For the last week of so, I have had a really bad headache... no, I'm lying. I've had really bad migraines that have had me begging my neighbor to use her construction worker husband's drill on my temple while she held my hair back so I could barf...
After finally throwing up in front of my family doctor, he prescribed the only medication he's comfortable giving pregnant women... Tylenol 2 with codeine. I am allowed one a day, so I've been taking them before bed with some gravol so I can possibly get some sleep.
Today my doctor called me all excited sounding because he found out that some migraine sufferers react badly to pregnancy hormones and get MORE migraines than usual, and that there's really not a lot to be done.
Not to be a complete debbie downer, I also wanted to share that after fighting with my endocrinologist for MONTHS, I finally have my Animas insulin pump!!!! This thing is amazing! No more will I be giving myself 8 needles a day! No more concerns about highs that I can't treat without yet another needle, and no more forgetting to check my sugar two hours after a shot because it has an alarm built in!!! This one is also waterproof, and has a really tiny adjustable doseage amount (0.025units!!) which means I can super fine tune my insulin from now on.
I am super excited with it, and love that it's waterproof, so I don't have to disconnect from my medication while I'm taking a shower or going swimming. My daughter even seems cool with it, which is great, because she used to get really upset when I had to take a needle.
Woo for hormones that only require a "shot" every 2 days instead of 8 times a day... :D
Anyone else out there having migraine/hormone issues?
