Plague Update

Well, we're all home today. Jason seems somewhat better, I'm still weak and feeling tentative, Caroline won't eat breakfast but says she feels okay (she always eats breakfast) and Bryce is Mr. Diarrhea. Poor kid. Poor us. We are literally changing him about 5 minutes after we changed him last, over and over. It's not a lot of poo each time, but the kid is clearly having some GI issues. Of course he did have a breakfast blowout which required his booster seat to be completely cleaned out and a bath, but I think that was just a build up from over night. But he's hungry and keeps asking for food. He got close to Caroline a bit ago and she told him he smelled. Which he did.

I know I should eat something but I just feel like it's not going to stay down even though I haven't thrown up in almost 24 hours. And I honestly don't know when I'll ever eat chili again since that was the last thing I ate on Tuesday night. Ew.

Oh and I weighed myself mostly b/c my brother said he lost like 8lbs when he had this and all I could keep thinking about was how much fluid I'd lost and if it was okay for the baby. I wasn't trying to lose any weight, I was just curious. I'm sure I'll hear it at my OB's next week....

I had a whopper of a stomach bug in my third trimester with Simon... I freaked out and went to L&D because I was so worried about the fluid loss. ( I think I went 24 hours without being able to keep so much as water down) They told me I was fine and to sip Gatorade when I could keep fluid down, just to start balancing everything out...

Ok so I know you aren't trying to lose weight since you pregnant but I am, and I've decided that I don't want to wish a stomach bug on anyone especially may girls since I know if I got so would they. Man I guess that means I have to go to the gym tonight.......
