Around 6 weeks I was having such awful morning sickness that I was in the bathroom at least twice a day, and was completely nauseous for the rest of it. I was having a hard time functioning and could barely stand without being dizzy. I looked like an elderly lady walking around hunched over all day long. With a toddler in the house and a husband, this just wasn't cutting it. The doctor's office prescribed me Phenergan, which makes you T-I-R-E-D. I couldn't function on that either, I was always napping.
At my 8 week appointment last week I told my nurse practitioner all of my symptoms and described how disabling it all was, especially trying to work. She gave me Zofran this time, which is non-drowsy, thank goodness! It has taken a few days but I am doing much better. I am still nauseous a lot, and at night after work I am pretty much useless, but I'm trying to plug along!
We got to hear the baby's heartbeat and it was a whopping 164 beats per minute! Everything looks healthy and right on schedule. Our due date is officially November 2nd!
Love & Joy,
