Prayers needed--Update at bottom

My niece is around 11wks pregnant with baby #2. Today she started having some minor complications and has gone to the ER to get things checked out. If you are the religious type, then please, just say a little prayer that mom and baby are both ok.
It turned out to be a simple infection that can be cleared with oral antibiotics. Baby is due in March, maybe he/she will come around my birthday, March 6th.

Colds ruin everything!

I haven't ovulated yet and it's cycle day 21. I'm getting pretty discouraged this cycle. Last weekend we went to Cincinnati, Ohio and watched a Reds ballgame. M is a HUGE Reds fan and it was his first MLB game ever. The game was great, the Reds won and Encarnacion hit a Grand Slam! It was wonderful seeing hubby so happy. They put on a great fireworks display after the game. Then the next day we went to King's Island for their starlight admission--5 hours for $15--a great deal if you just want to grab a few quick rides. It was nice, but M doesn't ride much, so we rode 4 things and hung around a played games, ate funnel cake, etc. Having a weekend away was just heavenly. We came back on Sunday evening and I woke up Monday morning with a head cold. Of course I refused to take any over the counter cold meds because I didn't want anything to dry up my CM because it was O time. It's progressed from head cold to chest cold and last night my asthma flared up a bit. I'm feeling better today I just sound bad. The little guy I watch, Zachary-2 almost 3, who also happens to be my nephew, overhead me talking on the phone about my voice being very hoarse and insisted on a piggyback ride and has called me a horse ever since.
I'm hoping the cold has just delayed ovulation and it will still happen soon, the latest I've O'd is day 23 so I'm still holding out a little hope. But M got home from work this morning and said he's feeling awful, sore throat, stuffy nose, all that stuff. So I don't know if we will be able to, well, ya know, tonight. I'm guessing no.
But that's all that's been going on around here lately.
