It's been a while since I logged in, but I wanted to make you post the first one I responded to for a reason. You really are a flower now, with life growing inside and making the world a better place.
I have only one child (long story I won't repeat now), but she is the brightest and the best person in the world (OK, so I'm a typical mom on that one). There is such love between a mother and a child. **I'm sorry fellows.....I don't mean to take away from the father/child bond, but the mother and father have different roles in a child's life...both equally important in my opinion, but diffferent.**
If I'm not mistaken, this will be your first child flower????? If so, then you are in for a big surprise. Momto8 gives so much great advice. I had so little money when my daughter was born that I got almost every one of her clothes second hand and everything for her second hand (except the essentials). I would recommend doing some research on pediatricians in your area to see who is available on your insurance. This may seem insane before the baby is born, but it's a great way to spend some of that pent up energy time when you are too big to do anything else. I was on bed-rest the whole time, but I wasn't really into the computer as much then and we only had a desktop in the den, so it didn't help me as much.
The reason for selecting a Dr for the baby soon is that you never know what you will need after birth. You can go have a meeting with him/her before birth and discuss what their beliefs are on things like antibiotics and shots. I'm a BIG believer in the shots, but I know many who are not. I've seen some people who didn't get them and got the diseases instead, so I'm just biased I guess. You want your baby's Dr to know you too because they can (and will) be a big part of your life for the first year (especially for a first time mother). It's a learning process.
Ok, so on to your thread:
Thinks are OK here. I had a new gyn apt this week and have to be checked for uterine and ovarian cancer with some special tests soon. I think it's just a precaution, but not so grand of an idea :( Also, the RFA FINALLY kicked in and I'm getting "some" limited relief from that. I'm going to wait for the 6-9 months for that to wear off before really testing the SCS unit because I don't honestly believe I could evaluation pain reduction when my nerves are "dead". The dr's don't seem to mind, but I do. I don't want it if it is not going to do its job.
My feet are insane with pain! I have another apt with the Ped Dr this week and we are going to look in to so additional braces. My hands are the same way, so I don't see how we are going to "fix" anything.
My insurance carrier called last week and WANTS me to go to Mayo! I told them I would love to go and that I had tried to get in, but they denied me in FL and I can't get to the other states. They are going to have their medical director call Mayo at the FL campus and see what can be done to get me in. It would be such a blessing to go!
Everything else is still relatively the same, so I won't droll on & on about it. I keep reading about all of you guys, but when my old friend depression starts in, I don't post like I used to. Please forgive me that. It's part of my life now and something I have to deal with.
Have a wonderful week everyone and thank you flower for starting this thread.
