I'm always intimidated by a difficult trailhead... when you are going for a hike, but just getting past the trailhead wipes you out.

I'm 10 and a half weeks pregnant. Just the trailhead; barely getting started. On this Monday, I'm still recovering from some horrible weekend nausea (morning sickness paired with a rough boat trip is NOT a pretty thing), I have a hand that is massively swollen and itchy from one or two wasp stings on my thumb, and I have come down with a head cold...and am not allowed to take any medication for it. Oh, and I had a complete bawling breakdown with hubs last night because of the cellulite that has made a home on my legs recently.

It's been a bit of a rough trailhead. I'm pretty wiped out. I dare not complain though, for I know I'm just getting started. What if this is the easy part?

And I think it is.

There is one good thing though.

When you go for a hike, and it's a killer from the get-go, it always has a fantastic view at the top.

Could you put some topical benedryl on it? I'm thinking I would! Also, I use a lot of saline nasal spray, hot rice packs, and hot tea for sinus stuff when I'm pregnant (and trust me, I'm the queen of sinus stuff when I'm pregnant!) I hope you feel better. The drainage from the sinus stuff doesn't help when you are pregnant.
It's a marathon, not a sprint. Hang in there! :-) (Not that you asked my opinion for any of this...)

Oh Kim - please don't apologize! I need all the advice I can get on pregnancy-approved remedies. I've thought about some tea, although that will sound a lot better when the weather gets a bit cooler!

Thankfully, I think the swelling on my hand is finally going down. I was mostly concerned that the swelling would just take over my whole body! I *think* it's starting to get better. Finally!
