Today has been awful. I've only thrown up 3 times (which really isn't a biggie to me, I've had days in other pregnancies which were much worse), but that was with the zofran. And when I haven't been throwing up I've felt like I was just about to.
Add that on top of the diarrhea from hell, and I am so dehydrated. I'm trying, I really am, but my body seems to be determined to reject everything I put in it in one way or another.
100 years ago I would have gotten so dehydrated an malnourished my body would probably have aborted in an effort to keep me alive. Or I would have died before the pregnancy was over and taken the baby with me.
Thank God for zofran!
(((Today I'm feeling ridiculously insane for choosing to do this again. I'm off to look at newborn pics of my sweeties to remember why I am.)))
I'm glad the zofran works for you! I took it for the first time this week and while my nausea disappeared, I got the worst headache I've ever had. I traded one evil for another. I prefer puking over that headache, so no more zofran for me. I'm glad it's helping you though!
Hugs Brittanie! Just promise that if you keep feeling dehydrated & can't keep anything down, you'll call your dr. You might have to be rehydrated. I had awful dehydration the day after I gave birth to Allie & it was God awful. I swear, not many things make you feel more wretched than dry heaving after a c/s! LOL I know a few moms in Allie's PR had to go to the hospital for rehydration during their bouts of MS. I seriously think it's such an underrated condition!

Thanks ladies, I'm feeling a lot better today. No headaches from the zofran, surprisingly. The diarrhea seems to have passed, so I'm already feeling better on the hydration level. Still just really tired, even though my kids and I slept in until 9 this morning!
I'm wondering if I has something else (like a virus or something) on top of the morning sickness.
I'm going to take it easy today, as much as I can.
