Slumber Party…

Slumber Party…

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!

  1. Sounds like you have a great doctor. That’s good to hear… Pretty scary that you had to spend the night in the hospital… What did the boys think about that?

    Hope this clears up for you soon!

    Love you!

  2. I bet that most insurance companies are run by men, because if they were run by women who had been pregnant you would have had way more than just 4 Zofran lol.

    I hope that you feel better soon!

    Oh, Jenn. 🙁 So sorry you are feeling so sick. I am praying for you. God bless.

  4. I hope you feel better and get more medicine soon! My sister is having her baby today! Her water broke this morning and at noon she was 3 cm and getting her epidural. I’m heading up there with the girls after their naps!

  5. Hey Jenn,
    I just caught up on your Jan and Feb posts. I’ve been praying for you – wish I lived a lot closer ’cause I would love to help out with the boys and the cleaning! Thank God for moms. 🙂 Thanks for keeping us updated even when you don’t feel well. It’s so exciting to watch baby J grow through your blog, and your love for your kids is obvious in every post. You’re an amazing mom. *hugs* – Jess
