At 3am this morning, I awoke with my head spinning. Landon had to help me feed & change Samuel, because I was afraid to carry him, since I could hardly steady myself. By morning, I called my doctor, and made an appointment to be seen. Tracy took me to the doctor, and it was determined that my blood count was normal, and that I was suffering from a case of severe dehydration. I was ordered to start consuming a ton of water immediately. By this evening, I was suffering from a major headache, but had consumed 64oz. of water. I have to keep drinking lots of water. Juice & milk do not count. What is important is to consume at least 8oz. of water for every hour that I am awake--especially while breastfeeding. I don't want to go through this ever again! I felt awful all day today, and I need to take care of myself so I can be the best Mom for Samuel.
