Rough Day

Today has been so rough! I had an appointment at 9:00 AM. At 8, Lance came to bed ready to crash -as he’d taken some Tylenol PM. Ouch! I scrambled and had my in-laws (THANK YOU!) watch the girls. It wasn’t super easy for them, because I thought I’d only be an hour.

I’d woken up with a particularly bad migraine and once at the Dr. office, it got a lot worse. Down a pound, great (water weight, gotta love it), dilated to 1 ½ cm and am 60% effaced. They gave me the little cocktail for headaches (don’t remember the drug names exactly) by shot. I had to be observed afterward, so the appointment ran long. After I got the girls home I was a mess. I still functioned and got the girls taken care of, however, the drive to care for the kiddos was scrambled at best. Gratefully Mia had her nap and Ella was pretty good about playing outside. After Lance got up and I went back into function mode again, I started to lose it after dinner. I was -and am still overwhelmingly tired.

I had a sugar crash to top the evening off and just feel shaky and weird all over. Gratefully the pain in my head has subsided and I seem to be okay. …Here’s hopin’ for a better tomorrow, eh?

Sleep it off and hopefully tomorrow will be wonderful! And how exciting is hearing that you're making progress toward having the baby?! Woohoo!

Oh, man! Seriously, remember to take care of yourself. You can't take care of everyone else if you are in a coma!
