Rough Monday Morning

Monday, November 26, 2007
Some days just start better than others. Samuel woke up white as a sheet and shaking this morning, and I knew he was sick immediately. It actually was a very similar experience to a few weeks ago when I was supposed to host playgroup, and he overslept, then woke up sick. Shortly after he woke up, he threw up all over blankets he was covering up with on the couch. A little bit got on the couch, but I was able to clean it. Samuel went into the tub, and everything else went into the laundry. Up and down the basement stairs all morning doing laundry. Samuel laid in the bathtub feeling poorly for about an hour, then I got him up & put him back to bed. He slept for about 30 minutes, then woke up because I set off the smoke alarms making myself a breakfast scramble. Shortly thereafter, I spilled a bowl of pomegranate seeds all over the kitchen floor. The juice from the seeds splattered every which way. At this point, I started to feel sick myself, but I ate my scramble & drank lots of water, and felt much better. Later in the afternoon, I went to my prenatal appointment, and everything looks great. I only gained 1/2 a pound last week, which is amazing considering it was Thanksgiving. Blood pressure, urinalysis, pulse, baby's heartbeat--everything looks great & is normal. I'm looking forward to a normal & natural birth. I keep telling myself, "You can do this, Karli!"

This evening, I went to book-club. We discussed The Sea by John Banville. It was a good discussion, but I did start to feel extremely tired by around 8:30PM. I don't even remember my head hitting the pillow tonight; I slept soundly.
