I got sick right after I got home from the hospital too... I figure since it was 3-4 days later, I probably picked mine up *in* the hospital. My husband and I were both pretty sick, but none of the kids had it, so I don't think they were responsible for a change. ;) The baby didn't get sick at all, probably because I am nursing. My fever never got above 100.2 though, so my midwife wasn't worried (I was worried about uterine infection @ first because of smelly lochia, & fever + 26 hours of ruptured membranes).
So I just got over being sick. After a trip to L&D for a high fever and lots of stiffness and aches, they determined I had a virus. I got it like 3 days after I got home : (
I guess because of being sick, when I went to the pediatrician, baby lost 5 ounces. She pooped a lot yesterday, but has not pooped today, so I am a little worried and hoping things go back to normal in the next day or two. My mom keeps bugging to come and visit again (she has been once already), and I think she was the one who got me sick! And now she wants to bring friends. And she is not one to not touch the baby, I am shocked the baby isn't sick honestly, she was holding her after I asked her not to. So I had to tell her the pediatrician said no visitors for 4 weeks because it's flu/cold season. And it has been bad around here.
Since the fever has broke though, I am beginning to feel somewhat normal, just worried about the baby's weight a bit.
