I know I haven't been there for you

I apologize I have not been there for my blog friends. I'm reading people's posts, saving them to respond to later and not getting around to it. I'm sorry if you haven't seen me comment lately but I promise I'm watching out for you praying things are going well and getting better.

I feel guilty a lot lately. Between lack of energy then winding up with an upper respiratory infection and getting put on antibiotics, I haven't had the energy to do much. From blog commenting to painting rooms I need to. I hope every one understands and I promise I will be responding to every one soon!! I'm always thinking about every one.

Stupid cold

Four days ago I wound up getting sick, the unfortunate part of having a kiddo in school - always getting sick. Thankfully he recuperates quicker then I do, in fact he's pretty much over it aside from a cough that lingers. My body lets it linger and get worse. Two nights ago I wound up with a 101 degree fever, which I know it isn't good when you're pregnant. Eventually we did get it to break, thankfully. However I'm still coughing up a storm - hacking up a lung or two and I hurt... all over. So I called my ob/gyn yesterday and now I'm on antibiotics to deal with the issue. I'm thankful for that, hopefully I can get over it really soon. My mom is 100% sure I have an upper respiratory infection. She's had her fair share of them, and I'm positive she's correct with the way I've been reacting.

Honestly I'm tired (you should have saw what I typed instead of "tired" - I was a few letters off which tells you how exhausted I am). I woke up at 5 am yesterday morning and never did get back to sleep, although my lovely DH let me try sleeping in the middle of the day (only semi-successful). This morning has kind of been the same way, although I was able to kind of get back to sleep for an hour or two.

I'm hoping this cold will be over soon, and hoping nothing bad is happening to the baby. I'm praying it doesn't hurt the little bean. Until I get better, all my plans to get things done are on hold.

Thanks for all those who suggested different nausea remedies! Is it odd that a few days later my nausea finally settled down? It's definitely a relief. It still show it's head now and then (everything I eat besides ice cream sounds bad) but it's not as intense now. I just wish food sounded more appealing.

Nausea remedy?

Does any one have any good nausea remedy suggestions? Willing to try anything!! As long as it can be safely done while pregnant, that is.

I don't puke, thankfully, but my nausea seems to be getting worse. In fact I have so many food aversions this is the list of things so far I crave and/or do not get nausea from eating:

french fries
ice cream

Sounds like a very "healthy" list, doesn't it? LOL. Sadly when I eat these, I feel better. So far I've tried a variety of other meals that have been failures. I love their taste, but instant nausea. I'm still trying different recipes to rule out what I can eat without issue (tomorrow probably will be chicken quesidillas, hoping that goes over well).

Other wise.. what has helped your nausea? Any tips? I'd appreciate it.
