Sorry this update is a little after-the-fact. I had a horrific bout of throwing up the week of February 17th, and managed to lose 6 pounds. I know, I’m supposed to GAIN weight. Anyhow, I adjusted when and how I take my anti-nausea medication and that has helped. Then last night, I had a really bad migraine. The fun never ends.
Anyhow, on to the good stuff! While I am down 3 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight, I am gaining again, which is good. My first trimester ends on March 10th, 2003! I can’t wait, only a week of the first trimester left.
I had a 10 week appointment with Susan, as she wanted to monitor my weight. I was down 1/2 pound from my 8 week appointment, but I assured her I am gaining again. Other than that, the appointment was not very exciting.
However… I rented a doppler from HearTones.com and we have been able to hear the baby’s heartbeat!
Our next midwife appointment is March 28th, 2003 at 4:15 p.m. (PST) ~ we’ll post an update afterwards.
