Don’t eat the eggs!

I have been sick, sick, sick for a week now.  I spent last Saturday curled around the toilet throwing up all night.  I was suffering from some form of food poisoning and was sick every 40 minutes on the dot.  I was worried that the food poisoning combined with the constant vomiting would hurt the baby as she was kicking up a storm inside. After the 4th go round, we started packing up to go to the emergency room and my hubby mentioned paging my OBGYN.  At 12:30am, my OB said that there was no need to go to the hospital and that the baby was well protected.  He called in a prescription to my 24 hour pharmacy (i heart CVS) to help with the vomiting.  After 2 more trips to the bathroom, we finally got the medicine in me and within minutes I was finally able to sleep (at 4am). 

Needless to say, that little incident has screwed up our entire week.  The house is an utter disaster, the kitchen is a wreck, the laundry is piled up, and poor Oliver has been housebound while I’ve been recovering.  I had a couple more nights of vomiting, but I think those were due to being generally screwed up and not eating.  My little girl had a couple of well placed kicks to my stomach a few times and up everything came again.  I’ve lost 4 pounds in the last 6 days.  Being sick and being 26 weeks pregnant totally sucks.  The last thing I remember eating before I felt bad was a scrambled egg and sausage concoction that my hubby made for brunch on Saturday.  We were worried about the whole salmonella outbreak that’s been going around, but our eggs weren’t packaged at the contaminated plants.  Regardless, they are all in the trash now.

Today was the first day I actually had full meals and felt better.  To make up for being a slug of a mother, I took my LO (little one) out today for some fun.  Now I’m pooped and am wondering if we did too much too soon?  sigh…  This whole parenting thing is tough.

We got up extra early this morning and I took him to a local splash park at the pool.  He loves, loves, loves water and had a great time.  Of course, the one day we decide to try it out it’s 75 degrees and cloudy!!! We’ve been dying from heat here and today is the day it happens to be cool??? another sigh…

His favorite spot was the broken fountain which just gurgled. 

The splash park was pretty cool.  The concrete floor was concave to allow the water to pool up to about 2 or 3 inches.  Each corner had it’s own water feature ranging from sprinklers, to fountains, to water cannons, etc… On a warmer day (HOT day) this would have been much more fun.  As it were, we were the only people there.

Wow, I was tired.  I didn’t get much sleep this week and still didn’t feel too good, but I felt bad for Oliver being trapped in the house.  He had a blast until his fingers and toes went numb from hypothermia…

After a seriously long nap, we went downtown to Marbles so he could run out his excess energy.  His favorite stop this trip?  The post office where he “drove” the truck for at least 20 minutes delivering mail. 

He loves wheels and anything that he can spin/turn.  Bigger kids kept trying to push him out of the way, but he held that steering wheel TIGHT and just glared up at them.  Don’t try to get between him and his wheels!

My plan somewhat worked.  I am now back to being exhausted, but my LO is soundly and deeply asleep right now.  I wore his little butt out and he loved every minute of it. 

Tomorrow, I tackle the mountain of dishes in the kitchen and track down those foul smells from the fridge.  What a week…
