I recently came down with a cold. It started off with a tickle in my throat and turned into a cough and has now progressed into a lovely head cold, complete with watery eyes and stuffed nose. As a preger, I picked up some Grapefruit Seed Extract and Zinc lozenges at Wholefoods last night. I've also been eating flaming hot cheetos puffs as a spicy food (does that sound right, Carr?) and drinking a LOT of fluid. Please pray this will pass quick! I'm not as grogy as I have been so that's good, but am not 100% yet.
Pregnancy: Going great! I've been feeling the little one moving often. It's not to the point where it can be felt from the outside, but it's nice to know he (or she) is alive and doing well! I don't go to the midwife until September sometime. I already went on a hunt for some more maternity clothes since last time was a different season.
As far as housing, we're still stuck as to whether to rent or buy. We figured out that we CAN afford a house, just gotta find something cheaper than what we originally thought...like $50,000 cheaper, which may end us in a condo. We'll see. Whatever happens, we need a bigger place before January and I really don't want to unpack during labor.
We're planning for Karrots' birthday party at the end of the month. Luau! My mom is so excited about the theme she's gone and found where we can get a whole pig. I'm thinking that may cause a lot of grossing out (for me!) so we may need a sheet to cover it's head or something. We're also going to do Hawaiian BBQ chicken and need to figure out the rest of the dishes. I'm thinking something with pineapple. My mom also got a BUNCH of decorations from a friend and we purchased some lais and kiddie baggie stuff. (All this and I can't believe she's going to be one!!)
