I entered my third trimester of pregnancy last Friday, and within days my migraines returned. Those of you who have been following this blog may remember that I spent my first trimester primarily in bed, watching TV shows on Netflix and trying to distract myself from the relentless pain. Then, about mid-way into my second trimester, the migraines eased up and my energy returned. Now, it seems my reprieve has come to an end.
Once again, I find myself suffering with a migraine almost every day. Thankfully, though, they’re not as painful or as symptomatic as my first trimester migraines. Unfortunately, with the lack of sleep, the extra weight, and the dehydration that so characterizes the third trimester, it’s unlikely that I can do much to reduce their frequency. So, with only 11 weeks left to go, I’m crossing my fingers that my relative good fortune continues.
How about the rest of you pregnant ladies? Where are you in your journey, and how are you feeling?
