We have the FLU!!!

So I brought all 5 kids to the doctor and they have the FLU!! This is the 2nd round the flu this pregnancy,at 4 wks g and now at 28 wks g. The doc said that it isn't the seasonal flu, it's most likely the swine flu. They didn't do the swine flu test because they are not required to right now. So they are all on Tamiflu. I sure hope evreything will be okay and I don't get too sick.

I hope you get well soon too. Look at it this way you and the kids should build immunity to it. Unless it mutates.

Ugh, I'm sorry! I hope it doesn't get too bad for you!

Like Fan said, if it is the swine flu, at least you guys should have immunity to it now!

Re: We have the FLU!!!

same thing is going on here! my daughter was coughing for a few days and then out of no where my middle child spiked a fever of 102 around 8pm Wen night, gave him tylenol and by 9:30 it was 104! So dh took him into the ER to see what was going on and he tested possitive for influenza a and said they believed he had swine flu as well (did test him but said it was something like a week to come back ) so they have him on the tamiflu or what ever you call it also and treating him for swine flu and told the whole family to get tested.
So I took the other two in to be tested yesterday at the peds and they acted like I was stupid because my oldest didn't have a fever yet when I'm trying to tell them what's going on. My daughter didn't have a fever that morning and by 1pm at the ped's she did! I'm like by tonight my son will! so they ran the test (waiting to hear back) and didn't treat them for it though just gave them some stuff for congestion and other things. Dh also came down with it while in the ER with my son and was put on quarters the last two days. So you can imagine how fun my "bedrest" has been and it pretty much hasn't happened since I'm taking care of 3 sick kids and a husband. But tried to as much as possible.

So far I haven't gotten it so far, I'm really crossing my fingers that I don't. Especially being high risk because it could set me in labor.
