On my morning commute I read a terrifying article in the NY Times about all of the major epidemics hitting the US right now (published today: Flue Widespread, Leading a Range of Winter's Ills). As I read, I was super aware of the many, many people around me on the train coughing and sneezing their brains out (and that many were not properly covering their mouths or were touching common surfaces right after couching/sneezing into a hand). Gross! I think I Purelled about every 10 minutes, but this stuff is airborne. I'm really freaking out.
Anyhow, it's flu, stomach flu, and pertussis that are going around (add laryngitis for NY). Please take care of yourselves, as getting any of these while pregnant would just be miserable!
