We're still plugging along! That bout with the flu ended up having me feeling pretty rough for a while. I went back to work last Tuesday, though I probably should have stayed out at least another day. Today is truly the first day when I have felt NORMAL and had somewhat like a normal appetite. It really knocked me on my behind! Given all that, I'm still torn as to whether or not to take the H1N1 vaccine. The way I see it, I've already had the thing, so why should I be vaccinated? My doctor (and my husband) beg to differ. I can get a shot this week through the health department, so I'm praying about it right now. If I feel like the Lord is leading me to get it, I'll do it--otherwise I will follow what I think makes sense. I don't know a better way to determine what to do that as for His guidance!
I went to the doctor today, and by my calculations I've still only gained about 3 pounds! Woo hoo! He said that I was measuring right where I should, and though we didn't get a heart rate, the heartbeat sounded strong. My little baby doesn't want to stay still long enough for anyone to hear much by the Doppler!
How I'm feeling: I haven't been sleeping as well lately, but I did get me a body pillow today so I'm hoping that helps me get more comfortable. Like I said, I've felt pretty awful for almost 2 weeks, so now might not be the best time to ask! LOL I got sick several times over the flu period, which was really yucky since I had been feeling so much better. I'm wearing maternity clothes pretty much all the time now but am still able to get away with a few non-maternity shirts. I had to buy some better fitting bras! All in all, I can't complain! I'm just SO thankful that I'm getting over this awful flu!! I would appreciate any prayers you might could send my way concerning whether or not to get this vaccine.
I'll update again soon!
