Day 729

Tomorrow Andrew and I will have been married for two years. It's been fun so far. We had a fun first year, the second year was great, and we're looking forward to the third. We have no idea what it has in store for us.

We celebrated our anniversary today since tomorrow is Sunday and we wanted to go out. Unfortunately, I woke up sick this morning so we weren't that exciting. I felt fine last night and then I woke up at like 3 AM and was like, "Blah." Andrew got up and read the back of every kind of medicine we had in our house, all of which said to consult a health care professional before taking since I'm breastfeeding. I finally settled on a big spoonful of honey and tried to go back to sleep. Usually when I'm sick that's not a problem but last night I just couldn't sleep.

So, my day was pretty non-exciting.

Andrew had to be on campus for a study group and to sell some books back. He took Rachel with him and I slept, ignoring everything that I have on my "to do" list.

I woke up while they were still gone and tried phoning every breastfeeding hotline and warmline in the state to ask what medicines I could take while breastfeeding (Dayquil, anyone?) but I got no one. No answering machines. No people. No one. I then gave up on that method and just tried Google searching. Whenever anything happens and I need to ask a doctor something, it's always on the weekend or some insane hour of the night. Why doesn't anything ever happen during the day when I could just call and ask?

It seems that Sudafed is alright as long as I don't use it for a prolonged amount of time. We didn't have any though, so we picked some up on the way home from our date.

For our date we went out bowling with the tickets that David gave us. I bowled a 100 and then an 87 (ouch, I know). Andrew bowled a 94 and then a 145. It was fun.

We then stopped by the Pizza Factory for a bite to eat. I was shocked at how little food we got for how much we paid. It was good pizza, but a little on the steep side. At least I don't have to do any dinner dishes. I'm not sure anyone in our house is feeling up to it. Except maybe Rachel. I'm not sure anything slows her down.


  1. Happy Anniversary to you guys, wow two years already. :)

    Casey's dad is an OB and he's always telling us that if any of our friends ever have any questions to call him. So here's his home phone number if you ever need to get a hold of a doctor on a weekend again:


    He seriously wouldn't mind at all - just say you're one of our friends. :)

  2. Happy Anniversary! I'm sorry you don't feel well, and I'm also sorry that I laugh at you all the time when I read your posts. You are way more anal with your own child then you ever were with mine hahahaha! Poor poor Rachel....! And then secondly, why did you not feel this obsessive compulsive with my children??? hahahaha! I love you!

  3. Oh, and his name is David Claypool. ;)

  4. That was one of my least favorite parts of being pregnant or breast-feeding: getting sick. It's never fun, but when you can't take NyQuil it's just TERRIBLE!

    Sudafed decreased my milk supply. Just FYI. I ended up getting one of those decongesting nasal sprays and it was awesome! And since it's inhaled, it doesn't get into the milk. As much, anyway.

  5. Two years! HAs it been that!
    Congrats! I am glad that you were able to get out on a date and have some fun, even though you weren't feeling to good. And Andrew is so nice to take Rachel to a study group and to sell back books so you could rest. What a guy!

  6. yay for your date! The 15th is an anniversary for matt and I (7 years ago, we started dating!) and because of family christmas parties, we decided to go out on the 14th.
    and then I was sick on the 15th. I had that same problem, I woke up in the middle of the night, and just didn't feel good the rest of the day and didn't want to go anywhere.
    glad you guys were able to get out though!!

  7. Thanks everyone :)

    Last night Andrew spiked a fever so he's down for the count, too. Then I woke up in the middle of the night again with an outrageous fever.

    Rachel is just as happy as can be which is both good and bad.

    As we were going to bed last night, Rachel was in her swing screaming and we were both half dead, and Andrew said, "Is this what you imagined life would be like 2 years ago? Me and you sick and the baby screaming?"

    I was like, "Oh,'s a dream come true..."

    Or not.

  8. And I think they've changed the formula for Sudafed...they use a different active ingredient now. It's phenylephrine instead of pseudoephedrine.

    At least, I haven't had any problems with milk supply...yet anyways :)

  9. Congrats on 2 years! It really doesn't seem like it's been that long, but I guess it has. I guess that means that it's been 2 years since I could really call Utah home. ;( I'm glad you got to go out, even though you're not feeling well. I hope your next 2 years go as fast!
