Very Sick...A horrible night

This is just an update on being sick with h/g and the wonderful news of having gbs this time and a UTI.....

Well, I'm nearing the end of the pregnancy and still sick as can be. I had a slight reprieve from weeks 17 through 22 but then the hyperemesis flaired up full force again. I'm still having to take zofran. Guess I am one of those lucky few who suffer with this their whole pregnancy. There was talk about hospitalization and permi picc lines being inserted so I could take fluids from home but fortunately I have been able to avoid that. I'm in my 33rd week as of today, Jan 07,2003....so not much longer to go!  Though I did learn I am a group B strep carrier right now (did not have this with Zebedia) so looks like I have to get an IV and antibiotics while I'm in labor...wonderful *sarcasm* 
I was really wanting a water birth this round but looks like that may not be possible now if I have to be hooked up to an IV. I will discuss this with my midwives at my next pre-natal appt, Jan 14.  It will be ok though just so long as my little one arrives safe and healthy : )   I also have an UTI right now so I am havnig to take anitbiotics for that and they are making me even more sick than I was. It will all be worth it in the end, but nearly 8 months straight of this so far, being so sick, really is taking it's toll on me!!! LOL
