Well, today was entertaining to say the least. I had a hard time keeping my balance thanks to a cold.
I managed to pick up this cold while on the road last week. I thought it was just allergies all weekend but woke up on Monday morning with a definite cold. Not the worst one I've ever had, more annoying than anything else. I took some cold medication last night hoping that I could get some sleep. That plan didn't pan out. I kept waking up and think I got just enough sleep to get an accurate temperature reading on waking. And since I was on my left side most of the night that is where the cold settled.
I got up to our floor at work this morning and bumped into the wall, ran into a filing cabinet and spent the rest of the day trying not to veer off to the left. It provided me and some of my coworkers with a good laugh, at least.
And wouldn't you know it, I'm CD 10 today. I can tell my body is gearing up to ovulate. My left ovary seems to have made an appearance this month. And the right one is piping up as well. I had a cold or a mild influenza back in September, also caught on the road, and it delayed my ovulation by 3 days. While I don't enjoy being sick I'm trying to look at this positively in 2 ways: (1) this isn't going to interfere with treatment since I don't start until January, and (2) I'm getting to see what being sick in the pre-ovulatory phase does to my body, cycle, and ovulation pattern.
I'm just looking forward to this cold going away so I can get a better night's sleep and walk without fearing that I'm going to list like a ship.
