Getting there

Hi everyone!!! thanks you all of you for the nice intros. I am finally feeling better. My son came down with the dreaded hand, foot and mouth disease and I got it, too. It was a little scary, especially being pregnant and getting sooo sick but we are all doing well now.

    Thank you. My son,Ethan, is 15 months and I am 18 weeks pregnant with a little girl. Ethan made me wait until 41 weeks +1 day for his arrival. How are you feeling? It will not be long now, that is so exciting.

      Thank you, it is terrible. It is highly contagious and my pedi said there is a lot of it going around our area right now. It starts with a sore throat and then you get a fever. Mine was 102.0 Ethan's got up to 102.4. Blister develop on your throat and it is very painful. After 2 days of fever, blisters break out on your hands, feet, mouth and well really anywhere. My poor baby was covered. After about a week the blisters go away but then the skin starts to peel. I had blisters in my throat and I got about 10 spots on my hands. That was it for me but my poor baby. His skin is still recovering and it looks like his nails are coming off, too. :( it is a terrible disease. He had a play date with a friend that came down with it. My friend felt terrible but my pedi said they can get it anywhere and she had already seen 4 other children that morning with it. Adults usually don't get it. I'm just one of the lucky ones. :)

          I just took Tylenol to keep my fever down and drank a lot of water to stay hydrated.
