32 Week ultrasound

Oct 29, 2010 - 2 comments

Doc said everything looked great with the baby! Fetal weight gain was good, went from 2 lbs 12 oz , 58th percentile four weeks ago to 4 lbs 11 oz, 71st percentile.  And the baby isn't the only one gaining lol... but that's just because I need to stay away form the Halloween candy, cupcakes, and cookies ;oD  
Just hope the baby doesn't grow too much in the next 7 to 8 weeks... my DH was a 10 pounder... sure hope that isn't hereditary lol.

Weekend fail

Oct 18, 2010 - 3 comments

Oi, so we purchased a new car, well van, on Wednesday.  They took my trade-in and gave us a loaner van because they are bringing ours in from somewhere else.  It was SUPPOSED to be here Thursday or Friday.  Then they told us the one they were trying to get us had too many miles on it so they would have to get us a different one which would supposedly be there this past Saturday. Well, on Saturday they told us it would be Monday .  
So, we were taking the kids to a Fall Festival Saturday and hubby was in the turn lane to make a left on the street next to the park where the festival was.  Then he realized that they had barricaded the street off.  Silly hubby goes to get back into the other lane, without checking first, and collides with another car.  The loaner's mirror got busted right off and both cars have scrapes down the front side.  Ugh.  Now we will have to use savings that were meant for baby to pay for this calamity :o(  We have insurance, but aren't sure how it'll all work out with the deductible.  And since we gave my car to the dealer we only have insurance on dh's truck, which he says is liability only.  So I wonder if that means we are out of pocket for the damages to the Toyota...?  Anyhoo, it is annoying.  We didn't ask for the loaner, I thought we'd go in, they would order us the van we wanted and THEN after it got here we would sign all the paperwork and turn in my trade.  But they did it all right then.  Not that it makes a difference in what happened, but I'm just saying they didn't even offer us supplemental insurance on the loaner, and if we'd have been in my car when this happened (it had better insurance coverage but we canceled that car after the trade-in) it would have made things better for us :o(  Oh,well, surprisingly I am not as stressed as I usually would be.  I hate blowing money on stuff like this.  Maybe those pregnancy relaxin hormones are kicking in lol.

This was the worst surgery yet.  I am beginning to regret even having these stents changed out.  I mean I was hurting before, but now I can barely walk (and when I do I look like a hunchback all slouched over and walk at a snail's pace).  It feels like the darn stent is trying to poke through my groin (Ow).  My left kidney hurts worse than before he changed them and I am having terrible lower back and hip/pelvic pain.  Some of it is probably from the spinal anesthesia.  Oh, yeah, and speaking of the spinal, My urologist mentions *after* the spinal anesthesia is administered, while I am on the operating table, on my 4th surgery this pregnancy, and the 11th surgery of this kind since 2001, that we might be able to do this under MAC (Monitored Anesthesia Care), which apparently would make my recovery time a lot shorter. Thanks! A little too late for that.  Maybe the next surgery (I know I'll have at least one more and hopefully no more that 2 before the baby comes).
Oh, yeah and the creepy urologist was having a discussion with the other staff in the surgical room about what songs are good to "you know" to (that's how he put it). "Foreplay" was specifically mentioned. All with me laying there, wide awake, legs up in stirrups while he does the procedure (awkward much??). It is a wonder he has not been hit with a sexual harassment case... yikes!! :-O  Seriously?!? I couldn't believe it.  And, sadly, I am stuck with this guy. Valdosta has only three (THREE!) urologists. The first guy that I already switched from because he considered me a liability and a "urologist's nightmare" and was scared to do much to help me since I am pregnant (and is now offended that I "fired" him and won't give me the time of day). My doc. And a third guy who "declines" to see me (for liability reasons I am sure). Docs are so concerned about covering their behinds nowadays that they won't even help people anymore.

Another sonogram

Had another (final, yay!) appointment with the high risk perinatologist that is over two hours from home.  (Why the docs here can't handle this seemingly basic stuff I just don't know).  Anyhoo, he said everything looks good and he doesn't anticipate any problems.  Thank God!  Also, the baby was 3 lbs 2 oz... she grew a whole half pound from Thursday (four days)!?!  Wow!  Let's hope that trend slows down or I'll have an enormous baby at full-term :oD
