I’m almost done with month seven of pregnancy! Seven! It seems like it’s simultaneously flown by and lasted forever. On Saturday I’ll be 32 weeks in, which puts me right at month number 8. My migraines are slightly reduced from last month. I have the same amount of headaches but I’m grateful they’re not turning into migraines. The weather in New York City hasn’t really helped. The past two days it’s been gloomy and raining and that’s expected to continue. The weather, barometric pressure, and lighting (among other things) are huge migraine triggers for me. If you’ve just stumbled onto this blog post, you can catch up on month 1, month 2, month 3, month 4, month 5, and month 6, by clicking on each month.
I still ‘Cefalize’ every day (Note: If you are pregnant or trying to conceive please check with your doctor if you can use Cefaly. Everybody is different and it’s important that you follow your doctor’s specific recommendation for you). My final two torchiere-style lamps have arrived, which help me control the lighting in the apartment. The new blinds work like a charm to help me control the natural light in the apartment. For me, soda helps. I know for many people caffeine is a trigger but for me it’s more of a migraine suppressant. I wish I could drink even more soda but I have to watch my consumption because of the pregnancy. Overall though, it may be cloudy outside but the future is looking sunny!
Just in case this is the first blog post you’re reading in my pregnant with migraines diary, I want to once again disclose that I am the PR Manager for Cefaly in the United States. My experience is genuine and I want to make sure I comply with any blogging rules out there. You can read more about my story here.
