Well, first thing my doctor said when she came into the appointment was "Well, should we take a listen to the heartbeat?" And I was like YEAH!!!!
So I don't know why the nurse said on the phone that they often don't listen until 16 weeks....
Anyway, she found it right away and DH and I were just smiling at each other and listening, I was SO happy and DH stood up and came over to see the doppler and was like WOW. She said the HB was 150 BPM!
I've had a cold for a month and am still coughing and it keeps me up at night even w/ the OTC Robittusin. She said she's seen a lot of colds this winter lasting 4-6 weeks and said she wasn't concerned about it in terms of the baby's health, and gave me a stronger RX cough syrup that is safe for pregnancy. I'm really relieved about this, too!
AND, she said I should keep taking the metformin that I went on for my PCOS because it lowers your chances of miscarriage and gestational diabetes. This is exactly what I wanted so I'm really happy about that as well.
So, the baby is doing well and she said my weight loss is OK and that she thinks it will turn around her shortly!
for a good appointment!
