Nasty Bug

No what-I-wore-Sunday post today. If you have a weak stomach, stop here. I may be divulging too disgusting of details.

This GI bug is cramping my style {got it?} been racking my brain for the cause of this nasty diarrhea.... It's either food-related {I.e. bad yogurt} or infectious.

I'm not the one to call my doctors office or let alone call the on-call line for non-labor related issues. But after uhm, 7 trips of watery stools (yuck) I just have to make sure I'm being a good patient. And of course, good mother. I have my little one in the tummy to worry about. If I'm not pregnant, I will deal with the issues and not even call.

Doctor asks: any cramping?
Me: just upper quadrant pain. Nothing lower.
Doctor: keeping anything down?
Me: trying to.
Doctor: why not take zofran so you can tolerate water
Me: {duh, how come I did not think of that!}
Doctor: how's the baby?
Me: moving around just now {praise The Lord!}

Yesterday, not even the BRAT diet sat well in my tummy. I've never had such loud hyperactive bowel sounds. One does not need a stethoscope to figure out something nasty in the tummy. One bite of banana -nope done.... Water saved me.. And one dose of zofran.

Today, I'm advancing my diet. I stopped counting yesterday. I must have had 10-12 trips to the bathroom. Maybe more?

I ate some rice for lunch. More than one bite of banana. So there's nutrition going to the baby. And I'm making urine.... Instead of watery you-know-what.

I'm not the only one bed- bound today. My good friend's toddler tripped and fell and has a splint right now for possible fracture. They'll know tomorrow if he will need a cast. So I'm not the only one who needs prayers. Pray for the cutie. Because this will be the second time he will need a cast {if he needs it} and he's not even 2.

This is what the kids were doing while I lay on the couch.

They gave good entertainment in between my bathroom trips.

How about another pict from my birthday weekend? Maybe this may substitute my wiws photo op? {nah - I just love posting Picts}

Ms. Isabel had a Gymboree top and Jeans from Carter's and stride rite shoes. She's lovely.

  1. Isn't it the worst being GI sick when you're pregnant? Esp. since you don't want it to harm the baby. Hope you're feeling better!
