everybody is sick again. why does this keep happening? cocos explosive poos and jims sore throat seem to be the same virus, manifesting itself in different ways. now me and blaze got it. blaze obviously feels like shit – she had a touch of a fever yesterday and put herself to bed for a nap. she keeps stopping what she is doing and running back to me for hugs. she also keeps stopping what she is doing and running to the toilet. so far, no accidents.
all I’ve managed to eat today is a couple spoonfuls of yogurt and a tomato with a little bit of cheese. today I’m telling the baby, ‘stay in! not today!” but the reality is that a sick GI tract can actually bring on labour, since the uterus sits right up next to your intestines. if your intestines are upset, they can irritate the uterus into starting to contract.
saw my midwife yesterday and she basically said ‘keep going. i know its rough, but be patient, and trust her.’
