I went to my OB appointment today to get my 6 week 4 day ultrasound. Ultrasound went very well... got to see the gorgeous heart beating at 108bpm.
After the ultrasound and waiting in the waiting room, I was guided back by the nurse. Before stepping on the scale, she asked me how I was feeling. I mentioned that I've been feeling kinda "off" but nothing huge. No vomiting or anything... just the occasional nausea and uneasy feeling.... and I made it clear it was nothing.
She then proceeded to ask me if I was on any nausea medicine. I looked shocked at her, I guess, because she then quickly asked me, "Do you need some nausea medicine?"
Um... NO. I'm not vomiting, I'm not miserable, I'm not unhappy, I can still work (unfortunately... LOL)... why are you trying to shove Zofran down my throat?
What is with that? Why can't we just let our bodies do what they are supposed to do and be happy with it?? Most of us are okay without all this intervention!!
"Oh, but what if something happens?"
Then I'll go to the frickin' hospital... just like if I break my foot! In the mean time, I'm not going to preemptively put my foot in a cast, just to avoid the issue!
Western medicine is all about the money making, it seems. They want to charge all of us hundreds of dollars for a few pills, and then when we get sick still, we wonder what's going on, thinking that we get what we pay for right??
Just because it's expensive and people say it's the right thing to do, doesn't mean it actually is.
See this article for proof positive that there is an issue with the pharmaceutical industry!!
Let your body do the talking. If your body needs something, it will let you know. Yes... take advantage of the wonders of modern medicine IF YOU NEED IT. Not "just in case". It's those "just in case" situations that create terrible situations. The risks associated with some of these things, like Cesarean section, are NOT WORTH IT.
Yes, I'm very passionate about things like this, and I feel that western medicine steps in way too much and completely forgets that Mother Nature knows all and ALWAYS wins.
