No Immune System

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.
