Well I have officially had the dreaded "Swine Flu"

Discussion in 'Pregnancy - Third Trimester' started by anothersquish, Dec 18, 2009.

  1. Yeap, thats why its been quiet this last week :haha: Id been in hospital the week before for some tests on my heart as Dr had heard something he didnt like, Id been ill for almost two full weeks and although Dr who came round did say it looked/sounded like swine flu he wasnt sure as my OH was fine and my son had been ill but only for about 3/4 days and not ill enough to stay off school.
    Typically I stayed in my house hoping Id be better but ended up with severe chest pains and being unable to breathe last Saturday in the middle of the night. I got a blue flashy ambulance ride and everything :blush:
    Not been a very pleasant week, struggled to breathe, not helped by baby in the ribs constantly, horrendous headaches, fever...you name it. Still not very well but I was well enough to start feeling like I was going nuts in the hospital with NOTHING to do but stare at the ceiling so yesterday I asked to come home and today they let me under the proviso Im very good and get plenty of :sleep:
    I also cant quite get my head around the fact we have hit 36 weeks today....one more week til we can have our homebirth! Though Im hoping he hangs out in there longer as I still feel pretty rough and very drained, not sure Im strong enough for a long labour just yet!!

    Hope everyone here is well, congrats to anyone who has given birth since the weekend, sorry I missed it!

    Sounds horrid, glad you're feeling better, make sure you get loads of rest and take care.
     
  12. Thanks everyone, Im sure every hour Im home I feel MUCH better...I hate hospitals. I spent my evening laughing at/instructing OH how to put the christmas tree up....leaving a bloke to put up a 7ft high 5ft diameter artificial tree has to be the funniest thing I have ever seen. Only took him about 3 or 4 hours.....without the decorating!!!
