Ok ladies, I just need to vent here. Feel free to make this a venting thread if you want...I'll be surprised if I'm the only one who needs it.<br><br>
I got a nasty sinus headache yesterday (the kind that goes all the way into your neck and shoulders too) and usually when I get these, I take Aleve and Sudafed together and that helps. But of course I don't want to take anything that strong right now so I'm taking nothing. It hurt all night and it still hurts today. On top of that, I'm having mood swings and I can't stop crying (for no reason!), I'm queasy...having food aversions, and my headache gets worse the more I get up and move around. I need to go grocery shopping, vacuum, do the laundry, and walk my dog! My DH can't help because he had to work today and it's bad enough that I'm going to have to ask him to stop by the store today after work and get groceries when he already had to leave for work at 5:30 am. Aaaaaahhhh!

Sorry you had a bad day, mama. I know the feeling. I"ve already had a few of those and we're only a few weeks along! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> One thing I would suggest is to read up on relaxation exercises and pain meditation kind of stuff that you will use during labor and try some of that with your headaches. I know it's not full-proof, but you might feel like you're getting somethign accomplished by practicing and it just might help a little.<br><br>
Hope things get better!

I had a vent all planned, and then I saw an ad on the side that says "wet wipes form china"… yes, "<i>form</i> china"… and I got a mental image of a bunch of wet wipes put together to make a country. Then I laughed and now my vent seems silly. I'll vent again later, I'm sure.

Thanks for the sympathy, muppet : ) Sometimes a little sympathy helps alot more than anything else. I finally broke down and took a tylenol and it took the edge off the headache, so at least I can function again.<br><br>
Wet wipes form China huh? Have you ever heard of Engrish.com? It's a whole website of poor Chinese to English translations on packaging, food, etc. and it is hilarious.

I get those bad sinus headaches too. Ibuprofen is my usual salvation. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> The list of natural head congestion remedies here has been very helpful: <a href="http://www.kellymom.com/health/meds/cold-remedy.html#natural" target="_blank">http://www.kellymom.com/health/meds/...y.html#natural</a>
