Poor S. is sick. Sick, sick, sick as a dog. Maybe this is her payback for going through the entire first trimester with nary a pregnancy symptom. So far today she's exploded from both ends (ahem--that is gross. Sorry to be so graphic.) and barely wants to eat or drink anything. She also has a smidgy-bitty-bit of a fever. Obviously I'm concerned. At first we thought it was bad heartburn, so I bought her some pills much stronger than your average Tums. Next, Imodium. Nothing doing. It's all coming out anyway. At any rate, she's sleeping soundly now, which means she's finally gotten comfortable. Luckily I was home most of the day today, since I had taken a personal day from school to contest a speeding ticket. Which I totally won. Maybe I was destined to go to law school and missed my calling. Or maybe it was fate that S. had to get sick on a day I would be home to take care of her. At any rate, I'm worried about keeping her hydrated, both for her sake at the pumpkin's. She doesn't really want to eat or drink much of anything, so I'm trying to force it upon her. It's only sort of working. I know she's doing the best she can.

Anyone get really sick during pregnancy when it wasn't necessarily pregnancy-related?

I didn't, but one of E's coworkers did. She delivered in December and everyone was fine!!

I am so sorry she is sick. I got sick on Saturday night on something I ate and it was the first time in the whole pregnancy...but no fever or anything. I hope she feels better soon.
