I totally get the "flu like symptoms" thing now

Today I just feel achy and tired and sore and run down and blah, almost like I'm getting sick. I just want to be at home in my bed all comfy.

Me too! DH asked me how felt today and I told him it felt like when I am coming down with something. Although at this point I will take it over morning sickness/nausea.

I am having a very very tired week. Everyday no energy and feeling worn down. Very hard to deal with when there are 3 kids and a household needing you! Lol

From the time I got home from work last night until now I felt like crap. Couldn't put even a mouthful of food in my mouth. Guess what? I just puked my guts out and I feel so much better. I should have just let it happen earlier but I am so scared of puking that I hoped it would just pass. Now I'm eating crackers in bed.

I think I'm going to call in sick tomorrow though as I would have to get up in 1.5 hours. Then tomorrow I need to do some serious snack/tummy soothing shopping when DH gets home.

Yes! I totally understand. From the time I step foot in the house after work I'm exhausted!! No matter what needs to get done! Thankfully the only time I don't feel good is when I don't have a little something in my stomach (hello, weight gain!) or when I eat or smell chicken.

And now I have the other problem (diarrhea). I can't win today. No food in my house looks good either. I had 1/2 a banana but couldn't finish it. I have been eating low carb/high protein for the last few years but none of my regular food looks good like cheese, eggs, even bacon! I made lime jello but its not set yet. Ug.

drink the jello. lol. You might just have a tummy bug on top of being preggo rachael! maybe. or maybe you have killer morning sickness. i've managed to not puke, but only with meds.... and careful food choosing.... and dint of will..... i thought today was going to be the worst. i was feeling totally rock-bottom at 10 this morning, broke down and took the meds.... and then i took an nap from 11-12. then i made lunch. and laid back down with my son from 1-2. he didn't kick as much today. i totally needed it. but i didnt get anything done in the house! i work afternoon/evenings... i thought i'd be out for the day and just scraping by, but after the naps i've felt great! just HUNGRY. i'm going to be SOOOOOO FAT at this rate! ice cream makes me feel better so i just keep eating it!

I feel so much better today so I'm wondering if it was a bug too. I had a slight fever as well (99.6 and my usual body temp is very low, around 95/96). I got some gravol natural though, the 100% ginger one, and it's helped settle my stomach since yesterday. I'm still having trouble eating though. NOTHING sounds good. I'm snacking on carrots right now though and getting by ok.
