horrible horrible stomach bug

i'm sure you ladies are getting tired of reading about my physical ailments this pregnancy. Wink but this weekend, my DS, husband, and i were all struck down with the worst 24-hour virus i've ever experienced. we were all vomiting every 20-30min and couldn't keep down even tiny sips of water. luckily, DH and DS started to improve and could take fluids by mouth after about 8 hours, but when i reached the 12 hour mark still puking uncontrollably, DH decided to take me to an urgent care clinic. which meant driving over an hour through the mountains because we happened to be "vacationing" in a remote area of montana. but it was SO worth the drive! 2 liters of IV fluids, and i felt like a new woman!! and it was also very reassuring to hear the baby's heartbeat on doppler, since that was my main concern when i realized i was getting dehydrated. anyway, we're all recovered today and made it safely back home.

Oh my gosh, that sounds awful. So glad you are feeling better! Did you get to enjoy any of your vacation?

yes, we had 5 very enjoyable days before the puking started. Smile DH took DS fishing and we saw lots of wildlife. DS learned several new words like "moose, elk, waterfall, hike, trout, and fox." it was great!

What a horrible thing to happen on your trip! I'm glad that everything worked out, but how scary! What a fun trip, other than that!

So glad you are feeling better!!!

My DD just got over some kind of nasty stomach issue. It lasted 5 days and I think I might have won a world record for number of loads of laundry done in one week! It was pretty awful seeing your 1 year old getting IV fluids.

oh no. i know what you mean about the laundry, and i was only dealing with DS throwing up for 1 day! i can't imagine 5! and i was such a wimp about having the IV put in...having to watch my 1yo have that done would be torture! i'm so sorry, and i'm hoping everyone is healthy at your house now for awhile!
