The doctor didn't think we would be able to hear it at just 10 weeks, but she found it! How happy I felt, what a wonderful little sound!
Now here is a funny(?) story that might amuse you. Here in Italy, apparently Zofran is not used on pregnant women. (But I found a doctor who prescribed it to me anyway.) My gynecologist said "I don't doubt what Dr. L. told you, BUT if you'd just humor me and make this phone call to a special medical center in Milan that knows about drugs in pregnancy..." So I did it, I phoned that place yesterday.
The man who answered didn't even introduce himself over the phone and I felt it would be rude to say "and who exactly are you?" Still, I told him I was taking Zofran and asked him what he thought. He said "Well, that drug is not really the first choice for pregnancy nausea... and instead I advise you to take another drug called Talofen... you can take 10-12 drops of it each night before bed." Those were his words in a nutshell.
After the phone call, I googled this drug Talofen.... come to find out it's an ANTI-PSYCHOTIC DRUG!!! WTH??????? Do you think I am going to take an anti-psychotic drug for nausea? There is no way in hell!..........
Sigh, thank God for Dr. Google, otherwise God knows what I might be taking.
