That wonderful tidbit of lyricism is from my hubby who is a guest rapper on Killer Whale Party's new album which is coming out sometime next year. Get your copy reserved today...
Anyway, I'm feeling a bit better lately, just super emotional and moody and tired. Always cold and tired. Only a little morning sickness each day, now. There was a comment about why I don't use morning sickness remedies...well, some of them haven't really been working for me (horehound...which makes me sad because I love it so), peppermint has a very minimal effect and ginger makes me want to vomit even more. So I've been trying to eat small snacks all day long and drink lots and lots, and that seems to be helping. Also, I changed taking my vitamin from the morning with breakfast to right before bed, and that has helped tremendously.
So, Asher was in the hospital for a respiratory infection. I was feeling pretty guilty about the whole thing, Ry took him to the ER while I was working and then they checked him into the hospital, while I was working, and I felt really helpless and out of control. I went and saw him right after work and stayed with him until he feel asleep, but they said only one parent may spend the night with a child so I went home (Ry and I both decided that it's best for me to save up as much of my sick time as possible for maternity leave next year) and ry spent the next day with him in the hospital while I went to work. It was incredibly stressful and upsetting for me, especially with my super charged emotional state, and I have been feeling the residuals from it in the form of anxiety, exhaustion and listlessness.
Asher is going to the Dr. today for a follow up check up.
So, you know one thing I feel ripped off about? Pregnant women are not allowed (or not supposed to) eat lunch meat. Deli meat. Because it could be dangerous to your fetus. Listeria. You know...think about this...it means that most all deli meats (and hot dogs) are contaminated with Listeria on a regular basis and it's okay for everyone else to eat them. This should make some people question the food that they are fed that is considered "safe" for everyone else. Maybe old people shouldn't eat deli meat, either. Maybe the infirm? I don't want to go on a tirade about deli meats and hot dogs, other than the fact that, Fuck you mr. deli meat maker. Fuck you very much.
