No Immune System

Friday, November 21st, 2008

I’m on Day 3 of almost-complete bedrest while trying to get over a really nasty cold that Jon gave me.  Well… not complete bedrest the first day because I had to go to Great Falls to see my FABULOUS Neurologist. I’d been playing message tag with her for three weeks and decided to just bite the bullet and go to see her.  (I was not disappointed.  Visits with her are like sitting at $tarbucks with a friend.)  She found something I could take for the really bad migraines that is pregnancy-safe (it’s basically Tylenol and caffeine) and she also gave me all the research she had been doing on pregnancy and migraines.  (I’m apparently her first pregnant patient.  This is actually not a bad thing because she’s researching all the current information instead of going off of whatever they would have told her when she trained to be an ARNP.)

Another plus: I got quite a bit of crocheting done on the Sea Monkey blanket while she and I visited.

Mostly, I’m just really frustrated because I’m not sleeping well and I think getting this cold is part of that as well as the pregnancy fatigue.  The Ambien that Dr. Awesome gave me isn’t working at the moment and I’m having coughing fits so I’m waking up frequently.

I do owe a big thank-you to Justin at Liberty Drug for transferring my prescription over today and filling it after I’d discovered that I only had a one-day supply left and wasn’t going to make it to my normal pharmacy.  It was a bright spot in my day.

Oh yeah… Heather from Dooce.Com is due a week before me.  The cats seem to be taking my pregnancy better than her daughter Leta is taking hers.

I’ve waited on creating wishlists because I don’t want to jinx my pregnancy but it was kind of fun to do yesterday.  I’m thinking that the main wishlist/baby registry will be at Target because they have an Amazon.Com crossover and whatever Target doesn’t have, I can put on the Amazon.Com one.

On the way to Conrad last night, I got a couple inches of the baby blanket done.  I’m pretty happy because it’s 1/3 to 1/2 of the way finished.  It will be nice to have it done!!

Being a Happy Hooker

This is my second day at home for “mental health” reasons (well… that and I’m still really dizzy) and I have spent it doing some crocheting (hence the title of this post), working on a design (or at least finding a theme I liked) for this site, and just resting.

I’m on my second skein of yarn for the sea monkey’s blanket.  I’m making it using Bernat Baby Coordinates Sweet Stripes yarn in Sprite Stripes (a green and white striping colorway) and crocheting it with a K hook.  I’m on my second skein of yarn already and I have found it to be very relaxing when I’m waiting for iTunes to cooperate or just listening to Catholic in a Small Town. I’ve also been working on the scarf for my secret pal at church which is made from novelty yarn and is a whole lot like crocheting a Muppet!

If I’m feeling up to it, I might take my crocheting to town tomorrow and sit in the window of the Prairie Peddler and just people-watch for awhile.
