Pretty miserable...

So, what's worse?! Morning sickness or hacking up a lung? I think it's up for debate. It's the first year I've actually remembered to get a flu shot and I've been so sick this year. At church on Sunday, I remember sitting in sacrament meeting, listening to a choir of coughing throughout the congregation, so I pretty much knew it was inevitable. Shortly thereafter, I came down with a really sore throat, which then progressed to the "sounds like I'm faking it" dry cough, which doesn't sound so bad, but makes your chest and throat just ache. I felt a little better yesterday, then woke up this morning feeling miserable....super congested, sore throat, coughing up a lung. Needless to say, I did not go to work and have spent the day drinking orange juice, eating popsicles and watching re-runs of Oprah and Ellen. Good times, good times... So, friends, there is my excuse for not blogging. Well, that, and the morning-noon-and-night sickness, which I'm still optimistically hoping will end sometime in the next little while! I promise as soon as I'm feeling better I'll post something really fabulous (or something...).

Oh Holly, that sucks! I swear there is nothing worse than getting sick while you're pregnant. It seems like I got sick (besides my morning, noon, and night sickness)a lot when I was pregnant with Mia. Sorry you're feeling so miserable. It'll get better soon enough...until you hit your third trimester, hahaa! Enjoy your second trimester while it lasts. Miss you!

Ugh, that sucks Holly! Especially because you can't take the tried and true Nyquil when you are pregnant. So you just lay there sick day after day.

Hey, if you click on the orange bar on the top of my blog there are hundreds of free blogs. You will have to write down all your links on the side bar because they DO erase. I just wrote everyones blog addresses down and re-added them. It didn't take too long! Let me know if you need any more help =)

So sorry babe to hear that your sick. I think we are on a sick free streak of three weeks so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. And it does suck being sick and Pregnant because you can't take anything that might make you feel half way normal. Take it easy.

This to will pass!
Now that I have this little bundle of baby I have to say that it is worth all of it and in a blink of an eye it will be all over and you will have the sweetest baby on your hands!
Eat everything, cry all the time and shop. That is the only way you seem to get through it all. Do it with a great pair of shoes!!
Get better soon!

Um, so now aren't you glad that your job is so flexible and if you don't feel up to going to work, you really don't have to! I'm so sad for you. I think I need to come out and take care of you...trip to So Cal!
