I am hesitantly optimistic. At my last Dr apt my Zofran was changed from a 1/2-2 doses to 3 full doses a day. So, once again my days and nights are interrupted by alarms reminding to take my medicine. I feel like in the last week I have had more “better” days than I had been.
The down side is that my liver reacted badly to the constant Zofran when I was pregnant with Zack. It caused my liver enzymes to be quite elevated and caused me to have black-outs. The black-outs were bad enough that I couldn’t drive and did not leave the house for months. Just walking from the house to the car was more than I could handle at times.
I have noticed that I have been much more light-headed and weak feeling since I started taking the Zofran more often. We are praying that it does not get any worse. My Dr did blood work at my last apt to check my liver and so far my liver enzymes are in the normal range. He will keep checking throughout the rest of this pregnancy.
I asked him if there were any alternatives to the Zofran. He said the other options were not as strong and since I needed to take it more often as it is was, it would not make sense to try anything else.
On a happier note…Jason and I get to see the baby again tomorrow! We’re excited to get more pictures and see how this little one is growing.
Zack has been very loving toward his baby. He likes to pat my belly and give the baby kisses. He’s going to be a good big brother.
