So remember in yesterday's post when I said I was "still not feeling too bad"? Forget that I said that, because yesterday and today I have felt like total and complete crap!
What I assumed were allergies rolled onto the scene on Sunday and quickly escalated by yesterday morning to a cold. A cold that would be much more manageable if my nurse had given me any other remedy option besides Tylenol. Blah.
And I'm not sure if it was due to the congestion or drainage or what, but yesterday also marked the first day that I legitimately thought I was going to throw up. As in, a co-worker held my hair back while I walked with a trash can to the bathroom just in case I didn't make it. But much to my disappointment, I never actually threw up, which is about as frustrating as needing to sneeze but not actually being able to do it (which I also experienced a few times yesterday).
Anyway, believe it or not, the point of this post is not to whine, but rather to (a) provide further material with which to guilt trip the twins one day, and (b) satisfy any of you that were secretly hoping I would experience at least some of the first trimester misery. So there you go.
Also, if anyone has any natural cold remedy suggestions, please send them my way!
