{playing catch-up}: 31 weeks

Let's see, 31 weeks involved lots of pain in my lower back and pelvis (SPD is no joke, people), lots of Braxton-Hicksing (enough that once or twice I lay down to rest and just calm things down a bit), and recovering from a 24-hour stomach bug that left me feeling wiped out for two or three days.

And can I just say, it didn't feel very fair to make it through four months of hyperemesis and then get a stomach bug a couple of months later.  I think I've vomited enough to last me for the rest of my life now, thank you very much.

Dear little one, 
I am generally not a very worry-prone person, but when I came down with a stomach bug of some sort and wasn't sure what might be causing it, I found myself worrying about you.  I wondered if it might be some sort of food poisoning, and I even called the midwifery practice to ask someone if I should be concerned.  The midwife I spoke with assured me that you were well-protected, and fortunately, you survived the experience just fine.   
You weigh over three pounds now, and get the hiccups quite frequently.  I love you, and am so glad you're doing well in there!

  1. So not fair! I had two rounds of stomach flu after months of prego vomit too. It's just misery!!! So sorry!

  2. We have a stomach bug going through our family right now (I'm hiding downstairs because it is Matt's turn... and considering sleeping on the couch instead of in bed. Does that make me a bad wife?) and I agree - after two bouts of hyperemesis, you should be given a no stomach bug for the rest of your life pass!!
