    While it is small comfort… I found that Johnson’s soothing vapor bath was helpful during pregnacy when I couldn’t take anything.  However, I leaned from painful experience that it should be dilluted in your bath water- deciding to just put it on the shower pouf one morning when you’re out of your body wash is a bad idea.

    Oh, also that ginger tea that was supposed to be a god send for morning sickness but wasn’t quite up to the job (going from my experience) is great for helping clear your sinuses a bit if you make it strong.

    Sudafed shower soother thingys are supposed to be great.

    A visit from George Clooney might help.

    Don’t you love how the older kid starts beating the hell out of the younger kid IN UTERO? Nice! Mine did the same, if it’s any consolation. Kid #2 is now wicked smart and holds his own just fine with evil big sister.

    I’m not an Oprah fan, either.  She does alot, has great people on her show and all that, but I don’t go out of my way to watch her.  And only have watched a few shows myself, but that was just because of the subject matter, not her!

    Personally, I just loathe the entire month of February. SO READY FOR SPRING! And we (knock on wood) have not even been sick since the holidays.

    I was a WAHM for 11 months with Amelia and although I loved it , it was sooo hard if I was on deadline. I had visions of sitting at a cafe, sipping lattes and working on my laptop while she slept but in reality I ended up working during nap time and late at night and not showering or shaving my legs and wearing gross clothes all day long. I am just amazed that women actually have time to watch Oprah!

    Although I never watch, I actually consider myself somewhat of a fan of Oprah.  That said, her snippets on that interview show?  Were grating.  And fake.  And over-the-top.  But that could just be my opinion.  Or it could be the flu talking.

    Finally!  Another non-Oprah fan. 

    I too, have never really watched her, I don’t know why, although I think it has something to do with her weight loss…. subconciously maybe I’m jealous. wink

    Two words: Neti.Pot.

    I don’t know what it is about her, but she irritates the hell out of me too.  I’ve never been an Oprah watcher and I never will.

    Non-Oprah fans unite! And now I have to add Neti Pot to bon-bons in my google search.

    I can’t stand Oprah.  I realize she’s out there doing good and yada, yada, yada but she just irks me.  She seems full of herself or something.  As for bon bons?  All I know is that when I was little we always had them in our freezer and they were DELICIOUS.

    I’m glad it’s not just me.  I can’t stand Oprah. 

    Bon-bons on the other hand I’d be willing to try.  Of course, I’m not picky.  I’m still bloated from all the gas station candy.

    I don’t like Oprah either.  Mainly because spending my day at home with 2 kids under the age of 2 is mind numbing enough.  Watching Orprah makes me feel like my brain is turning to mush and dripping slowly out my ear.  wink

    Funny, I posted on the topic of daytime talk shows not long ago (I catch snippets at the gym sometimes). I was an Oprah fan, once upon a time. But now that she’s gotten bigger than life, it seems like she’s out of touch with the average folk.  She comes off as elitist to me now…

    Now Ellen… she’s GOOD! And also on at 4:00 here I don’t usually get to watch, but it’s a treat when I do!!

    I go back and forth with Oprah.  One day I think she’s a real laid-back, funny kind of chick.  The next day she’s all stuck on herself, tooting her own horn.  And her show’s the same way.  Some days…entertaining.  Some days…booring!

    I have a love hate thing with Oprah too. First she does some great stuff like open schools and expose people to great books like The Good Earth. Then her show does waaaay too much celebrity butt kissing (George Clooney does NOT count) i.e. too many celebs trying to sell their movie, book, or whatever. Then there’s the whole, buy stuff you’ll feel better mass consumption thing.

    Yet, if you’ve made it on Oprah, you have arrived. Her power in media is amazing.
