November DDC ONE Thread- May 2011 - Page 3

OMG Ash!  What an irritating experience and what an egotistical doctor!!!  I'm so glad that you were confident in your baby's health so that you weren't worried by the experience.  But I'm sad that you had to go to the ER to get hydrated again!  I take it the Zofran is not working?  Have you tried the Reglan with it?

post #42 of 68

Thanks.  Yeah, I tried he Reglan once and had a TERRIBLE reaction to it.  I was 20 times sicker than usual, and it upset my whole digestive tract. 

 

In the ER they gave me IV Zofran which actually seemed to work pretty well.  Im just praying for the end of the sickness soon, so I can start to enjoy this pregnancy like I want to.

I don't know anybody's beliefs on here, but I'm asking for prayers, good thoughts, positive energy/reiki, anything you can send our way. Somebody has decided it would be a fun idea to call and tell a bunch of lies about my home/family to authorities. And while I'm not worried about it because I know my rights and know that my kids are happy, healthy, safe, and well cared for...I'm finding myself emotionally drained (my anti-anxiety meds aren't pg safe so that's already high anyway), and very very hurt that someone who is mad thinks that this is an appropriate outlet for their anger. Especially since whoever did it had to lie about being in my home because there are only 3 people besides our family that have been in the house since I got pregnant!

Ugh Ash, sorry things are still so yucky.  You clearly have very strong m/s and the Unisom might not work, but maybe worth a try since the oral zofran doesn't appear to be doing much?

 

Dennie... what's going on?  Someone is calling CPS on you?  Just remember, if anyone comes to your door, DO NOT let them in without a warrant! 

 

Hugs mamas!

Pretty much, yes. We know who it was, and it was all false and basically a petty vindictive move on their part. What makes people think that's an okay way to release angry and hostility is beyond me. Especially when it is so very false. We've got a meeting on Friday (I didn't let them in yesterday...), and I fully expect things to be closed quickly. Yesterday I was in high anxiety mode. After some sleep and speaking with people at the CPS office, I feel a lot more confident. Just very hurt and angry; this person's child has been like a sibling to me for 13 years, and now I've lost that. :(

I had my first appointment with an actual midwife today.  She looked at the info from my early sono (which dated me at 9w6d) and said it dated me at 10w1d, which would make me 13w1d today instead of 12w4d, which I know I am based on my ovulation day.  I argued politely for a bit that I wanted the later due date, but she said it was just a few days and she was going to go off the sono.  Sigh...  I won't be birthing with this practice anyway since we're moving, so I stopped arguing to attempt to have a nice appointment.

 

So she's doing the breast exam and we're chatting about this or that and before I knew it her hands switched from doing the breast exam to using the doppler.  I was going to decline the doppler.  But, I figured once she was doing it I might as well let myself listen to the heart beat.  And then she couldn't find it.  She kept looking and looking, getting more and more concerned.  Finally she gave up and said she was going to get me in for a sono today to make sure everything is alright.  I declined.  She reluctantly says I can come in next week for her to listen with the doppler again.  I hem and hah asking if I can just wait until my next prenatal.  I know that everything is fine.  I can feel the baby move and I'm still plenty nauseous, no bleeding, no cramping.  I'm just not worried.  But she clearly is!  So I say, how about you try again after the rest of the appointment (pap, pelvic exam, etc.)  She agrees.  We try again and still can't find it.  She's about to give up and... there it is!  165.  Fwew!  I was a bit relieved, I admit, but she was beyond relieved and grasped me hand with a big sigh and a smile.  I wonder what she'll do next time when I ask if I can decline the doppler all together.  lol.gif

Gotta love those docs that don't want you to trust your body ;)  I had a similar experience a page back.  Good sticking to your gut!

post #48 of 68

It is frustrating to feel like I know somethings more than some doctors do. I think my current ob did not have a clue about charting. Yes, I am positive about the date of conception due to charting and he said how do you know for sure...you had sex on more than just one day, right?

