As I sit here typing and reading blogs, I have a pile of tissues waiting off to the side...why, you ask? This prego lady has an insane cold. I had been fighting it off since Wednesday or Thursday, but I am sure working the whole weekend along with some additional hours over my 40 usual hours working last week didn't help my fight. So I finally called the nurse line and got the list of meds I can take. Mucinex DM seems to be doing the trick (along with Tylenol and cough drops).
How far along: 26 weeks! Your baby would now weigh about two pounds and measures around 14 inches- just like an English hothouse cucumber.
Total weight gain/loss: 15 pounds (that is until my appt on 2/2 when I find out how much I have gained the last 4 weeks)
Maternity clothes: Definitely.
Stretch marks: No new ones.
Sleep: Eh, the cold I have been dealing with has me up at all hours blowing my nose...:(
Movement: If I sit still long enough (ha!) I can feel the little one kick (enev when sleeping).
Cravings: Haven't been very hungry the last 4-5 days due to the cold.
Gender: It is a surprise! I have stocked up on some neutral layette items (had more than a few neutral items left over from DD) all are washed and ready to go!
Symptoms: Heartburn, tired, hands are a bit swollen (already???)
What I miss: The things I miss can wait 3+ months.
What I look forward to: Meeting this little miracle.
Moods: Getting a bit more emotional these days.
Milestones: Another week down!
Medical Concerns: Not a concern, but this cold is kicking my rear! I even debated going into work today...LOL
Weekly Wisdom: Hummm...none really this week. :)
Best moment this week: Realizing that I have about 3 months to go...
Worst moment this week: No really bad moments, nothing compares to the sickness I have right now!
