    Default Yuck. Cruddy appointment.

    When your doctor asks you if you are ready to consider putting in a line for fluids, calories and meds, you suddenly realize you are really sick. I know I haven't felt good but I've been pushing through. Making myself coach my basketball team and teach at church and drive my kids to all their activities and try to do housework. I have tried to tell myself I'm just pregnant, suck it up. I think today is the first time I've had to admit I'm beyond "suck it up". Sigh. Bordering on dehydration and calories are getting to be a concern.

    I sobbed all the way home. I'm supposed to travel next week and I'm so run down, I just don't want to. I'm scared if I'm sick enough on the way there, I won't want to drive back. I just don't know what to do.

    I'm so sorry... Maybe you could go ahead and get the line for some fluids and calories for a couple days before your trip. That could really make a difference in how you feel! I'm sorry you are so sick.

    I agree, take the doctor up on the offer! I bet you'll feel like a new woman!

    Chin up. I so hear you on feeling like your body has let you down. Not much longer now and our babies will be out exploring and we'll be back to 'normal'.

    ((hugs)) I'm sorry you have it so rough...it's just not fair! I get fairly sick for the first half and still have some lingering nausea that comes and goes. But nothing like you've dealt with; just enough to know that it is miserable and I don't do well with pushing through it. I really don't function when I'm dealing with it. So sounds to me like you have done a great job.

    I agree with the other ladies, let the doc give you the fluids and nutrients you need. It might get you some much needed strength to "fight another day". I hope you can get to feeling better and at the very least it's just 3 or so more months. Then you'll get a lovely bundle of joy as your prize at the end.

    I agree with pp's. I think the fluids and calories could give you that boost you need to start feeling better.

    Doc told me twice that I'm bordering on being sent to L&D for fluids because I was so dehydrated. I don't drink a lot normally, so I didn't know I was dehydrated! But she got kind of cross the second time she told me.. so I'm doing better now. But I agree with everyone else, go ahead and get the fluids! My doc said it'd take about 2 hours...and that might make a WORLD of difference for you!

    When I had the stomach flu a while back I went to the hospital for fluids since I knew I wouldn't be able to recover them quickly enough on my own. DH then started telling me I should get them weekly or more since it made such a difference! TAKE THE FLUIDS!
