Well I had my first OB appt Friday...man it was so exciting! The Dr told me though that I should try to stoop taking my Paxil, b/c newborns have been known to go through withdrawal after a bit...isn't that wild? Makes me feel like a druggie or something. So I thought about asking at my next appt if he thinks it'll be ok to keep taking it for most of my pregnancy and then the last couple months wean myself off of it, then go back on it when I have the baby. I'm telling ya, if I don't have my Paxil someone will be shot!
Anyways, the Dr said if I didn't want him to do a pelvic exam (I didn't since I had my Pap the end of March) that we could go ahead and do an ultrasound. Of course I said yes! He asked if I wanted to wait another day so someone could be with me, and I said no I wanted to do it now. I wanted to make sure the baby was doing well so far. Oh my lil peanut is so precious! I saw the heart beating right away, of ocurse that was the first thing I looked for. The heart rate was 152 BPM. I measured at 7 weeks 2 days I think, so that makes me 7 weeks 4 days today. He moved my date to the 28th of Dec, instead of the 26th like the nurse told me who did my labwork. It would be totally awesome to have the first baby of the new year, then we, I mean the baby will get all kinds of free stuff, like a brand new car!
My next appt is June 11th with the Dr that I dislike the most at that office. He's the one who when I had my miscarriage before i got pregnant with Rachelle said that it doesn't matter, it just means I can get pregnant What an a$$. And I hafta pay my co-pay for both that visit and the one I just had, since we were too broke for me to pay it this time
Oh well, y'all have a great week!

Hey Becca,I was PUT on paxil when I was pregnant.I was told it would NOT do ANY harm and would be good for for post partum depression if any!
I guess every doctor has his own way!

Yeah Tammy I'm pretty sure I'll hafta go back on it after I have the baby, if I don't no one will want to be around me, which really isn't too bad a thing to happen
