Sick Day

I finally gave in ... and called in sick.
Tylenol isn't helping. Halls aren't helping. I'm not sleeping.
And, I just couldn't face a train ride and then sitting at my desk all day.
So - I'm logging in from home to work. And, when I'm done what I have to do I'm sleeping. And taking it easy. And eating some soup.
I'm trying to decide if it's worth my effort to get dressed and go to a walk-in clinic because I know my sinuses are infected. But, I'm not sure if they can do anything other than tell me to sleep and eat soup.
Oh - and I don't have the car today, so I'll have to ask my mom or sister to bring me. And though I'm sure they would if I called it still means talking on the phone with no voice and a headache.

Ugh.

Sorry. Usually I'm way more upbeat on my blog. It's just hard when everything hurts. I swore I would not be like this when I'm pregnant. What's wrong with me?

So, let's review what I'm happy about:

  • Christmas is coming. Yay!
  • Next week is Matt's daycare Christmas party - love that!
  • Despite the fact that I feel like complete crap the baby inside me is growing and healthy!
  • Matthew makes me smile every single day
  • I'm almost done my Christmas cards. The only people left are the people who I didn't have addresses for and I'm slowly getting those addresses.
  • I have a cold now which could quite possibly mean I'll be healthy for Christmas
  • I have more vacation days left than I thought - this means that I can take the time off I've booked at Christmas and then take a couple of extra days or transfer them over to next year.
Okay - I'm off to make some decaf tea in hopes of at least feeling a little better.

Oh, you poor thing! There is nothing worse than being pregnant and sick. I had one doozy of a chest cold that turned into walkin pneumonia when I was arund 5 months. And I remember coughing and coughing and wanting to die. So, I really hope you feel better.

I did go to the doctor and they gave me antibiotics and an inhaler, and I and the baby were fine. Some antibiotics like amoxicillin and penicillins are safe in pregnancy so it might be worth a trip to the doctor.

My sympathies - I've had many a sinus infection - especially when I was pregnant. They can give you an antibiotic - not a strong one, but one nonetheless. If you need a ride, let me know - I'm here and Riley's in school all day. (((HUGS))) and let me know if you need anything!

You probably should go to the walk-in. If it is an infection, it needs to be treated.

Feel better soon. Colds are nasty. Colds when you're pregnant are just plain mean.
