dear megean and kristina, so sad to hear of your losses, be sure to take care of yourselves and take time for you
Well, i thought i';d give a quick update. Last monday, i started with lots of nausea, but i had 'windows' in the day when i felt better, so i woul d eat then, it wasn't great, but i thought i could get through it, then on friday, the vommting started, only a few times on friday, but by saturday, i couldn't even keep down water. i was getting worse and worse, and trying everything i read to try to help. monday I headed to the health centre, where they put me on diclectin (a medication for women who are pregnant w/ extreme nausea) i trust the nurse who talked to me and she let me know that being so dehydrated and getting up every hour of the night to have a sip of water was more of a risk to me and my baby....... so i go home, take one, vomit one more time, then sleep......after a few hours a was able to eat!!! and drink!!!! i felt much better. I continued eating small meals and yesterday decided i was well enough to walk to the store (big mistake).. ... We live in a VERY small town in the arctic of canada, where news gets exaggerated and spreads quickly --- so i'm in the line to the checkout and i start feeling light headed, then, to shorten this long story, i pass out, twice! the manager drove me to the health centre, where the story was already that a lady seizured in the store (ahhh, wrong info
) well, they watched my blood pressure, i passed out again, and then they filled me with fluids and said it was just the weekend catching up with me and to eat lots, drink lots, and take it easy! this certainly hasn't been the blissful pregnancy i imagined! oh well, i guess its a lesson on flexibility....... this has got to rank up there with one of the most embarrasing moments of my life
wishing you all health and energy!
