This week has been… interesting. Go away if you don’t like hearing sick stories.
Remember a couple weeks ago when I had the world’s most disgusting stomach bug? Well I may have misspoke. I have now officially had the worst stomach bug ever.
On Saturday morning Stephen woke up feeling a bit off. Our initial theory was allergies. The second theory was that he ate something the night before that had been fried with shrimp (he’s allergic to shellfish). Our third theory (and the one I’m sticking with) is a stomach bug. He was laying on the couch with a big bowl next to him, you know, just in case. GOOD THING.
Stephen’s mom got it on Sunday. She had the vomits and a fever.
I stayed home with Jansen on Monday since my MIL was still feeling yucky. I am so so glad I did. I felt fine all day and then 3:00 hit and OH MY GRACIOUS. I apologize for this next sentence. Having the intense vomits and the poops at the same time is definitely the only activity in hell. Definitely.
I was sick over and over and over for about 4 or 5 hours. I cannot even tell you how awful it was. Jansen was home with me. For the most part he was really good about leaving me alone to be sick, but whenever I was in his bathroom he would come stand on his stool at the sink and “spit like mommy.” Then he’d say, “No more spitting mommy. I no like it. It yucky. It too loud.”
Then the fever hit. Oh gosh. And the aches. It was just all so so bad. Everything hurt. You know that feeling where you want to collapse on your bed but the sheets hurt your skin? That. Tuesday was bad too. The sick part was over but I was dehydrated and still so sore and achy. I didn’t want to move or think.
I went back to work yesterday and felt ehh. The nausea has not let up. It may be pregnancy related at this point but it’s still awful. I think I could throw up at any minute if I sat in front of a toilet for 3 seconds. I have no appetite but I’m forcing myself to eat so I can keep this baby healthy. Two nasty stomach bugs and I’m just barely over 10 weeks. I’m so not on board with this.
