I had my 14 week appointment today and we heard the baby on the doppler at 150 BPM:) The midwife said that the baby sounded very healthy and that I'm officially out of the first trimester!!! YAY:)
Other than that, I had my annual physical at this appointment, which wasn't so fun. Pap smear, mammogram, yada yada. I guess it's routine for early in your pregnancy.
The midwife told me in regards to my throwing up and nausea that I needed to up my dosage of Zofran (which doesn't seem to be working so far) and taking unisom and vitamin B-6 together. So I'm going to try that at night first to see how sleepy and useless it makes me. Who would've thought of taking a sleep aid for morning sickness?
I also have that nasty virus that is going around and you guessed it, I can't take anything except Robitussen PE which does not do anything except leave a bad burning sensation in your chest and throat after you throw it up.
Alright, the venting is over. Like I told the midwife today, I just want to enjoy my pregnancy and I feel like I'm doing more complaining than anything when I should just be grateful that Adam and I got here. Please don't take all this information as complaining, if you are a loyal reader, you know Adam and I are anything but ungrateful. I'm just hoping that the nausea ends soon cause that would solve a lot of problems.
Adam has been such a trooper through all of this whining. He rubs my back (when I let him) as I'm dry heaving over the toilet, opens doors for me and takes my arm when it's icy out and he thinks I'm going to fall. I love him to death. He's going to be such a good daddy:) He talks to Exit (what we affectionately call the baby until we find out what it is) and tells him/her to stop making mommy sick. I wish he/she would listen. HAHAH.
Until next time...
