1/2 A Box of Kleenex and No Personal Training

I slept horribly last night. I couldnt fall asleep and couldnt stay asleep. First thing I did when I woke up was cancel my personal training session. Looks like my trainer might have some availability on Friday so I might still be able to make it up this week.

This cold is in full effect. I have a double earache and have blown my nose so many times I cant believe its still on my face. My head is throbbing. Of course, Brooke has been a real stinker today and given me a run for my money. Kids always like to kick you when you are down :)

And since I'm pregnant, I cant drug myself up the way I normally would when I have a cold. The only products I can take are Tylenol brand, and I have to say ... I've tried three different Tylenol Cold products and they dont appear to have any effect at all! And its tough to even find the stuff in a store since they pulled most of them from the shelves. I'm getting a little desperate and thinking of trying to locate a meth lab to get the good stuff, since thats where it all must have gone. (Sure, I could go ask a pharmacist, but who wants to go through that whole ordeal anyway????)

I thought this would just come and go, but I've been sick since Friday. I think I'm going to keep Brooke in the house for the rest of her life so she can't pick up any more cooties and pass them back to me. Sounds like a good plan, right?

I remember how miserable it was to be sick while being pregnant. have you tried the Neti pot for your congestion? It helped me a ton!!!! Feel better soon.

I admit that I have been lagging when it comes to blogging lately. BUT, I remember suggesting you might be preggers many months ago when you weren't feeling well...and look here you are 1/2 way through a pregnancy!

Feel better soon. Tylenol products do nothing for me either.
