sickety sick sick... sick

I've been puking my guts out all day long. It started this morning at around 2 and has basically been every half hour. It's gotten to the point where all that is left is this nasty, bitter, yellow bile (lovely visual, huh?)
I think it's a virus, but of course I can't be sure. My doc's office prescribed me reglan and phenegren (sp?)- one for day use and one for nights. The reglan hasn't helped all that much. Every time I attempt to rise, the gag reflex kicks in again and I run the toilet. I'm hoping this is over soon.
Don't worry, Batman has been keeping me well hydrated. Since about 3 this afternoon it's been more dry heaves than actual barfing, so that's good. I have been peeing too (in case you were worried) My doc's offic threatened to send me to the ER and right after that my bladder started working again (in fear of the IV needle you know)
Coke has been the only thing I can keep down for any length fo time. A teaspoon every 20 minutes... oh joy! Who knwe I would look forward to being spoon fed a can of Coke?
Low grade fever which the doc's office wasn't too worried about (they were more concerned with how many times I had ralphed and urinated in the last 24 hours). It's slightly above 99.
I think I am going to die if I don't feel better soon...

For your benifit I hope this is a virus! That would not be good if it were morning sickness. I was sick from my 8th week all the way through my 14th, all day everyday I was sick as a dog! It is NOT fun.

Rest and get well soon!

Aww sorry that you feel sick. It does sound like the virus that was going around here a few weeks ago and I hope that's all it is for you. Hope you feel better soon.

You poor thing! I had horrible morning sickness with my pregnancy and it was just awful - there were days in which I thought I was going to puke myself to death. It sucks. Hopefully this is just a tummy virus that will pass on its own. ((Hugs))

When you start feeling better try Jello as it has some good stuff in it to help your body.
