Germs, Germs go away

I meant to write this week but there was a pox upon my house. My husband came home sick Monday from work with a 103 fever, chills, runny nose, and general cold like symptoms. So I spent Monday evening tending to him. Then Tuesday night I had another one of my attacks. I still suspect it is gallstones but since the doctors weren't able to find anything during the ultrasound a few months ago we are still in the dark on what it is for sure. I was pretty puny Wednesday from being sick and in pain all Tuesday night. Thursday I felt a lot better so I cleaned and cooked dinner and went about my business as usual. Then I got a stomach bug on Thursday night/Friday early morning. I assume it was a stomach bug since my husband ate the same thing as me Thursday night and was fine. So I was sick as a dog aaalllll day Friday. My husband was sick the whole week with his cold like symptoms so he finally broke down and went to the doctor Friday. He has an upper respiratory infection so he got loaded up with antibiotics and ear drops. Bear is fine except for a never ending runny nose and teething so thats good.

It was such a horrible and draining week we spent most of Saturday laying around trying to rest. My inlaws came in Saturday evening to stay the night and watch Bear so that we could go out. I thought about cancelling but since going out alone with my husband is such a rare event I decided I could suck it up. We had a wonderful time. We got to go see the Changeling with Angelina Jolie. Not probably the best movie to see as a parent, especially a pregnant parent, but it was a really good movie. Then we had dinner at Olive Garden followed by Starbucks (decaf for me). They had peppermint mochas so that was a special treat. We got home late and the baby and the grandparents were already in bed so we got to crash. The grandparents even got up with Bear this morning so we could sleep in a little. Plus my husband's stepmom brought us gumbo, rice, and crackers she made so I wouldn't have to cook today.

Also on the plus side this week, I am almost positive I am feeling the first kicks this week. I love that feeling. It is my favorite part of pregnancy. Only 1 1/2 more weeks till I have my sonogram. Squee!!

Sorry to hear you've all been sick! Question: Have you considered the attacks you're having as heartburn? I'm certainly no doctor, but my doc suspected gallstones and it turned out to be heartburn. I had it really bad with my last pregnancy and even in between. It was right under my sternum and would hurt so bad I was nauseous. It felt like whatever it was was just cramping or I had a big brick sitting at the bottom of it. My gastric doc said, "Yup, that's classic hearburn!" I was really surprised, but I made a few dietary adjustments and was fine! Email me if you have any questions, but it's worth a shot to see if it's something that easy! Hope that helps in some small way.

Feel better!

That stomach bug is terrible. If a bazillion people I knew hadn't had it, I for sure would have thought it was food poisoning.

We have been really sick around here too! No fun at all!

Hope you can stay feeling good now for a while!

I am so excited to find out what the baby is...I want to send you guys a little something when you finally do find out! :-)

I hate when everyone gets sick at the same time. Then who takes care of who? lol

Blech! You poor girl. Here's hoping your house is bug-free soon!

Honey, I had gallstones when I was pregnant with Sean...if that's what your attacks are, I totally feel your pain! My gallbladder had to be removed when Sean was 5 weeks old. Hope the whole house is feeling better soon! :)

Ugh - I hope everybody is feeling better.

I love those baby kicks - until they start happening in your bladder or under your ribcage! We want to know if we can expect a girl or boy!
