So in just 6 short days my little man will be here. He's been causing quite a few problems and pain today. Didn't sleep to good last night. But I think that had more to do with the fact that I am now getting a cold. I am stuffed up and coughing. Not sure how I'm going to get rid of it before he arrives. I just hope that I do not get him sick. That would be no good. Anyway, I had a bunch of contractions this morning and early afternoon, but they keep coming and going. They just refuse to stick around! If it wasn't for my husband massaging my back for 20 min before he had to leave for work, I would still be in unbearable pain!
The other two kids still are not getting better. They have each had a cough for about 3 weeks now. I took them to the dr on Mon and was told that they both have some seasonal allergies. So, we are now having to give them Claritin every night before bed until we get our first frost. And with the the crazy weather we've had this year, who knows when that will be. They are also taking amoxicillin to help them get over it faster and so they are not contagious with anything when we bring the baby home. My poor daughter tells me almost every day now that she feels like shes dying. I don't know how to make her feel better. I hate feeling so helpless.
Today I found out that my mom and sister are on a trip to upper michigan to get some much needed mother/daughter time. I wonder if she realizes at all how much she is hurting me. I'm sure they do need the time, but what about me? Everyday I am feeling like I don't matter more and more. I try not to think about it too much because I know I need to focus on taking care of myself and the baby. But stupid facebook seems to keep rubbing it my face.
