Oh man. I am so sick. I've come down with a cold but I've never had a cold like this. Today is day 6 and I'm miserable. And of course, I'm pregnant.
That beautiful Nyquil taunts me as I stick to the honey-lemon tea and Tylenol that my doctor prescribed.
I haven't sleep for more than an hour at a time since Monday. The only place I feel some comfort is laying in the shower so I've been taking three showers a day (or middle of the night.) On the bright side, my legs have never been so smooth.
Thursday I co-hosted a ladies brunch at my friend's house and then hosted a bridal shower at mine. Previously planned things I couldn't postpone.
I looked like death, but somehow I got through them and they turned out nice.
With the help of a sweet housecleaner who took my emergency call.
Shane can't take any time off, but I've had some great friends who took the kids for a few hours to let me nap.
Not that I can nap with the constant coughing, but resting is nice.
Anyone know what happens when you have a big baby resting on your bladder and an uncontrollable rasping cough? Yeah. That happens.
The person who I am so impressed with is Lydia. She has just taken over watching Collin. They play school, she helps him pick out clothes, they play board games together.
Friday morning I woke up to find that Lydia had already made herself and Collin breakfast,
and a little something for me.
Sweet sweet girl.
I have a great family.
(But being sick and pregnant still totally sucks.)
Any suggestions for dealing with a cold while pregnant?
