Yep, it's my birthday today and it's turning out like any other regular day, except I'm on vacation leave (and the last day of my block leave too).
Leo's been bugging me on what I would want for my birthday. For the life of me, I can't decide what I want so I just told him to save it for the baby's birth. Besides, he's renewing my People subscription so that's enough of a gift for me.
I had my 32nd week check-up today. I gained 3 lbs the past two weeks but my doctor's still not worried about it as I caught a bad cold in the last couple of days and the additional weight gain could probably be the amount of liquids that I consumed to combat the cold. Besides, I'm still within my predetermined weight gain so we're still ok. My BP is at 110/60, again nothing to worry about although she did find traces of protein in my urine but still normal. She'll check again in a couple of weeks. My feet are a bit swollen but is not noticeable (I didn't notice it too until she pointed it out to me).
My cold is better although my throat is still a bit sore but I gargle with Betadine (I prefer it over Bactidol) 3x a day. Though it's considered safe, I don't dare drink Neozep or Decolgen as per my experience, drinking cold medicines usually give me asthma and it's something which I can't afford to have right now. According to my doctor, they treat pregnant patients having an asthma attack as non-pregnant and I don't want that to happen.
Anyway, I'm going to take a nap. I need all the rest that I need as I'll be returning to work tomorrow. Oh well, after two weeks, it's vacation time again. Something to look forward to.
