Olives (or Grapes) and Graduations

Well, the little bean is now olive (or grape - depending on your source) sized and chugging along. Nearly an inch in length and growing like a weed! I'm starting to feel that in my waistbands too. Thankfully, I was able to snag two brand new Bella Bands for an unbelievable $28 from eBay. I am hoping they will help me stay in my pre-pregnancy clothes as long as possible! It kills me to look at my closet and think about how badly I could use a few pairs of work pants... but I just DON'T want to spend money on any clothing right now!

In any case, Baby G also graduated this week; we have survived the Embryo stage and the little one is now cosidered a Fetus. Yay for little steps forward! Only 9 more days now until I get to see them via ultrasound. I really CAN NOT WAIT!

You know, it's amazing the things you take for granted in life. Like the ability to take NyQuil when you feel like crap. Oh I miss it! I've been fighting with a cold since Friday (when I woke up with a sore throat) and I haven't been sleeping well on account of it. Last night I decided to take a chance and take one Tylenol PM before I went to bed; I REALLY needed the sleep! That put me right out, but I woke up at 2 am and spent the next hour tossing and turning. I was going to get up and go downstairs, but Shaun insisted I stay put. I did manage to get back to sleep, although the persistent tickle in my left nostril (as ridiculous as that sounds) kept waking me up. By most accounts I am OK to take Benadryl right now so I may go buy some of that to help me sleep tonight. I'll never get better if I can't rest! The green tea with honey will only do so much...

... Um... is there something you haven't told me... "THEM"????

Anyway... my savior for sinus issues was NeilMed... I found it at Walgreens (rite aid/CVS type store ~ though you could probably find it in a grocery store with a pharmacy)... It's a sinus rinse (basically water with a little salt). Totally fine for pregnancy and helps SOOOO much! I love it! Good Luck!

Hahaha! I can hope... I use "them" because "it" just doesn't feel right. I know, I'm a weirdo.
