The doctors office even called ahead, which was nice - they were expecting me at the ER. Everyone was nice and friendly... and it wasn't busy. All good things. The doc who saw me was positive there was nothing wrong baby-wise, but were going to listen for the heartbeat anyway. Their doppler SUCKED and the first nurse that tried couldn't find it. I wasn't THAT nervous as I had felt movement as I was sitting there... but still.
After ruling out a bowel obstruction (and the yucky yucky solution to that issue), the one thing left was possible gallstones - so I had to get an ultrasound. Now - the u/s tech told me that she couldn't legally sneak a look at the baby - but by the end of the exam, I had used my considerable charm, and lookie what I got:
So - sure, it sucked to have to go to the ER. But getting to see my baby on 3d? So cool!
The final verdict was acid reflux, which I've never had before. I'm on Zantac, and feeling a lot better (thank god).
