Fucking HELL. (otherwise known as: I’ve ripped every muscle in my chest and stomach from vomiting.)

by

I’m such a big, terrible, ungrateful baby.

Yesterday I was sat on a wall for 2.5 hours. I went to meet a colleague so we could do the pick up run for the Thursday night kids group. By the time he arrived, I knew I couldn’t do it. He took one look at me and said, ‘You look like shit. You should go home.’ I said I needed to sit on the wall and just catch my breath.

So.

Two and a half hours, as it is getting dark, as occasional rain is spattering. I was just sobbing and throwing up. Probably about 8 or 9 times. Green said she was going to come get me, and I said there was no way for me to get into a taxi. TMD eventually came to pick me up – and I was feeling more human. Called my doctor crying, asking for help. She said, ‘Whenever you feel sick, just think: I’m pregnant! How wonderful!’ I could have punched her well-meaning face in.

She also said that morning sickness is a sign of a healthy pregnancy.

But, dude. I woke up in the middle of the night dizzy and sick again. Dry heaved and cried some more. Threw up stomach acid.

I am wearing acupressure bands. I am sipping this godawful homemade ginger root substance.

I had ‘lunch’ of four tortilla chips. An hour later, I was throwing down the phone (talking to my mom, if you can call incoherent sobbing ‘talking’) – and throwing up the chips. I also pissed myself while vomiting. My pee is now very, very dark.

I know I am dehydrated. Going to try this ‘take a very very small sip every twenty minutes’ thing my mom is advocating.

I can’t handle this. For reals.

    Aww sweetie, I’m so sorry to hear you’re going through this. I can’t believe that your doctor just ignored you. Here in the US we have a drug called Zofran which is prescribed in severe morning sickness cases like yours. It’s ungodly expensive, but maybe you could look into that? It’s not healthy for you or the baby(ies) to be dehydrated and if this keeps up, you’ll find yourself in the emergency room with an IV. I really hope that you can find some way to make it through this. I’m thinking of you.

    Holy shit, that is just not healthy… there has got to be something a doctor can give you, or some natural remedy that alternative medicine can recommend. Please keep trying to stay hydrated, and maybe recruit TMD to start contacting doulas/midwives/homeopaths etc for alternative measures to help you out. You shouldn’t have to suffer like this.

    You poor thing. It is one thing to want a baby really badly. It is a completely different thing to want to stop vomiting really badly. I hope someone finds you a solution very quickly xx

    Yikes… that can’t be good at all. I wonder if you’re getting these mega bad symptoms because you might be having twins?? I hope someone can prescribe you something…because you can’t continue going on feeling this way >.<

    Just re-reading my comment… the only reason I recommend looking at non-medicine options first is because I’m so paranoid about taking medicine while pregnant :] You probably know better than me though! *hugs* Looking forward to a positive update…
