Inching closer toward our dream
I have been struggling with these migraines for about 6 weeks now. I get the headaches every day and every afternoon, I am pretty much useless for awhile, sometimes the rest of the day depending on how bad it is. I cant look at the TV, computer, read a book, nothing until it passes. Its very frustrating. A solution has been offered though and so hopefully by my next update they will no longer be an issue. The heat has not been helping and I know I complain about it a lot. I never really cared about the heat before. But when you are stuck inside all day and cant go anywhere, it would be nice to be able to get some fresh air in the back yard, its just not a possibility for me at this point. I am praying for cooler weather soon.
In terms of my restrictions on what I can and cant do, the doctors still want me to take it easy. So far so good, lets not mess anything up by overdoing it. I try to keep my feet up most of the day and I really need to start getting in the pool and doing some leg exercises at night. My knees are really sore to bend and my feet feel like I have been at Disneyland all day. I think my muscles are just stiff. My hands still hurt but its tolerable. Its all tolerable actually except the headaches. All in all I would say I am doing very well considering I have three new lives growing inside me! Every once in a while I get out of the house for short periods of time and that helps.
We have a lot of exciting events coming up! This weekend I am having some maternity photos taken. I am looking forward to capturing some decent pics of myself and Tommy, and my belly. I am getting my hair done and am also excited just to feel a little prettier than recently. It will be nice to be able to show off my stomach and not have to be self conscious about it (for once). :-). Then, the next weekend is my baby shower. I don't have to go into how excited I am for that because I already did. The closer we get, the more excited I become. I cant wait to see everyone!
We will be announcing the names in the next few days so stay tuned. I will also try to add some of the maternity pics if possible. I am not sure how long those take. Tommy and I have dreamed of this moment right now our whole lives, long before we ever knew each other. Our dream came true when we met each other and now the rest of our dreams are falling into place. Our very own family. Every week we get closer and despite the aches and pains and worry that comes along with pregnancy, I cant even describe how happy I am.
PS. The babies are moving all the time now and I am loving it!
