miserable morning

December 4, 2012 at 5:57 AM
Last night i went to bed with a slightly upset stomach.. i thought it was from reflux id had all evening... no biggy. Well this morning i bolt out of bed and rush to the bathroom... dh is in there so i text him i need him to hurry. he says okay, i think he thought it was my pregnancy bladder about to explode not everything else.. well i finally.get in the bathroom and turns out i have diahrea and I'm puking. great. I feel like i have a fever so i dig out the thermometer... not to sure its working... my temp won't go above 96.1 and i can't remember where the other one went.. hot and cold flashes worse than my normal pregnancy ones... my stomach is still gurgling and uncomfortable an hour later, i still feel like I'm going to be sick every couple of minutes and the only "puke bucket" we have is in the kids room and i can't go get it because they'll wake up and refuse to go back to sleep so i have to just keep jumping up and running to the bathroom every time i think i might get sick especially when i hiccup/burp/whatever you want to call it and get tbat horrible.taste in my.mouth... we don't have any meds i can take, no ginger ale, or anything... I'm beyond tired since i had less than 5 hours sleep and I'm def not a morning person begin with...

    Probably :( and there's very few otc meds i can take... idk if there's anything for this... the nearest pharmacy for my doc to call anything in is at least 30 minutes. I can't cancel i have to go to it :( it wouldn't be as bad if i wasn't.going to have both the kids with me and there's long stretches between any stores/gas stations... I'm gonna ask dh to grab some.stuff on his way home but that's a good 12 hours away, I'm debating if its worth trying to take the kida myself laterf but its a 20 minute drive without traffic

    Idk where i got it from :( only time I've been.around someone sick (that I'm aware of) was last night after my stomach had already been a little upset, and they're only puking nothing else... I'm afraid to even shower riggt now cause how often I'm running to the bathroom for one issue or the other

    I know this going to sound funny but try drinking a coke! The carbonation helps and so does the sugary syrup! Hope you feel better
