Stomach Flu At 36 Weeks No Fun

Tink - October 8

so sunday at 3am, i wake up with stomach pain. have severe diarehea and vomitting all morning- from 3am-7am basically. just lived in the bathroom. it was terrible. tried to keep down gatorade, nothing would stay down. then the contractions started. i haven't had any noticeable BH at all, but i did yesterday. i guess the violent vomitting i was doing set them off. they were irregular, but man were they painful. it would start in my back and sides and radiate to the front, be a sharp pain for 10-15 seconds and then pass. i just breathed through it. it was awful though to be in the midst of throwing up and have one. by 4pm, i was finally able to keep some fluids down and a few bites of applesauce. i never got a headache though, which is strange, cuz that is usually the dehydration sign. so i haven't slept the last 2 nights basically. the vomitting passed, but the diarehea remains. i think it is just the stomach flu and not the preterm labor type of diarehea or anything like that, since i had vomitting too. i almost went to the ER at one point, i was so bad. but i decided to wait it out. finally ate some mashed potatoes today and can keep down stuff now. i am just so weak. stayed home today. i just wouldn't wish that stomach flu on anyone, much less someone pregnant or so close to delivery. talk about wanting to die!! Will is fine though, since i have felt him moving just as normally as he usually does. i have my weekly appt thursday, so i'll let the doc know then. i am wondering if all those BH dilated me anymore or not. i was 1cm last week. i can't wait to feel normal again. anyone else get really sick towards the end?

i have stomach flu right now and it's making me miserable!! 34 weeks for me. Terrible migraine for the past 2 days and I am keeping plenty hydrated with ginger ale and water but this migraine won't quit! I think I'll head up to the hospital after work tonight just to see what they say. I can't live like this anymore. I totally feel for you!!!!!!!!

Oh Tink the stomach flu is horrible! It's horrible even when you are NOT pg. Stay home and rest. To hell with any deserve to rest up. I couldn't imagine being sick and this freaking pg. I am a wuss as it is.
