Itchy, fussy, whiny and the baby isn’t even kicking yet

I have allergies. They have been a thorn in my side for years, but over the past two weeks they’ve gotten so much worse.

We moved to a new place, but we got those room filter things that run all the time and I don’t see mold or anything like that anywhere in the house. There isn’t a basement, and Bob’s been in the attic. We’re pretty sure it’s not the new location.

I read in “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” that nasal stuffiness and nosebleeds were common in the fourth month. Thanks to all the hormones.

Want to know when I read it? About 1:30 this morning while Bob was scrubbing at mildew and I was nursing my poor nose. I woke up about 30 minutes earlier completely miserable.

Apparently I like to rub my nose in my sleep when it itches and I had rubbed it raw. It hurt so much. We started the humidifier again, although we’re both pretty sure it’s broken, and I took more allergy medicine. I also put medicine on my sore nose where I had itched it so much.

I’m so thankful that Bob is so nice to me at times like this. I know I have to be getting harder to live with, and I know I wasn’t very easy to begin with. I mean I woke the poor man up fussing and practically crying over my sore nose and (I’m sure) saying nonsensical things.

I don’t know if many men would clean up mildew under a bathroom sink at 1 in the morning because their fussy wives have made their noses bleed.

I just keep hoping I’ll regain a little sense of normalcy soon so I can try and be a better wife for him. I feel like all I do is sleep, sneeze and fuss. (and watch Project Runway and lots of football!)

Have any of you felt like you’ve become horrible wives since you found out you were pregnant? Please tell me it isn’t just me!!
