Stomach flu, part II

I'm sad to report that B's vomiting episode Weds night was no fluke. I started to feel queasy Saturday and threw up all night. It was just awful. As another blogger posted about her recent bout with this nasty bug, I discovered much to my chagrin that throwing up this far along in pregnancy also means simultaneously wetting your pants. Good times, huh?

Thankfully B was not sick when I was - but I did have to deal with a spectacularly poopy diaper, making breakfast, and entertaining him while still feeling like I should be hovering over the toilet. It was pretty awful. Thankfully it was Sunday and I already had B booked for the Baby Kennel so I could go to an SMC meeting (which I of course had to miss), so I was able to drag our butts over there, drop him off, and spend the day lying in bed recovering. 

I'm still not 100%. I went to a meetup today that involved a child-friendly restaurant, but I just couldn't manage any food. I hope B doesn't get it from me and we just keep trading it back and forth. Two episodes of stomach flu in two months is a bit more than I can bear, really. 

Right now I'm in the middle of three loads of laundry and have about four trips up and down my front stairs to take out the mass quantities of garbage. No rest for the weary, eh? 


  1. Yuck! I cannot believe how many people are getting a stomach bug this year. I hope you are back to normal soon. (and thanks for the chuckle - I wish that fun aspect of puking would have went away now that I am not pregnant anymore)

  2. Ugh, that sounds awful! Glad you are feeling (slightly) better.

  3. Oh yuck. I hope you're feeling better soon. And from your last post: glad to hear Bumpus is doing better with you in the mornings. Who knows, maybe the extra attention he's getting from you is starting to make a difference!

  4. Oh no! I hope you're feeling better!
