a not-so-fun first

well, yesterday was a first. but not the fun, get-out-the-camera/baby-book first. Not by a long shot. Yesterday i had my first stint at home all day with Eli while i felt like i was going to die. the nasty stomach bug hit me (hit Pk Sunday and despite best efforts i caught it). i won’t divulge details but it was brutal. Eli seemed to sense my pain and actually took two solid naps for me/on me (during which I actually napped too!). i felt like death until about 7pm when i was able to eat some soup and crackers and showered (side note…this is the first time since Eli was born that i literally have been in my pajamas ALL day!)….and it was like a light at the end of the tunnel! i went to bed early, slept a little rough with some nausea spurts, but feel better this morning. I’d say I’m at about 75%! now I am hoping Eli does not get this 18/24 hour funk!!

    Ug, I’m going through this right now. I’m trying to drink some sprite and stay hydrated so my milk doesn’t completely dry up. Did you have any issues with that, or is the 24 hr window to short to affect it?

      Oh no! I’m sorry. I was lucky and it lasted only about 18 hours. I tried to sip sparkling water and ate toast and some soup. It didnt seem to impact my supply since it was short-lived. try some electrolyte water too (either G2 or just regular electrolyte water). I’ve heard it helps supply and may help you stay hydrated. Feel better!!
