Dr's Appointment at 11 weeks 4 Day

Jun 20, 2011 - 14 comments


arrived at the Dr's office at 2:30 pm turns out he was in OR so had to wait for him until 4PM
had filled and emptied my bladder during this period 3 times lol finally he shows up at 4 takes his first 2 patients then me.
I entered the office really worried and fearful as always before ANY U/S ..
he asked a couple of questions on how my  symptoms r progressing and recommended some thing for the acid reflux I'v been having.  then he asked me to lay down on the bed for u/s. so the first thing he sees when the machine touches my skin was my full bladder of course "Ha, this is a really full bladder!" he comments..so I waited anxiously for him to mention the baby then 1 − 2 mins later he goes " look at ur baby!, he's such an active swirly 1, I usually wait for 10 − 15 mins until I c a movement" and ya this baby was moving like there's no tomorrow showing his back then turning and waving then flipping to the other side..etc..it was the vision of MY LIFE! couldn't believe my eyes..heartbeat was excellent and baby measured exactly where I am which is 11 weeks 4 days NOT 1 day! hehe ...

so I get up, clean up n stuff then the came the time where Dr asked me to stop the progesterone supplements I'm taking....I know its a good sign..but it feels as if I'm detaching my baby from my body..I'm still facing those insecurities and don't wanna go thru another loss after such a beautiful journey so far..
still, I was stuck with a smile for the rest of the day..every time I go in I imagine the Dr saying its over..but instead he's always said its excellent and that he's VERY happy with this baby.

I'm SO thankful to God and everything he's given me that I dont deserve..I'm blessed and feel so lucky ..
wish everyone would b as happy as I am.

OK turns out I have both bronchitis and Sinusitis went to ER Dr wanted to admit me to the hospital says my lungs r blocked and Im high risk need to b monitored for a couple of days..I insisted on trying out the meds first before being admitted to the hospital so she made me sign a consent for that i take full responsibility then I left..after taking my prescription of course.

so my question is:
I'v been prescribed Zinnat twice a day, Bronchicum 3 times a day and a nasal spray..
I dont mind the last two but what do u think of taking antibiotics during pregnancy in the first trimester?!

I need ur advice everyone..Thanks in advance..
