The morning sickness may have passed, but now it seems like my immune system has gone walkabout.
Last month I had the Killer Flu. That lasted about one and a half weeks.
While in Melbourne, I developed an irritating cough. I'm not sure if it was viral or because of the cold wind, pollution or the fact that there were people smoking EVERYWHERE. (Our pastor suggested I may be allergic to Victorians haha).
Then, in the early hours of yesterday morning, I got gastro. I was vomiting every few hours until early yesterday afternoon. Now I'm in the 'recovery stage' of trying to eat something again. I really hope I'm better by tomorrow as I have my 20 week scan and obstetrician appointment which I really don't want to cancel.
Baby, I love you, but I want my immune system back. I'm a bit scared of what I may catch next. Chicken pox? (I've never had it). Shingles? Some other ghastly thing?
Maybe I'll just stay inside and be a recluse for the next four and a half months.
I'm very glad this baby is still in utero. I don't think I could cope looking after anyone else at the moment.
