, sorry to hear about the headaches. I had them super bad (like, in the ER begging for meds) w/ my DD's pg and have had them fairly regularly this pg. This pg, the only thing that is helping me is my chiropractor- seriously, she does WONDERS for me. I get migraines when not pg sometimes and take Fioricet for them- it has worked really well for me non-pg. I tried it for one of the headaches this pg and it didn't help it one bit.
I it helps you. hope you find some relief, headaches are such a drag.
I hear you on being disappointed on taking so many meds (that's why I held out for weeks before I took the anti-emetics). I feel the same way. What helps me is to realize that the benefit I'm getting from the meds (ie- eating or not being in pain) is huge for the babies. It is hard, tho, isn't it?
oh, and I'm not Nanette, but re: BP cuff- you should totally request manual if the machine reading isn't great. The machines can be way off sometimes. W/ my last pg (the BP nightmare), we went to only manual reads bc the machine would read all over the place.
I LOVE Liora for a g name- TBH, I thought it was your name and I was jealous bc I've always thought it was pretty. I actually like Liora Grace a lot... Lucas and Asher are both fantastic boy names (see my list). Tho, Isla and Boston are a really great pair. You can't go wrong Nanette
- sorry you are sick. I've always thought pg women should get a pass on being sick until... the baby goes to college or something
Hope you feel better soon. Love your names! Cassie has such a great story and I just love Cael.
I'm funny about posting names, but I'm going to do it bc I just can't not share, too
For a girl we have:
Eden Sophia Elise (or Eden Elise Sophia)
Eden bc, when I dream or meditate on the babies, I always see a beautiful garden in a river valley. Which makes the name fit most perfectly with our boy choice; Vale (a river valley)
Sophia is DH's all time favorite name bc of the meaning. I like it okay, but our other kiddos have very unique names and it didn't feel right to match the uber-popular Sophia with three unique names.
Elise- this is probably the best story. My grandmother had twins that died at birth. Their mns were Elise and Louise. My DD's mn is Louise, so Elise is an obvious choice
Boys we have, in this order: (as in the babe we know is a boy is Vale, and should the other be a boy, he's Asher)
(meaning as above) also, my grandfather's name was Gale, and this somehow feels like a tribute name, even tho I didn't intend it to be.
oh, Asher. I've always loved Asher. DS was *almost* Asher. DD would have been Asher if she had been a boy. I'm not sure why I feel pulled to use Vale instead, but I do and I feel like that's important.
we're having a problem w/ mns for boys. I'd really, really like to do Vale Asher, but our ln starts w/ a J and, online at least (I'm not sharing IRL), some people have thought the initials VAJ might be a problem. IDK. DH strongly feels like it would be no big deal at all, and I'm still on the fence. If it were any other name, I'd look for something less questionable, but Vale Asher just seems
like my son's name... (before you suggest it, DH is very strongly against using mn as common name, so that rules out Asher Vale, called Vale) sigh. Names are hard.
We're waiting to make the Vale Asher vs Vale something else choice until we see if we have one or two boys. The good thing is, even tho I really have a preference for b/g babies- if we end up w/ two boys, it solves ALL my name problems!
