More sickness, and tiredness and busy-ness

This has been another one of those weeks from hell. Baby girl has been sick for the past few days. Her nose has been in a constant state of faucetness. It just keeps pouring and pouring out! Her poor nose is red, as well as her cheeks and the tops of her hands, as if I do not catch the snot quick enough (and by quick enough I mean within a second of her sneezing snot out) she is rubbing it with both hands all over her cheeks! She is so miserable! You can just tell by looking at her that she does not feel well at all.

And she hasn't been sleeping well for the past couple of nights. Which means no one else has been sleeping well. Except of course little man, who can sleep through just about anything - including baby girl screaming in his ear in the middle of the night. The only way I can get her back to sleep and to stay asleep for longer than an hour is to get up and go sit in the rocking chair and rock her to sleep. So, I've spent two nights sleeping in the rocking chair with her. And boy are we all tired!

She seems to be feeling a little better today, she's actually been playing and she ate really well. So hopefully tonight we will be able to get some good sleep!

This morning my husband was going to call in sick to work. And for the first time I was actually glad. But then of course he decided to go in - so I was a little disappointed. And it figures. Any other time I would encourage him to go to work and he would stay home ;) He must've known that I would have put him to work if he would've stayed home!

I haven't been able to get anything done around the house... I've just spent the past few days holding my sick baby girl :( Nothing makes you feel worse than having your baby sick and not being able to do anything about it.

I'm thinking tonight we will just have to drive the 35 miles and get some McDonald's for dinner. I have nothing quick at home and no dishes done to make anything with or eat anything with. And I'm just too tired to do anything today. Horrible.

In better news, we took the trip to my ultrasound appointment yesterday and everything is looking good! The baby has a heartbeat in the 150s and we got to see that little peanut of a baby! :) Its so damn exciting!! I just love seeing those images on the ultrasound. Its so reassuring.

I hope it gets better for you. Toot has had the stomach virus for 6 days. She has already lost 2 pounds which puts her just 1 pound heavier than her brother that is 2 years younger than her. I'm so glad everything went well with the sonogram!

I am soooo sorry about your baby being sick...I hate that! And I hope all gets better so you can get back to your normal routine. Get some rest. Curl up on the couch with your little on and snuggle!

Cherish those moments when they still fit in your arms.

Hope you get some sleep tonight

Sorry the baby is so sick -- I hope she feels like herself again, soon. It's been a while since any of us has been sick, but I remember the "I need Mommy" cuddle very well.

Congrats on a great ultrasound!

Oh I do hope she feels better! Riley has been getting a cold and you can just tell around his eyes that he is staring to feel bad. I sure hope he feels better before it gets bad!

Oh, no! It's hard to help them when they're that sick. I used to prop myself up in bed with my son in between my legs so that we were both sitting up. I could get a little sleep that way, and he slept pretty well.

Feel better! I'm thinking boy heart rate, too...

awww..your poor little baby...I hope she feels better soon...that must be awful...my little one hasn't been sick yet...I dread the day when that happens...she's only 4 months. I never had any ultrasounds when I was pregnant, and the suspense killed me...I thought I was having a boy the whole nine months and was shocked when out came a girl! Congrats to you on seeing your baby and hearing the heartbeat..what a special time...I cried the first time I heard my baby's heartbeat! I'll never forget that day!
