House of ill repute

It was a very rough weekend for us. Little Elvis came down with a pretty rough stomach bug on Thursday afternoon. He got so bad, so quickly that we had to take him to the local MedServe.

Poor little guy was pale as his mommy (never a good thing) and couldn't even stand up. But he was a lot better by Friday and right as rain by Saturday.

That couldn't be said of the rest of us. Bob and my father came down with it late Friday night. My mom and I got sick on Saturday.

Bob's was the shortest lived -- only late Friday night, early Saturday morning. This was a very good thing, since Little Elvis had double the energy to spend after being sick for a day and a half.

We are all better now, for the most part. My energy was completely depleted on Saturday and it's still really low. I have a feeling it has more to do with being 9 months pregnant than any stomach bug hangover.

Baby Plum is just fine, and is in the go position. I've actually dilated and effaced.

That's a whole lot different from my pregnancy with Little Elvis. I had contractions for about 18 hours before anything happened. So far, no real contractions. My stomach just gets a little sore from all of the kicking.

The big arrival is just 3 days away. I panicked yesterday because I hadn't gotten Baby Plum a baby book. He now has one now.

In other news, Little Elvis has taken to kissing and singing to Baby Plum. He was headbutting my stomach for a while, so I think that's a good sign.
