  • Anyone know how I can get my username switched back to danijo. I don't know why it changed, but I don't like it.

  • I'm surprised they won't do a meet with you first. Ours insisted that dh and I both meet them first and talk about any concerns. They also said we both had to be 100% comfortable with a midwife. They even wanted my 4 year old to be there! Lol @alm52386

  • @Kylieslip24 I know, it's super weird! DH was not happy haha. It seems like most of the midwives around here only do homebirths. I think there are 2 clinics that have midwives. I'll check the hospital's website too. I did find a midwife that offers enhanced doula care which we might look in to.

  • Our area is the same way. But home births are also really big around here. My midwife said she does 95% homebirths and she was the only midwife who had privledges at the hospital. When we did our tour the nurse said there are three now so they must have just hired 2 more. I hope midwives at the hospital starts getting more popular, it's a really nice middle ground option. 
  • @danijo-2 you may have to talk to the BGs and request it be changed back. That is so strange that happened to you and @krex-2

  • @mirdamae03 How do I determine who the BGs are? They're a mystery to me.

  • @alm52386 I had a similar experience as @ellie111227 . While I was induced and on pitocin, I expressed a desire to go without pain meds, and they were never once offered to me. I'm sure I could have changed my mind, but I didn't and the subject never came up again. I was asked what I wanted and communicated with during my entire labor. While I am sure some OBs and hospital staff may push meds and interventions, they are certainly not all this way! Seeing a midwife is no guarantee that you will get the birth you want. Definitely try to meet or talk to the midwife first to see if you would be getting what you are looking for. :smile:

    Ha! Same, I've never actually had to reach out to them either, but maybe @BumpAdmin or @bumpcaitlin-2 could help? Or emailing [email protected]?

    Soooo... if you can't see your vagina that means it no longer exists and you don't have to worry about grooming it, right?
    I haven't given up yet... Fogless shower mirror for the win. Lol, but I am stubborn... I'm sure once we get closer I'll say F it... I will start getting my legs waxed within the next month or so though. 

    You know that we're getting close to our due dates when you go grocery shopping and the almond milk expires 10 days before baby is due  :# 


    I thought I was doing a good job just blindly going in. Then I took a bath instead of a shower yesterday and realized I was actually doing a terrible job. No comments from my DF so I'm just gonna go with it.

  • Soooo... if you can't see your vagina that means it no longer exists and you don't have to worry about grooming it, right?
    Funny, I sort of thought about this while I was attempting to shave my legs yesterday, "there has to be somewhere I can go where someone would do this for me" I know there's waxing - but a man can go get a straight shave, can't I get a leg shave?

    I have a scheduled c-section and I really don't want a nurse to have to shave me before surgery so I know I'll have to figure something out soon. A fogless shower mirror is a great idea!

  • DH keeps offering to shave for me and I keep saying no. I'm afraid he will cut me!! I do find it easier to shave laying down in the tub though.

  • @Knottie42089123 I didn't actually find waxing to be much worse pregnant so hopefully it's the same for you! I've only had 2 since being pregnant but I felt like getting waxed around the time of my period was significantly worse.

    Have you ever tried sugaring instead of wax? I found it much less painful for a Brazilian and had the same end effect (haven't tried either while pregnant though)

    THIS.  OMG, SO MUCH THIS.  
    After reading, I was actually going to comment/warn:  Shave/wax your own vagina beforehand, because DEAR LORD the nurse who shaved me before my emergency c section had NO MERCY!!!!!!!!!!!  And I had trimmed fairly well beforehand (or so I thought!)

  • I hate the guessing/waiting game when your kid is sick and you're trying to decide if they need to see the pedi or not. I keep going back and forth on whether I should get him checked out but usually I don't like to go in unless I'm fairly certain they're gonna be giving us a script for something. 
  • @huskermom14 ugh that is the worst.  Hope your little one is feeling better soon!

  • No one shaved me before my c-section!  I guess they didn't care.  I'm pretty glad because shaving irritates my skin to no end.

  • Thanks @FSUNole31! He's been running a fever for the last few days and has had a cough/sore throat. This morning his fever is gone but his cough is worse and he hasn't peed since I changed his diaper at 9 last night. I just can't figure out if it's worth going in for or not.

    Wait, wait, wait - nurse who SHAVED YOU. I did not consider this a possibility! Wtf. Is this only with csection???
    EmeraldNC
  • @tjvan Yes.  I will be fully groomed/prepared (on my own) before this scheduled c-section.  The nurse even joked last time, "You had no idea you'd be getting such a spa treatment before having this baby did you?!"  Oh it was NOT fun.

  • @huskermom14 is his cough progressive?  Is he able to work stuff out?  I would also be nervous about the not peeing, but maybe you can really push the fluids today and see how he is this afternoon.

    He's not working anything out with it. It sounds junky but his lungs are nice and clear. He did finally pee so I'm not quite as worried about that anymore. If strep hadn't been going around daycare I wouldn't really be concerned at all, but the fever and coughing have me on edge a little. 
  • @huskermom14 poor guy.  I am glad he peed.  Hopefully it isn't strep, I know how much it sucks to worry about sick kids.

  • I just scheduled my 3 hour glucose test. I found out I failed the one hour on friday. I'm glad my doctor is back and has me set up to eat jelly beans instead of drinking the glucose drink that I've never once kept down. I'm nervous about possibly having GD, but I'm just trying to stay positive. I know it's not the end of the world and the most important thing is having a healthy baby girl come June 15th-ish.
  • Thanks @FSUNole31. He's always struggled with strep/ear infections/sinus infections so that doesn't help. My throat is starting to hurt as well so now I'm wondering if I shouldn't get him checked out just to be safe.

  • I'm pretty sure I am feeling baby hiccups for the first time in all my pregnancies. I have to say - I don't love it. I hate having the hiccups, so feeling this persistent little tap is kind of annoying! (Also, on the other hand, it's kind of cute because any time I feel baby I can't help being happy about it.)

  • @huskermom14  Could you call the nurse and ask what they think?  I do that all the time and they usually can tell you if you need to come in.

    @huskermom14 I don't think the junky cough usually comes with strep, but I always err on the side of going to the doctor if I suspect strep, or it has been going around. I'll spare you my horror story here, but strep needs to be treated.

  • I ended up taking him in because my throat started to hurt this morning too and sure enough, it's strep. So it's antibiotics for both of us. He JUST finished 3 weeks of antibiotics a week's ago. Ughhhh. 

    Did you end up with scarlet fever @mrt? That was another thing going through my mind when I was contemplating going in or not. I'd feel terrible if it had turned into that because I was waiting it out.
