Head Cold + Pregnancy = NO FUN!

I have been battling this awesome head cold since Wednesday and I am OVER IT!!  I have been trying to stay away from the approved medications that my doctor allows and just dealing with the stuffy nose, the constant blowing of the nose and the scratchy throat.  I literally have been carrying a box of tissues around with me at all times (even in the car) and if I need to run into a store, I take at least 6 tissues in my purse so we don't have any issues.  The poor trash cans in my house have been over flowing of tissues....

Instead of my usual weekend recap, let's bullet point the weekend:
  • We started watching "Orange is the New Black" and it isn't that bad!  We try to watch an episode a night so we don't watch the first season too fast.
  • I've become addicted to drinking iced tea again.  My new favorite way to drink it, since I am steering clear of splenda, is mixing half unsweet tea and half sweet tea together.  I need to make some of my own at home so I am not going out to buy it every time.
  • Tissues are my new best friend (obviously)....
  • I decided to try out those nasal strips to open up your airway and help you breathe.  My verdict is that they are good but nothing really helps until the snot is officially gone. 
  • I feel like I have NO room for food anymore in the belly.  I have been craving chicken fajitas from 54th Street Grill but I know it's not worth us going since I eat like a 5 year old (portion wise).
  • I made my first pacifier clip for Baby Boy and LOVE it!  I will make sure to blog about it tomorrow!
  • I am not a good "road tripper" anymore, just ask my husband; he will tell you!  We took a drive out to Illinois on Sunday and within that 45 minute drive, I made Andy stop once so that I could use the bathroom.  I made him stop one more time after we were leaving Illinois so that I could make it all the way home....LOL!
  • Another great husband moment!!  Friday night he ran out and got me the following things: orange juice (to help get my immune system back to normal), golden grahams (because they are delicious) and cheese Doritos (because they sounded good)....#pregnancycravings
  • I am bumming that I had to cancel lunch plans with Ali on Saturday.  This nose stuffiness is no joke!  Hoping we can reschedule very soon!!!
  • My sister is a goof....I have proof in photos:
