I Just Can’t _____ Anymore!

Fill in the blank with just about any verb  and I think it describes where I’m at right now. The last few days have been extremely rough. Having blacked out 3 times since I was discharged on Friday and having a horrible headache that not even my narcotics can get rid of – I have spent the majority of the time in tears.  I gave up the ghost and went to the hospital last night and spent a good part of the night in the ER where my OB doctor happened to be on call – which NEVER happens at night. I managed to escape early this morning without being admitted as he told me once he does – I’m in for good. However our encounter was not a very good one. We got into a discussion about my activities and health and did not see eye to eye – that’s for sure. As much as I was glad to see him at first- when it was over – I wished I would have just seen whoever was on call. 

There’s not much more they can do for me while I’m pregnant. I feel like I’m beginning to dig a hole I can’t get out of. CUE THE VIOLINS – –  I don’t sleep, I can’t eat, I have bruises from my falls, my head pounds, its a struggle just to breathe and lay comfortably and I’m just not sure I can ______ anymore. 

My blog is a little bit of a roller coaster is it not? I’m laughing one minute and sad the next! I’m blaming it on hormones! I think I will wait to blog again once the Hills and Curves aren’t so steep and sharp!

Thanks for your prayers and support. We love you!

  1. I’m so sorry. I know this is so rough right now. I can’t imagine having all the extra problems on top of being pregnant. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. I love you and am always praying for you.

  2. I just found your blog, don’t know anything about you except this post. But PLEASE listen to me– I’ve had 9 children, I don’t know what number pregnancy this is for you or what health issues you have– but you must get some high-protein food products into your body immediately, I cannot stress this enough! You are definitely sounding pre-enclampsic (along with whatever else is going on with you), oh dear lady please do not delay!!

    Get high-protein drink mix and force yourself to drink a double amt. every 3-4 hrs. Do not waste time with vegetables, fruits, breads, etc. You must concentrate only on high-protein foods of whatever kind you normally eat– meat, fish, cheese, beans, nuts.

  3. Jody, please don’t give up! There are two little baby boys that are counting on you. Yes, life sucks right now but in a few months life will be wonderful, just hold onto that.

    I missed seeing you and your family in Haiti. It was a great trip and we are already making plans for next year’s trip.

    I am praying for you and your family. I love you tons!
