"Tis an ill wind that brings nobody any good"

In the last 3 months I've had at least 7 illnesses. It all started with the flu. Thank heavens we all had our seasonal and swine flu shots! I think maybe my immune system took an extra hit after that one, because I've since had pneumonia twice, (which I currently am gettting over), numerous colds, a strange leg infection... I've been on 3 separate courses of antibiotics. It's really not so bad being pregnant, it has actually been pleasant. Being sick and pregnant is a little different, but I feel very fortunate that I haven't had to be hospitalized. It's scary getting sick when you've got asthma, let alone when you have asthma and are pregnant. It's a good time to count my blessings, for sure.
We are so excited for our little one to come. I hope she waits a few days until I've recovered, though!

so when are you due? i hope you are better and that the baby will come when you are not sick. i can't imagine being sick and to be in labor... that would be horrible! anyhow, get lots of rest!

I was due on the 10th, so I hope she comes soon now! I feel a lot better, but maybe my body says I need more rest. We'll see!

Wow, I didn't realize you were so close! Good luck - you'd better get better before you have the baby, no repeats of your adventure with Amelia!!

Hey I wanted to send my sympathies about your labor. I can't imagine how you got through that. You are an amazing woman, and an outstanding mom. I wish you and your little girl a speedy recovery
