Appointment today

No weight again. Doctor is not thrilled. I have an ultrasound Tuesday to check baby's size. I'm not worried because I never gain much and my babies are fairly big. But I get an ultrasound and I'm not turning that down! Smile

discussed that none of my nausea meds are working anymore. He put me on Prilosec. Hopeful that if the heartburn calms down, the Zofran can actually work.

BP is perfect. Belly measured exactly 31 weeks. HB was good but I didn't get a number.

The nurse seemed more concerned about the Braxton hicks turning painful than the doctor. She told me to rest as much as possible. Which I do.

So I have the ultrasound appt Tuesday. A regular appt at 33 and 35 weeks and weekly at 36, 37 and 38 all scheduled out.

I trust nurses alot. I think they see more of the day to day stuff and have really valueable advice.

Glad it went well and they were able to prescribe you something more to help with the nauseau. At least you didn't lose weight.

UGH, the heartburn is killing me too. I think it's par for the course right now though unfortunately. The nausea sucks though. You have really had a rough go of it this pregnancy. SO not fair. At least you're in the home stretch!

I'm glad he looks so good and you get to see him again! Woo hoo. I'm glad they are trying something else to help with the nausea. Hope it makes a difference!

I hope the Prilosec works and will help you out with the nausea. Other then that is sounds like things are going along fairly well. I've been taking Prevacid since about 28 weeks here... I'm pretty sure I would be dead right now without it!

I can't even imagine dealing with nausea for this long Sad Boo. I hope the change in meds helps!
