39 Weeks and Sick as a Dog

May 9, 2007

The weather is absolutely glorious. Clear blue skies, trees in full leaf and bloom, birds chirping merrily.

Yet here I sit, swollen ankles and a box of tissues, wishing for all the world I could be the one taking my son to the playground today.

About a week ago, Tom and I both came down with … something. It acts like an allergy gone wild – itchy eyes, runny nose, itchy ears, cough. Only now my cough has gotten into my chest and is all infected. Yuck.

Tom is fine as long as he’s not around me. He plays with Pops and Gramma and has a fine time, but as soon as I enter a room he becomes a bawling ball of snot with a hacking cough. It’s lovely.

I can’t decide whether I just want the baby OUT, or if I want him to stay in until the pestilence is gone from my household. I am terrified of the baby getting a respiratory disease at such a young age.

I hope the rest of you are having a nicer spring.

    Oh, Goslyn. I am sorry you are so miserable. I understand your concerns about wanting to be healthy for your baby’s birth.

    I hope you recover soon. I’m glad to at least read an update because I’ve been wondering about you.

    Take care.

    That sounds dreadful, especially at 39 weeks pregnant. Hope you feel better soon!

    I’ve been thinking about you all week. I’m so sorry you are sick. It should be a rule, pregnant women should be immune from all illnesses, ESPECIALLY at the end. Get well soon.

    Wow. I don’t have anything as great as chocolate covered hugs to offer, but I know you will feel like a whole new woman very soon. I pray you will be well by delivery time.

    That is perfectly yuck-tastic. Being sick and extremely great with child and having a sick kid on the outside. Poor you. At least one of these illnesses will go away in a week or so…

    It’s funny to follow the pregnancies of blogging friends out there–their pregnancies seem to go by so much faster than my own ever did 🙂

    At least it’s faster watching from the outside than it is experiencing it for myself 🙂
