- Sinuses clogged, but don't hurt
- Nose is super dry, not runny
- Flem in throat
- Dry cough that sounds fake once every minute
- Grunting in my sleep (according to KK, who is now sleeping in the guest room, poor guy)
Now, let me explain that I hardly ever get sick. Seriously, the last time I took a day off work was when I was vomiting down the street trying to drive there. And this isn't because I'm a warrior; it's because I have a good immune system and manage to stay healthy year round. I also pride myself in good hand-washing and antibacterial practices, both personally and at my home and in my classroom. I also have taken a daily vitamin every day and eat plenty of good fruits and veggies.
So having a cold TWICE this winter is annoying and surprising to me. The first cold I got was when I now know I was conceiving the child (*that word makes me smile) , and that cold wasn't bad because it did not include a stuffed nose at nighttime when I'm trying to sleep, and it did not have this annoying cough as a side kick.
Basically, I am fed up and ready for it to go away. I want to sleep at night, as well as have my hubby back to rub feets with when I'm feeling yucky. Please tell me, what are some good remedies you know that do not include taking medicine?

We also found out I am 9 weeks along-- not 8 weeks like we had thought! I was soo excited to hear that news! One week is like an eternity when you want something to happen so badly. Our baby will be born sometime around August 19th- one week before our 2 year anniversary. August is a good month for this family.

Last week your little tootsie was a blueberry, this week it’s back to the legume family: baby is about ¾” long, or roughly the size of a pinto bean. Luckily, that’s where the resemblance ends. Your magic bean is growing eyelid folds and the nerve cells in his retinas are beginning to form. The heart is being embellished with aortic and pulmonary valves. Fingers and toes have progressed beyond bud stage and now are formed down to the first joint, although they are still webbed. And baby finally has a funny bone − you’ll have to wait a bit to test it out, though!
** I'm so proud :) I go to the doctor Friday!!! First time, can't wait! I hope we can hear Baby K's heart beat!

First of all, NOTHING tastes good! It's like my taste buds have stopped working, and no matter what I eat, I am never satisfied. Believe me, I am hungry (still not nauseous, thank God), but everything I eat is just, blah. I have even stopped drinking my morning cup of coffee, and I don't even miss it!
Secondly, I have never, ever been so lazy in my life! Seriously, I have spent my winter vacation watching more TV then I have ever consumed in my life. Usually my breaks from school are spent reorganizing, painting, cleaning like mad, etc. But not this time! I'm sleeping about 9 hours a night, minus pee breaks and periods of insomnia. The minute I wake up I head to the couch, and then spend countless hours lying there, feeling like a slob. ANNOYING! I know my body is working super hard to create my perfect little angel-baby, but I just want to be me again! (I think the hubster is starting to wonder who this new person is that looks like his wife, but is way too boring to be the real deal).
I'm also constantly worried about my weight. I've always felt a little chubby, and now I am so worried I am going to turn into a fat monster, get yelled at by my doctor, and never be the same me again! It's not like I'm over-eating (remember, nothing tastes good), but not doing anything is really making me feel lazy and bloated. I wish there wasn't a billion inches of snow everywhere to keep me from walking- I love walking and I think it would help with the fatigue... Perhaps I will have to get over myself, strap on my boots, and take winter walks. I cannot begin to force myself down the stairs to get on the elliptical trainer. NO WAY JOSE
I would not give this pregnancy up for anything in the world, however, I would like a smidgen of energy, especially considering that tomorrow school starts up again!
