14 weeks, 4 days

Stomach Size: 95 cm

Prepare for a rant!

My head hurts. Ever since I've been 12 weeks pregnant, I've been really suffering with headaches. I've not been one to suffer much from headaches since school unless I've had too much to drink the night before or just generally dehydrated, but now I'm getting them almost daily. I can't be dehydrated as most days I am drinking so much water - easily 3 litres. Though I'm told it is bad to drink more than 3 litres so I'm actually trying not to drink too much. I don't want to keep eating paracetamol - especially because it is useless. I'm really missing Nurofen.

What I really want is a nice head and shoulder massage but I can't afford it at the moment. I'm having my hair done this month so spending out on that. May be next month if I'm still suffering, but I hope I'm not.

I think my memory is definitely starting to go now too and Baby Brain is setting in. I went food shopping having left my purse at home. Thankfully, I noticed before going to the till but had to leave my shopping near the customer services desk while I went home to get my purse. Couldn't have happened on a worse day as there were two sets of roadworks with traffic lights between Sainsbury's and home and a journey which should have taken me 5 minutes each way took me nearly 15 minutes one way. At least I didn't have much cold or frozen food but it was a real struggle with my head hurting.

I wonder if the headaches and the losing of brain cells is related????

Well I'm going to try and have a nap to see if that eases my headache...
