Oh wow, there are so many of us with colds. I hope we all start feeling better soon. And thanks for the tip about the echinacea tea. I never know what is ok to take, or drink, when pregnant. I don't think I drank a single cup of tea while I was pregnant last time because no matter how much I researched nothing ever said: This tea is a ok! Herbs are quite confusing.
I wish I could gain some weight. I'm a little nervous about my next set of appointments because as far as I can tell I've only gained a total of 3 pounds, which is still 3 shy of the weight that my midwife wanted me to gain. I feel like I'm eating ALL the time and eating a lot. I guess my body doesn't think so. I wonder if it has to do with nursing? I'm still nursing my DS and have had one heck of a time keeping weight on since he was born. When my cycle returned, I was pretty close to my pre-pregnancy weight, but at my lowest I was down nearly 15lbs - I looked anorexic. It was horrible.
I'm glad I'm not the only one with a mellow baby in their belly. I feel the baby, but not nearly as much as I felt DS. I'm hoping this means a laid back LO...I sure could do with a baby like that...DS is in constant motion. If he's awake, he's running around getting into stuff.
Ok, time to go finish the biggest plate of spaghetti ever.
