upcoming u/s

My next u/s is Friday may 15th so about a week away now.Everything is going well here.Still adjusting to the idea that I am actually pg.But since my tummy has swollen to new proportions it is hard to not have reality set in.I finally picked up a couple of new bras that were a whole cup size bigger this week as I was bulging out of the others.I did not think all the swelling and bloating would happen so soon.But I guess everyone is different.The cramping has settled down a lot.The new thing I have been experiencing is headaches.Long lingering headaches that Tylenol doesn't touch.Actually Tylenol has never worked for me so why should it now.Does anyone know any safe treatment of headaches like home remedies while you are pg? My last headache lasted for three days I would go to sleep with and wake up with it daily. Also does anyone have any book recommendations?I did pick up "what to expect when you are expecting" like my RE recommend but are there any other good ones.All of this is new to me as I never made it this far before in my earlier pg's.And even up to the same point I never had any symptoms only a BFP on a stick.I never had the blood tests, never saw the heartbeat, they just didn't watch me that close. This has been my first u/s ever that I have seen the baby that I am carrying as the only one I had before was during one of my mc's.Everything about this pg is different but I think that is good even if I can't fit into anything I own and have been experiencing some nausea and throwing up.It may sound strange but some of these not so fun symptoms are comforting as they let me know that things are progressing and the baby is doing well.I am excited for my upcoming u/s as we will be released if it goes well to my OBGYN.Well girls I should go as we are getting up early to go to yard sales and find some much needed things for the baby.I didn't think I was gonna ever have another baby to raise so we have some bargain hunting to do because if we don't find stuff now it will be winter when the baby comes.And there are no yard sales in the late fall winter time.So we are trying to plan ahead so we can try to afford everything.Well God bless and sorry I have been a bad blogger lately but the headaches keep me down and away from the computer.

The only relief I've found for headaches is to lay down and put a warm washcloth over my eyes. It's more of a temporary relief, but at least it's something. I think you can buy something at Bed, Bath and Beyond that stays warmer longer than a washcloth. I've also heard that a cool washcloth helps as well. Can't wait to hear about your ultrasound!

YAY! :)

About the books, I'm a librarian and I really dont care for "What to expect..." A great, great book is "The Thinking Woman's Guide to Birth". It's a great read. It's a different format that WTE (which is okay in that you can quickly find an answer to a question) but it isnt the book I first recommend to patrons.

I have a whole shelf in my home library. I'd be happy to email you the titles.

Sending big vibes and happy thoughts for tomorrow and for your upcoming u/s! :)

I too am LOVING the yard sales. I have used a cold pack or a heating pad on my head, both have helped on different ocassions. Also rubbing my head and the top of my nose seem to help. Hate to tell you this, but mine got MUCH worse in the 2nd trimester. Much much worse.

I know you didn't forget silly! I totally understand the headaches - I suffer from migraines occassionally too! I am glad you are feeling yucky though - that is a good sign! LOL

I can't wait for the u/s on Friday! I hope you had a great time going to yard sales - I LOVE bargain shopping!

Thank you for being so sweet! Big hugs!

thanks for updating!! my suggestion for headaches is caffeine. i started having them shortly after my bfp, and the doc said to drink a pop right away. that usually helps. sometimes i take reg. strength tylonel. unfortunatley, i just had to deal sometimes. i agree with tiffany, mine have been worse since joining the second tri.

cant wait for your ultrasound!
