Not so lucky

The past two days I haven't felt like myself.

Super tired.

Bitchy, really.

Of course, I blame it on being pregnant, but I rarely feel crappy and so bitchy while I am pregnant.

Then yesterday, I woke up, and I felt like I could sleep for days. and days. I had waves of nausea, but I blamed it on over-tiredness. Wondering if all this skiing and running around is just too much?

The girls gave me the run around yesterday. Mairead was up to her no-listening-fit-throwing antics. It was so bad, I put her in her room and took a nap with Lilah.

I woke up, and was starving. I hadn't eaten since breakfast, so I made myself a PB&Fluff sandwich. I still felt nauseated. I couldn't wait for the day to be over.

Then, my savior walked through the door.......ahh, daddy's home. By then, I felt really, really crappy. I plopped my rear on the couch to lay down, and then, I started to feel worse. Then, Kevin yells........I remember that tone.

"Lilah threw up!" 

OH NO. Please, not again...please. I grabbed her and we took a hot shower together. She seemed fine after that. Threw up just a little after, but was fine after that. And, thankfully, is great this morning!

Me on the other hand, started to feel like I was going to throw up. And sure enough, I did. Throwing up while pregnant is horrific, and add a cerclage with a history of preterm labor, I am one nervous mamma.

Then, as Mairead was eating dinner, she threw up. In her bowl. Nice one, Mairead! Three down....that didn't take long!

The girls perked up nicely, and didn't seem at all phased by throwing up like they did back in December. Me on the other way. I felt like I was struck by a freight train. I was cramping and just feeling really crappy. I hoped the cramps would just go away.

Thankfully, we all just threw up once, but I had cramping and pressure down below all night. I knew it was because I was dehydrated. I tried to sip on water each time I woke up overnight.

Here we are, 930, and Mairead was great, and well enough to head to school, Lilah is fine, too....Clara has some funky poops going on, but no signs of the pukies from her or Kevin. I am still cramping, but it has lessened a bit. I have been able to eat, and drink some tea, and I think just relaxing for the day on the couch is probably the best choice. I may call my OB if they don't go away...

Ugh. Thankfully this was short-lived, I don't think I could have handled another December repeat, especially since I wasn't spared this time!


  1. Oh I totally know how you feel! I too am expecting and a few weeks ago had the whole 24 stomach flu thing. It was horrible! I hope the relaxation helped I know it helped me a ton that time. Now if only the third trimester tiredness would go away! Well I guess it will soon enough you know in 3 months or so.

  2. Yes, and then an entirely new spectrum of tiredness comes, but so completely and utterly worth it!

    There is NOTHING like snuggling up with a newborn!
