H1N1 . . . it seems.

I may or may not have the H1N1 virus.

I'm not actually sure because all I had to do was call the midwives and tell them I had flu-like symptoms and they immediately called in a prescription for Tamiflu.

Monday afternoon, as I was leaving work, my throat felt really itchy and I started to cough. By yesterday morning I had a low fever and I was coughing like crazy. When my fever finally hit 101, less than 24 hours after the first symptoms hit, I called for backup. That's when I got my medicine. Last night was pretty frightening, fighting to keep the fever down and to keep my little baby from boiling inside of me.

Luckily, my husband has been taking incredible care of me and my temperature right now is the most normal it has been since I've been pregnant. I'm just incredibly wiped out from the medicines and the battle inside my body. I'm hoping the worst is over.

The biggest bummer is that I'm missing some of the best fall weather yet.

Out of boredom, I'm trying to get Judge to play dress up. He hates it, but he sure looks adorable.

Oh no! Stupid piggy flu giving you and your little one a hard time. I'm glad you were able to get the Tamiflu though. I'm actually heading out to get my regular flu shot in just a minute. I will think of you.

And Judge is adorable!

that's the pits. i just had to be tested for swine flu. first off it's an uncomfortable test and then the whole time you are kinda freaking out wondering if you have to go and tell your people they should avoid you like the plague cuz you have the plague. ha ha. lucky me, it's just bronchitis, but i'm sorry to hear you aren't well. you get better and take care of that baby for me.

The human body does amazing things while you're prego. I got really sick while I was prego and I was worried for the baby, but the midwives re-assured me that the human body will fight the sickness for the new baby and keep them safe! hang in there and take it easy :)
