I had a headache too, but I thought it was just because I was tired. When we got home, my headache started to get worse and worse until it developed into a migraine. Usually, I take migraleve and hope I caught it in time, but of course, this is too strong to use in pregnancy. I lay in a dark room for a couple of hours, and after the pain eased a little, we went outside for a walk. I think the fresh air seemed to help, and then when the rain came, I realised that my migraine had been caused by the air pressure. Thank goodness later that evening my migraine was finally gone!
It seemed like everything was coming at once. When I coughed, it felt as if there was a nail drilling through my head, and my stomach hurt when coughing too. And the final straw came at around 8p.m., when I had a searing pain in my lower abdomen. I thought it was contractions but my tummy wasn’t hard and the pain was continual. I was worried that there was something wrong with the baby. Even now, I don’t really know what it was, but I was unable to walk or talk for about 30 minutes..
Today, after Hannah had slept all night (thanks to the infant paracetamol which worked much better than the suppositories!), when I woke up, I felt so grateful to be alive and feeling normal!! I suppose it takes being ill to realise how much you have to be thankful for!
