Had another ultrasound today. I went to the ER last Wednesday night because of asthma and anxiety. They couldn't find a heartbeat on the doppler because it was just too early. My OB, kind and loving soul that he is, did an ultrasound to reassure me. All is well. Baby is growing, heartrate was 180bpm again.

I've lost 9 pounds in 3 weeks. Since I'm a big girl to begin with, he's not terribly worried. I've been stressed and nauseous, so its ok. He just told me to make sure I eat when I'm hungry and get 3 meals a day.

I'm having awful hip pain sometimes. Right in the middle above my butt. He recommended a heating pad and a chiropractor. Fun stuff!

If we don't get the asthma under control with the current plan, I'll have to go see a respiratory specialist at my hospital.

Before today, I felt so-so about my OB practice. But today, he showed genuine sympathy about my grandma and everything I've been through this month and he was quick to let me have a peek at the baby. That goes a long long way...
