Tea is a pain in the neck...

I have a little problem concerning tea. I love tea. I drink at least 5 or 6 mugs of tea a day. I now realized that while trying to get pregnant I have to cut out all caffeine, which includes my daily tea :( Basically the tea I drink (Glen tea) falls in the black tea category which is not suitable for pregnancy. I should switch over to Rooibos tea, which falls in the red tea category. But I don't like Rooibos that much. It is fine when drank without milk but that is how I usually drank it when I wasn't feeling well (something my mom taught me). It is almost depressing...

Anywoo, this was such a relaxing weekend, more due to the fact that I could barely move. I pulled a muscle in my neck on Saturday morning, and for the first hour it drove me to tears a couple of times. I could not lift my arms (dressing was so much fun :/), could only have my head in one position (tilted to the left) and could barely walk without whimpering. I was in utter agony! This lasted the entire day! Yesterday it started to ease up a bit but I still can't fully turn my head to the right or tilt it in that direction. And it seems that sleeping makes it worst... And it seems its also causing me to come up with really stupid post headings lol.

I managed to get a photo of me and my very good friend from my birthday outing, taken by my loving husband. With my next birthday I hope there will be a little baby in the pram in front of me (and a newer pram too lol). Just so you know, I am the one on the left, the short one :)

Try a hot and cold treatment. Hot water bottle on your neck for 10 min. Then a cold back of frozen peas for another ten. Then switch. Do this for an hour a day and it should help :) What about something like Deep Heat?

Hope you feel better soon!

It is starting to feel better now, though any sudden movements is still causing some pain. I also applied Reparel Gel (thinks that's how it is spelled lol)
