I managed to get out and about in the snow this morning and make it to my OB checkup. Nothing extraordinary - just the usual work-up. Nothing bad in the urine. BP is normal, too. I am still losing weight (though not as quickly now - just 2 lbs since last visit) - OB asked if I was starting to feel better because the weight needs to start moving in the other direction soon, but luckily my appetite has been coming back over the past couple of weeks so I don't think I'll have a problem there. Besides, I know pregnancy isn't the time to lose weight but considering that I started out this pregnancy 50-60 pounds overweight and this is probably the healthiest that I've eaten & slept (or at least tried to, LOL) in awhile, I am not too worried. I'm sure I'll catch up.

Baby was NOT cooperative trying to hear his/her HB with the doppler. It took a solid ten minutes to pin the bean down! When the OB was done listening she said "Good luck with that - you've got quite an active one in there!" Baby's HB was 165 and strong when we finally got it, though .

I was prescribed Butalbital for my headaches because they've just gotten worse and worse, so we'll see how that goes. And I did the blood work for my AFP screening. Whew - tiring morning!

I hope everyone is having a great day!

Lisa,

Yes, they are constant, throbbing headaches that can be in just one localized spot or all over. I get them behind my eyes, in my forehead and even the base of my skull. I had a few very early in my pregnancy and then they subsided, but they've come back over the past couple of weeks and gotten much worse. I've been having a hard time functioning at work because of them. I've never taken this particular medicine before but I'm willing to at least try it since Tylenol alone isn't helping at all.

glad your appt went well. Hope the meds for the headache help.

ya with my small weight loss the dr was asking if i was feeling better yet and if my appetite was coming back. When I said yes to both he didn't seem concerned. I still don't have a huge appetite so hopefully by the time i go back i'll have gained something. So here's to gaining weight.
