You would think by baby 5 I would stop worrying so much during early pregnancy. This girl is a worry wart.
Morning sickness is not as bad – but fatigue is settling in HARD as well as headaches.
I never have had headaches with any of my others; however, this time around I always end the day with a light headache. I do think this is mainly caused by the noise of the kids. Tons of noise all the time – I am so happy we do not live in an apartment or I would feel horrible for everyone around us.
Light sensitivity is something I have struggled with my whole life. There is something wrong with my pupils – they do not contract like they should which allows too much light into my eye which causes headaches and other issues. I am just noticing this time around I am having a ton more eye issues. It is getting to the point that I think I will have to make an eye appointment ( which is something I do not want to do during COVID).
