mamachef - those are great diapers!! we cloth diaper here, but the only thing I make are covers (I knit) I do sew, but we like prefolds so much we just use those. I'm thinking for sewing dipes you'd really need a serger as well, something I've been meaning to get someday :)
speaking of which I shouldn't have sold off all the newborn/small prefolds after Z outgrew them, whups! I think I was too focused on keeping our dipe stash small and cheap or something, wasn't thinking ahead ! So I'm starting to stalk diaperswappers for stuff I need :)
its been a messy few days here - we've all been sick since mid last week (stuffy, sore throat, the mr. has a terrible cough as well) and Z had a fever friday and saturday. Then, weirdly, Monday morning, I threw up right when I got up. I chalked it up to morning sickness, even though it had been 2 weeks since I threw up, just because it was the typical empty stomach throw up (just bile) etc. So I ate some toast, hoping that would settle things (usually eating makes it better) threw that up 10min later.
hmmm, weird. But figure its still just morning sickness, and will pass, I should eat something maybe less dense then the bread I have, dunno. So I go to work. Still feeling crappy though - and getting more and more achy as well. Have some dry cornflakes. Throw THAT up. Now I'm guessing something else is going on. I call my husband to come get me since I feel so awful I don't want to drive. Get home, have some water, throw THAT up!! now I'm worried. We call the med center (I work at a lab, associated with MIT) and they say I am the third person to call today with the same symptoms - evidently a nasty stomach bug is going around the lab. Nothing to do with m/s at all! whups. They say if I can't keep down water to go to the ER, but try sucking on some ice cubes first. That does work, thankfully. But I spend the rest of yesterday in bed, basically wanting to die I felt so awful. My stomach was SO unhappy, and I had a terrible headache, and was all achy and sore from throwing up so much. Luckily the mr. handled Z well, and even dealt with nighttime and his wakeups so I could sleep.
but then first thing this morning, the mr. throws up. Tag, now he's it! So he's now a mess in bed like I was yesterday. And I'm not quite 'better' yet but at least can keep mild things down so far (I've had some chicken soup) We're just hoping Z doesn't get it, though I'm not sure how he'd avoid it, but maybe he's less susceptible if I've passed him some antibodies or something!
