We got there right before 9PM and left at 5AM. And the gurney sucks as a bed.<br><br>
I threw up bile while we were waiting for 4 hours. That was nice. And they were very full, so I got to sit on a gurney in the hallway! It wasn't too bad, though. One guy we got friendly with had a room (he had a badly infected finger that needed lancing) and at one point I went to the restroom and happened to see him & his mom on my way back to my hallway. They asked where I was and I told them, "Down the hall, IN the hall!" They were surprised that I didn't get a room and I just joked, "Well, they gave it to a guy w/ a FINGER issue!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Joking w/ ppl got my mind off the sick feeling. (And honestly, if he's getting his finger lanced they definitely need to give him the room.)<br><br>
I got 2 bags of fluids, the first w/ a dose of Zofran (IV) which only slightly curbed the nausea (last time it was 1 bag and a dose of zofran and I was fine!), then the 2nd w/ a dose of reglan which had me wanting to come OUT OF MY SKIN, it was AWFUL. I was freaking out! I woke up dh (poor guy slept sitting in a chair!) and told him, "I gotta go! I gotta get outta here! I can't take this! I gotta go!" He went and got the nurse who had a needle in hand and was very intent on using it. l<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> She put a dose of benadryl in the drip for me to help me sleep, she said, and she added that I was feeling that way because of the reglan. Then I went to the restroom and by the time I came out I was calm. And REALLY drowsy. The doctor was funny, too. At the end of the night she said, "I guess Reglan isn't good for you." Um, I guess not. And now we know what I *can't* have. lol! I kept looking at my tubes and thinking, "How can I get that out?! I gotta get it out. I gotta go!" It was nutty. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bigeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bigeyes"> I felt like this guy.<br><br>
She gave me scripts for phenergan and the hospital can help me get on medicaid (which I did not know before!) so I'll be calling them on Monday to set that up.<br><br>
Anyway, aside from freaking out from the reglan, and the very long wait it wasn't too bad. The staff was VERY nice and informative, which I really appreciated, and we got to meet cool ppl while we waited. lol!<br><br>
And the BEST PART is that I got to hear my baby's heartbeat!!!! For the first time!! We couldn't hear it at 11 wks because of the retroverted uterus. 140 bpm. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Here's hoping! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
I have to find the funny in things otherwise it'll just get me down. Alot of ppl don't realize how I truly feel because I laugh alot and have a caustic sense of humor. I think my boss doesn't realize it, either. Oh well. Their loss.
