Happy Tuesday!

So last night I was in Labor & Delivery for 4 hours. For the past week my nausea has come back, and I've been back to throwing up again. I had it really bad from weeks 5-13ish and lost 20-25 pounds at that point. But until last week I had been doing much better and putting weight back on. ( Btw- i am 33.5 weeks) Well yesterday I emailed my doctor that the nausea/vomiting had come back and would it be okay to start my Zofran again. She responded with "Please go to Labor & Delivery to be evaluated." I was like "WHAT?!" I didn't feel like I needed to take THAT drastic of a step, but did as I was told like a good little mommy, lol. They hooked me up to a monitor and saw that I was having contractions every 5 to 10 minutes. (But cervix was still closed). Wyatt's sweet little heartbeat would jump like 10 beats per minute with the contractions. So doctor decided I was just dehydrated and hooked me up for 2 bags of IV fluid. After a few hours of fluid, urine tests, and blood tests- the contractions slowed to about every 15 minutes. I was sent home to rest, re-start my Zofran and DRINK DRINK DRINK. I've only had a few contractions today so that's great and I'm trying to really keep up on my fluids.

So this is just a warning to make sure everyone is really keeping up on water or else you will head into early labor! Scary!

Jeez, glad you went and got those fluids. Hope the vomiting ends and that you start feeling like yourself again.

Yeah it's especially important to drink water when you're vomiting a bunch. So sorry to hear that, sounds like the most stressful thing ever to me =/

Sorry you're feeling bad and going through that, but glad you got the fluids and slowed the contractions. Hope it gets better and keep drinking!
