Hmmm... I was pretty prepared for "morning sickness," but I never knew headaches and migraines were a part of this deal. I've been getting these for weeks now. I've talked to my doctor and the nurses about this several times and they say it's just from all the hormones. I've also heard this means it's a girl... we'll see. Some people experience this and others don't. I haven't been able to do much, because my head always hurts so bad. This is where I get to brag on Chris. :) He is amazing! He checks on me throughout the day and as soon as he gets home he takes care of me.

Now, I'll admit I don't have the highest pain tolerance, but these migraines can get really bad. Last Sunday one started and by Monday afternoon it was just getting worse. I had been calling my mom and Chris all day letting them know that it wasn't getting better. My doctor called in a prescription for me to take that would stop the nausea and hopefully make me fall asleep. It did, but then when I woke up it was even worse. Now, this is how we know it's bad... the season finale of the Bachelorette was on and I couldn't even watch it! (That's how I rate my pain scale.) So Chris drove me to Allen Presby where my mom and my friend, Ashley, met us. My doctor said earlier that day that if it still didn't get better, I could go get a shot. We got there at about 9:45. Finally, they gave me the shot and it was almost instant... I finally felt better. We left there at about 3:30 am! I'm not sure about everyone else, but to me it was soooo worth the wait. They also gave me a different prescription for the pain that I can take before the headaches turn into migraines.

Now that I felt better, I was hungry. So, my mom, Ashley, and I went on an adventure to Waffle House. If you've ever been to a Waffle House at 3:30 in the morning, you'll understand why this was an adventure. We ate quickly and made it out safely...
