So Sick…

by jessicaturner on March 1, 2008

I’m sorry I have been such a terrible blogger. Last weekend was crammed with errands and work. Then on Monday I threw up – oddly, since I hadn’t thrown up in more than a week. We thought it was just pregnancy related and didn’t think much of it. Well Tuesday night I started throwing up a lot and just was having A LOT of gi-related stomach flu symptoms (details not necessary – gross). Literally I was up ALL night. I hoped it was just a 24-hour thing. Well Wednesday I was still sick and we ended up going to the ER Wednesday night. I was very dehydrated so they pumped two bags of fluids in me and sent me home. Thankfully the baby was doing fine – with a strong heartbeat of 160 beats a minute.

I stayed home from work again Thursday, but seemed to be starting to feel better. I was taking Zofran every 10 hours (a really strong nausea medicine they often give cancer patients). Well, Thursday night everything was back. So, yesterday I was home again and my midwife had me continuing with the Zofran and drinking 8 oz of water and 8 oz of Gatorade every hour I was awake. I was also to sleep as much as possible. The worst part was that she said I needed to cancel my trip to see my friend Colleen in Baton Rouge. I cried. I was so looking forward to seeing her and meeting her fiance before their wedding in May!! But, it was for the best.

I don’t think I have been this sick since I was a child. Cold sweats, throwing up, stomach flu, no appetite, headaches- just awful. Matthew took such good care of me – waiting on me hand over foot. I am such a blessed woman. This morning, I seem to have turned a corner, but am still feeling weak. I am hoping to be back to normal by Monday.

The Coming Week

You may remember that I was supposed to be traveling this past week directing a few photo shoots. Well thankfully, those shoots were rescheduled for this coming week and the following week (prior to me getting sick). I love when things work out like that.

Because the trips were rescheduled, we had to move our 20-week ultrasound and now find out what the baby is on Monday at 10:30 am!! YEA! I am so excited!!! I will be sure to post the news. :)

Well, that’s probably enough for now…
