Intestinal Fortitude

My tummy hurts.

I sound like my 4 year old, but it’s true. My stomach is not feeling good. In fact, it’s been doing topsy turvys for a week now. I thought it could be related to my current state, but as the days go by I am thinking it’s a stomach bug. Everytime I eat something, my stomach starts to gurgle and I make a quick stage left exit to the ladies room.

This is not suprising… hubby has noted that a few of his co-workers have had an intestinal virus of some sort, so no doubt I either picked it up through him, or, more likely, my son’s daycare. David rarely gets sick, but he’s become a master at being the “carrier” for all sorts of illnesses.

The school posts all recent “outbreaks” on the parents board at the entrance. Today, we have pink eye (a usual one), and whooping cough.

Is it no wonder that I try to touch NOTHING entering or leaving the building??? You try opening a hinged door with an elbow. I’ve mastered each doorway and stairwell. I also keep disinfectant wipes in my car, and wipe my hands down as I’m leaving. I suppose if there was an option for a Hazmat Shower at the door, I’d use that too.

Ok, question for the masses.

Who here watches “Jon and Kate Plus 8” on TLC? My son loves this show (S. does too…secretly). All I have to say is I can feel my blood pressure rising at the mere thought of having 8 kids under age 6 in one house. The sextuplet thing makes me break out in hives.

I also just realized that the family in the show lives relatively close to me. And I also wonder who her RE was (it had to have been local, right?). And, what meds she was on (it had to have been injectibles/iui, because I can’t imagine an RE would knowingly transfer 6 embryos via IVF. ) Did they ever talk about that on the show?

It just boggles the mind.

Well, back to work.

Two days to go.

  1. I too am a big J&K fan. So is my dh! He says it makes him put our life in perspective and realize it’s not that bad. LOL!I want to say on one of the first episodes they ever ran about them (before they started the series) she said Clomid but I could be wrong. I’m looking forward to hearing good news from you on Friday. Too bad I’ll be out of town and will have to wait until Tuesday to hear. =(

  2. I am SO into Jon&Kate. It clarifies things for me (with only ONE toddler to deal with). Seriously. It makes me feel so much better just watching that chaos. They seem to deal with things so well! How do they do it!?

  3. Oh yes, big J&K+8 watcher here, for obvious reasons. Whenever I want to feel good about my situation, I watch her typical day. lol. She’s a force. I’m pretty sure she did injectibles w/iui with both the twins and the sextuplets. I don’t think they say specifically, but they say “fertility treatments” and most all high order multiples. Of course, not sure what the drugs were…Sorry about the tummy bug. Is it Friday yet? 😉
