So yesterday when I woke up I was feeling congested...I think it's allergies and since I can't take anything for it (or at least I'm choosing not to), I've been using my Neti Pot. That's that genie lantern-like thing that Dr. Oz introduced us to on Oprah years back. It's a simple process of draining the nasal cavity by running warm, saline water through one nostril and out the other. For beginners, it can feel a bit like drowning, but once you get used to it, it's amazing and really cleans everything out. My ears often pop and I'm left feeling great.
So I used my neti pot...ran the water through...and before I knew it, I looked down...
And there was a murder scene in my sink.
Blood clots (or maybe bloody snot) and watery blood pouring from my nose.
Only for a moment. For I am well read where pregnancy symptoms are concerned and I know that bloody noses are very common at this time.
But I really didn't think that it would happen like that! It was a mess, but as soon as I was done blowing it all out (after draining each nostril, you blow your nose and the heavens open up), the blood stopped. Thank goodness.
And just now?
And a little pee came out.
I'm officially falling apart.
And I'm loving every second of it.
