  • Today at 1pm is an appointment with my high-risk OB. We're having an ultrasound to check growth and then we'll see him. My meds have been causing funky side effects (heart palpitations, shortness of breath, such intense dry mouth that my throat closes up every 30 minutes while I'm sleeping at night, extreme drowsiness to the point that I am not able to function for several hours each day, etc.)--so I'm worried that he's going to tell me that he has no other medication to give me and put me on bed rest.

    I'll post when I return after my appointment--hopefully not from my bed!!!

  • Thanks, Laura.

    I didn't end up on bed rest...yet. But he did change up my medication and wants to see me back in a week to see if it's working.

    I asked him about his cut-off for bed rest and he said, "Whenever I need to put you on it. It could be tomorrow, next week, next month...just whenever we need to do it."
    That didn't help.

    I was also irked that they had me scheduled for an ultrasound originally but for some reason, changed it without telling me. I picked Andy up from work to he could come along because he missed the last ultrasound. Then--the doc was out of the office doing a delivery so we had to wait more than an hour to see him.

    Hopefully the next week or so goes well with the new medication.

  • I hope that they keep you off of bed rest too! What a PITA to have that happen before the holidays. Were you the same way with the other 2?
