So far there is no end in sight to my sinus infection. Which I think is a little more than a sinus infection considering the amount of pain I am in! I had to come from work early yesterday; there was no way in hell I was going to work today. I spent most of the day in bed. My sinuses throb constantly. It feels like some took a hammer and hit me in the sinuses, and when there is some relief, that someone goes and hits me again. The only thing I can take is Tylenol which only offers some relief. I steam, I am steam all the time, I have a humidifier in the bedroom, I irrigate with a saline solution AND I have tried compresses. They only make it worse and make me feel nauseated. I have seen things come out of my nose that nobody should have to see! I am not trying to complain, I know in the end it will all be worth it when I have my baby in my arms but 6 months is a long time off. On a happier note, Grey’s Anatomy is on tonight and I can’t freakin wait. Last year I got to see it a few hours earlier as my friends had satellite TV and we could see it in Eastern Standard Time. Oh how I miss out Grey’s Anatomy parties. That’s the best way to watch a show is with a bunch of friends. Party for one tonight (2 if you count little peanut!) I did watch Private Practice last night, it was okay hard to say whether it will flop or not. Well I am out here. Pray for relief for me please!
I have created a new blog and I don’t think I will be writing on here much anymore. I prefer to have an anonymous blog even though this one is, I need to feel that what I write/say 100% anonymous. If you like what you have read and want to continue to read me, please delurk and leave a comment and I will email you the URL.
I really didn’t want to get out of bed today. My lower back is hurting me more than it has before since getting pregnant right down by the base of my spine and usually it goes away after some stretching and a good night sleep; which is not the case today. My sinuses are going into over drive which marks the start of allergy season for me and I can’t take anything since and I preggers and once baby is here I still won’t be able to take anything as I will be breastfeeding. Gah! I only got out of bed to go into the steaming bathroom to get some kinda of relief, which wasn’t much. After the hot water replenishes its self I shall deplete it again to have a hot bath to sooth my back. Then I thinks me going back to bed.
Seriously, Seriously, Seriously?! I can’t believe this is for real!
One very needy cat who is was already needy to begin with. We left her with one of Scott’s friend’s and Scott was worried that she would prefer his company to ours, but that is so-not-the-case. She is extra vocal, with one of us wherever we our in the house and is sleeping with us through most of the night, and usually she would only sleep with me when he would get up for work. She is has also upgraded herself into a super attention whore instead of a regular attention whore. Gah! I love my kitty to prieces but I can’t be with her 24/7.
Scott and I spontaneously decided to make a spare of the moment road trip up to Calgary to see his parents. (Who I shall refer to as in-laws even though were not married.) I am no hurry to make that drive again anytime soon. We drove straight to Calgary in one day and back in one day from Victoria. Not fun, especially when I’m 5 weeks to due date, and the baby has dropped and/or gotten bigger because my lap now has a constant companion when I sit. The trip was fun albeit brief I got to see my best friend who moved up there recently and another friend that lives there so it made the drive all the more worth it; but my back will tell you differently. I would love to tell you more, but my usually sore back is quite sated after a wonderful massage; a state in which it would love to stay for as long as possible.
It’s probably time for another update. I can’t believe March will here tomorrow! And I can’t believe that I have only 6 short weeks to go until my due date! Where has the time gone?? I think I have most everything I need for this baby. There are a few things I still would like:
-a used bassinet as the baby won’t be in it all that long (if worse comes to worse I’ll just use the Pak ‘N Play)
- More crib sheets [as cheap Circo ones I bought at Target do not fit the crib mattress, (which is a standard size crib mattress) I have come to love Target especially since we don't have them in Canada, but I am not so sure on this Circo brand]
- accessories for the nursery
- more diapers
- breast pump
- bottles (not sure what kind to go with so far I am doing glass as all the stories I am hearing about chemicals leaking into the milk)
- more receiving blankets
I am sure there is more but that’s all I can think of at the moment.
There is an Alan Jackson concert I want to go to on May 2 in Vancouver but I don’t know how feasible it is seeing that I will have a baby that will be between a week and month old, how sleep deprived I will and how I feel about leaving it that young. It wouldn’t be a big deal to leave it with my dad for a few hours but I don’t know… probably will not happen.
Well I must start some daily tasks and like any true Canadian I am thankful to have some Tim Horton’s in me to perk me up. Thank God Roll up the rim is back! I am already 1 for 2.
Yesterday Scott and I went to out 33 week ultrasound and this kid that is residing in my body is estimated to be 4 lbs 11 oz! That seems to be a little on the big side and is making wonder how big s/he will be when it is time for me to bring him or her into this world. I know this baby has a lot more growing to do and I hope I am up for the task. I do not want a c-section. I have only gained 21 lbs too! I know this is an estimate, and not too far off the this chart however it just seems big to me. I hope that this baby is just long and not round. Scott is tall and was 21 or 22 inches when he was born so I am hoping this baby is just taking after his or her daddy.
I am starting to get stretch marks, which I had been hoping to avoid. I do put a coco butter cream on my tummy 2X a day but I guess I just don’t have elastic skin. There is one product that I wanted to buy on-line that another blogger recommended but amazon.com doesn’t ship this type of product to Canada! WTF? Nor is it on amazon.ca and the manufacturer doesn’t ship to Canada either. Mama Mio is certainly losing a lot of business.
Is when her partner/husband/fiance/boyfriend/ turns down the water heater without telling her (Again!) so that there isn’t enough hot water for a hot bath which means a luke warm bath (only to be discovered when getting into the bath, which started off hot when she ran the bath to being with) equals one pissed off mama who is very uncomfortable with constant back pain and is limping due to a painful charlie horse in her calf for the last 2 days. Not to mention the sleep deprivation and and belly ache due to constipation. That is one sure way to do it. Which renders her unable to relax thus pissing her off even further in the midst of her discomfort.
