The Throes of Hell

Last night, while I was making dinner, Sean ran into town to get a few things. While he was gone, Alice started coughing and threw up on the floor. I didn't think much of it, as she may have stuck a finger down her throat (which is usually why she vomits).

Sean got home and said he didn't feel well, and went straight to bed. Alice and I ate dinner. Well, I did. She had a few bites here and there. I gave her a bath and got her to bed.

A few hours later, Sean started vomiting. He was so loud, he woke Alice up. So I got both of them settled back down. Same thing an hour or so later. About 3 am, I finally was to get to sleep. A little over an hour later, Alice threw up all over the bed. I got everyone up, cleaned up, changed sheets, and back in bed.

A little bit later, she woke up and threw up again. So I took her in the bathroom. She threw up a few more times. I got her cleaned up, new jammies, new sheets on the bed, and everyone back in bed. This time we put towels down in case she threw up again. I threw the sheets, jammies, and stuffed animals in the laundry.

I finally got to sleep after 6. Luckily, I was able to sleep a few hours. I still haven't gotten sick, but I keep feeling waves of queasiness. My dad, who came over Sunday for dinner, got really sick yesterday too.

So I know I'm not out of the woods yet, but I'm hoping and praying I don't get this. I can't imagine being this pregnant and that violently ill!

Oh my gosh, that sounds completely awful!!! Hopefully Sean and Alice are back to normal after resting all day? And fingers crossed you don't get even a touch of it!!
