Why, Yes, I Would Like Some Cheese with My Whine
I was sick this weekend. It started off as a cold and progressed into bronchitis.
The bronchitis made me cough like crazy, which made me a) pee my pants and b) puke, a lot. Then, my entire GI system got mad at me and staged a coup.
You can’t take cough suppressants while pregnant but you can take plain old Robitussin, an expectorant. It helped but did nothing to stop the a) peeing of the pants and 2) puking. Yes, it was awful.
I could not get out of bed for three days. Mr. MC had to take off work to take care of S.
I lost 5 pounds in 4 days.
This was supposed to be the week where I started “eating well” (ha!) as I have my glucose test on Friday. I still find most food repugnant and have virtually no appetite. When I do eat, a tiny bit fills me up. Then I go back to being nauseated.
And I think I am getting a migraine.
The good news: coughing and puking must sound awesome from the inside because I was always treated with a burst of activity from she-beastie.
