OK, will only be here a few min. - any suggestions would be REALLY helpful.
Excuse the brevity.
One HUGE "contraction" (or whatever it is, its PAIN) that will NOT stop, I can't stand straight, talk (literally, I CANNOT speak) and I am puking all over.
DH wants me to go in, I think it's pointless. At 20 weeks they can't help me or anything and I could be just fine. But what could be going on?
Going to lay down, but I will be back to check, probably.
Right now I'm not going anywhere, but any suggestions?
I admit I don't handle pain well but this REALLY hurts.

I'm thinking possibly appendicitis? I'll send a prayer your way...
I hope you went in.

Quick update, I'm still here. I don't think I'm going anywhere. I was talking to a friend who suggested food poisioning & I'm inclined to think that's it. Seems right. I don't think it's pregnancy related. It's one HUGE moster cramp that just won't stop & I have been puking my head off. Just water, puking water...and can't seems to stop & I am freezing and shaky. Really sounds like FP to me. I'm taking a "wait & see" approach unless it gets worse...puking for an hour did help, but the pain is pretty overwhelming. I can't stand totally straight. We'll see in a bit.
Thanks for the well wishes. I was asleep & this nealy knocked me off the bed it came so suddenly, that's what scared me.

One thing they could do for you is put you on IV fluids - something to consider if you are puking everything that goes in your stomach. I've seen IV fluids radically improve dh's condition twice in a similar situation. ((hugs))

PS Of course, he wasn't pregnant, but both times he didn't stay but a few hours to get the fluids. First time wasn't even the hospital - just a university clinic, so maybe there is a clinic you could go to?

I think you're right and that sounds gastro-intestinal. It could be a bug rather than FP with those chills though. Try some barley water, and a hot water bottle to your back. Also, put your feet in a bowl of hot water with some chamomile teabags in it, when you're ready: it'll help warm you up.

That does sound like some severe food poisoning. I agree with IV fluids if you can't stop the vomiting. Sending you a PM.

It also reminds me of my gallbladder attacks - I sincerely hope that is NOT what you are having, though!

Heat...that is what always helps me in such situations. Hot bath/shower, heating pad, lots of blankets, warm fluids. I have seen heat (in whatever form works) have an incredible impact on reducing pain and associated s/s. At least enough to be able to figure out 'where' it's coming from, sometimes enough to see fairly rapid resolution afterwards.

good luck!

Maybe your gallbladder. That sounds very similar to a GB attack. (I should know I get them all the time)

All of that puking could seriously aggravate the pain in your belly. I have had food poisoning so bad that my tummy hurt for a week afterward. Vomiting uses so many underused muscles in the abdomen. Rest as much as possible and if your instinct tells you to go in, do so please... also, you might want to suck on pedialyte pops. That helped me too.

I thought appendix immediately as well. It has a lot of the same symptoms.

I got food poising at 38+ weeks with Zoe. I thought that I was in labor for about 5 hours. Constant stomach PAIN, vomiting everything, horid BMs. The stomach pain was not low, like I was opening, it was my belly. I could not feel any pain down lower just a rock hard belly. It was horible but after about 15 hours it all went away....



Hope that you are felling better and you and babe are doing good!

it quite possibly may be gallbladder pain. UGH i wouldnt wish that on the most evil of persons.

i cannot even describe to you the type of pain i had with gallbladder attacks other than "the type of pain that is so intense and so constant, that if someone were to attempt to touch me i would do them bodily harm"



i hope you are feeling better.

also, try homeopathic colocynthis 30C

With appendicitis I don't think she'd be vomiting. At least it wouldn't be related to that, yk? I just had a horrible pain in my right lower abdomen, and surgery was the only thing that fixed that (unfortunately!).

hope all is well.

Mama, I had Food poisoning when i was pg, and now I wish I had gone sooner. They could possibly have tested for the bacteria to trace it.

Some types of food borne illnesses can hurt unborn babies. PLEASE go in if this doesnt subside quickly.
