When I started the Pokes and Prodding page here on our blog I never dreamed in a million years that the pokes would be this intense. If I had to guess I would imagine that to date I have had a hundred needles stuck in me.
We went back to the hospital last night because I couldn’t keep a single thing down and had thrown up about 9 times. I was really weak and dehydrated. They sent me to Labor and Delivery where I got 2 liters of fluids and they tried every medication known to man for nausea and nothing worked. I couldn’t even keep ice or jello down. This bean is one picky eater! The last drug they wanted to try I had not heard of and asked for a print-out. The drug had not been categorized by the FDA and had some very disturbing effects to the baby so we passed.
I feel better after the IV fluids but still a bit nauseous. I am trying not to take the strong medication and sticking with what has worked: Unisom + B6 and lying down. Rob’s pancakes he makes every weekend seem to stay down and thats good because they are make with love 🙂
I am over 10 weeks now and on the last leg toward the end of the 1st trimester. Surely this will go away soon!!!
