(Picture of me 6 months pregnant with my Siera-10 and Halee-8 at Halee's 8th Birthday Party)

6 months Pregnant  and sick, sick, sick!  Monday was a chaotic day and just too much for my body!  I woke up feeling like there was a Mack Truck sitting on my chest.  I sucked up and went in to teach my ninety minute spinning class at 4:45 am, then as I am leaving I receive a text from one of my staff asking if I could teach her spinning class at 9 am and committed to help her out knowing I had one more class at 11 am.  I was just physically exausted so I just chalked it up as being fatigued from being a prego.

Boy was I WRONG!  I was coming down with a horrific case of bronchitus and a sinus infection.  My fever spiked and I felt like I had ran a marathon.  Called my doctor who encouraged me to rest.  I would have love to, but I had meeting that I needed to be present at for work.  I did cover my spinning class and knew there was no way I was going to be doing any moving.

Headed home after meeting and was out.  Crazy me!  I thought I would wake up and feel better, but I had filled my 2.5 hrs of group exercise classes for Wednesday.  Ha!  There was no faking it!  I was a mess!  Called the doctor late Wednesday afternoon and sceduled an appointment for the following day.  Covered all my classes for Thursday and cancelled meetings.  Worked on a few things and then the pain set it!  Throat was on fire!

No sleep for the pregnant lady!  I woke up every hour last night not being able to sleep.  Baby Ava was moving all over the place.  She conducted a kickboxing class in the womb wth no idea Mommy is sick, sick, sick!

Yep, it is official I am SICK!  I may have been in a little denial.  The room was spinning, the Mack truck on my chest and the lack of energy should have convinced me, but I am too tough to be sick.  Not me!  I am never sick.  Guess the doctor telling me that I am now out until Monday might have convinced me otherwise. 

My favorite saying in all my classes is fake until you make it!  Well, I guess this motto will have to get me through this nasty disaster. 

Hoping to get back to a normal day soon.  I hate not being able to do anything.  My children need me, my husband is tired and baby Ava needs a healthy mom so REST IT IS. 

Bring on the healthy ME!  I don't like this one bit! Just gonna FAKE IT TIL I MAKE IT...HEALTHY AGAIN!
