Last night I got an email from Gabby that immediately set me worrying.
Unfortunately I have been down and under with the WORST lower GI bug I think I've ever had ... bad timing! I have horrible gas pains and had to take a half day today and go home early yesterday. (MFM)'s office said pepto is ok so I've been taking that but to no avail. With all the cramping I double checked the heartbeat tonight and it was good and normal. Now I just need this thing to leave me because I feel like I'm dying! If I have a rough night tonight I might ask to go into see (MFM) tomorrow or my primary care to make sure I'm not missing anything and that I'm well hydrated. I'm able to drink and I'm pretty sure I'm drinking more than I'm losing so I think I'm good. Have had headaches so taking Tylenol with good relief. Oh, absolutely no spotting or bleeding so that's good!
Of course that immediately started my heart pounding. Yes, no bleeding is very good. I'm still very worried. She was totally fine Monday! Someone talk me down off my ledge. I texted her husband later last night to see how she was doing and he said she was persevering. She's resting as much as she can.
From the hubby's text:
And staying hydrated and eating when she can ... for the babies of course - can't let the little guys/girls go hungry!
I feel a little bad because it's all about the babies, but I feel bad for Gabby too! But yes, I admit I'm very worried about them. I wish I could do something for Gabby. If I lived closer I'd totally drop off a "hydration care package" but I don't and by the time I mail something she'll (hopefully) be over it.
I just texted her again this morning because I haven't heard from her. I really wish she would go into the MFM so I wouldn't worry so much.
I, I, I, me, me, me, my babies. It's all about me these days, isn't it? Ugh.
