Down For The Count

On Friday night, I noticed a little tickle in my throat. It had been a really busy day, and I didn't think much of it. Yesterday morning, my throat was sore when I woke up, but I felt okay. I decided to sleep in so I could get some rest.

I was still feeling okay that evening, so we decided to go ahead with our plans, and hang out at my best friend's house. As the night went on, my morning sickness seemed to get worse. We ended up leaving a bit early, because I didn't want to get sick at her house. On the short drive home, I began to get chills and body aches. Sure enough, when I got home, I had a fever. I headed to bed, but the body aches were so bad that I tossed and turned until 6 AM.

I was miserable today. I had a high fever, chills, body aches, a sore throat and cough, and a bad headache. I honestly think I have the flu! It's been years since I last had it. I forgot just how nasty it is.

Here's hoping the rest of my family doesn't catch it. I know the flu shot doesn't cover every strain of the flu, but they all got the shot (I didn't because I just kept putting it off), so hopefully I have a strain that the shot covers. I'm not skipping my shot again!

I'm going to give my doctor a call tomorrow to see what I should do. I typically would just use the wait and see approach, but I don't feel comfortable due to the fact that I'm 16 weeks pregnant and still have bad morning sickness. I'm just worried about little Nugget!

I'm hoping it goes away soon! I need to get better ASAP, because Lexie's birthday is on Tuesday, and her party is on Saturday. Dylan's off of school tomorrow, so I'm going to spend the day resting!
