||My mood while writing this blog:|
a bit poorly!!
I went for a routine antenatal appointment and got told they wanted to take me back in to hospital cos I had plus 4 of ketones in my wee (and cos i have hyperemesis gravidarum they knew it was bad again). I have to admit I have been pretty poorly again, unable to keep fluids down sometimes and im still losing weight but I didnt think it was that bad til they admitted me.
I was really dehydrated and they couldnt get the cannula in my veins cos my veins had shrunk away from the surface. The midwife stuck a cannula in my right hand and it was really painful (more so than it normally is to put a cannula in) and my hand got really swollen, so i winced through the pain and then when she tried to flush it thru the fluid from the syringe wouldnt go anywhere so she had to take the cannula out. When she did it was really kinked (no wonder it hurt) and she said that it had gone through my vein! Anyway it hurt quite a lot and i was shaking so you can imagine how i felt when she said she would put another one in my other hand. Eventually she got it in my left hand and blood gushed all over the bed and she hadnt got a cannula bung/stopper thing so she left me with blood gushing out of my arm!! But anyway eventually the drip was put up. But i never realised how poorly i was until i was laying there on the hospital bed with the drip up, and then it hit me, i felt terrible! I think its just cos i was carrying on as normal while being ill and then when i stopped it all just hit me!
Im still really sick but at least im not so dehydrated. I have to go back to the doctors because the cyclizine, domperidone and metoclopramide arent working that well! My waters have been leaking a bit since 24/25 weeks and they still are but drs arent concerned (maybe cos its slow leaking) but today i had a couple of strong contractions so im on bed rest cos i really dont want this baby here yet its way too early (i mean all my probs would go away if he was out but for his sake i want him to stay in)!
Can't you tell, im not happy!
