Pokes and Prods

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!!!
