Baby's First Trip to Labor and Delivery

Today we ended up in labor and delivery because I was very dehydrated. It started out two days ago when I threw up seven times. Yesterday I felt a little better until I went to the license branch and almost passed out. I had to sit down for about 30 minutes and then I felt a little better. I went home and drank tons of water and ate Don Pablos for dinner. This morning I woke up and was sick again. I threw up four times and decided to call my OB to ask for some nausea medicine. She ended up sending me to the hospital for fluids and prescribed me some medicine for my nausea.

I have never had an IV before and it was kind of scary at first, but it didn't hurt at all. The fluids were so cold and I was freezing the whole time. It wasn't the best experience, but I do feel a little better now. The only downside of the nausea medicine is that it's making me very sleepy. I will take sleeping over throwing up any day though.
