We have the flu

That or a really bad cold gone wrong. :P Whatever it is, it sucks and I can't wait for all of us to be better. Miss A and I were hit late Friday, her with a fever and me with the chills. Saturday was the worst. Miss A's fever shot up to 102.6 and she was teary-eyed most of the day, curled up next to me or Spouse. I hate when my kids get sick, it just breaks your heart. :( I got a fever that day too, 102.0, along with more chills, aches, a cough, stuffy nose, and general weakness. I didn't have any strength to do anything, short of staying in bed and walking to the bathroom. Needless to say, being sick and pregnant is not a party.

Today, both Miss J and Spouse are sick. Yesterday, Spouse just had a cough and was weak, but thankfully, was well enough to take care of the rest of us because I couldn't do it. Today though, he's down with a fever of 101.5 and has been throwing up. So it's his turn to be in bed most of the day to try and rest. Miss J has been fine until this afternoon and now has a fever of 102. She's curled up on the couch with a blanket, poor thing. Miss A is fine now and I'm feeling a smidgen better, so that's good. I'm hoping by tomorrow we all will be on the mend.

On one hand, it's nice we got sick on the weekend but on the other, we have midterms this next week. Hopefully we're well enough to study soon otherwise we could have an exciting week lol. I did have enough energy to update my blog, so I take that as a good sign. :)
