Re: ***2nd Trimester Check-in, Week of September 5th***

  • Congrats on the baby boy @dragonfaerie.
    well today is my birthday and its definitely not the same when u are on medical leave from work. I'm worried about going places and doing things I don't want work people to see me. My wound vac has been on since Monday and the good news is it keeps looking better bad news I may be out for 6 weeks ugh. I'm upset about the time because it was the time I saved to spend with babies but I guess I will just have to go on disability I don't want to miss anytime with them that I'm untitled too.

  • @ultratomato happy birthday!!! Sorry to hear about your medical leave. Wishing you a speedy recovery so you don't have to take the 6 weeks away from your actual maternity leave. Hoping your job will be flexible and give you additional time off when the babies come!

  • @ultratomato yay!! Happy birthday to you!! Glad recovery is going well. Funny how you don't want work people to see you out and about lol. I had acl and miniscus surgery about three summers ago and was out for a good six weeks. My surgery was in June so I had all summer. Towards the end of my disability I was able to walk without crutches but with a brace so I was out and about the last two weeks of disability.  When I came back I was all tan and my boss goes "were you recovering or were you at the French riveria?" lol. Oooops 
  • @Drove2u @ultratomato Thank you!

    @ultratomato I'm so sorry that you are out for so long. Please try to enjoy your birthday, and accept the restful time for a little blessing. Hugs!

  • @Griffin5413 thanks! And congrats on your house too, how awesome that you should have it ready before baby comes!

    @dragonfaerie So happy for your big baby boy, yay!! Did you pick any names yet? It's great that you have your mom to help, I totally feel the nesting but my body hasn't agreed with my mind lol. I'm planning on little by little start organizing each room, getting rid of a lot crap and pack what I can so the move is easier. DH is great at a lot of things but not organizing, and my fam is 5 hours away.

    @ultratomato Happy belated birthday! Hope you had a good day and that you recover quickly!
