Nothing a Little IV Fluids Can't Fix...

Illness struck again. 

Wednesday morning I woke up feeling a rumbling in my belly that just wasn't right.  I texted Aaron at work to see if he felt okay and he did.  So I got Paisley and I ready to head to the clinic, pausing about 20 times to sit on the toilet sure that something terrible was going to happen.  When it didn't, I went on in to work and did payroll for the girls. 

While writing their checks, I had to rush to the restroom where some nasty stuff went down.  From both ends.  Excessively.  I'm sure you get the picture.  I immediately felt weak and faint, but finished my payroll duties and headed home.  I left Paisley with Aaron because I was a little nervous to drive with her even though we only live 5 miles from the clinic.  Plus, I didn't know if I could lift her in and out of the car.

By the time I got home, I knew I should probably let my OB know so I texted her (remember we're actually friends).  She immediately called and told me to head to the clinic for IV fluids.  No point in arguing with this woman and I didn't really feel like I was well enough to put up a fight.  So my mom took me to their clinic for 2 liters of IV fluids and IV zofran.  I had several lovely rounds of vomiting while there, but eventually it stopped and I even ate some crackers.

4 hours later, I was sent home with orders to rest and eat a bland diet.  Last night, I still felt terrible but today I woke up much better.  The stomach cramps have stopped and I am eating okay today.  No more diarrhea or vomiting!!!  Which is great because our crew leaves for Vegas in 36 hours!!!


  1. Whoa!!! I've had that from both ends before and it is NOT fun...and I wasnt even pregnant then! So I feel for ya! Glad you are feeling better :) Have a great trip to vegas! I'm not sure if you got my reply email, but thanks about the room! :) We bought the pink lamp at Home Goods in early Decemeber when we found out it was a girl! I couldn't leave the store without it :)

  2. That stinks! I had the EXACT same thing at about 15 weeks too. Horrible. Glad to hear you are feeling better! Gotta love zofran!

  3. I had that at 8mo pregnant with Corbin - I've never felt such misery!! At least you got it out of the way before Vegas. Poor Moose better be praying he doesn't get it while you're there!
