Then I was taken back to the exam room and he and Talia came with me back to the lab for the blood draw. I honestly thought I’d need a hand to hold either while it was being done or at least back to the exam room. (I almost always get faint and nearly pass out.) The nurse was really great and very caring thought and I barely even felt the needle. I did almost immediately regret my family coming back there with me because Talia was pretty upset that they were poking mommy, and maybe at the sight of blood.
The only real negative thing I’ve been dealing with are terrible migraines. They hit somewhere around mid-afternoon (2 to 3pm-ish) and get stronger as the night goes on. I’ve probably had the same headache for over a week now and it never full goes away, just kinda dulls here and there. So far today, nothing but maybe that’s because my hubby was gracious enough to let me sleep in (until 11:15 nonetheless!) and I actually slept decent last night.
