  • Every pregnancy I end up with an IV, but that is because I can't hold liquid of any kind down in the beginning.

  • (op) -I was dehydrated last week because i couldn't keep anything down not even liquids! so I had to go get Ivs for about 5 hours at the hospital. (i'm 33 weeks) I still am not holding food down as well.

  • I was dehydrated when i went into labor and it made it so i wasn't dialating, they even considered a c-section because they tried everything. Then they checked my urine and sure enough i was dehydrated so they started fluids and i had my son 11 hours later. Needless to say i will never go to that hospital again because that is the first thing they did when i was in labor with my daughter but i learned my lesson the first time and made sure no matter how sick i was to just keep drinking water. I never had to get an IV for fluids in between but i had a lot of false alarms so it must have been from being dehydrated.
