I just got home from an OB appt. I've been having really bad headaches almost every day for the last 2 weeks. Tylenol has barely touched them. After describing them, he said they're migraines. Joy. He suggested that if Tylenol alone is cutting it, I can try alternating 1 ibuprofen with a regular dose of Tylenol, at least through the second trimester. He also said unfortunately, when he sees women getting migraines like this daily, they often get worse. He'd rather help me find a way to get ahead of them now, rather than end up like some of his patients getting IV treatments in the ER later on. He gave me a list of foods to avoid like aged cheeses (no bleu, cheddar, Parmesan, etc ), MSG, nitrates, sodium, etc.

In better news, everything else was great. BP was fabulous, I'm still down 3 lbs from my first appt, and my heart rate is good. I have a heart condition that can cause my HR to rise with a small amount of stress. They want to keep a close eye on that to make sure it doesn't become an issue. It hasn't been so far.

The best news... During the nurse's u/s Deuce's legs were crossed very tightly. I joked that I was a little disappointed we didn't get a good shot. She makes it very clear she's not an u/s tech, but she decided to humor me anyway. She looked for a little bit and printed a few pics. She said she can't officially tell me what she thinks I'm having, but there's a pretty good shot of a circle with three lines. We won't get to confirm until my official "big u/s" on Oct 19th, but it looks like Liam might be getting a baby SISTER!

Sorry about the migraines, that sucks. Mine had been dormant almost 20 years and then came back when I was preggo with Aidan and unfortunately have stuck with me ever since. If they get really bad, the very best thing you can do is lay down in a dark room (if possible - pretty hard to do with a toddler, I know).

Great news with everything else though, it's always nice to get a nice non eventful clean bill of health for you and baby. I'll look forward to the "official" news in October on if you're assumption for sister is right!

The nurse said if she had to bet today, she'd say girl. Maybe all those old wives' tales have some merit!

Shannon do you drink bottled or tap water? Some water sources are high in nitrates which can bring on migraines or even colic in infants.

Interesting. I'll have to look up our water. I drink tap. Our local source has all the info listed online.

ETA: Here's the link I don't know much about nitrites/nitrates, but those look pretty low to me.
