This morning was the first one in the last six days that I haven’t woken with a headache. Three and a half hours later and I can feel it starting up now. Still, at least I had a little respite.
I have been prescribed codeine to help with the headaches but I don’t want to be popping pills. I don’t like taking medicine and I can’t be taking pills constantly to numb the pain in my head. Surely it wouldn’t be good for the babies. I try to put it off until the pain is completely unbearable before I give in.
I have been taking the antibiotics as prescribed and am feeling much better than I was yesterday so that’s a bonus. I haven’t had any more vomiting or nausea and the dizziness has subsided for now so I am hoping the symptoms were just down to the urine infection and nothing else. Having never had experienced a urine infection throughout all my previous pregnancies, I’m quite surprised at how awful it can make you feel. Then again, I’m pleased to never have had any major issues during pregnancy and while I am prepared for things to get a little more difficult and for a higher risk of complications to arise I am thankful that I have so far had such an easy time of things.
Later today I will be off to the hospital once again, this time for a growth scan to check on the twins’ well-being. Mike and I have made our guesses to today’s estimated weights for each baby. I think 4lb 8oz for Twin 1 whereas Mike thinks it is 4lb 14oz, and I estimate Twin 2 to be 4lb 5oz to Mike’s guess of 4lb 9oz. If you want to play along just make your guess in the comments below or over on our Facebook page and I’ll update either later or tomorrow.
