Pregnancy Watch 2009

For those of you who do not know, my daughter is 37 weeks pregnant.

She came down with a stomach virus yesterday and was violently ill. She had stomach pains which somewhat mimicked labor pains, so she called her doctor. He asked her to come into L&D for evaluation instead of going to ER as she is so close to term. She was put on an IV drip (two bags) as she was dehydrated and they found her to be anemic, so she has been instructed to take an iron supplement. He gave her some medication (Zofran) for the nausea and in the middle of the night sent her home. She is currently at home resting.

As for now, no baby yet...

I hope Shay continues to rest and recover from the virus.

Sending prayers! I'm so sorry that she came down with a stomach virus, my gosh that's bad enough by itself, but then to mix 37 weeks pregnant, poor heart...
