I bought this today! I absolutely can-NOT wait until tomorrow morning when I can enjoy my Bible study and a chai tea latte. I didn't want to have any today because I'm rather sensitive to caffeine these days and, I'll be honest, I didn't have any milk and while braving the traffic in a taxi to go to the American grocery store on a compound is one thing; walking in the frigid cold to the local store was quite another. But mostly it was the caffeine thing. Although it was so cold today that in my normally too-warm aparment was cold. Oh, and beginning Friday the forecast calls for highs in the singl digits. Awesome, my chai tea lattes will come in very handy.

On a different note, I've been having horrible headaches. The doctor told me not to take any medication I would not take while pregnant but the pregnancy-approved pain reliever whose name begins with a "t" and ends with an "l" with "yleno" in the middle is, for me, a lot like taking nothing because that's the effect it has on my pain. I had a headache for 48 hours and remembered I had some of the non-relieving pain reliever in prescription strength! I'm not sure if it's pregnancy-approved but it did the trick, I am happy to say. Unfortunately, I'm beginning to feel it creeping back up on me. I'm off to bed and hoping that will help.

I hope your headaches get better. I totally understand the resistance to use the drug that rhymes with "Bylenol" - it doesn't do anything for me, either. It's almost easier to just take nothing, since it's the same effect.

I hope your sleep helps!

Mmmm, chai! Enjoy it at your Bible Study group!

As for That Drug (that doesn't do anything for me, either), my midwife said that in pregnancy, the maximum dose is 4g/day. (not all at once, obviously.) So you should be okay. *hugs* I hope it goes away soon.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
