I Feel Pregnant. And Awful. But I Guess That's Kind Of Redundant!

Well. Nothing says early pregnancy like a raging sinus infection, hmm? Coupled with nausea, which on the one hand is helped by the sudden, total inability to smell anything, but which is then on the other hand greatly irritated by a week of post-nasal drip.

Also, nothing says pregnancy like worry/guilt about every little thing you do, such as taking Sudafed, antibiotics, Tylenol and Zofran for five days straight. I sure hope this poor kid comes out with just one head. If not, well, you know who to blame.

I will say this, though- Breathe Right strips are a straight miracle when you're trying to go to sleep with a stuffy nose. How have I lived twenty five years without those babies?


*This too, was an absolute miracle- Eli threw up twice on Saturday, and not in small amounts, either, but both times someone else cleaned it up instead of myself.

Breathe Right strips! Why did I never think of those things when I was sick while pregnant and then again right after The Lad was born? Brilliant.

Hope you feel better soon

I am SO GLAD you are still feeling awful! (Because of what it means about the baby, not because I actually want you to feel terrible!)

Breathe Right strips! Man how did I not think of that back when I needed them??? Hooray for someone else cleaning up the puke!

Dude! I'm neck deep in a raging sinus infection, too! I worried about taking meds but I was so miserable that I caved. If my kid is born with an extra set of toes I'm totally blaming it on my husband's side of the family and not my Tylenol Cold usage.

I hope the sickness passes soon!

Man, how good are you at faking that sinus infection? Because if I were you, I'd be playing THAT card EVERY time someone puked.

On the other hand, I call NO FAIR with being sick while also being pregnat-sick. NO. FAIR.

Hang in there.

Hmmm. . . breath right strips? Must investigate. Everyone is stuffy at my house and it is wearing pretty thin around here.

Well, I'm glad you're sick because I'm going to assume that means that your hormones are still kicking!

That little bit about a boy named "God" is cracking me up, which I desperately needed today.

I'm so glad I read this! I have a bit of a sore throat today and I'm whining (in my head) "I can't get sick now." "What's worse than getting sick RIGHT NOW?" And there you have it -- being sick and pregnant. Seriously, there's nothing worse! I hope you're feeling better soon! :)

Ugh, so sorry you're sick. But so glad you're still feeling pregnant! I'm so excited about this!
