May not have been il: A kid can certainly have a brief vomiting episode from an infectious trigger & viruses are most common. However, given toddlers interest in exploring the world & using their taste buds to test their curiosity; this could have been related to ingesting a foreign substance.

It is too early for one to be thinking about pregnancy. A woman can start thinking about pregnancy if her period is missed, about 2 weeks after ovulation, and do a home pregnancy test a few days after that. Patience is a blessing. ...Read more
