Catching a cold...

Blahhhhhh. This sucks. My head hurts. My face hurts (and if anyone says "Yeah, it's killing me!", I swear.... lol). I have like no appetite. I really don't want to be sick.

I've been sucking on vitamin C drops (I got the store brand and they're all citrus flavor so I have wicked heartburn. I'm gonna actually have to go get the Halls brand, because I'm pretty sure they make a watermelon flavor) and have been taking extra strength Tylenol every 4-6 hours.

I called my OB's office, and they said I could take Sudafed decongestant or Robitussin DM. I REALLY don't want to take any of that stuff while I'm pregnant, so I'm going to avoid it at all costs. I know I'm definitely not gonna take Sudafed- I took it exactly once in my life, and it made me angry as all hell. I have no idea why, but I was in a rage and my heart was pounding and it was scary! I may consider the Robitussin if this gets really bad, but I hope I don't have to. I hope I can fight it off enough with rest, fluids, a good diet, and vitamin c. I better go out and get some tissues. We don't have any in the house, and toilet paper is too rough.

I guess I'll just have to take it easy and rest and do a lot of snuggling with Fame (he always pushes the door open and comes in as soon as daddy leaves for work because he knows he's not allowed on the bed when daddy's home). He's such a big baby. Here's proof of how good of a snuggler he is:

Grrrr. Go away, cold!!!
