I'm a little dehydrated, but I'm still peeing a decent amount, so im okay right now, but i know that if it doesnt stop soon the dehydration will become an issue later. I'm keeping fluids down and they're going through my system so were not at emergency status if I'm just going to be leaving there to go to a different hospital my doc recommends, etc.

Can you get hydralyte out there? Atleast it would rehydrate you until your docs in.

I am drinking water, plain (no salt) broth, and had my last Gatorade a few hours ago til DH can bring me more and let his chain of command know he may need to drive me to see my doc once my son wakes up and the office opens.



If we were at emergency status and I was dehydrated and/or contracting, I'd have gone in last night. But I'm not so I'm just trying to make it through til I can talk to MY doc, not the incompetent military docs at the hospital next to me (really truly awfully incompetent---the OB there refused to refer me to a specialist and said he'd treat me there...my last son DIED there because the hospital didn't have the equipment to care for a preemie and they refused to air lift me to the bigger hospital...and the ER has given my DH penicillin products multiple times---and they will KILL HIM!)

Sorry to hear the hospital close to you is shite, and so so sorry on the loss of your beautiful son. Hydralyte is like Gatorade like it has loads of vitamins an minerals and a little at, comes in powdered form to mix with water or it can come as an icy pole we get em hear in the pharmacys actually made for sickness and diarrheworks everytime for us. It's

Definitely glad I went in. Cervical change (.7cm shorter!!!) and got taken care of. Keeping bland food down okay now. Doc and I are both glad I came in and glad my surgery is scheduled. I'm still nice and long in the cervix, so we're not moving my surgery date up.



And got to see baby too :)



My 15 weeker kicked the doc and he FELT IT! He was impressed and said he likes feisty little babies and said baby must take after mom (he says I am feisty since I tell off idiot doctors---he likes it, haha)
