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!!
