About Me

What's My Deal? - - - There is so much to say, but I will give you the basics in regards to this blog. I am a Canadian 20 something woman married to a wonderful man, and we are the parents to our wondeful son who was born in the fall of 2010. As you will read, I am a supporter of breastfeeding, baby wearing, co-sleeping, cloth diapering, and so much more, but mostly learning about babies! Oh, and I also love reading blogs and playing jigsaw online!!! I blog to share things that I have learned, read, heard and experienced.

I Don't Have Immunity!!!

This pregnancy has brought me many things, and taught me many things.
One thing I have been given over and over, is illness.  The ALL DAY sickness has passed, and, and I get mini flus and colds over and over.  Friday just after noon the latest one started.  I ended up going to bed at 7:30pm, waking up late the next morning, all without food, so needless to say I was very weak, and the heat wafting through the house didn't help at all either!!! Alan was full of energy though, and got so much done around the house it was unreal!  He was like a machine.  I did manage to shower though and go to a bday party for a 2 year old, and then I just layed in my chair and watched crap TV all day!  Same for Sunday as well, other than the trip to Home Depot, Thyme, and Canadian Tire.

To make matters even worse, I was on edge all weekend, loosing valuable sleep over my ultrasound tomorrow!  I am so scared that I am going to have some mean old bitch who won't tell me the sex of the baby.  I know how things go down at the last place I went, but this is a different clinic this time, and I don't know what to expect.  I know that last time they allowed Alan in with me, and went through everything in detail.  She even let me pee part way through the ultrasound, which if you have ever been pregnant and forced to hold over 1 Litre of liquid in your bladder before, while laying on your back wth pressure applied to your tummy you can appreciate my praise when I was told to go for a pee and then come back!  Why wouldn't I come back though, I was in a freakin hospital gown!!!!!

It seems as though I have no control over what I feel either.  It is so pathetic really.  Why can I not just put my mind at rest and think of something else.  Even this morning, when Kobe came on the bed with me, he was so cute and so snuggled in with me, that normally I would wake Alan up to show him, but even Kobe can't lift my spirits on this one.  I wish I had more control over my mind and my emotions.

But ya, back to the original topic.  I hate being sick.  It is basically just me in the office this week, so I have to be here all day every day (except my appointment tomorrow).  My cough is so bad that this morning on the way to work I coughed so hard that I puked all over my seat and some of it even got on my leg.  EWWWWWW!!!

And, on another note, I think I am suffocating my boobs.  I finally broke down yesterday and bought new bras.  My nipples were always hanging out of the ones I had, and enough was enough.  I went to Thyme, as I had previously gone everywhere else and had no luck.
Well, I ended up buying 2, and they are so annoying.  It was okay in the store OF COURSE, but as I am wearing it today, it is so tight, the straps are so thick, the undwire is digging in between my boobs, and I just want to rip it off immediately.  What I want to find, are the bras I currently have and LOVE, just a size larger, but I can't find them anymore.

If anyone has any remedies or advice on how to treat a cold and cough while in my "condition", please do let me know!


  1. Which part of your bra is too tight? The around your body part or the cups? You could try one of these: http://www.lasenza.com/eng/products/bras/braaccessories/2-hook-bra-extender?30744-0064
    They should have told you about them in Thyme! I got some there, but I've also seen them at Motherhood Maternity and LaSenza!
    I used the Ricola cough drops when I had a cough and was pregnant!
    Feel better!

  2. I think it I make it looser around my chest, then it will fit better everywhere! I should try that!
    I will go and hunt out some Ricola at lunch!

    I LOVE bra extenders. I use them everyday. I use the Halls pomegrante cough drops andI like those. the strawberry ones aren't bad either but pomegranate is def. better.

  4. Your poor boobs! Why can't they make pregnancy bras look and feel nice too!? Isn't being pregnant known to enhance your senses so you'd think someone would make a maternity bra that's comfortable.
    It was probably made by a man. LOL
