Whenever I’m pregnant, my hormone levels actually MINIMIZE my migraines. I obviously get off all medication and my body compensates and corrects itself which is always a blessing. It’s been 3 weeks since giving birth to Caleb and I am SO SAD to say that the migraines have returned.
I have an appointment this week with my neurologist to get back on my daily pills. There was a small piece of me that was hoping my hormones would continue to eliminate the migraines – but no such luck.
I had a WHAMMY the other night. I didn’t sleep a wink (and not because Caleb parties hard at 3AM). I haven’t had one in MONTHS and that puppy took me by surprise. Oh well – so much for wishful thinking.
It is what it is. This is what my body needs. I’ve already made peace with the fact that I will be on these pills for the rest of my life. However, there are things to do to minimize the frequency. I just can’t do them YET. Exercising is a BIG one but I want to wait a few more weeks before I start hitting the treadmill. Ah who am I kidding? There’s no treadmill in my future. But I am looking forward to walking around my neighborhood and playing tennis again.
My body still needs more time to recuperate before I get on that plan of action though.
