Daily Diary: They Come Bearing Gifts (And I Have A Respiratory Infection)

I love how everyone is taking such an active role in my pregnancy. Last night, Natalie and Liam walked into my bedroom carrying ice water and vitamins. I thought it was so funny! My husband is PSYCHOTIC with pills. He has me on about 6 a day to help boost up my offerings to this baby inside of me. And did I mention I am NOT a pill person?! But I do it because it’s what best for Mr. C. We chose a name – and it starts with C. But we aren’t saying anything just yet.


And in other news, I have a respiratory infection. I suspected it was something serious. I’ve been sick for almost a week and it got pretty bad a few days ago. Thankfully, I only had a low grade fever for one night. I’ve been placed on the Z pack and am once again resting at home.

I go to the doctor every Thursday and treat myself to a trenta Starbucks. You know I sipped that puppy slowly so I could enjoy it. Man, I miss those daily treats. Soon enough!!

I’m getting off of bed rest in 2 weeks people!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How excited am I?! What a crazy and scary ride – but it was all worth it in the end. I can’t wait to meet my little man (and to go eat at Benihanna). LOL

  1. Great news Vera! So happy that everything is going good for you! Hope the respiratory infection goes away soon:) look beautiful and I love the coat:)

  2. I’m just now getting over that darn infection. I voted for the amoxicillin though instead of the zpack as I hate pills. lol. Hope you get better quickly, this takes a toll on you, especially pregnant.
