I had a good appt today.

My doctor would prefer I take Pepcid to Prevacid, so I'm going to give that a shot. She said that she's afraid that at this point I'm going to be stuck with the acid reflux until Sean is born because I'm done with the big hormonal changes. She said that if I was in the first trimester she'd think it was possible it'd go away in the second trimester, but not this far into the second trimester. I'm stuck with it.

She found the heartbeat, which was nice and strong (she didn't tell me the BPM, but I have a home doppler so I wasn't worried). She also felt my uterus and told me I've definitely done some popping out!

My doctor gave me the hospital packet today! She is not the sort of doctor who would have given the packet to me if she thought there was much of a chance of me losing the baby at this point, so it meant a lot to me that she gave it to me. I've started looking through it all. It also has the information about the birth preparation classes so I'm going to talk to DH about it and get us registered!

My anatomy scan isn't booked until July 5th so I'm very glad that I went ahead and did the elective ultrasound!

Glad everything looks good and that you got your hospital packet! That's exciting!!!

Yeah, they usually want you to try all the lower level meds before going to Prevacid. That's why I've been through them all - Pepcid, Zantac, Prilosec, you name it! If she thinks this is here to stay though, you may end up on Prevacid eventually. Hopefully, the Pepcid works for you though. It's probably cheaper too.
