Guess who caught Jack's vomit virus?

Yup.... Me. Wonderful.

Just what every pregnant woman needs a month from her due date: Sickness, loss of appetite, and the resulting weight loss. I have lost a pound in weight since Saturday... I'm supposed to be gaining that sort of amount, not loosing it.

I started with it on Monday. Luckily I had a midwife apt for that day anyway and baby is fine. But since then I have hardly eaten and what I have has largely come back up. I'm tried all the time. I've slept for most of the last few days.

Baby is in and out of my pelvis too, mostly because I'm spending so much time ether sat or laid down because I am sick. This is no good. Also, baby is back to back with me - again no good - because I'm in the wrong position myself because I'm sick!

I am now dreading going into early labour (not that it's likely while baby keeps disengaging) but with no food inside me I have no energy so I wouldn't be able to cope.

Luckily Mark has not (so far at least) come down with it, so he's having to manage a very stroppy Jack and a sick me all while still trying to get the house something like ready. No easy task. I think Jack has seen the chink in the armour too as he has become Tantrum Boy 2010 meets The Whingemaster these last few days.

I've managed not to be sick so far today. But all I have had is 1/3 of a bowl of cereal for breakfast, and an apple just now for lunch. I'm struggling to keep the apple down at the moment but if I sit still and breath deep I stand a chance.

Oh well. 3 weeks 3 days to go.
