After throwing up excessively until I was 15 1/2 weeks pregnant, I thought (or hoped) I would never barf again. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Last night, I started feeling a little queasy around 6. It's not unusual for me to feel crappy in the evenings because I get so tired and uncomfortable. I just thought it was more of the same.
However, at around 10, I felt the urgent need to vomit. This was rather unfortunate since I was on the couch, and the nearest toilet was all the way in our bedroom. At the beginning of my pregnancy, I could sprint to the bathroom to throw up, but I'm not exactly a "quick mover" any more. Therefore, all I could think about as I waddled full speed to the bathroom was that I was going to lose it on the carpet, and we were going to have to get it professionally cleaned before the closing on Monday. Can you tell I'm a little stressed about making sure we unload this condo?
You will all be happy to know that I made it into the bathroom, but then, the next problem was being able to kneel in front of the toilet to be able to actually barf. This is no easy task with a belly as large as mine. I was able to manage, but it was incredibly uncomfortable. As soon as I was in position, I proceeded to throw up violently 4 or 5 times. It was ugly!
I called my ob and was told that something was going around. She thought it was just a little stomach bug and that it would pass, but she told me that if I didn't feel better by early this afternoon, I needed to go to the hospital for iv fluids. I figured that if I landed in the hospital at this point in the pregnancy, they would probably keep me there for good, and I'm not quite ready for that. I'm happy to report, though, that I am much better now. I guess I need to rehydrate and eat a little something for the babies.
