OB Appointments!!

I still can't believe we graduated from the RE!  B and I didn't have an OB because my gyns were my surgeons, neither of them did OB.  So we're on the hunt for the best OB in the area...and with the twins, I'm looking for high risk (on top of all the other stuff). 

We have two appointments next week.  One with a perinatologist who actually delivers- this one really only does high risk, we'll call her Dr. F.  Then Dr. C is on Thursday and she's a standard OB who does high risk as well.  We'll see what comes of both of these. 

I have no idea what the first appointments will be like.  Will we get an ultrasound??? I hope so, I'm nervous that Twin A's heartrate was too low.  Of course I'm nervous.  But I'm still wicked sick, so I know something good is going on in there. I just hope it's some good growing by both of our little ones.

The Zo.fran is the only way I'm able to function at this point.  As soon as I wake up I take it, and it takes about 30 minutes to kick in.  Those 30 minutes are touch and go...I can't really move without feeling like I'm gonna hurl.  Then the medicine makes me dizzy and gives me a headache, but I'll take that over the nausea anyday.

We're 7w2d today! I can't believe how far we've made it!!!  Keep growing luckies!!!


  1. I am so, so happy every time I read an update from you! I hope your appointments go well.

    As for the sickness, I know how much it sucks. I had tablets like you and they barely made a difference, but I'd take the tiniest difference over going it alone! I honestly spent most of my first trimester in bed because if I dared move I would throw up. I tried to leave you a comment the other day but it wouldn't work (I think it was too long), so I'll repeat what I said then (in two parts).

  2. Don't feel guilty if you find resentment at your body for making you feel so ill creeping in with the joy of being pregnant. Being so sick is HARD, and your emotions are all over the place right now!

    In terms of the sickness, try keeping a variety of snacks to hand as what you can stomach will change from day to day. One thing I did find though was that ice cold drinks were much easier to swallow.

    Also, keep the hope that you'll be better by 12 weeks, but don't be surprised if it hasn't gone completely. Mine certainly improved around then, but I only came off the tablets last week, and at 16 weeks now am still getting nauseous regularly. It is MUCH easier though, so you won't be as sick as you are now forever, I promise!

  3. Good luck finding just the right OB! I hope the nausea eases up for you soon!

  4. I love the nickname luckies!!! I hope it goes well! :)
