Nuffy Node

Well, I guess my body decided now would be a good time to get a head cold. I haven't had one in over 2 years, and I finally get one when I'm pregnant. I've been feeling great, pregnancy wise. Now I have this cold and I can't sleep. Poor Rob is suffering from what seems like allergies. He has been severly congested since September. I feel so bad for him. I feel bad for me to because I have to endure his frustrations and grumpy mood since he doesn't feel good. Both of us had to sleep elevated tonight because we'd both start coughing. It obviously didn't work too well for me since it is 5 am and I'm up typing on the computer.

I am going to go to Wal-Mart later and get us an air purifier. I have been telling Rob about it for a few months now, and he has managed to put me off... until now. I think there is something about our room that is causing us to be congested. It seems to me that ever since the hurricanes, our room has a different smell or feel. I can't place it and neither of us can find it. Rob even pulled up the corners of the carpet to see if there was any mold. Everything was dry as a bone.

On a lighter note, I got the results back from my Hcg levels. The first test came back at 617 and the second came back at 1474. I also had a progesterone reading of 29.7 and they like to see anything over 12. My numbers were great and it made me feel comforted to know everything is going well.

I wish I could sleep. This is night two of crappy sleep. My cold started in my throat, went to my nose and clogged my head and ears. Now it seems to be moving to my chest. I wish it'd just move out completely. Ah well, it will soon enough.

Jessica, at Dr. Loy's office, gave me a list of medications I can take during pregnancy. The list included Sudafed. I took some last night and it didn't seem to do much good. I think I'll just stay away from it then.
