Crack-Cocaine for Pregnant Women


Dr. SBS saw me for my appointment today instead of a PA or nurse-practitioner. Usually, when the doctor comes in, it is not good news. Instead, this was just my “graduation” appointment; I have been returned to the care of my regular OB. He is advising that I be “scanned” throughout the pregnancy (thank you!!) and that I continue the Lovenox/baby aspirin until week 36.

Heart-rate is still good at 176bpm and is measuring right on track at 9w4d. We got lots of images of wee-beastie and then — here is where he became my crack-cocaine dealer — video of the entire ultrasound complete with 3D images that I can watch on my home computer and audio of the heartbeat.

Wee-beastie had its hands up in front of its face, trying, I can only assume, not to vomit from the hormones just like me.

    Happy Graduation Day!!! I am in awe and amazement of those pics. I do understand the crack cocaine reference. I can not get enough scans. YAH YEAH Wee-beastie

    Awesome! CONGRATS ON THE GRADUATION! I wish I could have one of those scans. I have to pay $150 to have one later on in my pregnancy. Wee beastie is looking great! I am so happy for you. :]
