I never get allergies. Ever. I've been blessed with a tremendously savvy immune system, and I have always vocally appreciated this fact. I know I'm lucky.

So why do I have allergies now? NOW? In my 37th week of pregnancy, when I'm already feeling slow and waddly and enormous and ridiculous and my back hurts, and I'm getting Braxton Hicks contractions and my nausea has made a comeback. That wasn't enough? I also have to feel like I have the world's worst cold, too?
