We had the ultrasound pushed back to Dec 5th. Our doctor suggested we wait to get a better organ screening. I'm fine with that. It's all about patience.

I know I've been absent from spark this week. I've been battling a nasty cold. It is definitely going around so I hope you haven't caught it! It's miserable and lingers for days. I took Monday and Tuesday off work, which I hated. My sick leave is so precious right now. Hubby wanted me to take Wednesday off as well, but I insisted that I go in for at least half the day. So I did, but was exhausted just after 3 hours of work.

I'm in the office today and I'm feeling good! I'm trying to wean myself off sudafed today. So far so good. I was glad when I didn't need benedryl to help me sleep last ngiht. I hate using sleeping aids but sometimes you just need to sleep.

I'm getting ready for Thanksgiving! I will actually be having 2 thanksgivings this year, 1 on Saturday with my dad, brothers and their significant others, and the second on actual Thanksgiving with my friend and husband. It should be fun and hopefully low-key on both occassions.

As for my health overall, things are good. The pregnancy is going very well. I am a little worried about how this cold has affected the baby, but I'm trying not to make myself "sick" over it. I've felt the baby kick a few times today which is more than I have since Monday. So that's a good sign. I haven't been that hungry for the last few days, but I've been forcing myself to at least eat soup. It lunch time now. I'm not hungry at all but I feel like I should head to the cafeteria and at least try to eat a turkey sandwich or something. I'll go down and see what's appealing. Too bad they don't have fruit or veggies down there. How sad it that? And I work for the Dept. of Agriculture! *Facepalm*
