Long time no post
I wish I could say I have just been busy, and while I have, not in a good way. I have had work and work and school and kids, but that pesky sinus infection wouldn't stop hurting so I headed to the dentist to see if that was the issue. Now the dentist happily gave me a root canal while I was trapped in the chair and assured me that I needed a wisdom tooth pulled, but didn't feel that was where the excruciating pain was coming from. So last night,after the root canal I went to bed thinking I would be pain free.....ah, nope! About a half hour after falling asleep it was back, in my ear,throbbing and pounding. Downstairs I came hysterical to the point of just bawling. Poor Ryan didn't know what to do, I mean I am a crybaby and all, but rarely do I cry from pain. Nothing made it feel better and I was pretty sure we were heading to the ER. I then tried an old homeopathic remedy my mom used when we were kids and put a few drops of warm olive oil in the ear. After the oil and a half hour of being upright, the pain subsided and I was able to sleep for about 7 hours! How weird is that! I am hoping this goes away soon, I really wanted to enjoy this pregnancy as it is my last, and I have felt crappy for months. At least I get to see the OB on Tuesday and I can hear the baby's heartbeat and get my script for the big ultrasound!
