I feel so much better. They're putting me at 6 weeks today. I had me closer to 7, but oh well. They saw the heartbeat which she said came out at 103bpm.

Then they took 25 viles of blood for some kind of prenatal workup and I nearly passed out. I'm diabetic, hadn't eaten, and it was lunch time, and I had had to wait longer than usual to see u/s technician and then the doctor so it's no surprise to me. They carried me to a room to rest, gave me juice and food and put cold packs on my forehead and neck. Glad hubby was there to help and drive me home.

I'm also really sick and she wanted me to have a chest xray! But the chest xray people refused to give me an xray saying way too dangerous at this point which made me question my doctor's competence. :

But I have antibiotics and cough syrup with codeine. Iwouldn't think codeine is safe for a baby either. Anyone know anything about that?

They couldn't give you a lead shield to cover your lower abdomen while they did the chest x-ray?

I hope you start feeling better soon!

codeine is fine while pregnant, as is vicadin. I would think with a lead shield the x-ray should be fine, but i could see their concern. I[m sick right now too, so i feel your pain. Hope you feel better soon!
