THIS was my magical cure for my migraines that seriously crippled me

Headache and migraine relief

If I’d known that falling pregnant would fix so many of my ‘ailments’ I’d have been up the duff yonks ago. I realise I sound like an 82-year-old woman using the word ‘ailment’ but at 35, I seriously felt like a ripe old duck…a duck with alignments.

At 13, when the wonderful womanly changes happened to my body, I was smacked violently in the face (or should I say head) with migraines. Debilitating, painful, rotten migraines. A dark room, a bed and complete silence were on my monthly agenda.

Nothing would get rid of these bad boys. If I added up all the coins I’ve spent over that time trying to fix this problem it would probably be equivalent to a small yacht or a night out with Justin Bieber (did you hear he spent $75,000 in ONE night?).

Botox, Reiki, Massage, Chiro, Osteo, Hypnosis, daily anti-migraine meds, meditation courses, counselling, diets. You name it I tried it. I was at my wits end.

My magic preggo hormones got rid of something that no Doc or amount money could seem to fix. If I knew this was my magic potion I’d have been pregnant at 13 when this all began. I could have even made some money from MTV and appeared on one their teenage pregnancy shows. Oh if only I’d known!

I realise there is a flip side to this for many a pregnant dame. While some of us become ailment free, others have an influx of them.

At the moment a handful of my friends are ‘with child’. We sat around talking about how we are finding our pregnancies the other day and there was a massive divide between the pregnant lovers and the pregnant haters. Some of us got the magic hormones and the others are finding pregnancy really rotten.

The pregnancy pro’s for some of us are pretty incredible. One of my friends can now do the splits. Yes the splits. Her limbs are as flexible as when she was seven. She has turned into a big bellied Gumby.

Another friend is having seriously wild wonderful multiple orgasmic sex. Eeew, the only thing worse than thinking of your friends doing it is thinking of your parents don’t you reckon?

Then we visited the flip side and it ain’t pretty. Pimples have sprouted on backs,  nipples are sore and leaking (and the baby ain’t even here yet), migraines have started, hair is thinning and then there is the case of hammer vag. Oh and that thumping painful pressure that apparently feels like a hammer hitting the old Va Jay Jay. Hence the name, hammer vag.

Pregnancy can be kind to some and a complete bitch to others. Either way it’s only nine months of bliss or hell I guess.

Did you like or really not enjoy your pregnancy?

    So random that pregnancy favours some and totally curses others. I too was in the pro-preggo group, and definitely reached a point when I wanted to stay pregnant forever because of the happy-joy-joy hormone rush.

    I have 7 and half weeks to go with my first Monty and once I finally got over the initial shock of ginormous (yes G for ginormous) boobs and a booty and thighs to clear shopping aisles, I’m actually now really enjoying being preggers. Especially when my little one feels like he or she is going to karate kick through my belly! It really is amazing how it affects every girl in different ways! Wishing you all the best from now til your little one arrives and beyond.

    “hammer Vag” OMG that made me laugh out loud! I too am preggo, second bub with 9 or so weeks to go, and this pregnancy has definitely been so much harder on me than the last, though not as bad a some people I know! I have got the “Hammer Vag” so much worse than last time and have worried that this bubba is going to kick it’s way out completely ha ha! I have found my body does not feel as strong this time, like I am more “stretched” than last time and the muscle support feels more lacking! But, at the end it will be all worth it and that is the focus. Also, I have been battling a little bit of very *guilty* “possible gender disappointment” which totally pains me to say. It is something not well spoken about and quite taboo really, but I think it needs to be addressed more and be more open about because it does affect people frequently, but most feel like they can not talk about it at all for fear of being judged as “selfish” and “ungrateful” . In fact there was an excellent article about it in the most recent edition of Melbourne Child, finally someone wanting to put it out there. http://www.webchild.com.au/read/stories/gender-disappointment. All the best Monty! Again we will have babies pretty similar in age! Cheers Amy.
