cough, puff, achoo!

Living in any city, you're exposed to so many elements during your day; and this is especially true in a city the size of New York.

I ride the subway to and from work every day, and door-to-door, it's about an hour each way. This means I come in contact with A LOT of people daily- many of whom are more germy than others. Sneezing, coughing, hacking. Now, this has always grossed me out to a certain degree- but now I'm more worried about my wee little orange seed in mah belly! I feel like yelling, "hey, dude- cover your mouth! I'm growin' a human here!"

Also something I'm MUCH more aware of as I walk down the crowded streets- smokers. I always try and walk faster than them so that they don't blow their gross smoke right in my face- but now that I have a baby to protect, I'm even more aware of it. I often hold my breath if passing by a smoker, so I don't breathe it in. Yuck!

One thing I know- my hand sanitizer has become a very helpful staple in my purse. :)

  1. isn't that weird? that happened to me at first too. right after i got pregs, i was getting my eyebrows waxed, and i asked the esthetician how she was. she was like, "oh, i'm not good. i'm sick." [me: worry!] .. i'm like "uh oh, cold?" and she was like, "no, stomach flu."

    GREAT. i wanted to jump off that table so fast! i had to breathing when she got close to my face!
