Re: dh has the flu

  • Personally I would avoid him, not only this late in pregnancy but I'd have avoided my husband at any point in pregnancy if he had the flu...there are enough discomforts during pregnancy no need to add the flu to the mix!

    Hopefully it's a fast and quick recovery for your husband and you don't catch it!

     

  • Sleep on the couch and disinfect common surfaces, like the bathroom and kitchen and doorknobs.
  • Avoid him.  Sleep in a different room.  DH had it a week ago and I stayed clear of him.  Kept washing door knobs, light switches,.....  Being pregnant it's not worth the risk

  • Ugh. I was wondering the same thing. DH has been throwing up all night. We aren't sure what he has, but he just finished working 2 shifts in an emerge department. He hasn't eaten much today (so I don't think its food poisoning), so my guess is he has picked something up from the hospital (yikes!). I'm thinking sleeping on the couch may be my best bet tonight. Poor guy, he feels horrible.

  • Wish I could make him sleep on the couch... since I have issues sleeping without not being in my own bed but that seems really mean since he is sick and all
