    I have strep throat right now and I can’t remember ever being sicker. I am taking probiotics & grapefruit seed in the hope that I don’t get a yeast infection (leftover from the thrush I get everytime I start nursing!). So yeah, I could not imagine going through this AND being pregnant at the same time. Pregnancy is like an illness onto itself, really. To top it off with more crap must have been hell.
    I have also been thinking Corinne may be our last because two kids when I am down for the count (not to mention everything else going on) has been extremely stressful.

  4. oh my! are all pregnancies like this? this sounds terrible!
    ive only ever had one yeast infection. it had only one symptom that was the cottage cheese-like discharge. the treatment was more unpleasant than the infection. it made me feel like a freak bc everyone else gets shittaeous yeast infections.
    ok, end overshare, luba.
