Well, here we are at 28.5 weeks! We got back from our trip almost three weeks ago now, and I realize I’ve written very little about it. I spent the first two weeks exhausted, fighting the third cold I’ve had this pregnancy (poor little immune system), a Roman superbug, and diving right into a busy time at work.
After the sore throat, runny nose, etc., the superbug announced its presence in my sinuses last Monday with a sudden onset toothache affecting only the teeth on the top right side of my mouth. For a few hours, I sat at my desk, feeling like my face was going to explode. The tooth pain abated on its own, but since that time, I’ve upped the neti pot to twice a day, which seems to be working.
I’m actually trying to be good about resting my bum knee, which means almost no biking, because I need it to get me through an entire day in the saddle for the Cycling Savvy training this Saturday, followed by a community bike ride on Sunday.
I’m still keeping active with some walking, upper body weights, and the prenatal yoga class I just started.
I hope to get back on track here soon, with some posts on our time in Italy and green baby prep. Until then, here’s hoping for sunny skies to dry up the soggy ground and healthy knees for biking!
