I'm finally off the Zofran! Since starting the 3rd trimester I've only thrown up once, which is pretty freaking awesome! Dr. says it's fine to take Zantac twice a day to help with the heartburn (and I have to down Maalox/Mylanta at lunch/dinner) but thank goodness no more am/pm barfing! Everyone always says that the 3rd trimester is the most uncomfortable and hardest, but now that the stomach has finally started feeling better I guess this just might be my best trimester (actually this is the best I've felt since we started IVF treatments back in the fall--minus the constant sciata of course!!!:-)
We went out for Indian food last weekend (which I've been dreaming about and craving forever!!!!). I still feel pretty ridiculous pulling out the bottle of maalox at the table, but it really helps. Welcome back salads, fruit, pizza, tomatoes and my lovely morning iced decaf espresso--I've missed you most dreadfully. Now, the only problem is that I have to eat tiny little meals, but it's so stinking hot here (115 over the weekend) that it just seems normal to eat small "snack" meals throught the day.
We scheduled a hospital tour of the maternity ward which should be interesting. I've never actually been admitted to a hospital (just RE clinics or other outpatient surgeries) so it should definitely be an experience. I overheard a couple girls at the OB's office last week just gushing about the brand new hospital that we'll be delivering at--huge private rooms, soaking tubs, a serenity garden, etc. Sounds great to me! Maybe I can stay there a few extra days for some R&R and send hubby home with the newborn kiddo? :-)
The nursery is finished, got the Target registry done and our church is having a baby shower next month. My three sisters and mom are planning to fly out for a girls weekend and to attend the shower so I'm super excited! Our little niece gets to sleep in the new nursery--and for the first time in 7 years, we actually have diapers and baby stuff in the house! Yep, good times!
