I weighed myself this morning, and I'm down 5 pounds. I'm super worried! I've been throwing up all hours of the day and night, and the gagging, nauseous feeling never goes away. I've missed 3 and half days of work. I called the doctor's office yesterday, and the on-call midwife gave me some over the counter remedies (which aren't working) and told me to go to the ER if I get bad enough. She can't prescribe anything until I'm an established patient, and my first appointment is next week. She didn't even offer to get me in sooner! I don't want to go to the ER because I have really crappy insurance, and it will cost a fortune!
I'm really depressed, and I'm homesick for Saranac Lake. The doctor up there would have seen me IMMEDIATELY for something like this. Thank goodness my mother-in-law is retired now. She came over yesterday to take care of me, and she's coming back today. I can't even be a good mom because I'm so sick.
I really think this baby might be twins, just based on how sick I am. I hope not, because it would be overwhelming.
I really just wish I could feel better...
