Pregnancy update

Apologies for the month offline -- I seem to be saying that with every post lately. My DE pregnancy is going just fine, but I have had all-day, all-night nausea. I've got my coping mechanisms though, and I should be coming out of it soon since I'll be 12 weeks this coming Wednesday. I graduated to the regular OB and had my first visit...got to hear the tiny little drum that is my baby's heartbeat! It was great.

Not much other news...I declined getting a lot of the genetic testing because I know that I won't terminate either way. They'll do a blood test on me at about 15 weeks or so, to allow us to be prepared in case there is actually something wrong. So now I just wait for my monthly OB appointment.

Be well, everyone (if there are any readers left!) :D

I've been worried about you, so happy to hear that you are getting along okay. I know how miserable the nausea is. I think I already gave you a website I found very helpful at www.hyperemesis.org

Take care and hopefully in a very short time, you will be feeling great!

I'm so glad to hear that things are going well, except for the nausea of course. I hope that it goes away soon.

such a relief to "hear" from you. i feel i know you more than a little from your beautiful and so honest writing, and have been more than a little concerned at your absence online. am glad to learn things are OK. except for the nausea, of course.

Hello Bee,
Glad to see that all is still "well." Sorry to hear about the nausea. I honestly don't know how you cope.
We also refused all testing for same reasons. We are having our 18 week u/s June 22 so will finally get a better idea how things are going.
All the best hope your nausea now subsides.
Kat :)
