So Much To Do, So Little Time
Well it has been a few days since I was last here. I ended up with almost an entire week off (go me!) and unfortunately my computer at home is not working so yea. I had to wait until I came back to work to write. I only have a couple of updates. First is, I reapplied for OHP and I believe we qualify this time! YAY for that! Its funny to me how they can deny me for being $100 over on income one month and then approve me the next for barely being under. Oh well as long as I have some insurance! The second is, I went and saw a specialist on Monday. He is going to perform what they call a circlage. This is where they stitch your cervix to try and prevent it from dialating. Or at least too much. They are going to do the procedure the Monday after Thanksgiving. I will be out of work for just a few days and then should be able to return to normal schedule. The specialist said there is a 95% success rate with this procedure, which I think are pretty good odds considering what it would be without it. It is also something that can be left in if we are planning on having more kids.......after this round of morning sickness its really hard for me to commit to more than one. Not that its completely out of the question but seriously! I am convinced that they have one of those zappers (like on men in black) that makes women forget everything after they have the baby. After all the uncomfortable, sick, emotional days I truely don't know why we get pregnant again. Its like causing a kidney stone on purpose. Not really smart if you ask me;) My husband is really starting to get excited about the baby, which makes me smile! He talks about it every day. He has been a lot more patience with the morning sickness too. I have managed to make it out of the house a few times. I was completely exausted by the time I got home but I had a good time. Well, there is not much left to report for now. We are praying that we only have one more month of sickness and fatigue and then we can get back to (somewhat) normal. All I know is that I am eating Thanksgiving dinner no matter what this silly baby says! Love you all! Have a great week!
