What happened to Rome???!

You may not remember because of all the holiday hustle and bustle, but back on the 4th of January I told everyone that we had booked a trip to Rome. We did in fact, "book" this trip. Has anyone been wondering where the follow-up on that has been?? Wellllll... here's what happened:

Basically, I felt it would be more fun to hit up the ER than the Coliseum. I was up and heading towards the shower-- yup that's pretty much all I remember. I woke up on the floor in the hallway to my husband poking and prodding at me. He really thought I was just tired so I just randomly laid down in the hallway to go back night-night. I completely passed out though. There was not a conscious choice to lay down.

So we head to the ER and just as my husband had predicted I was dehydrated. I had to sit through multiple lectures about fluid intake. I get it.... I really do, I did and still know the importance of drinking lots and lots of water during pregnancy. The hubs and I were battling a cold. We were sleeping with the humidifier on and hubs said that I was hot and sweaty in the middle of the night when he rolled over to snuggle me (awwwww). So I'm thinking this was the culprit.

We spent a few hours in the ER and I received 2 liters of fluids the first went in within 10 minutes. It was FAST and I was all fixed up and good to go. I was left with a little headache but I was good to go. No major issues for me or babe! Sadly, we missed out on Italy/Rome. :( Better safe than sorry though.

What a huge bummer! I'm glad you and baby are okay. If there is any way you and husband could get away for a quick trip to Rome before baby comes-how awesome is that?-you totally should! It is seriously my favorite place in the entire world.
My husband had been in the army for three years by the time we got married so he'd already been nagged to death about the importance of staying hydrated. About a month after we were married, he told me if I was ever hospitalized for dehydration, he wouldn't come get me. :) Glad your husband didn't feel the same way. Take care!
