Sick & tired :(

Hi all,

Yet again it's been awhile since I last blogged. I've been sick again (& very tired), but this time I have a nasty rattle & a cough instead of morning sickness. If it's not one thing it's another lately. I got that bad that I spent last Wed night/early Thurs morning in the Emergency department (of our local hospital) with breathing difficulties. Luckily after all the tests the doctor decided that I had a virus & told me to get some cough medicine.

Which proved to be harder said than done, as one pharmacy told me not to take anything until I had seen my GP. So I asked for a second opinion at another pharmacy who said as long as I only took it once a day instead of 3-4 times a day (as the emergency dr said) I should be ok. So when I saw my GP today I got him to look at the medicine & to tell me how much I could take & how often I could take it. Besides the cough medicine I now have a puffer & some antibotics. Hopefully by the end of this week I should be all better :D. Which will be nice.

All these medications are Bug safe - Thank goodness!!! As I was worried about the little tacker ;). We are now down to less than 10 weeks, YAY!!! Mind you having said that, I still have heaps to do in the nursery. It's been that long since I blogged that I can't remember if the cot was up last entry? Well not only is the cot up, but it now has a new mattress as well. I am hoping to get all the baby clothes & linen washed this week as well. Mind you after about 3 days of sunshine (all day & night) we had a storm late yesterday & they are predicting more rain on the way - grrrrrrrrrrrrr. I'm sure the "gods" are laughing their butts off at the moment. Luckily I now have a dryer as well as an inside line.

Well that's enough for today - TTFN :D

Poor you, sounds like you've had a really rough time. I'm sure the next 10 weeks will just rattle by and then you'll have a cute little bundle to put in that cot! Hugs from the UK, Jo x

Sorry to hear that you've been so sick. When your pregnant and come down with somethign it really is so much worse than if you weren't prego. I had a difficult time in my pregnancies also with monring sickness and other ailments so I can sympathize. It can be no fun sometimes! I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes way better!
