my midwife is useless and disrespectful. I'm looking for a new provider and don't wish to interact with her at all- even though I'm pretty sure I have a yeast infection. Sad

I went to the ER with a severe UTI that was causing me bad back pain and making me contract. He gave me a medicine that is noted in my chart that I can't have an insisted that it's the only thing I can take given my drug allergies and being pregnant. So now I'm stuck taking this drug while worrying about the negative side effects. Sad

I'm sick of being attacked for my choice to vba3c. All of the stress, attacks, and bullying (by family, OB's and medical staff) is what made me lose my strength in my battle for my vbac and vba2c. I wish people would just leave me alone and stop insisting that there is something wrong with my body!

DH still won't discuss names. Sad

ETA: I have more actually.

We're supposed to be moving. We're moving into a trailer park (only option for the time being) and one of the owners is not thrilled about the terms of the sale of the trailer so he's saying that we won't be able to live in his park. We'll find out what the other owner says tomorrow but we might be stuck here b/c we really can't move anywhere else.

I wish my insurance company hadn't taken so freaking long to send us our insurance cards! Xander needs a nebulizer (hopefully just for now) and I couldn't afford to pay out of pocket for it so we've been waiting and waiting and waiting.

It sounds like you're going through a really stressful time. I hope things start getting better for you asap!! (((((((HUGS))))))))

YIKES!!! I hope this is getting better! Take some time to rest and relax.....and I hope you find a better midwife!

Sad Sorry to hear this! Sounds awful!!

My vents (at the moment - I have multiple every hour!):
1) NIPPLES!!!!! OMG they are killing me!

2) My boss/co-workers. Seriously, I wish I could work from home part time. My DH HATES my boss, and has zero respect for my co-workers. I'm seriously the only woman here, so as sexist as it is, I'm treated like everyone's personal assistant and maide - it's my job to wash all their coffee cups and dirty dishes because if I don't, they leave them until the dishes are green and moldy and the smell makes me nauseous. and If I don't wash them the guys here actually come to my desk and complain that there's nothing clean! My boss really has no idea what goes on here or how to manage it. he really has no idea about our business, but he knows how to play the corporate game and takes credit for everything that we do.

And my co-workers......well, last week they were nice enough to tell me I looked like sh!t, after I had spent 30 minutes in the bathroom throwing up. I've worked with a few of them for going on 5 years now, so we have a pretty good relationship, but still.....after the fun of throwing up at work, does anyone really want to be told they look like crap?!?

Jo that sounds awful!!

Yeah, my life is pretty stressful.

The guy at the trailer park was less that stellar today too. My friend is calling the other owner tomorrow (it's her trailer we're buying) to see if he has anything better to say.

I have an appointment with another mw so hopefully that stress is eliminated. Ed has been seeming more and more comfortable with the idea of a home birth so perhaps I won't even have to worry about it at all.

I have an appt tomorrow with my family dr so I intend to resolve the yeast infection problem with her instead of calling the mw I don't like.

Xander has his nebulizer now so that's all taken care of Smile

Jo, wow, I'm sorry you have to put up with that cr@p! Hopefully they'll realize how much you do for them around there and miss and appreciate you like crazy while you're on maternity leave!

Danielle, sounds like things are falling into place. I hope it's smooth sailing from here on out!

Danielle, how are things going? I hope everything's gotten straightened out!!

So yesterday was exhausting.....I came home from work so drained I collapsed on the couch and didn't have the energy to move until it was time to go meet my in-laws for dinner (fun fun!!)

So.....I was sitting with my MIL, and she asks how I'm doing. I told her I'm still so exhausted I can hardly get through some days, but that one of the reasons I haven't been sleeping is my hands, and now that we found out it's carpal tunnel, I have to sleep with splints on both wrists. So, she cuts over me and says 'yah, well, my FIL (who has M.S.) has to sleep with leg braces and he has muscle spasms at night so it means she gets kicked and has bruises on her legs from his braces.'
.....So then she asked about my step dad, who this Spring was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease (and in the 4 months since we told her about this, last night was the first time she's ever asked about him) So, I told her that they're thinking he's had the disease for longer and is far more progressed than what they first thought.....And so she cuts over me again and says 'well a man in their church was diagnosed with ALS, and unfortunately passed away within 2 weeks of the diagnosis.'
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I seriously HATE that everything has to be a competition with her! I can honestly see her for an entire afternoon and not be able to get out more than 5 sentences because she ALWAYS has to 'one-up' what I'm saying!

And I was in meetings almost all day yesterday at work, and I have a new boss......again! This is the FIFTH boss in 25 months! Unfortunately my previous boss who's the pretentious douche-bag is still in our office and will always continue to treat me like his personal assistant.

My mother in law drives me nuts too Jo, especially when I'm pregnant. Some of the things she says just make me wonder what in the world is wrong with her! I'm sorry she feels the need to one up you, especially about your stepdad. That is just rude and disrespectful. It's like she only asked so she could 'brag' to you that a man from her church died from ALS after 2 weeks. Wtf???? I don't understand people like that at all! How can she even think that that is what you need to hear right now ?

Jo, WTH?! Wow....your MIL sounds like a piece or work. Why in the heck would someone feel the need to one up an illness?! That's just crazy to me. She obviously has issues. I'm really sorry to hear about your step father. ((HUGS))
