I’m having a whah day. Wednesday night, I got sick and it got worse Thursday morning. TMI alert if you continue. I was vomitting so hard, I got a red spot on my eye and later red spots ALL over my face. It was the worst I’ve ever had. Plus, then the “other end” started to join in the fun. Since I’m 29 weeks along, my OB wanted me to go to L&D. I got 2 bags of fluids and still had zero urge to pee. Luckily, baby & all my tests were A-OK. (It took about 5 hrs in the most uncomfortable bed ever to find it out, though! I’m seriously sore now.)
This is my 2nd time being sick during this pregnancy…both since I found out I’m also anemic. I’m just sooo amazed at how much longer it takes me to bounce back! My cold felt as bad as a “non-pregnant flu”, and today I’m still barely able to work from the “food poisoning” or virus. (Normally, I’d probably be back in the office, but I will probably only work 3 hrs from home..)
I knew pregnancy would be hard, but I had no idea my immune system would be THIS much worse! Just another reminder to take extra good care of ourselves (sleep, water, vitamins, etc.).
It was also annoying, bc I had a big meeting yesterday that I was leading. My manager did not get my voicemail for osme reason until hours after I left it and hours after the meeting…but oh well, my hubby is very big on me needing my rest. I’m just perking up for a few minutes to write this then going back to bed. Also, we’ve been homebodies but had multiple parties lined up this weekend, including one at our house that we now need to cancel. 🙁
I realize this baby is still a blessing, and I’m so glad everything turned out OK, but I’m just having one of those grouchy days where I can’t believe I have more than 2 more months to go. (What a difference a trimester makes…I was so much more cheery before getting to 3rd!)
Hope you all are having a good Friday, and Thank God it’s almost the weekend!
