So I wake up to a lot of drainage and a sore throat. I've been sneezing all day and having to constantly blow my nose. Now my ears have a dull ache in them and it seems like my throat is getting worse.
Ugh. I am pretty sure it is most likely just the pollen stuff going on right now...but still isn't what I want to feel like when having a baby soon! or hoping to have a baby soon anyway haha.
I am contemplating not going to work tomorrow cause I have to get up at 4 am and I am not looking forward to that while feeling like this.
Also found our stroller we used with our son (it was a travel system) and it is covered in freaking mildew. Yay. So now we get to throw it away and buy a new one. I am hoping I can find one that will fit her infant seat that was a part of the old travel system. Luckily our infant seat we used with our son doesn't expire until after 2013 so we should be good using it until she can't fit in it anymore.
We did have a somewhat productive day though. We got the car seat installed, moved some more stuff from the grandparents basement into our new shed and planted some bulbs
Now the only thing that is really left is painting the living room and our sons room but I would be surprised if that got done before she is here.
Does the fabric come off of the stroller? If so, you could try putting it in the washing machine. Ours was in a similar state and I was able to remove everything but the baskety thing underneath (Graco travel system stroller) and it all came off in the wash.
Vinegar is also a miracle remover for stuff like that.
P.S. Sorry you're sick. I am just getting over a cold myself and I am glad I didn't have to go through labor with it. I wonder if your body knows you're not well and delays labor for something like that.
Yuck.. I hope you feel better before the baby comes. The pollen is SO bad here (in VA) right now. We really need a good rain. I've been avoiding spending too much time out there but it's hard with a 2.5 year old who just wants to get out and run. Try using a neti pot. If you are sick from the pollen it will work wonders.
We actually tried getting the fabric off the stroller but it makes u think it all comes off but when u get down to it ...it doesnt. We got the seat part off but it has some sort of really hard cardboard in the seat so i am afraid of putting it in the washer :/
I am sitting in the drs office now...decided to go ahead and come in for relief. Normally id try to tough it out but i really dont want to feel like this with Emily arriving soon.
