See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
This week I've been bloated, slightly constipated. Then yesterday after breakfast my stomach went crazy. Last year around this time I went to the ER with severe stomach issues and diarrhea, ended having an intestinal virus. I was doubled over in pain, unable to eat or drink. Yesterday it felt like I was going through the same all over again. I went to the bathroom twice with diarrhea for the entire day, I tried numerous other times and nothing. I couldn't pass gas but I could burp. I went home and laid down and tried to at least get fluids in me. I decided in the early evening to have a bagel with nothing on it, my stomach was all kinds of twisted. When SO got home he played with DD so that I could at least get a little sleep. I slept for maybe an hour off and on. He was nice enough to cook dinner and tend to DD while I camped out on the couch or in bed. I couldn't eat anything else yesterday. I decided to have a small glass of milk before bed, in a few minutes my stomach was twisted and I was crying. I went to bed with my fingers and toes crossed that it was a 24 hour thing and I would be better by morning.
I woke up this morning and I was the same. I didn't eat breakfast but I drank a V8 splash, just that little bit had my stomach twisted. I had a GYN appointment this morning and now I'm cramping and spotting from that. Then, she did the poking and prodding on my stomach and sent me into like electric shock pain. She didn't know so I couldn't get upset with her over it. I know I shouldn't have but I had a cheeseburger for lunch with DD and had a Sprite. All I want to do now is curl up in a ball and go to sleep. I'm hoping that SO will decide to stay in tonight so that I can go to bed early. I may be able to get off work a little early today, but I have to be at work tomorrow. So all the extra sleep that I can get would be awesome!!
Thanks for reading, like I said, no drama - sorry. LOL
Today seems to be a better day. I've only had diarrhea once since last night. I had a small bowl of wheat cereal this morning, it was a challenge not to fill my bowl with as much milk as I usually do. But at least I was able to eat with immediately having my stomach all twisted. I've been drinking clear juice all day (and when I remember, water), though I don't really have an appetite. The cramping has been coming and going, but nothing larger than a dull roar. SO spent the evening between the couch and the bed, though he was able to eat a little bit late last night. He hasn't had diarrhea or vomitting. DD's bowel movements have been getting better than what they were the other day. So, I'm taking a positive guess that this funky stomach bug is finally making it's way out of my system.
