Blah, blah, blah

I'm 23w1d.

I've been really tired.

I'm going on my 4th week of this cold/cough. It's very old and annoying. It's worst at night. I get so stuffy and can't breath. I cough half the night and am not sleeping well as a result. I'm barfing up flem. Even benedryl really hasn't helped to dry me up so I have mostly not used it. Steam baths/showers, the humidifier, and Vicks Vapo only help marginally and for short durations.

I feel like I need a few more hours in the day and a few more hours of sleep a night.

I'm behind at work.

I was on-call all week for jury duty and got called in today the last day. We sat around all day in the jury room, then got called to the courtroom at 3 pm. We all have to go back on Monday until they finish jury selection. I'm in chair 18 right now. If I get into the box, I almost never get sent home. Sigh. The only good news is that is supposed to be a short trial.

I feel like I'm constantly hungry, but can't really find food that's appealling or that I want to eat. I just stare into the fridge, freezer, or pantry waiting looking for something to seem worth the effort. Usually nothing does and either I just don't eat or end up with a yogurt or cereal. Although, I think I have become addicted to these Lipton Green Tea with Citrus drinks. But, have also been going through the water by the case. Yes, a waste of money, but when pregnant I really only like the taste of Kirkland's Filtered/Bottled Drinking water.

I looked at my calendar and the first date I can find where I even have a chance of doing that 3 hour diabetes test is 5/12. I can find 3 hours in the afternoon, but they want fasting and I just can't go that long without food so need to do it in a morning, which is very difficult with my job right now.

Oh, Debbie. I cannot BELIEVE you have jury duty! If you get in the box, push your tummy out as far as you can and make sure all the attorneys think you could go on bed-rest any minute! Not true, but gee whiz! You just don't need any more hassles right now! I'm so sorry.

Love, Laura
