Migraines, Migraines please go away!

I have been getting very bad migraines since I was a teen. I know I'm in a lot of trouble when I feel a migraine coming on. The first time I had a migraine I was in bed for 2 days.

When I know I'm getting a migraine, my right foot will go numb and the numbness will make its way up the right side of my body and chest. Then it will work its way down the left side of my body. Every inch of my body will become numb and they don't know why. Ive had MRI's done and no doctor can find a reason as to why my body does what it does. Once the numbing goes away, I get sharp pains in my temples and my head feels like its going to explode. Then comes the nausea and I'm completely incapable of doing anything, let alone caring for two young children.

I got a really bad migraine on Friday and had to go to the ER and get an EKG done and a bag of iv fluids along with some mag sulfate. On Wednesday I had a bad attack again and had to go to the ER again, but this time they gave me two shots in the butt and they started going away.

I usually only get 5-10 bad migraines a year but having 6 in a row is pretty scary. Ive also noticed that after every migraine, my eye sight has gotten dramatically worse. I just wish my kids don't get these migraines like I do, since they are hereditary.

oh migraines, how I loathe you!

So my dad called me at like 8am (still hungover) and wanted to see if we wanted to go to reno with him. So we got the kids ready and my dad picked us up.. I knew it was a bad idea for me to go because I was so hungover from the night before..

On our way to Reno...

DJ and Dave..

Preschool Bound!

I got the Preschool Registration Packet and Preschool Readiness Checklist for DJ!

I cant believe he is going to be a Preschooler this fall! I go to the Preschool in may and get him registered. He will be going to school Monday - Friday. I think this is going to be great for him with his speech and his peer interaction.

Also I am trying to find either a T-Ball/Little League or Soccer Team for DJ to play on this summer. He needs to meet kids his own age and make some friends this summer before school.

Aahhh!!! My baby boy is growing up way too fast!

Time to Potty Train!!!!

last night Reagan went pee pee on the potty 3 times in a row!!! She was so proud of herself and we were giving her lots of praises!!

So today I got her some more big girl panties and I made a potty chart and got some stickers, just like I did for DJ =)

Im so glad we are one step closer from getting rid of diapers!!!

March Of Dimes....

On April 24, 2010 I will be participating in the 2010 March of Dimes: March for Babies Walk. I am very excited to be apart of something so meaningful and it is such a great cause.

The last time I walked was when I was 35 weeks pregnant with DJ. I walked all 6 miles and by the end of the walk my whole body was swollen and I was having mild contractions, but I pushed through and finished. In 2007 I raised over $500 and this year I hope to raise at least that much again, maybe even more!

This year I am walking for a few friends that have lost their beautiful babies to premature labor and those friends who's babies are still struggling in the nicu...

So I am asking you to please help such a wonderful cause and help me reach my goal by sponsoring me this year! Every little bit counts!!!

Thank you so very much!!!
