Doubled my dosage with the phenergan to 50 mg every 6 hrs for hypermesis(HG) I lost 5 pound sin 2 weeks. Total lost 19 pounds in 11 weeks. We heard the heartbeat Nice and strong and measured on target. We'll see the baby at 20-22 weeks.
Not much else to repot. Jsut told me to rest ad keep drinking water.

My first MW appointment is on August 21st. I'll be 11 weeks and hopefully we'll hear the heartbeat! I talked to my MW today for a while, and I'd forgotten just how great she is.

My appt was this AM.

sigh.

I'm at 10 weeks, no heartbeat.

And because I'm so thin, my MW really felt she should be able to hear something, and she's actually fairly concerned. Combine that with my post-miscarriage tendency to be a little on the uber-nervous side myself...

Well, we're going to schedule an ultrasound for next week, take a peek, see what we're dealing with. My MW's going to swing by in a few days with her doppler to check again, she said maybe just a few more days will make all the difference.

So. In the meantime, this is so so very hard.

sarah, I'm really so sorry that you are having to go through this. : How heartbreaking. Talk to your baby and tell him or her how much you need to hear the heartbeat.

First appointment 8-30

It's funny, and I didn't realize it until now but this appointment is my dd's original due date- she was born exactly one month early.

Had my 2nd midwife appt today. We heard the hearbeat!! (just 1...I just got carried away on the smilies). :

They also did a blood draw and I DID NOT pass out or feel faint. Sometimes I do.

Hooray amelia! That's wonderful! I can't wait to hear ours with the doppler. He didn't bother yesterday because we heard it on the u/s.

ok, there were a TON of appts yesterday and today, where are my other updates?!

I just got back from my 1st MW appointment. It was a 2 hour sucker and we covered lots of things, but it was good. She costs more than she did 2 years ago, but that is to be expected. I heard the baby's heartbeat I kind of forgot all about it until the end even though that is why I waited this long for her to see me.

My next appointment is 9/18 and I'll be 15 weeks.

Had my first MW appt. yesterday at 12 weeks and 3 days. We heard the heartbeat right away and it was around 164!! She took some blood and did my blood pressure. Can't wait to hear it again! I'm finally basking in the glory of actually being pregnant!! Now I want to go out and buy some clothes that fit to show off my belly. All my maternity clothes are for when I am HUGE so I just look fat in them right now~ YEAH, so excited!!

My next appointment (after this Mnday) will be 9/17. It's a regular midwife checkup, hopefully I'll hear the heartbeat, and probably bloodwork. I'll be 15.1 weeks.
