Today I got a call from my perinatal care manager (I got one because of the heart condition), asking how I was doing. I had to vent for a couple of minutes and explain that I was so tired.... I mean, not tired like I was at first, that I could usually get by without getting a nap. It's gotten awful, to the point where I can't even do ANYTHING because I can't concentrate or keep my eyes open. I thought it was definitely because of the heart medication I got put on (which, BTW, was not Propanolol- don't know what I was smoking when I decided that, it was Metoprolol or something like that), so we both thought it'd be a good idea to call my cardiologist and ask for something diffrerent, although I knew there wouldn't be much of a choice because there aren't a lot of heart medications you can take that are safe for pregnancy....
So I called the cardiologist and they put me on Digoxin 0.25mg. It works for heart arrythmias (which is what I have, not a blood pressure problem like the Metoprolol was for), and it doesn't have the drowsiness effect that the other one gave me. It's supposed to be safe for pregnancy, but who knows. I just want to feel better, dang it!
Then she asked me about my U/S. I told her I was somehow disappointed that the ER didn't send me a disc with all the pictures they took from the U/S I had there, since we considered that one to be the big 20 week U/S, but she did
