Let's back up a little bit...Wednesday was 6 weeks preggo for me and that is the day morning sickness started where I couldn't hardly eat or drink anything. I might have had some soup and crackers, but for the most part it was all water. Saturday I knew I wasn't hydrated...the inside of my mouth was dry and I couldn't keep it wet at all. I called my doctor around 1:30 telling him how long it had been since I'd really eaten and he wanted me to go to the hospital to get an I.V. of fluids. Mike was unfortunately working the MU football game so thankfully Lynne came over to watch Evan. I headed to the hospital and got hooked up with an IV and after the first bag of fluids, I threw up....after the second bag of fluids, I threw up. :( They put some electrolytes in the third bag (I think) and had it running at a much slower pace. I managed to eat 1/4 of a cracker too ;) My doctor said he wanted me to spend the night and that he would check on me Sunday. Lynne was able to feed Evan dinner, give him a bath and put him to bed. (This was my first night away from E). Mike stopped by the hospital after the game and then headed home. Sunday, Mike and Evan came up and visited and that was the highlight of my day! I still wasn't hardly eating and still throwing up....so after my Dr. came by and visited we decided that I should stay another night with more fluid, 2 more kinds of iv meds to help with the nausea, and going to set up home care with a zofran pump. I got a lot of sleep since I hardly had (and still don't) have much energy. Monday I got an ultrasound on the peanut, and thankfully there was only 1 growing baby! We were nervous since I was on Clomid. I finally ate a couple of popsicles and some broth and they decided to send me home Monday night around 5:30 pm. I am so thankful to be home, unfortunately I am still sick and our lovely insurance won't pay for the pump so they are trying to figure out a way for me to get it without paying out of network. Mike stayed home again today and went in to work for a few hours while E was napping. Tomorrow Lynne is coming over to help since I am so weak and can't do much (especially make Evan's meals...that just completely makes me sick). I also have a doctor's appointment, so hopefully we'll hear some good news. Someone tell me morning sickness is all worth it...I'm hoping by 12-13 weeks it stops!
