Exhausted and Dehydrated!

It turned out that the weekend was way too much for me. It was probably a mistake to go and try to keep up with 14 students while almost 35 weeks pregnant. I was having contractions and couldn't manage to keep any food down. Monday morning I was still sick so I called out of work and stayed in bed until the afternoon. Then I called the doctor. It had been since Saturday morning since I had kept any food down so they thought I should come in. I was incredibly dehydrated and still having contractions. They sent me over to labor and delivery for IV fluids. We were there for almost 5 hours. It took 3 bags of fluid to get the contractions to stop and they pumped a bunch of anti-nausea stuff so that I could keep some food down. The doctor told me to stay in bed until I had gone 24 hours without contractions or being sick and I seem to be much better now. Tanner is doing very well and he is moving all over the place. Now it's back to work but there are only 13 days left until Spring Break and maternity leave so hopefully I'll be able to finish it out!
