SickyPuff

The problem with being pregnant before is that you know what it feels like to be pregnant. Although we've all been told every pregnancy is different--it's hard not to compare.  That's exactly what I've been doing--comparing.
I'm either at 13/14 DPO depending on who is counting.  I thought about testing today but I'm sick at home.
I woke up yesterday with a scratchy, itchy sore throat and found myself sucking on Vitamin C drops all day.  Later that afternoon I developed a headache...the headache that usually comes before AF... except then I realized I also got a headache before I found out I was pregnant.  So, headaches and sore bb's are completely useless indicators of if one is pregnant or about to bleed.
I went to acupuncture last night thinking it would probably help my headache at least and not only was it the worst session I think I've ever had, my head was pounding when I left.
Canceling the plans I'd had to go see a friend, I went home and stood in the kitchen at 7:30 totally convinced I might die.
Breaking down I finally took Tylenol and thank G*d starting feeling some sort of relief.  I even managed to eat dinner and drink some lemon tea before collapsing into bed.

This morning I could care less to test--it's the last thing I'm thinking about.
I've been laying in my bed with the cats most of the day with a heating pad on my back because it feels like it's breaking.
My ears hurt, my head is stuffy, my throat is dry, I have a fever and I need a massage.
This is when it sure would be nice if the other puffer came home at night.  I miss her.
Thank G*d I live in NYC where you can get delivery for anything and never leave the house.
Now where can I get a massage lady to come over who is not going to try to give me a h.appy ending...

Oh no, that sounds awful. Take good care of yourself and get lots of delivery.

aw that's no good - hope you're feeling a little better by now and you managed to track down a massage!
On another note - we love the amazing race, and secretly hope we'll see a team looking lost so we could help (not that that's likely to happen AT ALL, I think they've only been here twice and it's not that small a country lol)

Take care of yourself and just rest as much as possible! I hope your honey comes home soon and gives you a back massage.
