How does one person produce so much of it? It feels like it is overtaking my entire head. Occasionally it will find its' way out my nose or throat. Disgusting, I know. HeRoos (who is super sick too) is sleeping away so I get to complain to you, my innocent blogging friends.
One of the many discomforts of pregnancy happens to be extra embarrassing during cold season-bladder control. I woke up over an hour ago coughing uncontrollably. Well, I wasn't conscious enough to tell my body what it should and shouldn't do so as I was coughing and pressure was put on my bladder from the baby... I had to rush to the bathroom. Don't worry, I don't have to change the sheets or borrow a diaper from BabyRoos but I will say that sneezing and coughing turn on a leaky faucet. TMI (too much information)? Probably so, but those of you out there know that I often overshare.
We do have good news. When I went to my OBGYN on Friday, she said that I could be induced on March 11th. That's in a little over FOUR weeks! The baby will be full term by then. The doctor said that the last couple weeks of pregnancy will put even more strain on my back (thanks to the horse, my back isn't the strongest) and she will be out of town for the following two weeks.
At first it felt a little strange to know exactly when the baby will arrive but after talking to women who have been induced, they say it's great. This way we'll be more prepared. Also by having BabyRoos a week early, I will have more time with him before returning to work. I'm off track in March and didn't qualify for FMLA so I can only take off so much time of unpaid leave. I love the small miracles that seem to be making the arrival of this baby more and more meant to be every day. That's a blog all of it's own that I'll have to share some day.
I hope cold & flu season passes quickly and skips over you!
