sick baby! and sick mama whine...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

one of my older kids brought home a really nasty cold and now they all 4 have it (and so do i, but moms don't count lol) elora has a runny nose and coughs. it started out as coughing on her mucous but today it's a drier sounding cough. i've just been feeding her extra times through the day and pushing her naps as long as she'll sleep. the snot isn't hindering her feeding and she's still pretty happy and breathing normally so i'm waiting it out. but yuck! i've never had a booby baby get sick so much :( at 7 weeks she had a cold/diahrrea/uti and was hospitalized for the uti and diagnosed with bladder reflux. at least she didn't need fluids. babies + schoolkids aren't a good mix, i guess? my last babe was 9+ years ago.

my ears are driving me crazy..usually a hot, wet rag held on them helps but it's not now and they just won't pop!! and i have felt so horrible but there's no resting for me. i feel pitiful and worthless when i am sick and no one takes care of me after all i do for my family :( boohoo lol my dh works nights and sleeps days and the kids just had a 4 day weekend, with everyone but dh sick. i finally gave in and took some sudafed,l i know it;s risky to milk production but i was desperate!

Oh, no! Hugs to you and I hope your whole family feels better soon. Including you. Moms count!

aww, there's nothing worse than feeling terrible and then realizing nobody is going to do all those little things we do for everyone else when they're sick irked.gif  I hope you feel much better really soon.  In the meantime, do whatever you have to do for yourself to make this bug go away!
