I spoke too soon....

Today was pretty nasty in terms of how I felt. I've been doing really well, but a big storm came in today and I had a nasty headache a good portion of the day. I also spent a good chunk of the morning at work feeling sick and light headed, partially because I threw up all of my breakfast on my way to work and didn't have time to eat something (and not much of anything I actually wanted to eat in my desk) to 'replace it'. Not totally sure what triggered the throwing up as I ate when I usually do on the way to work and ate the same thing I always do, I thought I had figured out what was causing it (going too long without eating; I also found when I eat first thing in the morning, I have to eat a carb first before anything else.... I had a couple of bites of an apple this morning before my sandwich, I think that might have been what did it, but I can't figure out why it didn't actually make me sick until I had eaten my whole breakfast sandwich...

I've wondered if this headache is an indicator that I have developed gestational diabetes because my sugar was all out of whack at work today, and the headache got worse this afternoon when I had gone a little while without anything healthy to eat (because we were moving the office today and I had packed most of my desk's healthy snack stash my afternoon snack was swiss cake rolls and a caffeine free pepsi.....) The storm was also getting worse around the time my headache was though, and the phone problems we started having again also hit around then. Add to that the fact that a couple of the calls I took around that time were from people calling on terrible cell phone connections with really loud interference and at least one or two of them were very angry people who would not be talked down (which makes me stressed and aggravates my headaches) and it's no wonder I felt like my head was going to explode by the time I left the office (twenty minutes later than usual)

If it rains it pours I guess (and today, that's LITERALLY the case....see the Boman family blog for pictures)

It's a very good thing today was Friday and I get to sleep in tomorrow!
