My parents brought DS back last night. He's pretty sick. I felt bad for him not being at home with his mommy when he felt so rotten and bad for my parents who had a couple of rough nights with him. He basically cuddled on the couch with me all day - sometime wrapping his arms around my neck and just laying on my shoulder. So unusual for a busy 20 month old toddler!
I don't understand - DH and I got sick the exact same day - we had all our symptoms the same every day as well. Why is it that I'm still coughing my brains out while he sleeps peacefully? Here I am at 1am, wanting nothing more than to sleep - my eyes are heavy but the second my head hits the pillow I'm listening to the gurgling in my lungs when I breath and every few seconds trying to grab my belly and cough! I admit it - I almost hate my BIL right now for spreading his germs around. I'm so angry! Yes it's true I don't want to be pregnant anymore, but really I'm more frustrated with this stupid cough than anything else. I would give anything just to only be dealing with the discomfort of being 40 weeks pregnant! I would gladly go way way overdue if I was healthy. I just feel like life will never be normal again...now how's that for hormonal dramatics lol!
Hope you are feeling better Conni - from the July board I see it is your anniversary, so HAPPY ANNIVERSARY I couldn't find your lodge yesterday when I was looking for it, so was hoping you are OK.
An easy answer as to why you are/were sicker than DH is that pregnancy does monkey with your immune system - one of the reasons many women have "bad" Paps during pregnancy but then they normalize after. So I hope the nasty sickness is 100% gone for you and now you can concentrate on a peaceful labor/delivery.

It's been awhile since I posted on my lodge - not much has been happening so I've been discouraged. It's hard to update with no news lol. I am feeling much better thank you and very ready for this baby. Thanks for the anniversary wishes! It's been an odd day. Actually an odd week but today especially.
So about two weeks ago my BP started to creep up. My midwife wasn't too concerned as we're near the end here but my last pregnancy I was high risk for the first half of my pregnancy because of PIH so it's something they've been watching for with this one. And I've been spilling some protein for my whole last trimester. That alone wasn't too bad but added to this I've started on the edge of getting sick again. Sore throat started yesterday and I can just feel it on the verge of coming back - my cough has picked up again and I'm just feeling physically poorly. So we've discussed it and decided I will go for an induction in the morning. I need to get this baby out. So we're doing cervadil in the morning. Still kind of hoping that my body does it on it's own tonight but I'm comfortable with my decision. I would hate to get really sick again at this point being 9 days overdue already.
Added to all this - we put an offer on a house tonight and tomorrow it's being presented. We're also putting our current house on the market this week. So today has not been quite the anniversary I imagined it would be - I thought I would have a baby by now at the very least lol. Anyway - hopefully we'll come back and celebrate our anniversary properly when things calm down a bit. Thanks for checking in girls! I'll be back home after the insersion tomorrow so I'll try to update.
