Went in hospital yesterday for food poisoning/stomach flu

So Wednesday night I came down with a bad headache, vomitting my brains out, and diareah (tmi :\). I couldnt keep any liquids down all night or into the next day so my husband and I went to the ER and they decided to give me 2 bags of IV fluid, zofran, and immodium. and of course they had a trainee whod never done an IV before do my IV. which made me pass out/black out for a few minutes and the room flooded with nurses and doctors so they monitored baby for a good couple hours and things were very strong with her heart :) i got some oxygen and other monitors on me because my blood pressure dropped so low and had a follow up appt today. dr said it should pass fairly quickly, and the flu symtoms are usually short lived. but he said theres a lot of bugs going around right  nowand and its very contagious! be careful everyone!!

anyway. just an update on my pregnancy....:) and OH MAN are we getting close!!!!!

Sorry to hear that you werent feeling well. I also had an IV inserted Wednesday when I was admitted to the hospital and the nurse was bold enough to say "THis is only my second time". I almost freaked at just the thought of her doing something wrong. Thankfully she hit the vain on the first try but did say she made a mess. Needless to say I was too queezy to look. I hope you are feeling better. I know there's nothing worse than being sick on top of being pregnant. No fun at all!
