Sick Day

Well, I got quite a bit done yesterday with sewing, but ran out of fabric! The yardage chart must be wrong on the pattern envelope because I didn't have near enough fabric- shoot! I could have finished one whole dress too!

Today I woke up sick. I've been battling sinus/allergy whatever for going on three weeks now, and this morning I felt pretty bad. My dear husband has looked up all different home remedies and doctored me up, because if I go to a doctor, either they will do nothing for me and I will have spent my money for nothing, or they will give me antibiotics or some other high powered drug that I do NOT want to take.

So, I am taking colloidal silver, apple cider vinegar, honey with lemon juice, he is getting me Emergen C packets and fresh thyme to make a tea out of, and I'm supposed to eat some cayenne at some point :) I feel better since I took some Tylenol for the headache, but man!

I have been sick so many times since I've been pregnant- highly unusual for me. I've been reading up on it and I guess my immune system just needs more help than normal since my body is nourishing a baby as well. Too many fires going huh? Soooo, I'm just going to have to be more diligent about caring for my body than I have been. I mean, I eat fairly well, could do better, but I'm doing better than most everyone I know.

My husband and I have been talking about getting some more supplements, like good vitamins and fish oil, yet we haven't actually done it. Guess we need to get them now and quit talking!

Sorry to hear you are sick. Sounds like you have a great natural remedy though. You'll have to let us know how it worked for you. Do you take prenatals? I've had read good luck with Rainbow Light Complete Prenatal. I tell ya, two pregancies and durations of nursing allow me to swear by those things. I get them from vitacost.com pretty cheap but most local healthfood markets have them too. I am on third pregnancy and they are still doing right by me. They are powerful and potent. Just thought I would pass that along if you haven't found something you love yet.
