My journey dealing with secondary infertility in this crazy fertile world.

And the story continues...

Ugh! I can't wait till I have a nice normal week w/ no issues. It has to be coming soon. I am due.
Long story short....my toddler son has come down w/ fifths disease. It is a very common childhood illness that consists of a fever and a rash. Only problem....it is really bad for pregnant women to be exposed to it. It can apparently cause miscarriage or birth defects. Lovely. More to worry about. So off I went today for bloodwork to see if I have the antibodies in my system. I will keep you updated....

I hope the test results come back saying you had fifth disease a long, long time ago. Then you can rest easy. Many hugs to you!

Oh no...I hate that little Cooper is sick! Keep us posted! How frustrating to know that you "shouldn't" be the one taking care of him, huh?
