I’ve had the worst luck this past week or so. Last Thursday I mangled my thumb with a baby mobile. It was loose so I went to wind it up, soon as it was tight and ready to wind it un-spun at the speed of light and did it on my thumb nail. Now I have about 3 small bruises on my thumb nail. Thankfully it didn’t break. Because that’s how it felt… Broken. I didn’t know baby mobiles could be so freaking dangerous. Kai says it’s only me though. Thanks. So my thumb is still sore, it aches off and on up to my wrist and a little beyond. I’m just glad it’s not broke. Just sprained really bad. I was worried because it’s the thumb I broke from getting caught in a sliding glass door a couple of years ago in Florida.
Sunday rolls around and my thumb is feeling much better, I can actually move it without too much pain and such, the swelling was almost completely gone. I start getting a migraine Sunday afternoon. I thought it was one of the routine migraines I’ve been getting off and on throughout this pregnancy. Nope. I woke up Monday morning with the worse sinus infection I’ve had in a long time. The pain was so bad that I had to have a blanket covering my eyes. The light made my head throb even more. I tried some of the various herbs I had for sinus infections, however none were working. So I ended up taking a benadryl sinus & allergy. Not the best thing to take. I really would have rather not, but I was in alot of pain, and wasn’t functioning, and my fever was not going down. Oddly enough I don’t think I’ve ever had a fever from a sinus infection before. Well about an hour later the benadryl finally kicked in, the pain was minimal and I was really sleepy. Then it wore off, right around three pm and my pain was back with a vengeance. So I called my mom to see if she had any suggestions.
The only think she could suggest was the breathe-free essential oil blend they had. At this point I was willing to try anything. She brought some over and I put it on my temples and across my eye brows and on the back of my neck. After about thirty minutes, there wasn’t much change, after an hour still not much. So I took another benadryl. That wore off around ten pm last night. Fortunately the pain wasn’t nearly as bad as before. It still hurt, alot, trust me, but not as bad. So I took one more before bed. Thankfully this morning there’s barely any pain, my head isn’t stuffy and I have no more fever. I hate sinus infections. I used to get them almost every other month. This is the first one I’ve had since about two months before I got pregnant. Hopefully I won’t have to deal with anymore for quite some time.
I have a prenatal appointment this afternoon. I’m 6 months pregnany now. Wee! *_* The baby’s room is pretty much set up, with what we have anyways. The crib is all set up, the dresser is in there, her stuff is all put away, well what stuff we have. We just have to clean the closet out. Which will be Kai’s job since it’s all his computer junk. I need to get my hair trimmed soon. The ends are starting to split. I’ve been growing out for so long now, and it’s finally past my shoulders. I don’t want to go in and have somebody butcher my hair. Ugh. I have to have it trimmed soon though. I wish I knew someone who could cut hair. That I trusted. Cause I just don’t trust these hair salons. That’s why I used to cut my hair myself. Unfortunately I’m not good at cutting long hair, just short. Ah well. I guess we’ll see how long I put it off.
