First of all, my husband does not get ANY sick time. He only gets 2 weeks of vacation time, most of which he saves for "sick time" so he can have a day off when he is ill. So when I am sick, he can't take the day off unless I am pretty much dying.
I am nearing the end of a very difficult and delicate pregnancy. I am 7 mos. along, and have had a very hard time. We have a 1 year old who is teething ( and you know what that means....)
We have told everyone in our families that we can't be around sick people for these reasons.
A month ago, my sister invited us over without telling us that her kids were very sick with a horrible cold. We saw they were sick and were only there long enough for me to use the bathroom, and we left. I caught the dang bug anyway, even though I washed my hands like a fiend. The cold settled in my chest and I ended up with a very bad cough. After one coughing fit, I realized I was bleeding. I called my hubby at work and he came home and took me to the hospital. The doctor said that my cough was bad enough in my type of pregnancy to break my membranes and cause early labor. They took care of me and sent us home. A week later, my 1 year old was very sick and up all night for a few days. A hard pregnancy is bad enough without your baby not being able to breathe or sleep....And no one to help, since my husband has to work. For the whole week, both my baby and I were very sick, and just finally got over it this week.
My sister-in-law posted on my facebook that she was looking forward to going to our baby's birthday party this weekend (postponed due to our illness), even though she posted two minutes before that her kids were throwing up today.
Why don't they get it?!! We've said it a hundred times and everyone knows about our scary day in the hospital where we thought we were going to end up having a baby two months early!!! What do you say/do?!?
