Home care

Yesterday was another day of not being able to keep anything down.

Last week my doctor said if this happened again that I should come in. So Stephen came home at lunch and we went there. My doctor was actually out for the day so I had to see the next available doctor.

The first thing he tried to do was find the heartbeat with one of those little doppler machines. He couldn’t find one, but said that wasn’t necessarily cause for concern especially considering that I may not be as far along as they think I am. Still, I’m freaked out about it.

He said that being sick is a good sign and I shouldn’t worry.

He also decided that my ultrasound to correct the due date ought to be moved up. So this Thursday all my questions will be answered at that ultrasound appointment followed by an appointment with my regular doctor.

To alleviate my nausea and dehydration, he ordered home IV care. So last night a nurse came to our house, got my IV started, and showed Stephen and I how to change out the bags and add medicine and vitamins to the IV.

I don’t know about the nausea just yet. Each hydration bag already contains a dose of Reglan and lasts 24 hours. Every time I try to move too much though I throw up. Even just scooting across the couch to get my laptop so I could write a couple blogs caused it.

I’m just tired of feeling this way all the time.
