(OT vent) What horrific timing!
So last night we figured out that DD has... pinworms. :banghead: For those who don't know, pinworms are highly contagious and take much diligent work (weeks of cleaning) to get rid of. It's almost like head lice. I'm supposed to be doing like 15 extra loads of laundry a week for the next month. Except, you know, I'm probably going to be in labor and taking care of a newborn at some point in the next month. Plus, you're supposed to treat everyone in the family if one person has it, but pregnant women can't take the medicine. So right now I'm pretty sure we're not going to be able to eradicate it before the baby comes... which means unless we're very, very careful, he'll get them too. :( And, of course, we're expecting house guests - my mom is coming in a week and a half and MIL is coming in two and a half weeks. I hope neither of them winds up catching them!
I do have a plan to try to make things easier on me, and I talked with my midwifes about non-medicinal treatments (though they said that pinworms was one of the few ailments for which there are really not many effective natural remedies). So we'll do our best and muddle through, but... oh, why couldn't this have hit our house a month ago? Or three months from now? Why now, right before the baby is due?? :cry:
