Keepontryin13 have you tried the 400mg strength pesseries that you can get from Wazza's office? They are much cheaper than the crinone and initially i only needed two a day. After my little bleed I'm now on 3 but still better overall than the crinone. Might be worth asking about?
Rosie8888 I'm currently on 1/2 a valium tablet 3-4 times a day and am sleeping like a baby. I'm sure if you took one before bed it would be fine. If you want to be sure you could call Wazza and check but like the others said there have been quite a few of us that have been put on it so it must be ok.
@Chyna sorry i forgot to fill you in about meeting Jamie the other day. Hubby and i found him very laid back and easy to talk to. I did get the feeling though that he doesn't necessarily agree with Wazza's methods. I had a list to show him of all the meds i was on but he didn't really seem interested. He said just keep doing what Wazza said until you get to 12 weeks. He checked bubba but only via my belly and not an internal like Wazza has been doing so couldn't see things quite as clearly. He didn't measure bub or anything just listened to the heartbeat. I thought he might be a bit more thorough. He didn't seem concerned about bub so I guess that was good but I think i would have felt a bit more ressured if he'd been a bit more thorough. I asked him if i can go back again next week for another scan and he said i can go back as many times as i like so that was good. So I'm back on Thursday so we'll see how that goes. Have you found he gets a bit more thorough as you progress through the pregnancy? I think I'm probably being a bit paranoid too after our little scare. Bed rest is hard work with a hubby who is already stressed to the max with work and only my mum to help. Hopefully just 3 more weeks and I'll be able to get back to doing a bit more. Sorry for the long post!
@mrsparso I took a full Valium last night and still only got 3 hours sleep :-( thank gosh I see charlotte tomorrow and drop down to 50mg of prednisone.
Constipation is the worse cause I struggle to keep anything down its making it worse :-( I hav been having movicol also but it's to the point I vomit it straight back up. Hope you are feeling good x
Chyna. That's great to know. I'm sure I'll relax more as things progress further. When youb say you're still taking all the meds do you mean just the supplements like the folic acid, zinc etc? I was wondering if when i got to 12 weeks if i could just start taking the blackmores pregnancy supplement which was all i took with DS. 1 tablet a day is certainly a lot easier and cheaper too!! Thanks so much for the offer of help. I really appreciate that. How have you been feeling? How many weeks are you now? Have you started baby shopping yet??
