My hubby is AMAZING. ♡
I got food poisoning. I can’t be sure, but I think it was from Subway’s (in Columbus, GA, off of Veterans Blvd — the location with the 31909 zip code). I ate a foot-long tuna on Monday, by the next day around 10AM, I had severe abdominal pain. I seriously thought something was wrong because it hurt so bad.
It was sporadic, and because I’m entering my third trimester, I couldn’t be sure if it was my intestines or my uterus that was in such excruciating pain. I figured I’d just let it pass, but then I had diarrhea and vomiting too in the afternoon (and I haven’t thrown up in like a month). The pain was so intense I was worried about the baby, but I waited it out until the next day.
By Wednesday morning I was still feeling the sporadic, severe pain. I couldn’t even take Ava to school because I was so ill. Danny took her to school, and then he drove me to the ER on base. When we went to check in, the receptionist told us to go to Labor and Delivery. We stayed there until a little past 11:15AM.
I can’t believe how incredibly lucky I am to have such a great guy. I definitely don’t deserve him. I am such a spoil brat, and I know it too!
When we came home I fell asleep and he went in the afternoon to pick Ava up from school (an hour round-trip each time). Last night he went out very late at night, because I was on the couch in such agonizing pain, to buy me my favorite drinks and fruits.
The doctor says the baby seems fine, and says my symptoms seem to be either a gastrointestinal infection like food poisoning or the stomach flu. He says there wasn’t really anything he could give me for it, that I just had to let it run its course; plenty of liquids to replace the lost fluids from the diarrhea and vomiting, and bed rest.
Everyone keeps saying I need to gain more weight, but I’ve always been petite to begin with; and that makes me wonder, do they tell overweight women to lose weight like they’re always telling me to gain more? Anyway, my hubby was worried about my lack of weight gain so he bought me a month supply of this drink that they give people in developing countries and geriatrics to help them gain weight. I didn’t think I like it… but it kind of tastes like Ensure or Slim Fast, are those even around anymore???
My husband is so wonderful. I have been such a “dependa” during this pregnancy, and he really does baby me. He’s cooked, cleaned, goes to work, pay the bills, takes care of me and our daughter (and he has one of the most stressful occupations in any career field) — I love him so much.
