Guess where I spent 4 hours of my life today? the ER.
Yep, my all time favorite place. Not.

Not to worry though, all is well now. I went because I was having a really hard time keeping ANYTHING down, even water! So my RE's office told me to go to the ER. I got there and was tortured by Marc, the nurse, with the IV from HELL; he took it out after I cussed (maybe more than a few times) and cried like a baby. It felt like he had his entire index finger inside my damn arm! Anywho, he redid the IV in a different area and it was much better. By the way, he was less than sympathetic, but whatever. I guess I'm just a baby.
So, they took 5 vials of my precious blood and did a urine culture as well. **BEWARE OF TMI** I just have to tell u this... So any surrogate that has been on Crinone, which is a vaginal suppository, knows that it comes out kinda clumpy when u go potty right? :-) Well, the nurse comes in after he takes my urine and says "um, do you have pain when you urine or any pain in your pelvic area?" I was like "no, why do you ask like that?" Then he says "well, there was some visual tissue in your urine..." I was like "um, sir, I told the person when I checked in that I do a suppository twice a day and it comes out in urine" He looked at me like, oh duh, and said "ah, mystery solved". Lmao. It was kinda funny, cuz his face looked like he didn't wanna have to give me scary news.
So anywho, they came back and told me that I have a UTI, gave me an antibiotic thru my IV, some zofran for the vomiting and nausea and 2 bags of fluids to hydrate me. Fun.
I'm home now, resting, and my hubby is gonna go pick up my Rx shortly. They prescribed me zofran and an antibiotic, so hopefully I won't be feeling like complete $h!+ anymore.
So, that was my excitement for the day. Woo. Hoo.
Oh, on a good note, the beta they ran was 79,900!! Hehe! Ultrasound on Friday!
Btw, thank u sooo much to my great coworker for driving me to the ER. I really don't think I would have made it there, I was so weak. And thanks to the world's best stepdad for coming to pick me up and take me to get a grilled cheese when we were done! :-)
