Today I left the house for the first time since Monday. Let's count the days...6! 6 days in the house. I was very sick for a few days, and then it took another few days for my body to recuperate. Apparently it was some sort of stomach flu, according to the OB/GYN nurses at Kaiser. It wouldn't have been so bad if I wasn't pregnant. My body was quickly depleted of electrolytes leaving me very dehydrated, which only made things worse. It kind of added "insult to injury." Ringing in the ears, staggering dizziness, and overall exhaustion made it a terrible time. I'm so thankful for pedalyte and an amazing husband who was there to take care of me. It amazes me when I hear people say, "I never felt better than when I was pregnant." Pregnancy hasn't been so nice to me. Through it all though, I know as soon as I see my baby boy's face or hear him cry, it will all be worth it! Thank God for understanding employers and dedicated family and friends. God is so good to us!
