How I love the Z

Had my second ultrasound yesterday, I was so nervous I did not sleep good, my sister came with me to the appointment I was waiting for like 30 minutes, usually when I get there I get seen right away, the secretary went in the back to see what was going on, I had visions in my head that the techs were fighting over who would do the ultrasound because they did not want to be the one to give me the bad news. The tech turned the screen away from me, my sister stood up to look, I heard her gasp I got scared she was like I see it, its big, but let me be quiet lets make sure there is a heartbeat still there, the tech turned the screen was like here is your baby measuring right on track, I was like omg it looks big, I see nubs for arms and legs, and can clearly see heartbeat without squinting, we saw one of the nubs move looked like it was waving, the tech and my sister started talking she took like fifty million pictures, both my sister and tech were just oohing and aweing then I felt weird laying there with a wand up my hoo hah with the tech holding it while her and my sister were having a social conversation.

RE wants me back in two weeks and then he said if things are still going well he will kick me out, we will also discuss another ob/gyn since I did not like his first referral and the guy has moved to cumming, not driving that far, he said don't go to North Fulton they have been cited for a number of violations in the OB/GYN department, come to think of it it is hard to find a ob/gyn that does deliver there now especially since northside has opened several new locations in different cites, so it looks like I will probally be at Northside. North Fulton is good for if you are doing a waterbirth and are under a midwifes care, but we will see how long that reputation lasts I have heard rumors of another hospital in atlanta starting to offer water births.

I am so happy that my doctor gave me some Zofran, I love this stuff to be able to eat today, and not throw it back up, it does have a weird side effect it makes you drowsy, but not drowsy where you feel like you want to sleep, I felt sleepy but also up at the same time, had a very hard time concentrating at work today.

OMG I feel like crap, this weekend has been the worst, yesterday all I ate was a plain burger at lunch time and nothing else at least I was able to keep it down, I took my nephew to a birthday party at the mall they had pizza from sbarro, I wanted some but was scared I would have to run to the bathroom all the sudden, and did not want to have to leave my nephew unattended, this morning I ate a corner of a spinach and chicken quesidilla and could not keep it down, this time around I do feel different from last time I would sometimes have morning sickness when I ate, this time I am just nauseous all the time and have not been able to keep anything down, and if I do keep it down I wish it would come back up, well I hope on Wednesday these feeling start to dwindle down some, according to the women in my due date club they say it does start to get better going into late 8 wks into 9 wks we shall see, otherwise at ultrasound if it goes good I will beg for zofran, the on call doc from first ultrasound told me no when I asked, her approach is old fashioned anyway according to the rumors in the office. So happy that I will be with my regular RE.

First Ultrasound

Had the first ultrasound today, there were two gest sacs, but one was empty, the other one the heartbeat was beating nice and strong, and I could actually see it, and baby looked like a gummy bear, compared to last Pregnancy cycle I could not make out jack on the screen or see heartbeat, and I heard the heartbeat nice and strong last time I could barely hear it. I am measuring at 6wks 2 days they said this does not change due date because there is so much error in measuring the beginning, doc said I could come back and two weeks and we see two heartbeats, or there will be nothing, I am thinking Baby B is not viable because I should of at least seen a yolk sac and fetal pole, but there was nothing in it and it was so much smaller than baby a, I will post pic when I upload it. No wonder the morning sickness kicked in earlier for me, well next ultrsound is on the 27th if I can make it past that I will be happy, I will be exactly 9 wks and feel a little more confindent about this pregnancy.

Beta #3

Well I got beta #3 on Monday it was 5292, after they had me in a panick all day, I am used to getting called by 11:30 am, she did not call me till 2:30 pm, I was beginning to think it was bad news and nurse was scared to call.

Well the morning sickness has kicked in was eating the best steak of my life for a birthday dinner for my brother and 60.00 bucks went down the toilet, I haven't had any sickness in the morning, just at night after dinner, no let me take that back I did barf up my cup of water I drank one morning.

1st ultrasound is on monday and hope to see the hearbeat, maybe I will actually see the heartbeat since I will be hitting two days shy of 7 weeks, last time they told me it was there, I didn't see a thing but a little piece of rice, so maybe it will be a better view I think first time around I went in 6 wks exactly.
