Can I just tell you how hard it is to be sick, preggo and a SAHM? Yeah, it's a handful. I've found that sometimes I simply can't get sick. I might feel awful, but I can't afford to act it because I have to care for Adia.

It's exhausting certainly and toddlers definitely don't understand. I think it's probably one of the hardest aspects of being a SAHM.

And right about now (only days from baby #2) I can only imagine what it will be like with two kids at home...oy vey!

Hope you feel better soon!


Hope you feel better soon. Being sick with a toddler sounds very challenging.


Sandie - so sorry you are feeling sick. I hope you get better soon!

I think the main difference between sick/SAHM and sick/WOHM is that you have to get back to work, so it's imperative that you get well as fast as you can (so you have to send the babes to day care). I can sort of let a cold drag out for days, and just have A watch TV while I rest. Neither situation is good, but I guess we get by.


I do feel better, although I am still congested. Now the Schmoop is congest and coughing :-( I agree, Linda. I stayed home Wednesday (but also worked from home for about three hours), went to work Thursday and felt miserable, so stayed home Friday (worked for about three hours again). I'm praying I don't get sick again for several months.

Keely -- You are SO close to being a mama of two. I'm praying for little R to come soon ;-)
