Still VERY sick and miserable.
I have never felt like this in my life.
The fever is down to about 100 now, but I am still so worried about the baby.
Lots of painful cramping.
The doctor is getting me in as soon as it is somewhat safe. They will do an ultrasound and check the baby and everything surrounding it. They are worried as well. They are trying to get me in on Thursday.
I started the Tamiflu (the antibiotic for Swine Flu given to pregnant women and kids under age 2). It makes me really nauseated, but at least it is something.
Until then, I am staying in bed. I don't feel like doing anything else anyway.
And don't worry, I don't plan on spreading it. Of course, I would never do that if I could help it. I will stay out of every ones way for quite a while, especially my plethora of friends and family who are pregnant and/or expecting babies very soon. I pray that they and their babies will all be protected from this horrid virus.
I am also praying that none of my family members get this as well. I hope that the Lord will place them in an invisible protective bubble or something.
A big thanks to those wonderful souls who have brought and are bringing dinner. I know several others are sick with various illnesses as well, and I feel a little silly, but I have a great Relief Society President who happens to be my neighbor, and awesome visiting teachers who are very on the ball, and honestly, we really do need it. Sorry I didn't see you when you brought dinner over, and won't be seeing you, but just know that I am so grateful, and I know Ben is too. Also, a huge thanks to those who have been so kind to take our kids so Ben can get a few hours of work in. you are all lifesavers.
I always get terribly homesick when I feel so awful, and it means so much when people care, and we are lucky to be surrounded by people like that.
My mom ALWAYS gave me 7up, Popsicles and something warm and yummy to eat when I was sick as a child. My visiting teacher brought over those very things yesterday, along with some flowers and the best soup I have ever had. She had no idea that my mom always did that for me. It made my day and brought so much comfort. Thank you.
