sickies and AF

We are all sick over here. Pookah caught the daycare crud, had a temp of 103.3.  We rushed him to the dr only to discover that no, he doesn’t have an ear infection.  And yes, it is a cold.  There is really no medicine for him besides the Tylenol and motrin for the fever and saline drops for the stuffy nose.  It should last 5 to 7 days.

Please pay your co-pay.

Yeah.

Poor Pookah has been miserable.  He can barely breathe and suck, so eating has been a misery.  But bless him, he soldiers on. He hasn’t had a fever that high since Friday.  But that may be because he is getting motrin/Tylenol around the clock.  His nose runs constantly, or is stuffed with thick thick mucous. 

And of course, Mommy caught the crud too.

So we are all just Dandy over here.

In other news,

I’ve been wondering about my Aunt Flo.

You remember her? Some of you moms have already had your visit from her.  I, on the other hand, have not.

My baby will be 8 months old tomorrow, and I have not seen Aunt Flo since last February. 

Yeah…..it only started me thinking when a friend of mine who had a 10 month old told me she is unexpectedly pregnant.  By accident.  She hadn’t even noticed that Aunt Flo hadn’t been regular.  She didn’t notice for 11 weeks people. 

That got me to thinking. 

How would I even know if I was pregnant?  AF has been missing in action, I haven’t exactly been tracking cervical mucous and well, I have had sex….despite myself……

But I don’t think so.

But if I’m not pregnant, where is AF?

    i’ve read that it’s not uncommon to not see AF at all while BF. I was so dissapointed when mine came back, lol. WAs hoping i would be one of the lucky few!

    Sending healthy vibes and prayers your way!

    yeh, my AF didn’t show up until Embry was 10 months old. I didn’t stop BFing till she was 18 months…so I’m thinking I didn’t start O’ing again till AF arrived either. I wouldn’t worry. Sorry you two aren’t feeling well, hope you get better soon!

    I agree with the others. Some people don’t get af until after they are done breastfeeding! I, on the other hand, got it when the preshus was about 3 or 4 months old. I’m sure you’re fine. (and by fine, I mean not pregnant)

    no AF here either and our sons are almost the exact same age. i dont expect mine till I’m done BFing, b/c most of my GFs didn’t get theres until they stopped BFing too.
