, but this headache is serious. Maybe that is why it took us so long, maybe it was God's way of saying, "Are you sure...no, but seriously, are you REALLY sure? Because this is NOT going to be smooth sailing. You're sure then? Ok, well...don't say I didn't warn you!"
NOTE: Very important: I am, of course, still obscenely, crazily and supremely happy for our Baby M coming in January, I just wish pregnancy didn't mean me hiding from the light like a vampire (damn light sensitivity) or throwing up in the middle of a restaurant (nausea from the headache) or having to shove my fingers into my eye sockets at work in an attempt to numb the pain. I just wish there was SOMETHING that might make it at least bearable. According to the doctor I can try acupuncture and that's about it since Tylenol does absolutely nothing, so I'm trying to get an appointment ASAP.
This is also the reason for my lack of blogging. The computer screen is basically my worst enemy to my headache, aside from natural light, so since I stare at it all day I try and stay away. I'm sorry for the whining, but I would be lying on my blog if I wrote that I feel like sunshine and roses right now. I honestly want a record of everything, even the not so fun times, so here it is, honest to blog.
In happier news everything came out great with the bloodwork from Baby M's NT scan. YAY! I have scheduled the BIG US for AUGUST 6th. We're so excited to find out. We CANNOT WAIT!!!!!
Here is my quickly taken Week 15 shot. I made Rob do it even though I felt like absolute crap and just wanted to lay with my head on the cold bathroom floor (note the sunglasses, I just could not take them off). Damnit, I'm going to have these pictures, whether my head likes it or not!
And a just for fun picture of Rob and I at the St. Paul Rodeo over 4th of July weekend. His mom gave him this cowboy hat when he moved out to Oregon (she apparently thinks that is what we wear our here) and it was the first time in 4 years he got to wear it!
"Would you like some cheese with that whine?"
ps. Mmmmm.... cheese. Must go find some.
