I’ll admit to having fallen behind here for the last couple of weeks, but I can explain. I haven’t forgotten about you. I’m not going to stop posting regularly. I’ve just been feeling under the weather. A couple of weeks ago, I started to develop a sinus infection, which I tried to fight naturally. I know that most of them are viral and just have to run their course anyway so I wanted to avoid taking an antibiotic. Plus, I’m trying to stay super natural during this pregnancy. As you can see, I finally gave in and got some antibiotics. I spent two weeks treating with a humidifier, neti pot, DoTerra breathe formula, keeping my head elevated, and steam. It was working. I was getting better. Then I reached the plateau. I suddenly wasn’t progressing anymore. My chest was getting tight. It wasn’t worth waiting to see if it were going to turn into bronchitis or worse so I bit the bullet and requested an antibiotic from the midwife. I still feel pretty gross and sleepy, but I am definitely on my way to recovery. My face feels way better.
On top of getting antibiotics, I switched prenatal vitamins. I decided to go with an all natural food based vitamin. I’ll explain all about it in a post later this week, because I am waiting to see how much of a difference that makes for me. I look forward to telling you about the journey as we figure out what really works for me.
As for the rest of today, I’m going to get some photos so that this week will be set up for the rest of the week. Other than that I’m going to attempt to get a little more rest and recover.
