Who knew that Tums would prompt people to leave lots of comments. :) Thanks for your interest.
I had two doctor's appointments yesterday, my OB and liver doc. I actually got to meet one of the other OB doctors yesterday and she was very nice. She told me my iron levels are fine (they were tested two weeks ago when they did the glucose test). So, I guess I just like eating ice at this point! She wasn't too concerned about my chalk craving as long as I'm not eating it. She also recommended I try Prolisec (sp?) for the heartburn. I think I'm going to pass for now since my heartburn isn't too severe and I don't mind the Tums. Maybe it's due to them tasting a bit chalky. :)
I also had bloodwork done to check my liver levels and they called last night and the bloodwork looks perfect. Yeah!! That's what we like to hear.
I was very encouraged because the OB doctor said it felt like Baby is head-down at this point. I agree that this seems to be the case now. I'm feeling more movement and kicks above my bellybutton as well which would indicate that this is probably true. We'll see if she stays in place! I sure hope so because I'm not wanting a c-section if I can help it!
I've been getting tired of working the long 10 hour days lately and I'm so thankful to work at a place where they're accomodating. I have cut my hours back just a bit in the morning so I'm now working approximately 8 hour days. It was so refreshing to be able to sleep in a bit this morning and be able to relax. It makes my day seem so much more doable.
