pregnancy woes

I swear, that everyone I know who is pregnant ( which is actually quite a few) are having issues. Large and small. And I get to include myself in that number. :(

Sunday afternoon I came home from church with a headache. It didn't go away. I tried everything. Not wearing contacts, drinking lots of water, staying in a dark room, rest, tylenol, and more.Nothing was working. It felt like every time I bent over, someone was pounding me in the head.

Last night I decided, that if I woke up with it, I would call the doctor. I woke up with a throbbing head ache and called the appt. line. Luckily I was able to get in with my doctor by 10.

So after a couple of bags of IV fluid, tylenol,a nausea medicine, and a big nap, I am feeling better. I feel "drugged" but ok. The nausea medicine makes you tired and so that isn't helping.

Ben and the kids have been wonderful. Thanks to our neighbor (thank you so much Tara!) who watched Ivan, Ben was able to be there with me. Once the kids got home from school, they were very concerned about me and the baby. Harmony got me a book to read and some gatorade. Ethan made me some soup (he forgot to heat it up the first time)and Connor kept me company by watching Clone Wars next to me.:)Ivan was very concerned about my bandaids. I had to have my blood drawn and they can never find my veins, so they tried 3 times.

It was a long day and I can't wait to go to sleep. Although I have to try and hold out until after The Closer. Thanks to all those who have been concerned.

And to all those other preggo mommies out there, take care of yourselves. After all, "Life is hard enough without having someone kicking you from the inside!"

Marie, hope you don't mind me barging into your blog. I found it on your Facebook thingy. Sorry about your headache. It sucks to have them anyways, but being preggos too. -Dang! Glad to hear that you are in good hands. I still can't believe you are pregnant with your fifth! Take care! Alishia

I hope you continue to feel a little better. Pregnancies are hard on us Momma's. Isn't it nice to have the support of your family and neighbors. I have been so blessed to feel very supported.
