Sunday night I started getting a migraine, which I'd been lucky enough to have avoided for 16 weeks. I tried to deal with it all day Monday, taking magnesium and staying hydrated as directed by my doctor, as well as taking some Benadryl with the... Read more
I had my ultrasound today to check to see if the baby was breech and if my placenta was too low. Discussion of a c-section would have been the result had either of those been the case, however, Baby Bobcat is head down and my placenta moved up, ... Read more

Doctor has now suggested Magnesium Oxide tablets.

Exhibit A: Go on a weekend trip and forget your Fitbit Charger. It makes it a bit hard to track your steps.
However, this weekend was a wonderful celebration. J.D.'s grandpa turned 90 years old! I did a terrible job at tracking food.
