@Summer. I'm glad things are looking up for you and DSS
@BIB. Always full of useful information. Love it
@Bongley. When do you fly out to Canada?
hello to all the other ladies xxxx
I'm going to call Dr M this morning. This Metformin business has to stop.
I took the Metformin in the evening, held it down without vomiting, went to sleep at 11pm, at 1am my DS called out for me. I sat up and thought "oh no, I'm in trouble". I tried to walk to his bedroom but staggered uncontrollably from wall to wall holding onto anything I could to stay upright. I looked like a drunk person in a movie and felt like I'd been unwittingly drugged. My head was a mess. I was worried I was going to lose consciousness while asleep. I staggered to the kitchen and slowly sipped juice and ate a plum. When I woke 2 hrs I felt a good bit better, and now I feel normal, but it was flipping scary, esp on my own.
I can't be on a plane or in a foreign country feeling fully drugged and out of control of my body.
@Charlie74 do you have an thoughts on last nights episode?
I am very saddened by your loss. I have no words. Just heartbreaking.
Absolutely. To be honest I don't even know how you are managing to put one foot in front of the other at the moment hon, but then again I suppose you have to for your other baby.
It is very hard to find a silver lining at times of distress such as this. I thought a lot about you, your DH and your two beautiful babies last night. All I can come up with this is that I am extremely grateful that your little one had his/her twin with them when they passed, and they were not (and still are not) alone.
Your little bubba never knew pain, or loneliness, or hunger, or cruelty. All he/she ever knew was the surrounding love of his/her Momma, Daddy and beautiful little brother or sister.
I am sending the biggest hugs and love your way today hon. Please take care of yourself and your precious little babies. I am so sorry that one of your little ones was called home.
Oh @Tahli, that is terrible, and from an outsider's perspective I really do think this needs to be addressed too. I know there must be a purpose to this Metformin, but at the same time I think in order to grow a healthy baby it really is a case of 'Healthy Mum, healthy bub." And hon, you don't sound well.
Granted, I've never taken this drug, and I do apologise - I don't even know what it's for! But this doesn't sound normal to me - it sounds almost toxic. DEFINITELY give your FS a call today because I think you've suffered enough, and as you said, you need your wits about you for the next few days.
Big hugs hon
