That was all I needed!

This past weekend, I came down with a cold. Let me tell you, having a cold while pregnant is not very fun. The only cold medicines allowed are ones which do not work very well. Sud.afed and ben.adryl will only do so much. It is only a head cold, but it is enough to drive me crazy. Between the baby and my clogged sinuses, breathing is a real issue. And I drove poor Hubby out of our bed because I snore so loudly that I keep him awake, otherwise.

I have been doing nasal saline irrigation. We actually own a neti pot now, and I very familiar with it. I think it is becoming my friend. It does provide some temporary relief. I have been using it several times a day.

At least the house is clean, though. The cleaning people came on Sunday and thoroughly cleaned our house. It has not been this clean since we moved in! I think it is great. Hubby was unsure about the entire thing, as they straightened all his stuff in his man cave. He said he felt like he had to throw stuff around the room just to feel comfortable. I love having a clean house. The house cleaner will be back this Sunday to clean again. Hooray for housecleaning help!

I decided to take a break from baby stuff this week to start on Christmas stuff. The presents I ordered last week are starting to arrive, and I think I want to start wrapping them so that I do not have to do it all at once. I also hope to finally get a Christmas tree up by this weekend. Because I felt so bad last weekend, we did no Christmas stuff. All I could do was lay around and be sick.

At the moment, it feels like this stupid cold will be here forever. I know that is not true, but it is making my life fairly miserable. I hope that it goes away soon!

Hang in there.. I know how it feels. I too have a head cold and I'm 32 weeks with twins. I feel like if I have to cough one more time it will be the end of me. I wonder what the babies feel during it...

Colds suck, even more so while pregnant *hugs* hopefully it's short lived.
