pregnancy and meningitis? Mama ♥ 's Bri Due May 9; 2 kids; Southaven, MS, United States 15760 posts

soo here how my day has gone at work... i find out a pt who i was in close face to face contact and ( sailva and blood) ( strep screen and cbc) has meningitis and their sibling is in the office today... so im at freak out mode.. bc i was running slight fever starting on monday (99.5) and neck stiffness ( thought it was just bc of the way i slept) and come to work find this out today ..... omg and to top it off i just threw up my dinner randomly after (not having any ms or anything for months now) any type of warning it was literally like some exorcist shit according to my SO... should i go into the hospital to get checked out?or chalk the throwing up part to pregnancy?



mind you the child that came into work had no signs ( no fever, no stiffness, ) just vomiting and lethargy

You need to be tested so you can get treatment early if you do have it

So we did end up going to the hospital last night... no meningitis thank god



but my Hct was 29.1% glucose was 89..and that's all i remember besides my bp dropping down to 84/46 it was 130 something when we got there which is high for me (i'm usualll 100 or so).. and we got my bp back to stable level (109/76 and 108/68 ) before i could come home which was 3 am...so tired and drained all day today. and i remember being stuck a million times bc they couldnt get the iv in.. pissed me off.
