At the end of last week I caught a cold, and for several days on top of waking up to pee I would wake up with a very sore throat and congestion. I was mostly sleeping in 2 hour chunks, and then having to go to work.
This morning, I woke up and just felt in my body that I had slept for longer. I looked at the clock and saw I had slept over 5 hours straight! Then after using the bathroom and clearing my congestion as much as I could, I went back to bed for another 4 hour stretch of sleep.
I feel better than I have in days! What a wonderful Christmas gift from Santa for this pregnant mama!
Also, an update on the blood pressure: I checked at home later that day and it was very healthy again. I checked yesterday evening and it was up again, though not quite as high as it had been on Monday. When I go and see the doctor tomorrow in going to be sure to get there early and relax, and we’ll see what happens. I’ll probably finish some more hospital and baby prep at home today just in case. I have a few more things to get ready, but we are just about there. Mostly I want to work on my quilt to finish it up!
Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season to all!
