Summer Sickies

I have been sick for an entire week now with bronchitis. I hate taking medicine when I'm pregnant, but my midwife doesn't want it turning into pneumonia. I figured it would be better to take some mild OTC stuff now than get really sick and have to take more potent drugs later. I don't know where I got this because the rest of my family seems completely healthy. Unless, you count Goldie's weird eye infection. It's not pink eye and is doing much better now that she is also on antibiotics. So, we're going to finish our weekend of trying to rest and get better. Her surgery is in less than two weeks and I want her to stay healthy! I'm stocking up on popsicles and applesauce.

I hope you feel better soon. I managed to make it through my first two pregnancies without medication, but I wasn't so lucky with the third. I'm sure you being as safe as you can be while still taking care of yourself. Get some rest!!
