Hating Cold and Flu Season

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:33 am by chasingtoddlermom

I know I’ve been a slacker lately.  Well, just in blogging, due to the fact that I don’t have a chance to slack off in much else!  Little Ro’ and I came down with a nasty cold on Sunday.  It hit hard and fast.  LR has been sick but not tired–what’s that all about?  And cold medicines make him SOOO wired.  I’ve been sticking to Delsym for his cough.  That works without the crazy side effects, but doesn’t solve the cold symptoms.  He has a cough and runny nose, so we really can’t go anywhere (i.e. tumbling today) to help me keep my sanity, but he’s bouncing off the walls.  After awaking at 6:45 with the energy of the Roadrunner, he fortunately took a long nap.  I’m hoping for a repeat tomorrow (or, I guess that’s today now), although not the 6:45 am thing.  Our colds mean I will miss another day at the gym tomorrow!  I’ve already had to miss once for this cold and I’m dying to get back.  This has been such a horrible cold and flu season.  I’m really ready for winter to be over.

Anyway, enough about that.  I’m glad to say that I really have nothing to report about baby #2.  I had a checkup yesterday and–knock on wood–I’m officially feeling like a low-maintenance pregnant woman as I enter my third trimester.  I am truly grateful to have no drama in that area of my life.  I think I must have been pretty naive last time around because I don’t remember feeling this acutely aware of everything that could possibly go wrong.  I have to admit, though, that I’m waiting to see how the Pregnancy Gods will get me!  We’ll see!

On a random note–I sliced of the edge of my index finger with the potato peeler this week.   That’s what I get for making dinner!  I’ve never had such a bad cut.  It bled for about a day and a half.  But I’m happy to report that it is healing freakishly fast!  I’m not kidding–I feel a little like a freak of nature.  It literally decreased in size by 50% over the course of the day today.  My dr has me cleaning it with iodine and sealing it with liquid band-aid.  That must be doing the trick!  Although I think I’ll be missing about half a fingerprint.  Hmmm…maybe it was intentional.
