@businesswife yay to passing the glucose test. Hopefully that can be a weight off your
shoulders…lol on the name. Ours change weekly :P
@coco305 oh my goodness I’m sorry about the hypertension but
glad it hasn’t moved to preeclampsia. How
stressful to be looking an induction this week and having to deal with crazy
insurance troubles. Sending good vibes
your way. That’s a lot to juggle take
care of yourself.
@laurad75 hope your move went (or is going well). Don’t forget to hydrate and don’t over do
it!!! Hope you guys have a wonderful
time in your new home J
@coco305, @businesswife, @hottietoddy, jr102217 I know she’s
like a saint, about 6 months ago she had to have a hysterectomy which really sealed
the deal to never go back to treatments so she has been doing some therapy and
stuff to be ok with everything I guess I just didn’t realize how far she
came. We have had several afternoon cry
sessions over the years and I feel pretty guilty about getting so lucky. I have to do something nice. I think I want to write a letter of thanks. Shes mushy and I’m better at being mushy on
paper than in person. Maybe some kind of
jewelry? She loves jewelry and it will
last for sentiment. I stink at picking
things out for someone else’s style though….
@hottietoddy I’m so so so sorry your dog is having
troubles. We had two dogs and lost one
unexpectedly in my first trimester.
(Shhhh don’t tell my current dog but he was totally my favorite). He was so intuitive and sensitive we had a
very special bond. Sometimes I still
have bad nights thinking about him and it was all the way back in February. I was pretty inconsolable for days and on top
of the 1st trimester anxiety I didn’t do well. I haven’t had to take medication for
anxiety/depression in over a decade and had an appointment to get back on medication. By the time the appointment came around I was
still sad but was in control again. I
guess what I’m saying is life is hard.
Don’t make yourself struggle if you don’t have to. For many people and in many cases taking
medication in pregnancy is a much better option than riding the struggle bus to
get through the day. Zoloft in
particular is pretty safe in pregnancy, and our babies by now are pretty
developed so even if you had the talk early in pregnancy with a provider if you
feel like things are hard it might be worth having that conversation again the
risk/benefit ratio may have changed. Ultimately
trust your gut and if you feel medication can be an extra tool for you don’t deprive
yourself of that help (hugs).
@travelingcouple How are you holding up?
AFM, I went to my
consult with the midwife group today…She was wonderful, the other midwife I
talked to on the phone was wonderful and there are only 4 of them which is
easier to build a relationship with. The
lab people are wonderful, the front desk is wonderful, the birth center is
wonderful and they have labor tubs and lax bmi requirements so I could do a
waterbirth if I wanted to. They even let
you eat while laboring (whhhaaat?!?) but its still in a hospital so no transfer
if anything goes wrong. Damnit they are
perfect. So the rub is they are covered
by my insurance but out of network and they don’t bill secondary insurance
(which in my case pays better) so it will be more out of pocket but I don’t
think it will be much, I’ll have to check with the financial person….and they
want to see me weekly because I’m late transfer so more time away from work…and
we have to pick a new pediatrician, and make an appointment with their ob just
in case they need to be consulted with if there are delivery complications, and
bother my current doc to send over my records, and take the special birth
center class…So yeah kinda a lot to take on at this stage. I’m going to sleep on it.
@hottietoddy Yes, everyone is different for sure and I feel
very fortunate that I’ve comfortably been able to stay active. That being said, I think I may have over done
it with the move this weekend.
@travelingcouple Willow is beautiful. Congratulations mama!
@coco305 Congratulations and fingers crossed Ethan is out of
AFM: The move went really well but I was a little more
involved than I should have been and definitely paid for it yesterday. I
started to feel a little crampy yesterday so I stopped what I was doing and
rested the remainder of the night. My
husband has put together the whole house already. All the boxes are unpacked and art is going
up on the walls as we speak. If it wasn’t
for his motivation I would still be living out of boxes!
@coco305 Congratulations and team blue how fun!! What a nice size at 37 weeks wow!! I think Ethan knew he was coming out early! Hoping he's out of nicu soon! Good luck with the pumping! I was excited to give the baby anything and everything too!!
