  • depends how sick. when i used to have migraines i was useless no matter what, my hubby always had to stay home because i was either in and out of the bathroom puking or had to lay in bed in complete darkness. but sometimes ill suck it up if its just a cold or something. hope you feel better!!!

  • I do both. I do the few necessary things my home needs to function(tend to kids and do dishes) then I rest inbetween all that.

  • I would love to rest when I am sick, but I have 7 kids there is no resting. The only time I'm gonna be able to rest is on my death bed :-D

  • As someone who is just getting over this crappy crappy flu going around, I have to say this time it took me down almost completely for two days. Thank God my hubby was nice enough to make me Chicken Noodle soup and maintain the house as well as he could!!! Sometimes, you just GOTTA take a break to be sick...even if you are a mom.

  • If it's a sickness that involves an ear infection, bronchitis, fever, vomiting...etc, I rest. If it's just a cold, I'll suck it up and go to work.

  • normally, I suck it up. since I have been pregnant I tend to rest and go figure the cold went away faster... ;)
