OH, and Mika is all better

The dr thinks that the virus' were all mutations of the same thing. The flu thing turned into the resperatory thing which tried to become a sinus infection, that went into an incubation period for 2 days, which then started draining and became a really bad sore/hoarse throat. *sigh* We've finally recovered, though. Now we're back to working on eating solids! Not Mika's favorite thing...

I felt Munchkin today!!

I am now 11weeks5day pregnant. I've been a little bit worried the past few days because I have not started to get a belly yet, and they say with #2 you start showing earlier. Well, due to an almost 10lb loss thanks to morning sickness, my regular jeans are kinda loose right now! (And yes, I know morning sickness is a VERY good sign everything is ok, lol!)

Anyways, I was laying in bed trying to get some more sleep this morning. (Zarik got Mika up since today was my only day in almost 2 weeks I've had to sleep in) I was on my back and was kinda pushing on my tummy hoping everything was ok in there. Well, all of a sudden, I had a little lump on the right side! I remember this happening with Mika, so I knew it was baby!! Then there was a little "pop" feeling, too!! The lump went away for a few seconds, then came back! WHOOHOO!!! I am really excited, and feel a lot better that everything is ok.

Mika has another virus

That's about all there is to say. That's 3 in 3 weeks. I miss my friends.

A long two weeks

Well, the sickies still have not left our house. With the lack of sleep and Mika being so sick, either Zarik or I was bound to get sick, and Zarik was the unlucky one. (Or was I, since I now got to take care of two sickies, lol?) Mika has gone through the flu-like virus, a resperatory virus, and now has a sore throat and is hoarse as all get out, poor baby. Zarik caught her resperatory virus and it went straight to his lungs, so he's been coughing a lot. And I woke up yesterday coughing and today have a mild sore throat. *Sigh* Hopefully we're at the end of it all though. The really sucky thing was we had to go to a funeral in California int he middle of all this. My cousin Shawn, who was 46 years old, had an aortic anyerism and passed away suddenly. So what should have been a joyous celebration of long life (we were supposed to have my grandmother's 90th birthday party) turned into a funeral. The trip went well, despite the nature of it, and we did get to enjoy fellowship with family. And we had a really yummy strawberry-filled cake for grandma at the reception.

Now we are just taking it easy and trying to recover from all this. Lots of prayers that everyone else out there is staying healthy!
