Still sick...

That about sums it up. I'm still throwing up AT LEAST once a day, but usually more. I'm still taking Zofran like crazy (but obviously it's not working as fantastic as it did when I started). I still have a cold - and coughing makes me gag which makes me throw up.

Plus, I'm not sure what's going on with my throat, but... When I eat, I'm fine. About an hour goes by and it feels like it's sitting in my throat.. just waiting on me to gag for it to come right back up. Last night, I felt the same way and then I felt my And it's like it was a switch that let the rest of the food down into my stomach. So, I'm going to have to work really hard on not eating "meals" and just snacking because my "meals" just want to come right back up. PLUS, when I get hungry I get sick too.

Freaked out a little today, took me awhile to find the baby's heartbeat. Finally I found it. I've been finding it on the right side but today it was like..way far left. It's kind of funny because I'll be able to listen to it for about 30 seconds and then this noise will happen and no more the baby has moved. I'm thinking my kid doesn't like to be doppler'ed. LOL

Sounds like it maybe GERD/Acid Reflux in combo with your nausea. I had it really bad a couple of years ago. Actually I went to the doctor because I was wheezing really bad and I had a feeling like something was stuck in my throat. I was surprised to learn it was acid reflux. Snacking will help.

Thankfully I haven't thrown up this week. I still have the nausea, but its not as bad. Teeth brushing and pill taking are still my worst parts of the day though.

I hear ya on the heartbeat. Yesterday it took me a long time to find it. Scared the crap out of me. And it was only for about 10 seconds before it would move.

I think it's really funny sounding when you can actually hear the baby kind of like bump into the doppler (not really, just whatever is below the doppler in your I kept hearing these noises that sounded like the baby was actually kicking the doppler and bouncing off, and then I realized it was probably the sound of the baby hitting my uterus under the doppler.
