All day Thursday, I was feeling sick. Mild cramping, headache, nausea, vomiting. I made sure I kept up with my fluid intake and took it easy for most of the day. I really didn't want to call out of work so I went in. By lunch time I was still not feeling better. I called my doctor and let her know what was going on and she told me to go home, drink lots of water, and rest and to call her back if things don't get better. 

I left work and had to pull over twice to get sick. Finally got home and just couldn't keep anything down. Not even water.. so I called my doctor and off to the hospital I went. I got there right before 10pm and didn't end up leaving until 4:30 in the morning.. Within that time I got anti-nausea meds, bloodwork, IV fluids, and an ultrasound to make sure everything with the little ladybug is okay.

Everything is looking perfect in there, turns out it's a bad case of the flu! Ugh. I'm glad that it was just that, though, and nothing more serious. After going through a loss it's hard to not think the worst. The ultrasound tech confirmed that "she" was still a "she" and she was having a dance party while we watched. It was hilarious, but a little unnerving since it was 1:30 in the morning. Hopefully she calms down a bit and learns night from day before she gets to big that I really start feeling kicks and twirls ;)
