So, I am pregnant. And Loving it. And so excited.
But I have to tell you, there is one aspect of pregnancy I have always hated, and will always hate.
What could it possibly be? Peeing all night? Heartburn? Varicose Veins? Those ugly stockings you wear to help with Varicose Veins? Nausea? Nausea from your nausea?
Nope, none of those. All of those, I can deal with, peeing, it's cool, it's getting you used to getting up with the baby. Heartburn? Tons of tums. Varicose Veins, they suck, but really, having the heavy stockings are a good excuse to not shave everyday. Nausea is a great excuse to eat what I want when I want, like some yogurt and cheese RIGHT NOW.
All of that, I don't see as being bad, or annoying even. I just see it as part of the excitement and changes of pregnancy, not bad, not good, just IS.
So what do I find is just horrible about being pregnant?
When you are sick, there is absolutely NO medicine you can take.
I HATE it. And right now, I have the most awesomely echoing cough, an almost non-existent voice (that the kids are taking full advantage of pretending to not hear) and a runny nose that literally is dripping. Sorry for the awful visual there.
My doctor said I could take Tylenol for the aches, suck on lozenges for my throat and do a nasal spray for my nose, which I think I did incorrectly because I started coughing more after I did it.
So for now, I am dying on the couch, trying to get some work done on my laptop as the children take over and ignore my hoarse whispers to quiet down, share, and play nicely.
