I feel like I'm complaining entirely too much... but what else is a crazy pregnant woman to do? ;)
We finally got to the point where the two little ones were at least getting over being sick. I think Sunday night was the first night that neither of them woke up coughing in the middle of the night.
Monday I had my appointment with the diabetic nutritionist for gestational diabetes. And I was so overwhelmed. She gave me at least 50 pages/pamphlets and a book to read to start making meal and snack plans and such. (I'm finally making some sense of it all, it's very complicated!).
Monday night after dinner little man started looking not so well. We took his temp and it was 101, so we gave him some tylenol. The tylenol just didn't help and he just got worse - he couldn't get comfy to get to sleep and he would finally drift off and then wake up crying. He would sit up and he was really acting like his stomach hurt. We were also thinking that maybe he was having a rebound of the flu... And to top that off he told me that he accidentally ate something! It took me a while but I finally got out of him that he accidentally ate a sucker. Well, there are a few things that he calls suckers, and who knows he could have eaten something that he thought was a sucker. So we were freaking out and ready to take him to the ER at 2am.
Around that time, the dog got up and started acting like she had to go out. I told her to go lay down thinking that we just disrupted her sleep and I really didn't feel like letting her out at 2am... didn't want her to go out and start barking or anything... Let me just say that next time, I will totally let her out. 'Cause I woke up (after not hardly sleeping all night) to a nice pile on the floor...
So we called the clinic as soon as they opened in the morning and took little man in... Immediately after checking in his ears the Dr proclaimed that little man had an ear infection. Horribly we were pretty relieved. We had been thinking the worst.
He was down for maybe about a day until the antibiotic kicked in. And thankfully they gave us a prescription for some ear drops to numb the pain :) Ahhhh...
I am just so completely exhausted. And of course with the gestational diabetes, emergency clinic visits, and regular appointments, I have been on the run entirely too much. This week alone we were at the Dr's Monday, Tuesday, today and then we have Tweenie's eye glass appointment tomorrow (since she flushed her glasses down the toilet). Then since my glucose testing numbers have been a little bit over what they should be, I have to go meet with the nutritionist again on Monday... a re-check for little man's ear on Wednesday, and then my Dr's appointment on Thursday.
Ugh. I'm just glad that next week is finals week for the classes I'm teaching. Hopefully I can get some down time soon!!
