Well I thought that since the last 3 days were AMAZING... (My papaya enzymes, kombuchas, & acidopholus finally seemed to cure the nausea and vomiting that re-appeared) that I had every reason to continue our UC plans in confidence. Another toilet session at 4am last night just left me feeling discouraged though. We have Medicaid so I went to the ER when this happened for several hours a week ago and my blood and urine tests came back just fine, they said baby's heartbeat was "happy and strong".
Did any of you experience this in the last stretch of pregnancy? Vomiting has always been my least favorite part of life, and 5'2 me got a LOT of it with this first pregnancy. I am so into Laura Shanley's book and everything I read about mind over matter, but when I'm sick like that I get hospital "what if" visions and fears that start to run through me and I got down about it last night.
Birthing at home is so important to me, it's a deep embedded dream in my heart, and we really want this. I booked a doctor appointment for Monday... but I know she'll want to do vaginal exams, strep b test, and all of the things I've missed by discontinuing OB prenatal care these last few weeks. I don't know, I'd just love some feedback from other Freebirth mamas.
