Sick Week

Yes. Sick WEEK.

A whole week. At home. In bed. With a fever. Cough. Congestion. The works.
I'm back on the prednisone. And antibiotics. For the THIRD time this pregnancy.

Mostly, I worry about Miller.
What is all of this doing to him?

My doctor made sure to look up every single medicine she gave me to make sure they were safe to take during pregnancy, which makes me feeling 100% better.
And thankfully, he has been wiggling a lot. I think it's his way of telling me, "Mom, I'm okay!"
My little man is tough. :) I love him so stinkin' much already!

After a week of rest and medicine and I am SO much better!
But the doctor still said no work this week and I'm going back in to see her today.

If you have a moment...
Say a little prayer for me to get COMPLETELY over this mess and for Miller to not be affected!

Thanks friends! Hope you're having a good Monday. Happy Thanksgiving Week!

I KNOW just how you feel! I was sick and out of work last week too, and my doc put me on antibiotics - and I was so worried about how it would affect my pregnancy. I am about 12 weeks now, so right at second trimester, and it still makes me so nervous! My doc assured me it was fine, and I guess it's better for our babies that we take our meds, get some rest and feel better than struggle on while being sick. I'll be thinking about you this week and hoping you feel better soon! Happy Thanksgiving week:)

Glad you're already feeling a bit better--glad the doctor is having you stay home this week, too!

Seriously love your blog (although I don't comment often)...praying for you and precious Miller!

I'm SO sorry you've been sick. I know how it feels to be sick and pregnant. Although I don't have the flu I have HG and it feels like the flu but 10x's worse and last for months.. I'm saying a pray for you and hope you feel better soon for baby!

So sorry you've been so sick. I am really praying for you that you get to feeling completely better soon! I know that has to be rough.
On Friday my doctor upped my nexium to 8-mg per day + 2 zantacs, I was super nervous about our baby since the dosage went way up, but the doc assured me and said this is what she did for her recent pregnancy, so it made me feel much better. At least you can feel some kicks, I'm still waiting on that.
Hope you get completely better soon girl!!

I'll be praying for you! I know exactly how you feel! I was sick all last week with that awful head cold and like you I can't take anything. They suggested tylenol and benadryl and neither even alleviated the pain :( I just had to let it run its course! But I sure hope you're finding some faster relief!

So sorry to hear you are sick. Saying extra prayers for you and Miller. I remember when I was pregnant I worried and researched everything ... My mother said: "that's the momma in you flourishing" and it is so true...

Leslie said...

Ugh, I am going thru this exact thing right now...minus the fever. I am so congested and can't stop coughing! :( Glad you are starting to feel better!!
