23 Weeks and the flu

I am so over this flu thing. I've been sick since Saturday night with a high fever 103 (not good when preggo), chills, body aches, runny nose, dry cough, and sneezing like CRAZY. I called my OBGYN today and they immediately sent me to the er to have the baby checked. Everything was fine his heart rate was perfect and he was moving around like crazy kicking the monitors :). I was told I have the flu and to continue the Tylenol 4 times a day and LOTS of fluids. The dr. checked everything to make sure I was okay which made me happy. He said I should be better by the end of the week and I have a follow up with my OBGYN next week. Can't wait to see the lil man again :) On a better note both boys are better they only had fevers for 2 days and now just a mild cough.
