Hello, all! I am currently laying in bed, snuggled up to my little kitty, watching TV and recovering from getting terribly sick yesterday.
It started as a normal Saturday, with coffee and family time. I went to the gym for an upper body workout class, feeling fine the whole time.
I got home and cleaned the house while the baby napped. I felt a little flushed, but thought I was just hot from the cleaning. I took a quick shower, then got the baby up and started feeding her a bottle.
That is when things took a turn for the worse. I felt a sharp pain in my stomach, so I yelled for my husband to take the baby and get me a bucket. He put the baby in her bouncer, then grabbed me the Halloween candy bucket just in time for me to lose my lunch. It scared baby K and she cried so much. My husband took her to another room and kept saying, “mommy is okay.” I made it into the bathroom and puked at least 10 more times. I could hear the baby cry every time I did, and it broke my heart.
My husband took over everything; cleaning up after me, playing with the baby, then getting her to bed.
Meanwhile, I slept on the bathroom floor until I knew I was done throwing up. I had a temp of 101, and was freezing.
I was able to drink a little water and have a few pretzels before bed.
I woke up feeling better, but nauseous. I was hungry, so I ate and drank water. I had to be back on mom duty, but this sweet face made me so happy.
I am just praying the baby and my husband don’t get this! I washed and disinfected everything I touched yesterday. The rest of my evening will be spent taking it easy until bedtime!
Have a wonderful week ahead, everyone!
