Rough Start to Week 40

My due date is actually 2 days away, but being Sunday I look at it like the start of week 40 of my pregnancy. Unfortunately, things are slowly getting worse. Again, lots of contractions in the evening but they seem to simmer away as I relax. That I can live with, my body is just practicing. What I can’t take right now is the fact that I may be sick. :-(

Just the other day I was thinking to myself, “wow, it’s been a bad year for people getting colds and the flu, yet somehow I managed to make it an entire winter illness free, all while pregnant.” The shocker is I’m the one that usually has a few colds, and at least one case of strep throat every year. Well, I must have jinxed myself because yesterday I noticed my throat feeling tender. Today it’s worse and I woke up to liquid projectiles coming from all parts of my body and feel like a I got ran over by a truck…twice. All I wanna do is lie down and force down some vitamin C and chicken soup but there’s still so much to be done around the house.

It’s sad to say, but now I’m actually hoping Emmaleigh waits a few extra days so I can feel better.

    Cat, I hope that you can avoid getting sick! Are you allowed to take Cold-Eeze? Those always work for me…

    Get better soon and I can’t wait to see pictures of your new princess!

    OH NO! Go get some sleep! I woke up this morning with a headache and sore throat…took a bit of a nap and I feel a little better.

    I think you need to take it easy! Eat some oranges and rest! :) I hope baby waits for you to feel all better too…it wouldn’t be as much fun if you’re feeling like poo!

    I’ll be thinking about you!

    Cat, I hope you feel better!
    I hope Emmaleigh gives you a few days to get better! Please rest, rest, rest!! Don’t worry about the house stuff! Most importantly you get to feeling better.

    Emmaleigh is such a pretty name. I used forms of Lee in 3 of my five daughters names. (LeAnna, LeAshley, and Ryleigh) :) Thinking of you during this most exciting time! :)

    Awww I’m so sorry to hear that your coming down with something. Its so going around. ANd with your due date so close it makes it worse. hopefully your little one will hold off atleast for 4 days or so til’ that cold is on its way out. How terrible to go through labor and then have to wear a mask to take care of a newborn. HUGS> GET WELL SOON.

    Oh Cat, I am sorry you are feeling bad =( I hope you feel better before Emmaleigh decides to arrive. I will be praying for you.

    Baby girl, Cat, I’m really thinking it’s that young’in sucking everything it needs to make the grand entrance, and as soon as that happens, physically speaking, you will snap back to your healthy self! You feel sick now, but I would like to think it will go away! Hang in there girly girl!

  8. says

    Oh no! Try to rest as much as you can. ( I know there a a million things you want to get dome before the little one arrives.) I am thinking of you and hoping for a safe and healthy delivery!

    Girl I feel for you I delivered my third child with pink eye because my 2 babies at home had it and I had contacted it as well. I could not touch my newborn baby daughter without wearing gloves so I do feel for you

    Unfortunately, I know exactly what your going thru. I’ve just gotten over a sinus and double ear infection. Finally feeling mostly better but UGH… still coughing like crazy.

    Good luck hun!

    What timing! Hope you get to feeling better soon and that your little girl waits a little longer before making her arrival. Good luck!!