On another note, I am feeling really good today. I went on a 15 mile trail run up a mountain and down with my friends. The longest run since last fall. No nausea all day and still have energy. 13 weeks tomorrow...maybe the end of crushing fatigue and nausea is near.

I know what you mean and it's not just charting!   And my goodness mama, you're a super mom running 15 miles while pregnant with twins!!!!!   superhero.gif

I have my first prenatal appointment with my midwife for this pregnancy is next Thursday. I'll be 13 weeks. I've been feeling the baby move the past 2 weeks and I just noticed my uterus is close to my bellybutton already. :) Exciting!

Yesterday was the third birthday I have celebrated while pregnant.  I hate not being able to enjoy my birthday cake!!  Boo on m/s!!!! 

 

On another note, I just go the biggest shot of adrenaline... In the 2 minutes I was changing laundry in the basement, my ds (16 months) opened the back door, went outside, opened the GATE (not an easy task and something he has not done before) and went into the unfenced front yard. I found him standing in front of a FedEx truck, happily waving to the delivery man. O.M.G.

Had a NT scan yesterday. I went from a 1 in 63 chance of having Downs babies to 1 in 1200. Very reassuring. Babies are both measuring 4 days ahead and look healthy. My energy is returning too. Yah! I am happy!

post #53 of 68
Had a great prenatal appointment today. Am measuring a few weeks ahead (which I knew). Although she found heartbeat of both sides of uterus, she thinks it's just one in there because the rate was about the same. That's common, right?
 
Can't wait to find out gender in about 5 weeks. 18 weeks is the earliest you can tell?

Yes, they move around a lot so if baby was being cooperative and letting itself be found by the doppler, it was probably just one moving around, but you won't know until your u/s!  It's really hard to confirm twins with a doppler.  Oh, and a lot of women have success at discovering the gender before 18 weeks.  More depends on how cooperative the baby is at giving the tech a crotch shot.   lol.gif

Today, my MW found a heartbeat everywhere but my toes. Seriously, the little guy was all over the place. I didn't know there were so many places to go!

 

We found out the gender at 15.5 weeks. Good luck!

 

 

 

Congrats, EonJourney!

Im super jealous!  We have yet to hear a heartbeat- our little baby just couldn't be found in there. 

 

 

 

 

I just want to take a moment to publicly express my distaste for pregnancy rules such as "no sushi" and "try not to sleep on your back". Knowing these things makes me want to do them even more.

 

I really, really miss sushi.

Sorry! I'm sure it will be soon. Waiting sucks!

 

Okay, pregnancy rules. There are always a million rules for women if they want to be "good"... a good mother, a good wife, blah, blah, blah. But only in pregnancy is there actually a "good mom" way to sleep. Seriously... like I need guilt for not being able to make it through the night on my left side?! 

 

You know what I miss the most? Okay, well, honestly it's beer. But after beer, it's laying on my stomach! I do not know how to read in bed anymore. :(

If it's a safe source- enjoy your sushi! Japanese women think we're all crazy for avoiding it! And if I liked beer, my midwife and my family doc have both said a single glass of beer/wine once in a while isn't any harm. Too bad I pretty much only drink vodka or rum. I'm having vodka with my turkey dinner this year as long as little one doesn't go overdue! ;P

You could go for sushi that doesn't have raw fish in it like cucumber, salad, or avocado rolls.  I'm a vegetarian and love veggie sushi- safe to eat while pg and might satisfy that craving!

Whoever said they miss beer, count me in!  My DH is a home brewer, he grows his own hops for it, and boy do I miss it.  That doesn't stop me from taking sips of his at dinner, but I stay away from a full glass.  I just don't feel good about it, but I can't wait for that home brewed stout that I'll drink after delivery.  

 

I think, that maybe, just maybe I am feeling little flutters of movement.  I am 14 weeks and 3 days, my placenta is growing on the front so my midwife said I may not feel much until a little later on.  

 

Did anyone see that segment on the Today show of that woman who's baby grew outside of her uterus, in her abdominal muscles.  The baby is completely healthy, so amazing.  

 

Happy growing 2ndtri.gif
