Now that my back pain and burn pain have subsided (thanks for your prayers, friends!), apparently my body thinks it's time for another "allergy attack-turned-cold-and-cough." I was sneezing like crazy, battling congestion, and now trying to get rid of a cough (which is only slightly productive, in case you wanted to know). Cough medications with "DM" on them are okay to take during pregnancy, but does anyone have any other suggestions??? I've almost finished a whole bottle of cough syrup, and I really don't feel like buying another. It's amazing how different this pregnancy is from my first. I really liked being pregnant the first time, I felt great for most of it, and I just looked like I shoved a basketball under my shirt. This one: VERY different! I feel yucky and uncomfortable, my belly is big already (I'm about 5 months along), and although I'm gaining weight at the same rate as with the first, I'm gaining it in different areas. (Oh, by the way: thanks, little brother, on the "Your butt looks big" comment. It did wonders for my self-esteem.) ;o)
Also, in case you were wondering, potty training really has it's ups and downs! We have great days, followed by days like today, where Peanut has wet her clothing 3 times, even when standing right next to the potty! I'm really not sure what to do or how to handle "accidents" like those. So, if you have any tips or feel like researching for me, I'd be soooo appreciative! :o)
Have a happy week!
