    I called again. The lady tried to tell me someone would call me back. I told her that this was my 4th phone call, with no call back, and that I would hold until someone could help me. She put me on hold, to go talk to the Dr.

    She came back on the line and told me that Dr. Gunsberg is conferring with another Dr. on Pia's results, and that's what is taking so long. She promised that she (the Dr.) would call me back this afternoon.

    I'm freaking out. I can't stop crying.

    Unfortunately I don't have much to update.

    I did finally talk to a nurse on Wed afternoon. She told me that the ped wanted to do an ultrasound and repeat the bloodwork. She said she would call me back with the info.

    She never called.

    Later that night, around 9, the ped called. I missed the damn phone call. I didn't figure she'd call that late. So, I had her paged and she again didn't call back. I waited patiently yesterday, no phone call. I called the office this AM, only to be told that they are closed today, for moving. They refused to page my ped, because she's not on call.

    This is beyond ridiculous.

    I haven't left the stupid house all week. Abel and I are on eachothers nerves because of stress. I can't sleep and I'm totally on edge.

    I'm trying to stay positive, thinking that it's not life-threatening or else she'd be in the hospital. She's very healthy, and not at all jaundice. It's still very, very hard.

    I honestly don't understand how this ped is still in practice. It's been a WEEK since I initially called. I have yet to talk to her.

    I called again this AM, and held for 17 minutes, only to get the nurse ONCE AGAIN. She told me that the ped had tried to call me this weekend, and couldn't get ahold of me. I'm going to have to call bull**** on that one. I had the stupid phone with me all weekend, and no missed calls.

    So, once again, waiting on a phone call that will likely not happen.

    I'm thinking about reporting her to the medical board. This shouldn't be allowed to happen.

    Well she never called back yesterday, so at 4:45, I called again. I held for 31 minutes before she got on the phone.

    She told me that the results were abnormal. We go for an ultrasound tonight, 5:30 to see what's up.

    Before I could ask her what abnormal was, and what the implications are, she put me on hold and sent the nurse to finish up. I talked to her for maybe 5 minutes.

    I did get the name of the hemotologist she was talking to, so I'll probably call him for help. I am reporting her to the medical board and getting a copy of her chart after the us report comes in.

    This is a nightmare.

    Ultrasound went well. She was a very good girl. Of course we don't know anything yet.

    I made an appt for a second opinion - next Tuesday at 2:30.

    I'm ready for this to be over.

    Is NORMAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So relieved.

    We go to a new Ped on Tuesday for a 2nd opinion, and we'll let him do the repeat for the bloodwork. So, we're still not sure what's going on, but at least all her bits and pieces look good.

    I have to vent about this. It's something that absolutely drives me insane.

    Why on earth do mothers feel the need to judge other mothers?

    I think that we should be lifting each other up, celebrating our accomplishments, learning from one another.

    Instead, so many put others down for not doing things the way they do. It's not fair, it's rude and just plain ignorant.

    I don't care what you do at home with your children. FF or BF, your baby is getting fed. Circ or no circ - doesn't bother me, not my penis! Spanking no spanking - good for you! CIO or not - whatever gets your LO to sleep for you. SAH, WOH - whatever makes you happy.

    Outside of actual abuse, we should all mind our own business. We are all in the most amazing club - we're mothers. We brought life into this world. It's like the ultimate reason to bond together.

    I do think it's human nature to judge others. But, can we please draw the line at motherhood?

    I hate, hate, hate the terrible twos.

    Seriously.

    I love my daughter beyond reason, but she's slowly driving me INSANE.

    People keep telling me she's bored - like I'm not good enough to stimulate her. That irritates me.

    I've looked into a storytime program at our local library - they don't have one.

    I'm in Texas, so it's hotter than hell out right now, and I'm not too keen on taking my 3 month old outside in it.

    Here is my morning, so far:

    9:00 - wake up, right away throws major fit that her diaper is full. Full on screaming, kicking the ground before I can even say good morning.

    9:05 - while changing diaper, demands juice and food.

    10:00 - I make her the toast she has requested. She eats one piece, tells me the other is nasty and demands more. I refuse, major fit. I take her to time out.

    10:15 - finally stops throwing her fit. Throws 2nd piece of toast at me. I put her back in time out.

    10:30 - playing with her toys, throws a fit because something is stuck - won't let me help her so continues with fit.

    All in an hour and a half. This is my life, all day every day. She doesn't act like this with anyone else. I hate this. Makes me feel like I'm an awful mother.

    Why is it that I couldn't wait for Arianna to start talking? Now, I'd give almost anything if she would be quiet for an hour. You really can't appreciate silence until you have a toddler.

    She is such a struggle for me. I think it's because we are so much alike. Some days it's so incredibly hard to be her mother. She's so smart, funny, sweet and kind - but that's usually not the side I see. I know she loves me, but every once in a while, I'd like to feel like I've done something right by her.

    You don't truly experience love, guilt, frustration, hurt and anger until you've had a child.

    Here's my funny lunch story from today.

    Arianna wouldn't tell me what she wanted for lunch, so I heated up a slice of pizza. I told her if she ate it all, she could have chips.

    Like 2 minutes later, she comes in and tells me it's bah - chips please.

    I go in the kitchen to find that she's stuffed her piece back in the box and put her empty plate on the counter.

    She's only 2 1/2.
