The Sniffles

The in I have them.  The Little Guy was a little congested over the weekend and said he had a scratchy throat.  Well, wouldn't you know that Tuesday afternoon I started to get that same feeling.  I feel pretty much like dog poo.  I'm still at work.  Why, you may ask?  Because at this time of year (election time) there is a bit of a contest as to who comes to work the most and who works longer.  It's ridiculous, really.  And I hate it.  Thankfully the election is almost here and I can stop working the over time and actually stay home if I feel sick.

Remember the other day when I mentioned how tired I was?  I think it was because of this cold I have.  All I want to do is sleep, sleep and sleep some more.  I was hoping it was one of those phantom pregnancy symptoms that I could look back on and say, "oh, that's why I was so tired...I'm pregnant!"  I'm not getting my hopes up too much on that one, though.  I'm on CD20 so AF will be here within the next 3 to 8 days.  Since I don't have a regular cycle anymore it's really hard to judge.  I will have to pay attention to how much people are getting on my nerves to know how close she is.

My temps are still above the coverline and I'm happy about that.  Yesterday was 98.3 and today was 98.5.  I'm wondering if that is also because of this cold.  Maybe I have a slight fever?  I'm hoping not.  I'm hoping that my progesterone is fine and doing it's job.  Maybe increasing because there's a baby in there!

We bought some stuff at the Halloween store to decorate the porch and haven't put any of it up yet.  How sad is that?  I'm hoping to tomorrow when I get home from work.  Our neighbors right next to us have lights up so now we have to get ours up.  You know how it works.  We already have a competition planned for Christmas decorating.  Good grief, I'm a Suburbanite.  Yikes!

Aww, I'm sorry you're sick :(. 'Tis the season, I guess, but that sucks that you can't take off of work right now. Hopefully you can get some rest this weekend!
Have you been keeping track of your luteal phase? Even if you ovulate on a different cycle day every month, usually the luteal phase doesn't change. Mine have been pretty consistent at 13 or 14 days for the last year.
That's too funny about the neighborhood contest for decorating! We used to drive into town every year when I was a kid to visit two different neighborhoods who had competitions - we'd drive through in our big van in our pajama's pointing and squealing at our favorite houses. That was one of my favorite holiday traditions :).

Not to make the end of your two week wait crazy, but I have heard of cold symptoms being PG symptoms.
