Ug. Feeling awful today. I woke up with a super intense headache just above my right eye. I was able to take the edge off with some Tylenol and a nap, but it has persisted all day. I feel fragile and shaky, as if I were having a reaction to the heat, but it isn't very hot today and I have been staying well hydrated.
Luckily, I had an appointment with my midwife at noon, so I got checked out and everything seems fine. My blood pressure — which is the first thing they worry about when you say you have an awful headache — is fine, even a bit low at 118/60. My hydration level was good, though Joyce recommended that I keep drinking constantly, even if I am not thirsty. If it persists tomorrow, I will go back, but if I can sleep it off, I should be fine.
Today has made me very thankful that I have not had a difficult pregnancy so far. If I felt like this every day, there is no way in hell I would ever do this again.
