me, nurses, and an iv with 3 liters of fluid.
on monday, i called my dr, to try to get the med i needed. instead of getting it, he wanted to see me first. he was concerned that i’d been vomiting too much. so mom, the boys and i went to the dr’s office at 5pm. i was being seen before mom even brought the boys in. i don’t know how she does it sometimes…they have both been sick with nasty colds and weren’t on their best behavior.
i had lost 7 lbs since my last appointment. i had protein in my urine. the dr was not pleased. he said i would be going to the hospital to be put on fluids and given a zofran. (i assumed i would be leaving, but i found out later from the nurses that he’d written an overnight stay.) i just want to say how happy i am with the new dr and staff, the new hospital and staff. i was wheeled down to the maternity ward by my new dr’s receptionist, bonnie. she is so sweet!! the maternity ward was pretty full, so i was put in a room they don’t really use much. it had pumping supplies and such in it. the hospital staff was very nice and caring. i couldn’t be happier with the treatment i received there.
baby bug’s heartrate was in the 170s. up until now, it’s been in the 140s. i was kinda concerned, mainly since i hadn’t felt her much all day, but the nurse seemed to think she was ok.
i was able to leave at about 930am tuesday morning. dr prescribed more zofran and phenergan too (it seems to help at night, but i can’t take it during the day because it makes me dizzy and tired). i still hadn’t received another zofran, so was feeling a bit bad again. we dropped the scripts off at the pharmacy. after many call backs, we finally found out that i could get FOUR zofrans. sigh. the insurance company is still being quite difficult.
yesterday i spent most of the day in bed. i’d taken a phenergan and it really knocks me out. i’m so thankful for mom!!!!!!!!!!! she watched the boys for me. today i am feeling SOOOOO much better. i have zofran in me, plus i was able to sleep in a little this morning. i really think a.m. sleep is a big factor in how badly i feel sometimes. i am awakened several times a night (lately at least) and then have to get up early…it’s really hard on my poor body. 🙁 i wish mom could just live here. LOL.
please continue to pray! everyone is hoping that i will be over this soon. no one hopes this more than i do, but i am not truly hopeful. i remember how long it lasted with the boys, and even tho it wasn’t as bad with them, it still seemed never-ending!
