Sick at 39 weeks? Not so fun.

After a few days of a cough, sore throat and sinus pain/pressure progressively getting worse, I trekked to Urgent Care today to see what was up.  Turns out there’s an 80% chance it’s viral, but since I’m so close to labor and this is rendering me completely exhausted, the doctor prescribed an antibiotic to be safe.  Now I have an antibiotic for a UTI and an antibiotic for whatever might be settling in my lungs.  I can’t catch a break in the final few weeks of this pregnancy!

I can’t believe I didn’t get sick my entire pregnancy until now, when I could go into labor at any moment.  At this point, I’m worried about having a higher chance for a C-section because I don’t have any energy to get through labor.  Hoping I’ll get better really soon so that I’m ready for this little dude to make his arrival.

At the risk of sounding like I’m whining (because at this point, I’m too tired to care)…being 39 weeks pregnant is bad enough without throwing a nasty cold into the mix.  :-/
