Monday morning catch up

I sit at home this morning....having called in sick to work. I started getting sick last Tuesday and it smacked me hard Wednesday afternoon. I spent most of Thanksgiving day without much of a voice (which has never happened to me!) and I didn't even go shopping on Black Friday. I ended up getting out for a little bit on Saturday but only about half a day before I was exhausted. I spent most of yesterday in the car driving back home from my brother's house and fell into bed around 8pm. I've got this cough that won't give but hopefully will ease up soon.

I will tell you one thing....I bought a generic neti pot at CVS before I left town last week and boy am I glad I did. It's a life saver.

This thing is amazing. It helps clean out your sinuses while moisturizing them. I know that sounds weird, but I get a really dry nose from the winter weather and all the indoor heating.


All in all, the pregnancy is progressing right along. I've discovered that the progesterone is being tolerated very well and my levels are increasing with every blood test (yea!). I've also discovered that I can hardly watch certain food commercials. There's one for Longhorn Steakhouse that has a cheesy steak in it that makes my stomach do somersaults.

We also went out for sushi for my sister-in-law's birthday on Saturday and while I ate all "cooked" sushi, Shooter decided that he wanted some raw nigiri. I took one look at his plate and had to turn my back to him. My stomach threatened to ruin the evening, but I held it in check.

It seems that I am averse to the things that I shouldn't be eating anyway. Guess that's good!


Oh...and since I last posted we had our first ultrasound. My dating indicates a due date of July 13 but the ultrasound showed a date of July 17. So according to the doctor, we're going with a due date of July 13. We even got to see the heartbeat!!! I was amazed that something so small was growing inside me.

I go for another ultrasound tomorrow. I'm excited about getting a new picture because I am planning a really cool surprise for my extended family.


Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and your Christmas preparations are moving forward smoothly!

I just can't get into the Neti thing...something about water up my nose that makes me squirm.
