Sick is lousy.

Sick plus sleep deprivation sucks.

Sick plus sleep deprivation plus a newborn really sucks.

Sick plus sleep deprivation plus trying really hard not to get the newborn sick and still breastfeeding really really sucks.

I feel like a terrible mother – she’s finally beginning to smile, and all I want is for her to sleep.

Mr. Hope stayed home Tuesday. I managed by myself Wednesday. Wednesday night and Thursday morning were rough for BabyHope, so that means rough for me. Mr. Hope’s mom is on her way from the Dallas area to help – hopefully by mid-afternoon.

  1. The only good part is that the breastfeeding will help her NOT get sick. I know when my guys were about 5 months old I had the WORST stomach virus I ever had and everyone who came in 5 feet of me got it too, except the boys. I hope you feel better soon.

  2. i hope you feel better soon! i absolutely hate being sick- and i can’t imagine having a newborn on top of it!

    lots of rest, fluids and tons of smiles from babyhope and i’m sure you’ll feel better in no time! :0)

  3. Ughhhh I am so sorry….wish I could help. Take care of yourself.

  4. oh I really hope you get better, it’s a good thing you have help on it’s way from Dallas.

  5. Feel better soon.

  6. 😦 I can’t imagine being sick right now. I can’t fathom being sick AND breast feeding. Poor Mrs. Hope. Get well soon.

  7. Oh man, you brought back memories of having the flu and having to stop nursing to vomit, cleaning up and then breastfeeding again. My husband caught the bug too and my sister totally saved my ass by looking after the baby for a day.

    Feel better soon!

  8. Sorry you are feeling bad. It’s really rough with a newborn. Reminds me of when my parents had to come rescue me when my son was a few weeks old, and DH went out of town and I had terrible mastitis, with such a high fever I could not function. Hoping you feel better soon!

    (BTW, I haven’t been able to leave comments using Name/URL recently … not sure why?)

  9. I hope by now you are feeling much better, and got at least a little bit of rest. 🙂 I know this is late in coming, but let me know if you need anything.
