I don't see the doctor again till my third visit.
Don't worry about the Zofran if you end up needing it. I took it a few times during my first trimester and it is completely safe. I know a few other pregnant women who also had it prescribed to them. It really didn't help much with my nausea though, it's good for keeping food down if your not able to keep anything down. I also took Phenergan and it actually worked better for the nausea for me.
Also, just to let you know with my first pregnancy I had the worst morning sickness the entire pregnancy, It felt like I survived on crackers and water the entire 9 months. Now with this pregnancy the nausea was only bad for the first trimester, now I can eat anything. So you might get lucky and not have bad morning sickness this time around.
