My new thing: napping on the floor in my office. It's comfy, but the carpet leaves an imprint in my cheek (I am a side sleeper). Plus, if students knock on my door, I have to hurry and get up and look like I wasn't just napping.


Anyway, my first OB appointment is Tuesday. I am wondering if I'll get an ultrasound. I hope so. I did, however, get my Baby beat fetal doppler on Monday. I rented one with the last pregnancy, and like the neurotic I am, I rented it again. I love it, really. I heard bebe beating away at 175 BPM. Same as A's at this stage.

I am still feeling nauseous on a regular basis, but not as bad as it was a few weeks ago. I barfed this morning,   but it was less violent than previous days. Yeah!

Question for you toddler mommies: Did your toddler grind his teeth? Gawwwwdd...A has been grinding his newly acquired teeth lately and it is driving me bonkers. Like nails on a chalkboard. I am sure this will pass, but if you experienced it with your little one, when? When did it pass?

Help me down from the ledge...

Ok everyone. I stupidly decided to ask dr. google about zof.ran and pregnancy, and now I am freaking out. I am reading too many scarey stories about birth defects from taking it during pregnancy. I need stories from those of you who took zof.ran. Is your child all right?

It's a wonderful drug, I admit, but have I done something completely terrible by taking it?

One. One little baby snuggled inside.

Heartbeat was 150.

Relief. Elated. Happy!!!

Oh, and relief is coming. I am holding a prescription for Zof.ran.

Nausea, etc..

How the F do women deal with morning sickness and a crazy toddler?

No, for real. How?

Anyway, so nausea and all must mean that something is still cooking. I am quite surprised that I have lasted almost two weeks and not really have thought much about Thursday's ultrasound. So much of this feels unreal. I mean, the one and only other time I was pregnant was preceded by years of trying, failed treatments, and one exhausting trip on IVF lane. I was expecting/hoping/praying for it. This time around, I am in disbelief that this is actually happening. Other than my head in the toilet and the all day nausea.

Anyway, dealing with tummy troubles with A. I weaned suddenly last weekend, and he is drinking almond milk and rice milk due to his intolerance of milk and soy. Poops are a problem. I'm not sure if he has poopy problems because he is fighting a bug or if it is from the milk. Ugh. He's now on a super bland diet of rice, chicken, bananas, toast, and applesauce. And has bad bad diaper rash, so the frequent diaper changes are met with screaming and tears from him (and me!) Of course I am feeling tons guilty for weaning him and causing his tummy troubles.

So, yeah, ultrasound Thursday. DH took the day off work to come with me. It's at 1:00. I told him this is the heartbeat ultrasound, and to not be surprised if there is more than one little flicker. I'll try to update as soon as I can Thursday. See you then!
