Still I could not stomach an ounce of food or water and felt myself descending into a pit of despair. In trying to watch the Oscars, when a winner got on the mic and sang, "I Sing Because I'm Happy", I burst into tears. I knew then I had to admit to myself that I can no longer cope, and I need help.
I first called the doula to talk about this horrible nausea and see if she could recommend any safe remedies - she said she'd never heard of late term nausea (although a quick google shows this is very common) and said it was imperative I make my NST appointment today, even if she has to drive me. Then I broke down and called my sister and asked her to come out ASAP rather than waiting another week. I hate to jeopardize the time I was supposed to have with her when the baby's actually here...but I'm desperate. If I go on being this sick to my stomach I am simply not going to be able to function. And that's that. I'd also like to note I took my blood pressure all day and it was very high, even when resting, even after several re-dos. So something is up.
So hopefully I can somehow crawl through today, get to my appointment, see what's what, and then my sister will be here tonight. Thank God for family, is all I can say!!!
