Last night was incredibly rough. As mentioned before I'm dealing with some painful headaches and last night was no exception. I woke in the middle of the night with a bad one. I could feel it not only in my head but in my neck. I popped a few pills and slapped a hot washcloth on my head and thought I'd get right back to sleep. Negative. On top of the awesome headache I also had a sudden case of insomnia. I was wide awake. So I did what most insomniacs do, I tinkered on the Internet. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, just trying to occupy myself while everyone else slept. Once the medicine kicked in and the pain started to lessen I managed to fall back asleep to some really, really weird dreams. The hubs always laughs and rolls his eyes when I say this but they do say vivid dreams are a side effect of pregnancy...http://www.webmd.com/baby/features/vivid-dreams-of-pregnant-women. So, the hubs can laugh all he wants but if it's on the internet it must be true, right?! ;)
This morning the headache was back in full force and to be honest, I just feel "blah" all over. Definitely not myself. Just to be safe I went to a local pharmacy to use their blood pressure machine to make sure it wasn't anything serious. I'm relieved to say my blood pressure came back as 119/80. I feel much better knowing.
Last but not least...today is my last day of work. I'm officially on maternity leave until I feel well enough to return. I'm blessed to have such a supportive employer!
