Not at the same time of course
I had all my waxing done for Hawaii last night. I asked the esthetician to go a little trimmer than usual. She mumbled something I didn't understand so I just agreed with her. Apparently she asked if I wanted a Brazilian
I get waxed all the time and yes, it hurts much more in pregnancy but I never do Brazilian and had to ask her to stop. It was awful! She was giggling the entire time (sounds bad but it was making me feel better). So needless to say I had ahalf a Brazilian done LOL
She was also looking at my stomach and asked if I knew what I was having. I said no and she said I was having a girl. She was looking at the line of hair on my stomach (where the hair of different directions come together). It was not straight so I guess in Vietnam, that means girl.
She was looking at it and then all of a sudden puts the wax on my belly and yanks the hair out. I have a hair free belly now (which for the record hurts way less then down by the VG)
All is good. I am up 5 pounds, baby's HB was in the 150's lowest it has been. I got my recquision of the GD test and mid pg bloodwork.
I discussed my mood and concerns about developing PPD again (I had quite a bad case with DD and only stopped my antidepressants just before I concieved). She is sending me to my psychologist prior to babe being born to get a jump start on things, she will stay in contact with DH about how he feels I am doing and if need be, will put me back on antidepressants before I deliver. She thinks I have about a 50% chance of developing it again.
Otherwise great appointment!
Glad you're appt. went well. It will be interesting to see if the technician was right about you having a girl.

Sounds like both appointment were at least successful!
Good to hear that your doc is being so proactive about the PPD. having a plan in place will make things much easier if you do end up developing it again.
When do you leave for Hawaii?
that waxing sounds HORRIBLE!!!!! So does your half brazillian at least look decent? LOL I can imagine it looking incomplete but you not caring.
Glad your OB appointment went well at least

Cracking up at the waxing story- the lady sounds fun! It will be interesting to see if she is right about having a girl.
I love your doctor already for being proactive and having a plan. PPD sucks, and I'm so glad she's on your side and taking it all seriously! Awesome to have a health care provider like that on your side.
Erin I am sorry but I am cracking up after reading the waxing story! I really needed that laugh today! I hope that you enjoy your Maui trip and have lots of pics to share when you get back!
I must also say that it is great that your OB is being so proactive about your PPD!
I have to say the waxing story was funny...I have always thought about doing that but have chickened out, I just usually trim myself cause I'm to chicken to let someone else do it. I get my eyebrows done and I know how that hurts so I'm scared to do the other. Have fun in Maui that has to-be just great knowing ur gonna get away.
