Most emberrasing moment of the week!
Here it is. My most emberrasing moment, probably in a VERY long time. I would like to say ever, but that would be a different blog story. So, the boys and I are at the pool with a girl from my ward today. It's the first time I've ever hung out with her (her name is Tara). She and I planned a pool day with the boys and headed over to our pool at the club house. Well, two hours into the afternoon I begin to feel a bit hot and dizzy so I tell her I'm going to sit in the shade. She says okay and heads into the pool with her two kids. I'm sitting in the shade and I start to get more and more dizzy. I decide it's time to head home, but by the time I make that decision I realize I'm not going anywhere. Another friend (whom I had met at the pool-she and I go all the time and end up hanging out) comes over and asks me if I'm okay. I think I'm beginning to look a bit pale. I ask her to bring me my water, which she does. By the time she gets there I'm pretty much gone and pass out in her arms. Nothing like passing out in public into the arms of a stranger, let me tell you. I come to and the lifeguards have ice packs on my head and neck and I'm getting water forced into my mouth. The best part is that I'm passed out right in front of the lifeguard station next to the entrance of the pool. So, huge pregnant lady passed out in a green bathing suit at the entrance of the pool. I was so mortified when I came to. All I wanted to do was get up and walk FAR away. The lifeguards weren't having any of that, they called the ambulance. So, five minutes later I'm the big pregnant lady passed out by the endtrance of the pool with 4 paramedics surrounding her and trying to get an IV going (which wasn't working). To make this short, I did get shipped off to the ER while my friend Tara took my boys and called Jamie on my cell phone. I don't know what happend to the friend who caught me on my way down, but I think I should give her a ring and let her know all is good. Which by the way, I'm totally fine. It took the rest of the day resting to get past it, but I think I was just dehydrated. The thing is though, I was totally careful and kept drinking lots of water and eating lots of fruit. It also wasn't that hot-only about 85 degrees. I'm proned to passing out, but this was my first time doing it in public. So there you have it. It may be a whole year before I can go back to that pool again. People will definately remember the prego lady in the large green bathing suit sprawled on the floor by the entrance of the pool. No need to worries though, I'm fine and the baby is good.
