OOOH I feel like I have a lot to catch up on! I'll try my best.
Tess- I'm so sorry for what you are going through. I have absolutely no advice for you but I send you a big virtual HUG!
Kamaile- You asked about progesterone stuff...I am still on supposetories at 3x per day. Each one is 100mg. I set my alarm and do it every 8 hrs.
purplefish- Wow what a time for your Dr to bring that up! UGH.... I'm sorry you won't be able to try for a VBAC but we'll all do what ever is best for our babies right?!
I loved your pictures! Your family is beautiful and that campground spot looked absolutely perfect! I loved the waterfall and cabin! How fun!!!!!!!!! That's my kind of camping!!!
Kiz- I'm glad AF showed up finally and you are on the road to a BFP cycle!
I can't believe you were sick for so long on the flight! OMG you poor thing! I had a lady that had food poisoning for 7 hrs one time. We have a huge medicine kit on the flight that can only be opened by a licensed Dr or nurse or paramedic. If there is non we can radio call a Dr and get permission to administer things to make you stop puking. But yes, I agree, if you get that sick while flying....best not to do it if you are pregnant.
Although...I do love a good wedding.
Rio- I'm glad you had a good experience on Continental! I only work the overseas routes so maybe me or one of my friends was on your flight!
How do I feel about the merger....mostly scared. They are a MUCH bigger company. We are super worried about how they will merge the two seniority lists for the FAs and pilots. Seniority is everything in my job. It determines where you fly, if you fly and what days you get off. It even determines if you have a job if they have too many after the merger there could be layoffs.
I really hope that does not happen because if me and DH lose our jobs we would be beyond screwed...and not in a fun way!
I also worry because my airline used to be horrible with customer service and they have really worked hard to turn it around. Now United is full of ticked off and disgruntled people. When we merge I really hope we can bring some of our happiness and enthusiasm to the table. I mean who wants to work/fly with ticked of b*tches for 8-12 hrs a day???? Not me and NOT our passengers. So yes...lots of worries there. But from what we hear, nothing will happen for a couple of years so for now I am just along for the ride.
As for your decision...if they can't tweek anything to make you a better responder or change up anything because it's a clinical trial, I am not sure if I would do it. We all want the best shot possible and I think that may be achieved better with a proven clinic/Dr. Someone who can tailor everything to you. Just my opinion.
I want what's best for you and would support any decision that is best for you and your family!
Lisa- I'm so glad everything is ok. Bleeding is so scary no matter how much or little it is. EEK!
AFM- I had my first OB apt last Friday. I just met with the nurse to go over paperwork for 1 1/2 hrs. WOW!
They have classified me as high risk which makes me happy. I will get monthly u/s until 30wks. Then every 2 weeks until 35weeks then weekly. So that makes me feel better I guess. I was a bit annoyed that when I was meeting with the nurse she did not have ANY of my paperwork from by RE. I know they sent it over because I had just talked to the RE about 1 hr before the OB visit. It made me a little hesitant to trust this new OB office I have never been to. The RE had said that my estrogen and progesterone levels were fine for this point in my pregnancy but low so they wanted me to stay on the meds and have my OB follow up. Well if they have no paperwork they can't follow up easily. I called them on Monday after I got back from work and they found my paperwork. But...in a nutshell they are confused as to why I am on estrogen. They said they usually do not recheck levels and just go with whatever the RE says. Well, RE said to have them recheck. ARGH. I just want to make sure my baby is ok. I have this totally irrational fear that I'll miscarry. I have no clue why I think that since it has never happened to me. I mean heck, I have never been able to get pregnant. I just have a hard time believing that I can really be this lucky. I really just want another scan. This is horrible. UGH...do you think we'll all feel better when we can feel the baby/babies moving every day? They are calling my RE to find out more info. They didn't even have my 6 week u/s showing that I did have a viable pregnancy. Maybe when the OB office calls back I can beg for a quick peek???
I went back to work on Saturday for the first time since my bleeding incident almost 3 weeks ago. Everything went fine and there was no problems. I have 4 more flights this month. 3 in a row starting this Thursday. UGH...tired. My week looks like this: Newark-London-Newark-Amsterdam-Newark-Birmingham, UK-Newark then off for 4 days. AHHHH...good for me DH is with me for London and Amsterdam. That will be nice.
That's all the updates for me. Now just watching the construction in my back yard. We are building a deck and installing a paver patio. The deck is almost done. They are working on the patio right now. They excavated the dirt for the patio yesterday and within 4 hrs I caught one of the neighbors from a few blocks away stealing my dirt. They will be using the excavated dirt to backfill and fix my yard that they have torn up. I ran outside and was like..."UM Excuse me? Could you please not steal my dirt???" He said Oh I thought it was for anyone...really with a huge dump truck parked in my backyard and they are clearly doing landscaping work??? Not likely...please leave my dirt alone until they are done with it! Trashy!
Well that's my novel for today! Sorry it's so long...I feel like I miss so much when I fly. I hope all of you wonderful ladies have a great day!
