Been A While....

It's kind of sad that absolutely NOTHING news-worthy happens in my life lately. lol. Well, maybe that's good...less drama! lol Pretty much the last couple of weeks, I've been sick as a DOG! I went to the doctor, of course, and I just had a pretty simple case of bronchitis. She told me to take it easy, and that's what I did. lol It kind of sucked though...pregnant women can't take a whole lot of medicines. All I could have was Benadryl, Robitussin, and Sudafed. And of course, I'm ALLERGIC to Sudafed, so that was out. I don't think I've ever tried to control an illness with benadryl before. Kind of pointless. lol

I feel SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better now. I've still got that whole after-cough thing, but it's getting better on a daily basis. The baby is moving like CRAZY, so that's good. :-) I have a sonogram scheduled next Monday, so we get to verify that it IS a boy. lol I can't wait! Those are always fun! :-) My doctor is also having me keep track of some weird symptoms. I called her a couple days ago about getting crappy migraines and my vision gets blurry or has little blue dots in it. I was also having this weird pain under my ribs. I thought it was just muscles stretching. She said it COULD be....but all those symptoms point to possible preeclampsia...EEK! She just told me to watch it and since I have an appointment Monday anyways, not to worry about going to labor and delivery yet. She'll check my blood pressure and make sure I don't have any protein in my urine. If I do, I have to go back on bedrest. :-( The only cure for preeclampsia is delivering the baby...and it's WAY too early, so they'd have to stick me in bed to make sure I don't start having seizures, or kidney and liver failure. Ugghh.

I'm holding out on the hope that it's NOT that, and that I'm just having weird migraines and pains. lol And she DID say that it could just be the normal, everyday stuff that DOES happen during pregnancy, but they watch is more carefully when it all happens at the same time.

Soooooooooooooooo.............that's what's going on with
