HEAD ACHE....

I actually have good news....even though I have a head ache I think I know why I have been getting them. Today it is simply because I can't keep myself full. I have been starving all day! So for today it's a hungry head ache...but in the past I think I figure out what was wrong. Once you start getting big you are not supposed to sleep on your back. Doing so you cause a number of problems. One being that it can restrict the blood flow to your heart and brain. I think this is what was happening. I would always get thew head aches while sleeping and I would always wake up on my back. So if you are pregnant and having problems with your head, try sleeping on your side. For me the last week I have tried really hard to sleep on my side and this was the first head ache I have gotten. BUT like I said before, it's a hungry head ache. So yeah. I am going to go to bed soon. I wanted to catch up on some blogs but I will have to wait one more day. :)

lol i've totally tried, but for some reason every morning I wake up on my back! :( sad times, not to say that it helped matters, but the preterm labor nurse that I spoke to told me that it cuts off the blood flow and oxygen to your placenta and in turn to the baby(ies)!!! talk about stress! lol your probably right though, i've had more headaches recently too!
