This morning I have a raging migraine and I've been throwing up, mostly dry heaving. My son got up 7 times last night so that didn't help, and he has been fully awake since 5am.

DH has been asleep since midnight. It's 10am now. Should I get him up and ask him to watch the baby so I can take some migraine meds and possibly get a nap? I can't take them and watch the baby because they make me woozy. But, after reading so many posts on SAHMs(which I am currently), I wonder if I'm just supposed to deal with it since I don't work and the baby is my "job".

Hell no you are not supposed to just deal with it.Your man just got 10 hours of sleep.If he has any compassion, he will surely get up and take over the house and baby.

 ask him for his help. He has had enough sleep, as long as it won't make the situation any worse.

If he had only been asleep for 2 hours or something, that would be different.  But, he has had ample sleep, I don't see why he couldn't take the reigns so you can get some rest & feel better?

Your son is his too.  I don't understand women that think that because they are sahms that their spouse/so whatever is free and clear from cleaning up after himself or helping out with the kids or a kid involved mess when they get home!  Why is it that they only have to work 8 to 10 hours (or whatever) and we have to work 24/7?
