Yay for hearing heartbeats! I just loved hearing their heartbeats. It was truly amazing.

Be careful with the Zofran, it causes a lot of constipation. I thankfully never had to take it, but my co worker did and she did not enjoy that side effect.

My doctor prescribed me prenatals since a few pharmacies in the area will provide them for free with a prescription. Maybe check that out? If not OTC ones are good, just make sure they have DHA in them or get a DHA supplement.

zofran does work. i’ve been prescribed zofran for other reasons, and i find that making sure i eat extra fiber (fiber one bars are great), it can offset the side effects of constipation.

Congratulations! There’s nothing like that first glimpse of baby, is there?

I took Zofran for two months. It saved me. I lost 13 lbs in my first month of pregnancy, and taking zofran stopped the vomitting and the weightloss. I haven’t gained much yet, but I am out of the first trimester and no longer sick all the time. If you need it, take it!

You do not need a prescription for prenatals. Over the counter prenatals are just fine, but make sure you start taking them soon if you aren’t already.

@goldlt83087:  So exciting! Congrats on your healthy little one.

Pre-natals are over the counter and you can pick them up at a local drugstore, Target, Walmart etc. I would highly recommend Nature’s Made Pre-Natals with DHA Softgels (about $15.00 per bottle of 60’s). They are a reputable brand and have the best dosages for the required nutrients including DHA for baby’s brain and eye development. It is what I am taking now for my little peanut. ๐Ÿ™‚

(PS I happen to work int he dietary supplement industry so you know I wouldn’t lead you a stray!).
