Just got off the phone with my OBs nurse. I asked for diclegis which is what I took last pregnancy and she said they have trouble getting it covered since it went generic. She tried to talk me into Bonjesta (the newer non generic formulation), but it was going to be super expensive. I told her the generic for diclegis should be fine? She seemed uncertain of it's cost or whether it would be covered, which made zero sense to me. Anyone else run into this? Anyone taken the generic for diclegis?
What’s the deal with maternity bathing suits? I was late pregnant in the winter before and have zero summer maternity stuff. Are they necessary? Can you just get a regular 2 piece in a bigger size? Going to the beach middle of 2nd tri and just curious about other experiences.
So forget what I said about generic diclegis only being $10. Got a call from the pharmacy that that is correct but that no one can get the drug as it hasn't actually been released to the commercial market, which would have been great to know yesterday. They filled the brand name and it's like 8x that price. I just want to cry. Is it so much to ask for a reasonably priced drug so that I'm not vomiting all day long?
Thanks for the feedback guys, it helps so much!I'm actually %100 in favor of cosleeping, it was my plan last time and it stands now. So I'd cosleep AND have the monitor if I was going to go that route. That might be excessive though... I know baby will be right beside me.. but I do struggle a bit with my intuition after everything that's happened, what if I don't know baby stopped breathing.. what if I sleep too heavy, what if I just miss the signs.. that's my thought process now anyways. Also I hope nobody gets flamed for cosleeping, especially when they've researched and made the smartest choice for their family! ❤️@Kurtni I do understand the reasoning behind not doing the home dopplers during pregnancy, and I think that's wise because unlimited Doppler useage isn't the safest thing as far as all the research I've seen. I do have a fetal stethoscope though and I think we're all able to make the choice that feels best, whether that's not adding more anxiety or preffering to be able to listen to baby in between visits. I think some women really do need the reassurance and others don't. Pregnancy and parenting is definitely not a one size fits all! The thing about having the stethoscope is that you have to learn belly mapping to use it, so I personally feel it helps to connect to baby, specifically because I don't do routine early sonograms.
