Our Baby June 15, 2006

I had my Early Screen Test done yesterday. They did a sonogram and took blood samples to test for down syndrome. I guess cause I'm an old lady now they have to check for that stuff. Everything looked good, but they said that I may be further along than expected. The sonogram shows me to be 13 weeks, while I am 12 weeks now. The nausea is getting better, but I am still throwing up ocassionally. For two days now I have thrown up upon waking, luckily making it to the bathroom first. It's probably because I am not getting up in the middle of the night to eat. Vomiting on an empty stomach is no fun, but I prefer it to vomiting on a full stomach.

11 Weeks 4 Days

Had my second prenatal Dr.'s visit on Thursday and got to hear the baby's heartbeat; it was nice and strong. The baby is becoming more real to us everyday. I really never thought that I would have anymore kids, but here I am. My morning sickness has been so bad that the Dr. gave me a prescription for Reglan, and if that doesn't work (which it's not) she also gave me a prescription for Zofran. Hopefully, the sickness will be over shortly, I'm almost to the end of the first trimester. Time to go vomit.....
