7 weeks and already in the hospital!

Well, after 2 weeks of solid all day sickness I have been completely dehydrated I rarely leave the bed. Well, my hubby came home from work and insisted on taking me to the ER...well, my blood pressure was super low and I was unable to walk without support. The doc tried to hook up and IV and was unable my veins were so collapsed. They sent me to the main hospital in a nearby town. At the other hospital 6 pokes and finally they hit a VERY tiny vein and it BURNED so bad for the IV fluid to go in the vein because it was so flat they could only have it drip once every 30 seconds! you could litterally see it travel through the vein! it felt like it was bursting! they also gave me anti nasua meds in the iv that knocked me out and gave me a perscription for that med in a supposetory so I don't throw it up at home. I feel worlds better, still taking it super easy, dh is taking duty of Taiven and errands, but man I hope this passes...I can't imagine this for 9 months I would litterally want to be put out of my missery! I feel so useless....thank god for wireless laptops hehe

Re: 7 weeks and already in the hospital!

I totally sympathsize. I have hyperemesis gravitum with all of my pregnacies. With my youngest I threw up each and every day including while in labor. I am fairly able to keep liquids down enough that I only end up getting fluids a couple times in the pregnancy. Mostly just outpatient as this is kinda expected for me (I've been pregnant 3 times HG with all!) It's brutal, no doubt. The vomitting for me isn't the bad part the complete and utter weakness associated with it is what really gets me.

I hope this passes for you and you don't need a zofran pump and fluids at home because that blows.

Go to www.helpHER.org for tips on how to cope, new medicines that your OB might not be aware of, and general emotional support.

Re: 7 weeks and already in the hospital!

All I can do is offer I went through the same thing with my first pregnancy. Luckily I was over weight (gee, I NEVER thought I would say that!) and even though I lost 20 lbs being pg, I was not in serious danger as long as I would get the IV fluids when needed.

Bad news is that it lasted STRONG for the first 3 months, then "normal" throwing up a few times a day for another 2 months. DD ended up being born at 31weeks, BUT was still a healthy weight for that early (4lbs)

GOOD NEWS is that I am on my 3rd pregnancy since then and NONE of them have been anywhere near as bad as the first. I seriously thought that I was going to die, so I know where you are. So far, I have been sicker when I am having girls.

I really will keep you in my prayers.

Sherrie
