Yellow Snow

THIS IS NOT HELPING THE SINUS ISSUES!
This is our Black Hummer...with a coat of yellow snow. Gotta love Spring time!
So I gave in and went to the doctor today. He gave me zyrtec and an antibiotic to start on Saturday if the zyrtec doesn't help knock it out. He really feels that it's allergy sinus stuff but I may have a sinus infection. (Ya think?) At least he is the first doc to agree with me that it seems I have chronic sinus issues. Once I have the baby he will give me an order to get a CT of my sinus' if I want to explore the issue. According to him they can go in and "clean them out" if need be. I have no idea if that sounds like something I want to do. However, if it would cut down on all these infections I'm game to try. We'll see how the zyrtec works. Anyone out there have any advice on that?? Been through any chronic sinus issues? I will admit that before I got pregnant I had quite a few. The sinus stuff added to pregnancy has been ten times worse for me. It seems that all the sinus drainage etc. causes nausea and vomiting. I truly feel like I've been run over by a truck. I'm getting depressed too. I'm so tired of being sick, feeling sick and having no energy for my Lindsay or any of the baby projects that are sadly not getting done at this time. I know it will happen. I'm just so ready to be done and have this baby here. At this point in time I just don't know how I'm going to make it another 100 days. Between work being on my last nerve and then feeling stressed out at home every time I look at the room that will soon be Lindsay's. In my mind's eye it will be the most gorgeous big girl room. I just don't know how I'm going to get from point A to point B if I don't start feeling better. It is aggravating that all of this time off from work has been spent being sick in the bed and not working on stuff around the house.

I know I have lots to be thankful for too. I'm thankful I have so many wonderful blogger pals to help lift me up. I know I have been venting more than I like on the old blog lately. Thanks for all your sweet comments of recent. I'm also very thankful that even though I've been so under the weather it's not affecting the baby girl. She's doing great and fortunately she is pretty protected from all of the crud that is affecting me! That's a relief. When it comes down to it, that's all that matters.
Well, I'm off to take a nap and try to get a little more rest before Lindsay comes home from school. I'm planning on gracing work with my presence tomorrow. So, we'll see. At least it's Friday! We are invited to a company thing at the zoo this Sunday with Lindsay's Aunt Agatha and Uncle Paul. We're really looking forward to it so I'm hoping to be feeling much better by then.
