Today was a really bad day. I could not keep ANYTHING down and threw up 9 times today. So, Dr. Vo admitted me into the hospital for IV fluids and meds. At this point I have lost 12 lbs in 8 weeks and currently weigh 90 lbs. I really do not look like a pregnant person. I look more like an anorexic person. I was not looking forward to going to the hospital or the 45 minute drive to get there, but I really need to get feeling better. Sadly, today was the day Bryan and I were supposed to be flying to Michigan to join his family for a week long vacation.
When we checked in and I got to my room, it took the nurses 4 tries and almost 2 hours to get an IV into me. I was so dehydrated. Finally we were successful and once the fluids started, I could tell I was feeling better. I ended up staying there for 2 nights and received almost 8 bags of fluids. When I was released on Saturday I felt like a new person.
Summerlin Hospital has an entire floor just for pregnancy, so everyone on the floor was either pregnant or had just delivered. One of the nurses took Bryan and I on a tour of the ward and the NICU. Seeing all those tiny babies and knowing there are 2 growing in my belly gave me such great joy!
