Ok so I've been sick for well I'm guessing about a week now? I know I was sick a few days before we left..Well I thought it went away after we went on vacation..but it came back while we were gone..and now I'm still sick TMI warning! I've had a lot of diarrhea..and honestly I am trying to keep plenty of fluids down but I keep getting sick and now until the point I can't drink/eat. I have actually had a few times when DH had to help me from the bathroom to our bed because I was just too sick (and he has the stomach bug too!) Well it's the same today..Honestly I don't know what to do anymore! I have a dr's appointment tomorrow morning..but I am wondering if I should call them today..I am really concerned about the weakness I've been getting due to dehydration (or at least I'm assuming thats what is causing it)..even though I am still trying to keep fluids down..

Should I wait till I see her tomorrow or call today before her office closes?

So I'm finally home 7 hrs later..well needless to say I was dehydrated like I thought so they started giving me IV fluids..well not a second after she got my IV in i got horrible chest pains..(really unbearable..worse than heartburn has been) and my head started to hurt..and to top it off I started to throw up..well they gave me medicine right away..And Iris HB was normal and she started moving when the monitors were put on her. I did have contractions when I had the episode..Those went away..and honestly I don't remember much about some of my visit because the medicine they gave me for my chest. It was like a dream. They talked to my dr and she wanted me to stay overnight..but agreed to let me go home if someone else picked me up ( I drove myself to the hospital..) well at first I couldn't find anyone..well DH found a way to get to me and 7 hours later I was able to leave.

My dr repeated numerous times to the nurse that she wanted to see me tomorrow. I already have an appointment so I will see her at 10. Ugh I hope she doesn't try to put me on bedrest. Though the episode I had was scary and I thought I was going to be in real trouble

If you can go into L&D and make sure that you are not having contractions. They would also be about to set you up with and IV.

Good luck i hope you feel better soon.

I had the same thing a couple months ago. I went to L&D and got an IV of fluids and nausea meds and felt much better. I hope everything goes well for you at L&D and that you're feeling better soon!

I'd give them a call. What they say is after 24 hours of not being able to keep fluids in you need to go in and get some, so you don't get too dehydrated. Feel better!!
