How do you get going again after pregnancy?
God you guys have been chatty today! I didnt dare see whether this website would be blocked by my new place of work! Will be good for a while yet.
Havent fully read back, will do later. I survived, it was good to use my brain and be appreciated Really easy commute, about 45 mins door to door incl dropping the kids, who were fine.
Vixo - a mummy friend of mine had twins then a singleton so would push the twins to pre school in the buggy with baby in babybjorn. She is pretty small so you'd see this little lady pushing huge buggy with no 3 attached to her and just be in awe! So poss a carrier is an option rather than another buggy if you dont want to go down that route?
Right, need food, and feel like I have a million things to do after not being at home for the day, but in reality I probably dont. I have no idea how mums work full time with kids - hats off to those who do!
wow, TT. well done you. great name too. hope this will make you laugh - i had a 3-legged cat called Oscar (after Oscar Pistorius). he's a great character
caro - glad work was ok too
and vixo - in awe of all your activities with a baby in tow
wow to the race reports, girls. you are phenomenal
mad busy at work here. calf muscle still hurts if i walk any distance and hurts up and down hill. having a massage tonight.
went to GP this morning about coughing and wheezing. she couldn't hear anything but then unless i am exercising, i don't wheeze. she did give me an inhaler and also gave me clarithrimycin. i reacted really badly either to that one or erithrimycin - can't remember which it was - 4 years ago so am paranoid about taking it in case it happens again. i am going to hold off until i don't have the kids (ie next week) in case i end up vomiting like i did last time.
talk about vomit - poor poor J. he was very sick on saturday night and then fine during the day on sunday. sunday night - more diarrhoea and a bit of sickness and then fine all day monday. fine all night monday and absolutely fine all day tuesday. then tuesday night from 2am he didn't stop being sick and having diarrhoea. T took him to the gp yesterday afternoon and he said it's just a bug, but the poor boy. he has been drinking diarolyte (the boy deserves a medal) and hasn't had any diarrhoea since yesterday but was still retching this morning so still isn't eating. he hasn't been at school all week. poor poor poppet.
oh and i had a chest xray too today but have to wait 10 days for the results? GP appt, referral to chest clinic and xray all done within 2 hours of each other, and then 10 days for the results? seems a bit long to me. anyway i know there won't be anything that shows up on it (or at least i hope there won't), but even so - seems odd.
god you are right, EF. i should check back. seems the 10 days is the standard time for xray results. it's what GP said it would be and also what the hosp said. seems a long time for a standard xray result, but maybe it's normal.
just phoned T and J was sick again this morning in the car. he hasn't had anything to eat at all since tuesday night. i am so worried about him.
thanks vixo. i have just checked back on here and i didn't post which one it was annoyingly! but i am fairly sure it was erythromycin. i just can't quite bring myself to take the clarithromycin now in case i am ill, as i get the kids tomorrow and J is still poorly and the last thing i need is to be ill myself if i have to look after him. given that i have had this whatever it is now for 2 months, and i'm not actually really ill (just can't exercise), i guess waiting to take the clarithromycin for another week won't kill me. can't exercise anyway this weekend as have the kids.
and yes, EF. one of the joys of WFH is that you can 'flex' your working day! so do it!
yes, i think if J still bringing up water tomorrow, i will have to take him back to GP. he is being good and drinking diarolyte and water but even so, i am so worried about him.
vixo - asked T to give him some blackcurrant squash (not the sugar free stuff) but he said no. i think he thinks diarolyte is a meal replacement thing (like complan). tried to explain it isn't, but he wouldn't listen. i am getting very anxious now but there isn't anything i can do. i can just ask T and have to leave it up to him to make the decision. it's the worst thing in the world knowing your child is ill and not being able to be there to help when you easily could be.
i am still coughing up dark green gunk when i do cough. gp thought it was possible there was still an infection there. not sure myself. i am not unwell other than the cough.
ah yes, just remembered. gp mentioned whooping cough, too. wondering if i haven't had the same bug as JT!!
thanks vixo. the kids went to T yesterday morning, and i get them back tomorrow morning.
it's weird because normally it is T who is trying to feed them when they are sick. in fact, he would rather give him solid food now - he said he was going to give him some toast. but given that J sicked up water in the car, i thought he would be best sticking with just fluids for now. i need to learn to step back and just let T manage the situation. i find that very hard because every bone in my body just wants to scoop J up and look after him. the anxiety i am feeling is not helpful really. certainly not to him, because i can't even see him!
