i give up....yall help me*****update for those who wanted it*****
I feel like the doctor doesn't understand what I am saying.
So let me try to explain to you, and you can tell me what you think.
My stomach hurts. All the time. If I eat or don't, it hurts. If I drink something or don't, it hurts.
The spot that hurts is right under my sterum. Not in my abdomen. When I press on the spot, it is rock hard. It has no give at all and feels like it is ripping my skin in half.
I have taken two different kinds of ant acid....neither help. I have been throwing up a lot with this pregnancy, but it doesn't throw up hurt.
It feels like somebody took my stomach out, tied it in knots, then put it back inside of me.
I don't have heartburn. I know what heartburn feels.like and it is not this.
Also, I have a stabbing pain in my pelvis on the left side. It comes and goes but happens consistently throughout the day/night. Nothing helps it.
So mamas, any ideas as to what is going on?
So, talked to the doctor this am about my stomach hurting so bad.
She is doing blood work to figure out if my liver and pancreas(sp?) Are functioning properly.
My gallbladder is fine according to the tests.
Baby gave us a scare and decided to hide out. We couldn't find the heartbeat with the doppler (which we had been doing since 13 weeks). I was super scared. But after a quick ultrasound, baby is fine. 149 beats per minute.....just hiding. Apparently already the practical joker. I felt a huge relief at seeing the bean happy and moving around.
The doctor told me to keep taking the antacid. And to drink two sodas a day (one in the am and one in the pm) to see if that doesn't help too. I have to keep drinking all the regular stuff too.
I am down another 3 lbs....so that was kinda a bummer but at least it wasn't as much as I thought.
I go back on June 15 for the big ultrasound.
Tomorrow or Friday I should have the blood test results. They put a rush on them.
Hopefully my stomach will feel better soon and bean will continue to grow according to plan!!
