The Flu has hit with Force and Bad Timing,,,,,

Lets start last Thursday the 11Th.

(Tuesday, two nights before this my girls were up all night with the stomach flu. I thought it was food poisening, boy was I wrong!)

I was stranded at home with a dead car. The battery had died on us the day before and we couldn't do anything about it until the next day. Thursday my mom came in from California to help for when the baby comes. Jimmy picked her up and everything seemed to be going well, especially after he got the car working again. As the day progressed, I started to feel achy and sick to my stomach. But I had been feeling that every night so I didn't think much about it. That was until it started to hurt so bad that I actually started crying "like a child, cause my tummy hurt." I was begging Jimmy to just take it away some how. He gave me a blessing of comfort and soon after I threw up..(I have not throw up since I was 18. Not even once during my other pregnancies.) All day Friday my mom took care of me and the girls while Jimmy was at work. Saturday came around and I was feeling a little better, but still weak. Then Sunday I got ready for Church feeling pretty good only to find out that my mom has the stomach flu as well. She ended up staying in bed for the whole day just feeling miserable. As the night came Jimmy started to feel a little nauseous. Sure enough he was up all last night just feel horrible.

So now I have a problem...I had a scheduled induction at 6:30 in the morning on today. ( I was fourth in line, so I felt there was a small chance that I would get in. So I started to prepare myself for Tuesday instead of Monday.) Well I called in to the hospital this morning to tell them that I would not be able to come in because EVERYONE was sick. Before I could say anything the woman told me that I could get in....I was shocked. Here was my chance to get in and go have my baby TODAY and I WAS THE ONE CANCELING! Now my chances have gone way way down for this to happen Tuesday. There is already four people on the waiting list for Tuesday and most likely I will not get in. The farther and farther this gets pushed out, the faster my moms day to leave approaches.

People say that I might just go into labor myself, but listen....I am not that LUCKY people! Anyways..that is where everything stands at the moment! I guess you win FLU! I hate that you have impeccable timing. You know how to ruin everything!

Why?! It's not fair that pregnant women have to deal with being sick too. I'm so sad for you. I can't imagine turning down an induction either. Good luck! I'm prayin' for ya.

YUCK! I'm SOOOOO SORRY! That sucks all around...first everyone is miserable, then you WANT to have a baby but have to cancel. Oh Man, that is hard! What an emotional ride, geesh. I hope EVERYONE gets feeling better STAT! However, hard it is for your Mom to leave, you have great friends down here that can help ( hint hint). Let me know and I'll be there in a minute. Good luck!
