I’m done.

37 weeks tomorrow and until… last Friday or so I was coping.  But 4 days straight of what is probably the worst migraine ever, restless legs, incredibly swollen feet, unable to sleep, peeing every 20 minutes… etcetcetc… I’m just miserable.  More than miserable really.

Are you tired of hearing about my migraines?  I know poor DH is.  It’s nothing new for me to have migraines; I’ve had  them since I was 13 or 14.   But not daily!

I have done everything I can for this one.  My next stop will have to be the ER for another shot.  What fun.  So I’m killing time, waiting to see if DH can get some time off work to drive me up the hill to the ER.  I may break down and have my roommate take me, but I really really don’t want to do that.  I don’t really care much for him and being stuck in the car with him for an hour with a migraine sounds miserable.

Evie needs to be born so I can take my migraine medicine.  I don’t know how much longer I can deal with all this.  3 weeks I guess, right?  A few days ago that didn’t seem so long.  I know I’m not the only pregnant woman with migraines.  How the hell do you deal with this?  You’d think the third time around I’d have gotten a grasp on this.  It just gets worse each time.

I can’t lay down and rest or the restless legs really act up.  It’s almost tolerable if I’m sitting up.  I’d love to lay down and rest my poor head but I can’t.  So I started knitting this seamless yoke cardigan.  Ever seen someone miserable knitting?  I bet it looks fairly amusing.    It’s a fun pattern, not too difficult for a broken brain.  I’m using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino; the tiny stitches and very soft yarn gives me a very nice sense of accomplishment.

And it takes my mind off wanting to cut off my head.
