First cold of the season already?!

Sorry I've been MIA. I've been in bed since Sunday night....sick with a darn head cold. It's only September! Grrr... And I can't take anything strong enough to make me feel better. I could really use a bottle dose of NyQuil....but I'm settling for some Robitussin DM and a Neti Pot. Have you heard of those? I hadn''s a strange thing. Kinda this isn't me. I'm not that thin and I would never take a picture of myself doing this, it was bad enough to look at myself in the mirror while doing this. It's the kind of thing where you need to lock the door just in case your husband pops in.
Anyways, so I've been sick. Sick enough that my husband has had to take off work to be with Jack. Normally this would go great. But he has a crazy week month months ahead of him and so being at home makes it that much the little man has been a wee bit extra attached to Mommy lately and often can be heard yelling for me. AND he's been a royal grump...kinda pushing buttons...but he's 2, so what do you expect?!
I'm really hoping tomorrow I wake up feeling a million times better. I'd love some prayers in that direction :)

Babies are movin' here and's such little bubbles still I freak if it's been more than a couple days since I've felt it. But I keep reminding myself it's amazing I already feel them having just hit the 15 week mark Monday!

On that note, here's a little update thingy...and I'm off to bed again (after another date with my neti pot...oh joy) The fresh air from the living room felt great.

-How far along? 15 weeks and 2 days!

-How big are the babies? Softballs!

-Weight gain/loss? I'm only getting weighed at my Dr my last appt I had lost 3lbs from my 9 week appt but about 12lbs from pre-pregnancy. I've felt so much better lately, so I'm thinking I'm gonna start gaining here soon!

-Maternity clothes? oh yes :)

-Sleep? not so great.

-Best moment this week? feeling little bubbles :)

-Movement? yes

-Food cravings? Mike and Ikes this week :)

-Gender? Not sure :) 5 more long weeks....

-Labor signs? none.

-Belly button in or out? in.

-What I miss? this week it's NyQuil

-What I am looking forward to? 2 weeks for our next appt and then the appt after that is when we find out what they are!!

-Weekly wisdom? nadda

-Milestones? not any I can think head is in a cloud.
