C came home with a fever after daycare last night. she crashed until this morning (basiclly was up screaming in pain for a while)

so with her history I took her into the peds clinic. she has the flu. type B. stay home all week... Ummm soooo not cool. I havemy Ob appt tomorrow. I called, said what happens if I miss tomorrow, cuz I can't come again until my u/s at 23 weeks in April. the nurse was like ummm that's bad, its' been 5 weeks since you've been here, we can't go 11 weeks without an appt. plus I wanted the blood draw today for the neuro-tube defects, and that won't show on the u/s so she was like if you miss this week you won't get that, the accuracy window will be missed.

SHOOT! so now I'm trying to see if my mom might be off tomorrow to drive down (2 hours drive mind you) to sit with her. the nurse said if C was up to it it they could get her a mask to wear and just bring her with me tomorrow. if push came to shove.... but I don't know, I don't want o expose pregnant women to the flu....

***UPDATE****
I love my OB office

the nurse passed on the info to my doc, and she called me personally to say I have to take the tamiflu as a precaution, since pregnant women are the highest risk group for complications with the flu. and then she talked to me about my appt that I'll miss. and she's having someone be avail to me on the date and time that will work for me on a day in march to do the blood work and my u/s ...

Yikes - tough call. I wouldn't want to expose anyone to the flu either, but on the other hand, you should go to your appointment too. Will she wear the mask or will you have to be constantly putting it back on her? Gosh that is sure a tough call, I'm not sure what I would do. Any neighbors you could call?

She'll wear it, she's sick often enough she knows the drill. :/

I have a friend who lives just up the street who would be home, but I hate asking someone to expose them selves to the flu B when they don't have to. ya know...

Im sorry shes not feeling well. We have been seeing more and more of the flu pop up here at work.. I stay in hiding!

Tough call. I would say it would be better for her and for ladies at the OB office if you could find someone to sit with her but if your stuck you may just have to mask her up and go.

I hope she feels better soon!

i can say, at least I still have a sense of humor, the nruse was a bit confused for the moment when she asked if my husband could stay with her. "I'm a single mom" at the OB clinic for an OB appt. obviously it happens, but not that often...

So what do you do for work now that your DD has to stay home all week? Do you have to now miss work and stay home as well? can you work from home?

Any word on if your mom can come?

Poor C! I'm sorry she's sick! I'm glad your OB office is willing to work with you!
