For the last week I have had a huge massive head ache. I got them very often before I was pregnant, but I could take Excedrin for them and that helped a lot. Now... I can't. I've been getting head aches since I was in elementary school. I remember being in about 4th grade and going to the office and asking for some Excedrin because I had a head ache. The ladies there were shocked I even knew what that was. Come to think of it.... did my mom let me have it that young? I don't know, probably. haha
Then, 6 years ago I was thrown off a 4 wheeler while trying to jump a dune (stupid, stupid, stupid) and messed up my neck and back very badly. I went to a Chiropractor - did nothing for me, so I went to Physical Therapy for 10 months and that seemed to work quite a bit. But then that ended and it got bad again and there was nothing I could do about it because I couldn't afford to get help and I was at school.
I was married for a few months and Jaren had had enough of my whining and crying about how bad my back/neck/head hurt so I started to get massages twice a month. Those helped a teeny bit, but not much. So we found a Chiropractor that does Atlas adjustments and I have been going to him since March of last year. He is great, it has helped, but I can't seem to hold my adjustment. If I exercise, it holds for a very long time... but now that I'm pregnant.... doesn't matter how much I exercise it just wont hold. So, I'm stuck with this horrible head ache that I know can be helped if I get adjusted again. But, I'm so sick of having to go every 2 weeks! It's not the cheapest of things AND we are now paying for a kid. So... it's a little frustrating.
I'm going tomorrow and I'm going to talk to him, but I don' t think he'll tell me anything I don't already know.
I had my monthly check up this morning and I was told I can take Tylenol every 4 hours all day long if I need to. That makes me feel so much better so I'm going to. Baby's heart beat was 146 bpm today and turns out my home scale is way off. I was feeling depressed last night and this morning because according to my scale (which is 2 years old and was probably 20-30 bucks) I have put on 6 pounds. But according to the doc's scale (which is probably hundreds and I'd say is pretty accurate) I've put on 3 pounds. So I left feeling MUCH better about myself. I'm aware the weight will just start piling on in the next few months and that is fine, but I just didn't think I needed a ton in my first trimester since the kid wasn't even an ounce then. I just want a healthy, steady weight gain if I can help it - which I can't. Except I just need to eat well and exercise. That's about all I can do. :)
The appointment is scheduled - June 2nd at 9:00 a.m. we will find out what we are having! I'm so excited I can't stand it.
p.s. the wind is blowing about 50 mph right now. sounds like my house is going to blow down. i'm a little nervous.
