Do any of you watch Parenthood or Modern Family? 2 best shows on TV in my opinion.....I am laughing/crying through both!

It feels like it's been a while since I've been on here...even though it's only been a few days! It feels like Saturday today because the kids are out of school for "fall break"...but they are already fighting and yelling at each other. UGH! I just wish they would be happy!
It has started to cool down here. I think it might have froze last night--good thing we covered our pumpkins in the garden! Hoping they turn orange soon so we can decorate!
Do you know how they'd test for hyperthyroidism? All I know is that thyroid stuff can be a real challenge, but hopefully you can get some answers soon. Will you have a GD tolerance test soon? Mine is Tuesday.
Yes, I have my glucola test tomorrow morning. When I go in and get my LabCorps paperwork, they're marking for me to have a tube drawn to test for thyroid problems, my glucose levels, and my hemoglobin level. I have no doubt in my mind that my iron is low, it usually is when I suspect it. I've dealt with chronic anemia for so long I know what to look for and can tell.
They're doing my test a few weeks early but I don't know how long it takes to get results? I've never failed it before so it never made a difference. I never worried about failing it either.
It isn't as bad as some of the stuff ya'll deal with, that's for sure! My normal midwife and my PCP are aware and they know I can tell so when I call and ask for my levels checked, they get me in pretty quick. I'm usually accurate and if I'm not, it's a different vitamin level I'm low on.
I ran out of prenatals the other day! Jason doesn't get paid until tomorrow so I have to wait and get them then. What kind do all of you take? When I say prenatals, I mean Flintstones. Seriously. I take 2 of them and then extra supplements because my weak stomach can't handle normal ones. But now I'm farther along and it shouldn't be as bad. Any suggestions?
Hey ladies, So i finally cut my abusive mother out of my life yesterday and today she called to tell me if i didn't stop "lying" about being abused she would take me to court for defamation of character. she is going insane ( for the millionth time) about me not wanting her controlling, vindictive, manipulating self in my life. please pray for us, our family needs the prayer. we cut her out so that we could escape this drama and now its only creating more! i'm so tired, why cant she simply leave me alone?
Lesli - I haven't watched the last couple of seasons of either show but I LOVE them both! Modern Family is such food for the soul and Parenthood is just phenomenal. I need to catch up!
Lisa - I'm sorry the kids are at each other's throats that has to be so draining.
Taylor - I took two flinstones all throughout DD's pregnancy and early in this one until i was able to get down larger pills (which I have to take for ICP) thanks to carbonated drinks. I just take generic prenatals from CVS. As long as I eat before I take them, they don't bother my stomach.
Mariah - I'm sorry you have to go through that, but a lot of abusers just don't see it the same way (or deny it as a way to say "I'm fine I don't need help you do"). I'd just keep record of things (e-mails, texts etc) and ignore it. If you have to, change your number and file a restraining order. Not that anyone ever wants to have to do that, but if she can't respect your wishes then what else can you do? Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, I can't imagine how difficult that decision was, let alone the stress of the threats.
I am starting to think DD's sleep issues lately are still her teething. I swear it can take her a month to cut a molar and she's been awful without ibprofen or tylenol most nights/naps. She's also asking for different food every half an hour no matter what she has. So hoping this passes. Been having a ton of pressure and BH ctx tonight but I'm keeping my faith in my negative Ffn test last week. Thankfully DH will be home in an hour or so and can help with DD and the ctx are slowing down when I get a chance to sit down so I'm not too worried.
Sooo sorry Mariah about you mom! Its better shes out of your life this way you can bring your baby into a positive setting !
Mia - awww are you planning to take your LO to the dentist maybe they can give her somehhing stronger!
AFM- my body is achy!!! Oh my lord especially after work ! Its like im being kicked in the back constantly! I love being pregnant but im starting to get the aches and pains
Mariah - it would be very difficult for her to win any court battle along those lines... and hard for her to find a lawyer to represent her. Your mommy instincts will get even stronger to protect your child once he is born. She has no rights to be anywhere near your baby or you, if you do not wish her to be.
Taylor - I take Flinstones for my supplement as well, and some plant derived DHA. And some vitamin D. And I need to start taking some magnesium to see if it will help with the leg cramps.
Lisa - hope it gets better with the kids. As a mom of 1 (not intentionally) we have never had to deal with that. Today DH stayed behind at preschool to observe Luke. He was building a puzzle with his friend when his friend did something he did not like - he went straight to the teacher. Such a tattle tale! Of course, his friend usually just retaliates doing something he shouldn't like hitting or whatever. But they are only 3. So funny. I am not sure how I feel about my son being a whiny tattler.
Mia - I am sorry you are dealing with sleeping issues. My son has been climbing into bed with us late at night and now that I am huge, there is just no room for all of us. He has a super comfy twin bed, so I move in there... but then he follows. DRIVES ME NUTS!!! Tonight he is sleeping over at grandma and grandpa's... so hopefully will get some sleep, but my back and belly are hurting around the clock already.
