So I did end up getting Beowulf's cold. I stayed home the last 2 days with a hacking cough and an achy body for which all I could take was regular-old Tylenol. While hubby got 3 different medicines issued from the physician's assistant he saw at sick call, I had to make do with low doses of acetaminophen and as much water as I could drink. Thankfully I was able to keep my temperature below 100 the whole time (no significant fever; only hovered at 99.7 degrees for about an hour before it went back down), so baby's ok, as far as I can tell. I'm better now; not all the way better, but better enough to be at work today. Not that I actually do much at work these days, but I'm here. And somebody has been eating my peanuts.
I had read that protein-heavy snacks can help offset morning sickness, and protein is good for the baby anyway, so I had bought a nice big jar of peanuts for my desk at work to snack on as I got hungry and as morning sickness attacked. I had eaten about an inch and a half's worth out of the jar before I left work on Thursday. I got to work this morning and the jar is half empty. Grrr... Somebody's been eating my snacks.
Let me warn you right now. Never steal a pregnant lady's food. I have now written "DO NOT EAT MY PEANUTS!" all over the jar. Hopefully this will prevent any further munching by people other than me. I can't believe someone did that! Usually people in this office are very respectful of other peoples' property. Grrr...
Our receptionist thinks that it must be the janitors that ate my peanuts after hours. I am not convinced. :(
