When I woke up this morning I had every intention of going to my parents and getting some stuff done. The day did not go the way I planned at all. You may have remembered in my post yesterday my mention of passing out last night. I promised my husband I would call the doctor this morning and let them know. Well, I got a huge lecture and was told to come in for an evaluation.
My husband took the day off from work (sweet guy, I know) and took me in. Thankfully I was able to go to Ob intake rather than the ER because we reached the 14 week mark. At Ob intake they took my vitals, got some history and started an iv to rehydrate me. The theory was I passed out because of severe dehydration due to days of vomiting. About 3/4 of the way through the first bag I started vomiting. It was mostly the crackers and water the nurse brought. I went to the bathroom where I had to pull the emergency cord for the first time ever. I could not stop throwing up, and it was to the point that vomit was coming out of my nose. The nurse (who I might add was pregnant as well) was so nice and helped me clean up before getting me back in the bed. The midwife ordered a second iv bag, which was put in. Halfway through the second bag I needed to use the bathroom again. On the way there I almost passed out, falling to the floor but not actually loosing consciousness. I threw up several times through the second bag so Phenergan was administered by iv. I slept for a bit and was sent home with instructions to try to get more fluids in.
Ronny and I have been home since about 4:30. In that time I ate some cheese in a can (I know!) and crackers and feel back to sleep. I feel horrible. The physical reasons are quite apparent, the emotional aspect of this whole thing is quite difficult to put into words. I feel like a burden on everyone. I am physically unable to properly take care of myself, and really struggle with putting that burden onto others. It’s hard to ask for help when you should be able to do it on your own.
I pray that the nausea and vomiting come to an end.
