The oldest question

Which came first: The horrible cold that led to puking, cramps and frequent runs for the bathroom OR puking, cramps and frequent runs for the bathroom as a sign of early labor, leaving a 9 month pregnant woman tied to her couch and stopwatch, time contractions instead of sleeping?

Ok, so maybe not the oldest question.

As a public service announcement for all pregnant women, please take note. If you are sick – even just a little sick, like coughing or a running nose or a symptom that’s kind of annoying but wouldn’t cause an otherwise healthy person to take a day off or skip a party – STAY THE EFF AWAY. My body is already dealing with one 8 lb parasite, it doesn’t need millions of tiny ones running amok. Thanks bunches.

    Oh gosh I’m sorry. Are you OK? Do you need to call your doc or something? I’m so sorry you have the double whammy of sickness and a baby. How far apart are the contractions?

    Sending you hugs and vitamins.

    They are (sort of unfortunately) not real contractions, although last night I considered going in to L&D when they were 5 minutes apart for a little while. It didn’t last. The only concern for the baby is dehydration can affect my amniotic fluid, so I’m trying to drink as much tea and water as possible. I already have a doctor’s appointment Monday, I’m going to ask for an ultrasound to check Baby E’s fluid levels but unless throwing up actually starts real labor all I can do is rest and cough. Thanks for the hugs honey!

    Oh this sounds miserable. Hang in there, I hope those contractions kick in SOON!
