I've been getting headaches every weekend for the past couple of months now. I talked to my midwife and she referred to them as "Vacation Migraines". I guess just when you can finally relax, your brain opens some blood vessels and then BAM, you get a headache. In my case these migraines last 3 to 4 days.
Last week was a particularly stressful and emotional week, so I didn't really start to relax much this weekend until last night and this morning. My mom took Joaquin for the night so Dan and I had the night to ourselves to celebrate the upcoming anniversary of his birth. We went for a drink at our old hang out, The Livewire, and then off to a mellow dinner at a new place, Blind Lady Ale House. We made it home fairly early and got to actually sit through a whole movie without toddler like interruptions. I even managed a whole night's sleep without having to wake up! This morning we slept in and went for a leisurely cheap diner breakfast.
So of course my body just couldn't handle all this relaxing and sure enough I currently have a pounding headache. My only consolation is that I'll go to work tomorrow and with all the joys my workday will bring, I'm pretty sure my headache will leave soon.
