Some days

WARNING: Do not read if you do not want to hear about Jill's bodily functions.

There are some days I am not interested in repeating. One of them was yesterday. Jill threw up six times, between 2:00 pm and 9:00 pm. Six times. Four of those times I was holding her. So, she and I went through a lot of outfits yesterday, and I have a lot of gross laundry to do. She also, of course, pooped out of some clothes yesterday as well. We went to the doctor, and somehow (I think miraculously) she is not dehydrated. She's on week 2 1/2 of diarrhea, and I've started to wonder if that is just her normal poop. She is mostly breastfeed, so her poop should somewhat liquid-y. She was just having more solid ones, so when she got sick at the beginning of the month and went back to liquid, I assumed it was diarrhea. Now that we're half way through the month and she's only had two somewhat solid poops, I wonder if I'm overreacting and this is just her normal. We took a stool sample to the hospital last night though, so I guess we'll find out soon.

1 plastic container of poop
2 ounces of Pedialyte
3 trips to the bath tub
4 new outfits for Mommy
5 times awaken from slumber
6 times Jill threw up

(Haha, sing that tune!!)

That aside, I am really grateful to be a mom and have a normally very healthy daughter. No matter how much I complain or how little sleep I get, I wouldn't change a thing about my life.


  1. I think there is a 24 hour vomit bug with lingering diarrhea that is going around. Benji had it, then I had it, then Scotty had it. And even my dad said that he had it last week. Ugh, I know how horrible that is.

    By the way, I saw on Sara's blog that you were asking about Dr. Zabrecki (spelling?). I've seen her before. What's that about????? *raising eyebrows*

  2. Good luck! Here's hoping that today will be better!

  3. Haha. No eyebrow raising necessary. :) Just getting a doctor to go in for the yearly check-up. :) I was never able to go back for the 6 week one to make sure my stiches were okay. (I know they are, because if everything didn't heal, I'd be in a lot of pain whenever I moved haha, but still, I like the reassurance.) And I do believe that pap tests save lives. :) I'm actually still not capable of getting pregnant.

  4. What a rough day! Sick babies are the worst! I hope she feels better soon! You need a break. Come to Vegas! ;)

  5. Got it. I was wondering, because I know you are still nursing and I thought that might have an impact. Regardless, I think all the docs at 7 Hills are pretty nice.

  6. Wait, I hope you're not thinking that breastfeeding keeps you from getting pregnant, cuz it doesn't. My husband's aunt is proof of that, as well as one of my coworkers.

    It's entirely possible that I'm missing something, but I would be remiss if I didn't say something. I know what it's like to have an unplanned pregnancy, it's a blessing, but not always at the beginning... :)

  7. Hehe thanks MJ. No, I know that breastfeeding is not accurate birth control; I'm on the pill, too. And even that isn't 100%. :)

  8. :) just making sure--my husband's aunt (who isn't much older than us) was certainly surprised! she made certain to let us ALL know that was a myth, lol.

  9. aaahhhhh poor baby. i hope she feels better too.
    o and by the way mal, i was kinda disappointed too- it would have been fun having you 2 prego at the same time :)


What's on your mind?
