Enough is Enough.

TMI Warning...

So, when should I be concerned and head to the ER? For seven days now I've had awful stomach problems and spend more time in the bathroom than anywhere else. When I called the RE's office on Thursday, one of their brilliant nurses told me to just eat bananas and drink lots of fluids. There was nothing else I could do she said. Ever since I started the progesterone, I've felt like crap. Literally. I feel disgusting. And tonight I thought my head felt hot so I took my temp and I have a low grade temperature. I can't keep anything in me. Food and drink are going right through me. My muscles ache and I could swear the whites of my eyes are a little yellow. I just took some Tylenol for the fever, but ugh I feel awful. I even took some Immodium today, but that even didn't do anything. How am I going to get through the work week? I called my mom (she's a nurse) to see what she thinks I should do. She think I should just keep forcing liquids and get some rest. Or she said I could go to Urgent Care. But I just received a bill for $70 bucks from them from my last visit when I had Bronchitis. So I'm not thrilled about that option. If I were throwing up too, I would definitely head to the ER. But I hate this waiting it out stuff. And I know I need to take the progesterone, for our hopeful baby to be. See little one what your mommy is already doing for you? :) I'm thinking of calling the RE's office again tomorrow. I just want to get some better answers and I want to know if this is normal or a severe side effect. I mean if we do have a baby to be cookin' it can't be good that I'm this dehydrated I would think. Would it be rude to ask for a different nurse, if they give me the same one to talk to tomorrow? I don't really give a crap.

No pun intended.

I'm so sorry you're not doing well. That's awful.
And if I were you, I would call the RE's office again. When I was seeing my RE, they definitley saw my crazy side because I called them so much just for little things.
Hope you feel better soon! And praying for a sticky little baby for you!

I'm sorry that you're sick!! Holy cow that sounds awful. I say call back - and if the nurse doesn't like your questions ask for somebody else!
