Naps Cure All

Saturday, October 26, 2013

Yesterday I sucked it up and got a flu shot emoticon . I avoid "voluntary" shots like the plague, but it is for the baby - not me. My doctors recommended it, so it was a non-option for me. Apparently creating a baby wears your immune system down immensely, so you are especially prone to getting sick.

After my shot I went to try on random maternity jeans at stores - just to start to get a feel for which places I like the styles. I purchased a pair of blue jeans with a full panel and black skinny jeans with a full panel. Thankfully, neither of them "look" like maternity jeans. I put them on and asked my husband what he thought, he liked them (he didn't know they were maternity jeans until I showed him). He's a brutally honest guy, so he would have told me if they looked funky. I'm not sure how big I will get throughout the winter, but I am hoping to avoid buying a maternity coat.

Last night I hung out with my husband and his three friends. We went out to eat and went bowling afterwards emoticon . I drove, so it gave me the perfect excuse to not drink. I didn't bowl - just watched...and laughed. We didn't get home until late, and I ended up in bed at 1:30am. emoticon

This morning I was so tired when I woke at 9:30am that I felt hungover (even though - obviously I didn't drink). I had a terrible headache and mild nausea. I went back to bed while my husband ran errands with his mom. I didn't wake again until 12:30. I had a headache and was slightly queasy the rest of the day. My husband made a fire in the hearth for me, I read my book, cuddled in a cozy blanket, and finally took a nap at 4:00-5:30pm. The nap helped - unfortunately though I just didn't feel up to exercising today. I'll count today as my "day of rest" and do my exercising tomorrow. I am crossing my fingers that nausea starting already doesn't mean I'm in for the same heavy nausea I experienced last time.

Update: Here is a photo of our fireplace while it is going - obviously this is from Christmastime last year :-)

    Perfect excuse not to drink... I thought being pregnant did that.

    Nausea sucks! Hopefully, it's not from the flu shot. I too, avoid voluntary shots! Every time I ever got the flu shot, I got sicker than if I had not.

    Wait, you have a real fire place!? I want pics! Bet that is just lovely! Not a fan of my gas fireplace, but it's better than not having one!

    I still suggest looking at second hand places for mat stuff. Sure it's not brand new, but sometimes, you can find steals! and they look just as great!

    Hope the ill feeling passes quickly!
