Something Going Around

I mean besides all the pregnant gals...there really is something nasty going around. Two of the gals pregnant with in a week of my date are really sick with flu and/or major congestion etc. I've been reading about it and am simply praying that I too am not coming down with it. I am at the beginning of something and am hoping to head it off with vitamins (lots), rest, and fluids. It's all not making my tummy feel very good either and nothing sounds good so I don't guess I'm eating as I should.

AND we are trying to catch the whole potty training thing while we can cause M is finally waking up fairly regularly with dry diapers. That's cool. Still there is a little bit of battle of the wills. I've heard the words, "No, I don't want to," or " no, I don't have too" a few more times than my nerves can generally tolerate. Coaxing doesn't generally work, so I just tell her that when Mommy says______ (whatever, fill in the blank), your response is "yes ma'am." and we obey. That usually does it. (at least for now). And while I was rocking her before bedtime tonight she told me she had to go potty, so we went...even though she was all ready for bed and in a diaper! AND on her initiative. That was cool. we made it 7 or 8 times and only to close calls but no big accidents.

I'm trying to focus this for the next two weeks, so I hope and pray that we don't get as sick as it seems everyone else has been getting. It seems especially rough on us pregnant gals, especially when we have another toddler at home! Please say an extra prayer for all us sickies this week!

Yep. The dreadful cold and even more dreadful stomach bug are making the rounds. My cold has hung on for over a week now b/c you only want to put so much medicie into your pregnant body, you know. But I'd rather have a cold than an upset stomach.

Definitely taking my hand sanitizer wherever I go!

Hope the potty training continues to go well this week! Won't we be glad when that is over!!!

sorry you are feeling icky, SIL! :( I REALLY hope I didn't give anything to you (or Kevin) as we both are getting over "the funk." I am still coughing quite a bit, but hopefully am generally better. And I do feel for you, cause I remember when I was pregnant with Stone how dreaded it was to get any kind of sickness, cause you can't take anything good for it! Will be praying for you!

Hope you don't get the flu, that's all I'm saying. The ER doctor told me Sunday that four people had been diagnosed with it that day. It is miserable. They put me on some medicine which I am terrified is going to hurt my baby, but it makes me feel oh so good!
