Poorly me :-( (with tmi)
Feeling a bit sorry for myself today. Been on stupid iron tablets for nearly a month, and been pretty constipated the whole time. Then for the last week i've felt nauseous and had wind and stomach cramps, culminating in diarrheoa which i've now had since wednesday. Was so painful last night i was just curled up in a ball on the bed coz it was the only way to stop it hurting. So after freaking myself out that i was about to go into labour (i've read that diarrheoa often happens a few days before labour) i've been to the doctors today. Which wasn't really much help - she said it might be viral, in which case it should go away soon, or it could be bacterial - so i've got to give in a stool sample before 2.30pm today - but i don't know if i'll need to go again before then! Taken day off work and just feeling miserable. Just gonna spend the day drinking lots of water so little man doesn't get dehydrated. Every illness just feels so much worse when you're worried about the effect on the baby.
