Ugh, I have had a cold since Tuesday. It got much, much worse by Thursday. The past few nights I've been coughing constantly. My back is sore. My nose is stuffy. I'm just miserable.
This on top of the usual pregnancy complaints... sore ribs, sore pelvis, not being able to sleep, contractions, frequent pooping (lol) What a fun time.
EDD is Thursday. My last son was born at this gestation.
I really don't want to be sick going into labor. I spent the day in bed yesterday and I spent 12 hours in bed last night, most of it sleeping. I don't plan to do much of anything today. Not too easy with two tiny kids, but I've basically put my foot down and told DH we have no choice. Dosing with lots of vitamins, drinking tons of water and tea. I know that it's going to take time to work this out, and I may or may not have that time, KWIM? I'm trying to trust my body that I won't go into labor like this, but also trying to trust that things will be okay if I do.
It's really strange to have gone from being ready and impatient to just wanting another few days to a week to be completely over this!!
If you wouldn't mind holding some space for thoughts of health and healing for me (and babe) that would be so wonderful.
