I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

What a hell of a week

Now I have a wicked cold, all of a sudden! My husband has been feeling a little congested and this AM I wake up with a cough! Throughout the day it's gotten worse and worse. Not good timing for sure. I'm monitoring my temperature and will stay home tomorrow to rest. All this coughing is really bothering my midsection as well! I'm trying to stay hydrated and eat good, healthy foods. I feel miserable and must admit I'm a little scared.

Please say some prayers for my blogging friend Eileen. We are IVF "twins" and I am mourning her loss today. I couldn't believe her blog when I read it. She is a fellow infertility sister and we should all send her some loving words.

I am sorry you have had such a stressful week. Get LOTS of rest and call in sick as many times as you need to.

I hope you can get some good rest and snuggles with Stitch!

Your week has been terrible. Try and take it easy. Take care of yourself and that little one inside of you right now. Like Jeanne said. Get PLENTY of rest and use that GET OUT OF WORK card until pigs fly :-)
