The One Where I'm Sure

I've had some kind of stomach bug this weekend. I'm not really sure what it is, but it hit me early on Friday morning. I ended up going to the doctor on Friday afternoon because of the horrific pain I was having in my stomach. It was like the WORST case of indigestion I've ever had and nothing, I mean nothing, touched it. I took Rolaids, Zantac, and something my mom bought me at the store. I was so sick on Friday that I couldn't even drive back to my house (about 30 minutes) so I went to her house and crashed.

The doctor at the Doc-In-A-Box couldn't really figure out what was wrong with me, but told me to take Prilosec twice a day for 5 days. When I woke up on Saturday morning, the pain was gone but the nausea wasn't.

I haven't really felt like eating anything and sadly, coffee holds no appeal. I laid around the house like a dishrag most of the day yesterday and today, though I did finally shower and make it to the grocery store.

But still. I haven't felt like this since I was pregnant. And no, I'm not pregnant. I got a test and took one just to be sure. It was a definite no.

And I have to tell you, I thanked God. People always ask me if we're going to have any more and I always answer emphatically, "NO!" And this is how I know I'm sure...there was not even one tiny ounce of hope that I might be pregnant. Not one. Not even a sliver.

Just a hope that I'll start to feel normal soon.

I know what you mean about the third.
I feel the exact same way. NO. WAY. (And now, it's been made permanent.)

Re: your stomach pain: Do you still have your gall bladder? It sounds very similar to what I went through before I eventually ended up in the ER and admitted and had my gall bladder out.

Can you get to a gastro?

I think a lot of moms take that kind of pg test at one point or another!

I hope you feel better soon. I'm with AndreAnna - I think you should have your gall bladder checked out. Especially if you're not having any other...shall we say...stomach virus symptoms? If it's not your gall bladder, at least you could rule that out. Just a thought!

Feel better!
