9 weeks and 4 days
Yesterday I had my second doctors appointment. Aside from being sick, everything is going well. Only I can still gain weight despite vomiting every day. (Not that I am really complaining - I understand that it is important and it was only 1 pound. I just found it humorous) I also was able to the heartbeat - 170 bpm. What an amazing sound! A sound that I will be able to hear often. A good friend of ours has a doppler and offered it to us for this pregnancy. I am very excited about that. Thanks again Tam! Not much more to report this go round. There really isn't anything too exciting to share yet at this stage - I figure posting about how many times a day I vomit isn't really something everyone wants to hear about. I did start a generic form of Zofran, 8mg. It seemed to help a bit this morning with nausea, but I still threw up my entire lunch. Pizza is now on my list of "does not come back up easy." I'm still hopeful - if anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks again for all of your notes of congratulations and thoughts and prayers - I really appreciate it! I we could all just pray this nausea would end, that would be awesome.
