37 Weeks!

I have finally almost gotten this cold KICKED! Still not 100%... but I'm surprised at how fast it's gotten better despite the fact that I haven't taken any medicine. I know the doctors give you a list of "ok" meds... but I still don't trust them.

Cory put me on some home remedies of REST, a gallon of water a day, the nettie pot, breathing in steam from a pot of water and gargling salt water.

I was miserable enough not to complain... and honestly, I couldn't really move to get up off the couch anyway... except to go to the bathroom, of course. Cory would come home at lunch time to make me soup. Poor guy was still getting over being sick himself and he still took care of me at lunch time, shoveled snow at 4:30AM and went to work for 9 hours (only to come home and take care of me again). He's a special one, that Cory!

I am still going to take it easy for awhile... I have a little bit of a cough to get rid of... but hopefully I'll be back into the bloggy swing of things!

Oh yeah.... and 37 weeks... NOT LONG NOW!


I'm having little pre-labor symptoms... but when I look them up online, everyone says that they could happen for weeks before I go into labor... so I'm not getting too excited... yet.

Tomorrow is my next appointment... we'll see what they say!! :)

  3. I can't believe you're so close :) Now is when all the fun begins! You look amazing. I still would kick the doctor for ever suggesting that you were gaining too much.

  7. You do look great! I am glad your husband is taking good care of you, despite his busy schedule. I guess he realizes your body is hard at work too, in a different way! :) Feel all the way better soon!
