I’m drinking a virgin hot toddy (honey, lemon and hot water), hoping it will help with my sore throat and let me breathe a little more easily so I can catch some more winks. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
I had a feeling I might catch this cold from the rest of the fam’, but, for obvious reasons, I was really hoping it would pass me by this one time. So now my desires regarding this birth have shifted. Instead of wanting the lil guy to come out ASAP, I’m hoping he will stay in just until mommy feels a little bit better, rested and healthy enough to have a good labor and birth. I feel confident it will all work out as it should. It’s just this in-between sickliness and waiting part that puts a damper on the excitement of what’s to come.
In the meantime, I’m getting lots of Vitamin C – eating Clementine oranges (love those tiny, li’l things), drinking Emergen-C, making strawberry/OJ/yogurt smoothies – drinking lots of tea, and trying to stay rested. Other suggestions, as well as healthy thoughts, vibes, prayers welcome. Thanks, all. :) I’m off to try that sleepin’ thing again.
