Having irrational fears that baby in belly is "in danger" due to my stupid illness.
Ugh - this is awful! I have been sick since Thursday afternoon with what has finally been called gastroenteritis. Basically I am having the Big D all the time and the occasional vomiting. My wonderful DH took off early on Friday to take me to get IV fluids and care for my 2 year old. He has been a saint and I've not lifted a finger since then - not that I've been able to. I really am in a bad way - this suuuux! Am finally able to keep some fluids down somewhat today and had 1/4c applesauce this afternoon. Of course I just was in the bathroom vomiting and having D, but anyway.
On Friday the Dr who administered the IV fluids listened to baby and heartbeat sounded great. I happen to have an ultrasound scheduled tomorrow morning to see where my placenta is, so I am sure I'll get reassurance from the tech at that point, but in the meantime, looking for reassurance from BTDT mommas to tell me baby is not being adversely effected/afftected (?) by all my gutteral distress. Have been too sick to do kick counts, but did notice lots of movement today.
It is late, I'm sick and tired - just need some reassurance.
