This past week has been N-U-T-S.
Last Thursday, Seth and I celebrated our first anniversary. Ideally, we would have went out to dinner, had meaningful conversations- talking about the high points the last year has brought us. We would’ve come home, changed into our comfy clothes, put a non-disney movie on, and enjoyed the night together. Most of those things did happen. Except the part where we enjoyed the night. Around 11:00 I started getting nauseous, and ended up getting sick. No big deal right? I’ve had morning sickness most of this pregnancy anyhow, so it wasn’t anything new. HOWEVER, it did not stop after one throw up session. Instead, we had to go to the ER, (for the second time in a month) so that I could get an IV drip and zofran.
After a few hours of dozing in the ER, they finally decided to admit me to the OB unit, since I wasn’t able to take a drink of water without throwing it instantly back up. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the first time this has happened to me, but it was the first time they had to admit me. The rest of the night/morning was spent sleeping on and off, having monitors on me to check for contractions and Henry’s heartbeat, having ultrasounds done on my gallbladder, and the changing of IV bags. I was finally discharged at 7:00, Friday evening.
Apparently, gallbladder issues are a common thing during pregnancy. I had not been aware of this. I have to go back to a surgeon for more tests after the baby is born. Which is poop. I’ve spent the last 5 days being terrified to eat anything. Which is really unfair, since I’m 26 weeks pregnant and want to eat everything in my sight.
Today I wrestled with nausea for a few hours. It’s becoming more and more stressful, especially since I have zero control over it. It’s extremely frustrating. Luckily, tomorrow I go see my doctor and hopefully she can give me a diet that will help or prescribe me some kind of medication. Until then, I just keep praying for relief.
On a happier note, we got some of the proofs back from Oliver’s 2 year old pictures/family pictures! They’re pretty great, if I do say so myself. Hopefully I can get a few uploaded within the next few days!
Until next time, ❤
