Since 13 weeks I've been having horrible headaches. They happen maybe twice a week, and when they do, I can barely function. Taking Tylenol helps sometimes, but other times, the only thing I can do to alleviate the pain is go to sleep :(
My pregnancy books say that headaches starting in the 2nd Trimester are normal, but I am a bit concerned. What I'm experiencing seems a bit excessive. The ladies on the board have recommended drinking some caffeine when I start feeling one coming on, which I will definitely try the next time it happens. I'm planning on mentioning them to my OB at my next appointment on Monday, too.
M's mom came to visit last week and we had such a great time! She insisted on cooking and cleaning for us; it was so nice to have a break. We went to Babies R Us and the Baby Depot in Burlington Coat Factory to look at baby things for the first time. I am so overwhelmed. There are a gazillion cribs, strollers, car seats, etc. Help? Please?
The last thing we did was buy some knitting supplies. I've been having this urge to make something for baby, and thought the most practical thing would be to learn knitting. She taught me the basics and I tried, but I guess it's safe to say I'm not a natural. I am about halfway through what I guess could be a washcloth:
I was going to attempt a blanket next, but I think I will take my time perfecting my "skills" first...
