I started zofram today for the nausea and vomiting and we have our nuchal translucency ultrasound in the morning. Other than that, nothing new for me. One week till trimester 2 starts :)

Thanks for the heads up!! Although at this point, I may take the constipation over nausea and vomiting- not sure which is worse. I'll watch for it though.

Ahh 2nd trimester! What a milestone.... Congrats! I will be 12 weeks on Wednesday so I've got a couple weeks to go still. Yeah the zofran works magic but it can turn your intestines into a train wreck.. Nothing a little colace or Phillips can't take care of though..

Hi girls, so I had another ultrasound yesterday for the NT scan because last week was slightly too early and they said everything with that looks perfect and we'll just wait for the blood results to come back now. Then they saw a 4cm tear in the placenta so, guess what, I'm on strict bed rest until further notice. I can get up to go to the bathroom, then right back in bed, laying flat or reclining no more than 45 degrees up. Luckily my work is so awesome and understanding and letting me work from home for as long as I need. My check up is a week from today but the doc said it's a pretty significant tear and a serious situation so not to be surprised if it's not completely healed in a week. Hubby was great yesterday with helping me set up my laptop, etc in bed and making sure all house chores, walking the dog, etc were taken care of. I can't cook because I'll be standing for too long. Praying that this heals quickly- for the baby's sake first and foremost, but for mine too. It's so hard for me to let others help with such routine stuff. My mom is amazing and lives five minutes away so she came over a few times yesterday to keep me company and get anything I needed from the kitchen, let the dog outside, etc. I'll keep y'all updated (not like I have much else to do anyway lol!)

I hope you all are doing well! On a positive note, the Zofram is working great so at least I'm not stuck in bed with nausea and vomiting!

That sounds scarey Lunasmommy! Glad you can actually relax at home for work and are getting that yuck belly in control!

Afm= I dunno girls... No more ms at all and no more motion sickness :D yay. But now I have some serious emotions going and (tmi) my nips have been burning a little bit during the day. A few times this week they were even wet ??? I can feel that baby growing though. When I try to lay on my tummy, my baby knot has gotten noticeably bigger :D makes me happy... Stomach muscles are feeling strained when I pick stuff up that normally doesn't bother me so I'm learning my new limits lol... Ok I'm done now ;)

Lunasmommy, so sorry about the tear. How long dos the doctor think you'll be on bed rest? I'm terrified of being on bed rest. I'm such an active person, and I'm a counselor at a middle school so I need to be there. At least I'm not teaching anymore, that would be a lot harder to miss! Hope you heal quickly :)

Happychicks, my nausea is almost gone too! I'll be 11 weeks on Monday. I asked the doctor yesterday if it was okay that I'm starting to feel more normal, and he said yes, so that's good :) We have our 12 week appointment on June 12 so we get to see the twinkies again :)

AFM, everything is going well! Blood work came back fine, feeling much better this week, and definitely showing! I can't hide it anymore, so I've had to tell people, even though I'm not 12 weeks yet. Hope you all have a great Saturday!

He just said until it's healed... I go back Friday for a check up and if it's healed great but if not the bed rest will continue. The hardest part is that I feel perfectly fine, tons of energy now that I'm almost 14 weeks. My mom came over earlier and we played the old board game Trouble on my bed lol. I'm all caught up on game of thrones and quickly running out of things to do! But as long as little peanut is okay! We ordered a fatal doppler to use at home that came in yesterday so it was great to hear that wonderful sound :)

I wouldn't... doc asked if I had because that's one of the strenuous things that can cause a placenta tear... She asked if I had mowed, moved anything heavy, etc. I hadn't, they don't know why mine happened, but better safe than sorry!

We got our fetal Doppler in the mail today! It took a few try's and a few minutes but we found the squishy's little heart beat :D it was going 136 bpm! If you plan on getting one, just remember not to panic if you can't find it at first. Have patience and go slow. It's really easy to miss in such a big area. It made me nervous lol... But then we found it. Then I moved my hips around into a position that made it louder :D very cool. Can't wait to let the family hear it..,

Yay! We love listening to ours. That's awesome that yours gives you the hb measurement. Ours is just the audio, but it was only $30 on Amazon so it does its job for sure. Anyone starting to show yet?? I think I will be in the next few weeks for sure... I can feel things firming up a lot below my belly button and can't suck in my stomach as much anymore lol

I haven't been able to suck it in either! Lol, it's crazy feeling when I try though, like my muscles are broken... I'm overweight but dp and I both have noticed a difference. I just look forward to being obviously pregnant :D
