Hushbear and I went to see OBDoc on Friday because of all the vomiting. She admitted me to the hospital within about 30 minutes of getting there, so I got to spend all day Friday in the hospital for observation and rehydration.
I was cramping so they did an ultrasound and everything looks great. They were able to see the heartbeat. It was 146 bpm, not sure if that’s good or not, but whatever. They confirmed my due date is 07/09/09; I am currently 7 weeks 4 days pregnant.
I was put on a Zofran pump to curb the nausea and the HG diagnosis was confirmed. The Zofran pump is a wonderful little contraption that makes my life more liveable. There are a few problems with the pump though. I have to move the tubes, not like move out of the way, I have to physically reinsert them on my body. Ouch. It uses a really long needle and is just not very much fun. Also, I still have nausea and even threw up today. I’ve had a constant headache since I started using the pump and my heartburn is terrible. Now every time I eat (even foods on the bland list) I get heartburn.
Saturday the home nurse came over and made me put my IV back in. It really sucks walking around the house dragging an IV pole around.
It looks like I might miss another wedding. My friend J & his fiancée B are getting married in Vegas this weekend. I really can’t see myself getting on a plane.
