So today we got to hear the baby's heartbeat! It wasn't without it's drama as it took a bit for my dr to find the heartbeat (which had me totally panicked) but everything's great and the hb was in the 160s, which she said was at the higher end of the normal range

Most of the appt was actually about my m/s...the weight loss since last appt has them concerned. Basically I've opt'd not to be put on a 3rd m/s med (for now) but if I lose 2 more lbs then I either will need to try an additional med and/or have home health care where they come in and provide daily IVs. Blah

Anyway it was awesome to hear the baby's hb - we did a little recording of it...not sure how i can share it on JM, but will try to figure that out later today.

Yay!!! I'm sorry about the m/s situation. I hope it gets better. What other med are they wanting to put you on?

Woohoo on hearing the hb Lara! I hope the m/s gets better and you don't have to do the IV's.

I think it was called Reglan? I wasn't familiar with it...it would be in addition to the Zofran and Phenergan...i opt'd no only because i'm already worried about how many meds I'm on, and she didn't sound all that optimistic that the 3rd would necessarily improve the situation - just that it might, and for some women it was helpful. So i'm just in another watch-and-see week and since my next appt with her isn't for an month I have to call in if the m/s gets worse or if I lose any additional weight.

YAY for hearing the h/b, isn't that the most wonderful sound in the world?
I'm sorry about your m/s and loosing all that weight, I hope that you can start gaining some weight soon (this will be the only time I say this).

Lara, Congratulations on a fantastic appointment. Isn't the "whoosh whoosh" of that little heartbeat one of the best sounds in the world?

I'm soooo hoping you get relief from the m/s so that you can start enjoying this PG! Thinking of you! And keep us updated about your next appointment!
