Headaches

I felt like I was getting a little sick on Thursday night, but just passed it off on exhaustion. However, sleep did not come at all that night because of a headache. I'm not one that normally takes medication for headaches (not sure why...but I don't), but when 5:30 rolled around and I still was awake and in pain I made Dan get up and find me some (I know, wasn't it nice that I made Dan do it, but in my defense, his alarm had just gone off so he was awake...sort of). Anyway, the IBprofin did nothing what-so-ever, and all day the headache got worse and worse. I finally got a little worried about it and called my doctor to see if it was normal, or if I could take something different for it. Turns out I'm not supposed to take IBprofin while pregnant...oops. Tylenol is supposedly what you can take. Yikes...good thing I don't take medication often. Anyway, Dan came home from school earlier than normal because I started crying on the phone on him. He took the kids and I tried to sleep. Oh, it turns out the doctor said I had a tension headache, and I would just like to say, "If this is anything at all similar to those headaches you get if they mess up your epidural, I am so sorry for all of you who have ever experienced that." My poor kids were neglected while I tried not to move my head at all. Anyway, Dan is amazing and the kids were understanding. Kember kept trying to help with my ice (veggie) pack and heating (rice) bag. It hurt more to have her help, but she did try! :)
Kember also met with her teacher yesterday. We are both very excited that she is going to school, and meeting the teacher Kember kept showing off. It was really cute.

I'm so sorry! Being pregnant isn't always the greatest, and then having a horrible headache on top of that just takes the cake. Dan is awesome for helping you so much with everything. I don't take medicine for anything either... Jeff thinks I'm weird for just putting up with the pain. I hope you feel better soon!

Glad you had those frozen vegies to help. Were they a kind you like to eat?

Sorry about the pain--hope you're feeling better today. Guess I'll find out when I call you back in a minute. :)

I hope your headache is gone. Poor thing. :( It's not fun to try and take care of kids when you're feeling awful.
How exciting that Kember will be going to school! I thought about putting Joey in pre-school here, but decided to save the $90 and wait til next year.

I'm sorry, tension headaches are the worst, and having a little baby in your belly can't make it any easier (what with not being able to take most meds). I hope they go away soon.
By the way, you've been tagged.

I didn't know you were pregnant again! Congratulations! (This is what I get for losing the address for you blog and not staying posted). One of these days I will definitely have to come up and see you (Khirsta may think I'm coming to visit her, but you'll know the truth) ;) Any rate, I mainly wanted to comment to say congrats, and to tell you I love your blog photo - girl, you look gorgeous! I hope I still look like that after a few babies. :) We'll find out sometime in the near future I guess. Love you!
