Don't Come Today

As of yesterday, I am 2 weeks away from my due date. I am praying today that the baby doesn't come. That's a weird request for a girl at my stage of pregnancy. Usually, someone at my stage is SO READY to have the baby.

I am too...except that for the last few days I've had a terrible headache. It got worse and worse and then last night (this morning really I guess...at about 2am) I woke up and thought I was going to die. Horrible I tell you. This has happened once before...last December I think. I don't know what a headache has to be before it is considered a migraine, but if this isn't it, it's close.

It's funny too, because I was dreaming about Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston when I woke up. Last time I dreamed about them (I was on a safari with them in Africa) my water broke and I had Hadley that day. Last night I woke up and thought, oh, my water's probably about to break. :) Then I stood up to go to the bathroom and felt the weight and pain of my head and decided that I hoped my water didn't break.

I was finally able to get back to sleep for a little while. But, I am still barely opening my eyes and propping up my 400 lb. head wherever I go (for instance, I am now sitting sideways on the couch with my head on a pillow on the back of the couch as I attempt to type this). It's a tad bit better than it was at 2am, but I am in no way, shape, or form in a state that would be able to birth a baby...not without some kind of general anesthesia to knock me completely out. :) That's an exaggeration, but seriously, pray that the baby will indeed wait until this head issue goes away. Thanks.

Michawn,
Lay across the bed on your back (well, I don't guess you could be on your stomach) and lean your head slightly off the edge. Get Joel to pull from your neck up toward your head and that will relax the muscles. That's what Douglas had to do for me when I had jaw surgery. The therapist told us to do that and it worked.
Hope it is better.
Love,
Mama

Praying for your healing and a pain-free head! Does you midwife have any herbs ideas or acupuncture points that could possibly help? I'm praying for your MEGA headache to go away asap!
