OK, this has absolutely nothing to do with being pregnant...except for the fact that it brightened an otherwise blah day. Not the dead chicken part, the wandering ones. Even I feel bad for dead chickens.

Dead and wandering chickens closed all of westbound Interstate 30 just before First Avenue on Tuesday afternoon.
A tractor-trailer hauling chickens and crates overturned about noon, Dallas police Senior Cpl. Jamie Matthews said. Some chickens died from the wreck, while others wandered about.
Cpl. Matthews estimated about 2 p.m. that the mess could be cleaned up before the late-afternoon rush hour.
The driver of the tractor-trailer was not seriously injured. No other vehicles were involved, and investigators were trying to determine how the truck overturned.
Police did not know why the chickens crossed the interstate.
On to the pregnancy update:
If the above-mentioned story brightened my day, I'm sure many of you can imagine what kind of day I've had. On a scale of 1 to 10, it gets about a 4. It could be worse, but I just don't feel good. My head and nose are stuffy, my throat hurts, my tummy has been relatively unhappy all day--even after I ate a cup of cottage cheese at breakfast. It might have been the lemon yogurt at lunch. Yuck. Doesn't sound so good anymore. I'd like to go home, but I have to work today, Wed and Thursday. Evidently, I have Friday off. I had forgotten about that. So, my vacation is a day longer. Yeah!!!
Besides that, my face is broken out like a pepperoni pizza. My upper back isn't much better. I've never had any sort of skin problems so this is very frustrating and upsetting to me. I know it's for a good cause---after all, I am going to have a baby, but it's still upsetting. Mark says I'm beautiful, but he's biased.
Any ideas? Any tried and true remedies to keep my skin from breaking out?
Love you all
