Hi ladies! How's everyone doing today? Hopefully the nasty storms have missed everyone and your homes are still intact. It's been rainy & windy here but haven't had any major damage. My poor yard is one soggy mess though! DH is starting to get pissed because he can't get the landscaping done. Getting the landscaping done for the year is his main goal, then finishing the nursery & then onto the bathroom. He's starting to get stressed. He's a great carpenter though so I know he'll get it all done & it will be perfect! Speaking of stress... I'm really stressing about finances. I never realised how much daycare cost. We will be paying the same amount in daycare a month as we do for our house payment! Holy crap! We have him signed up at a daycare here in town, just down the road from us but we are thinking an in home daycare would be better and cheaper so we are looking into that as well. The one thing I hate about this daycare is that I have to pay whether he is there or not. That sucks. I have every other Tuesday off and plan to keep him at home w/me and have mommy/son time and still have to pay for him to be at daycare. I know they have to do it that way but... most in home daycare's don't do that. So far everyone I know of that babysits is full so I'm on a list that goes out to everyone in the town that is registered. Ack. Hopefully someone good comes up. I'm absolutely terrified at going back to work and leaving him w/strangers.
Had my 27week apt today. Baby is doing great. H/B was great. My belly is measuring at a perfect size they say... even though they didn't actually measure it? Weird. I took my glucose test but wont hear back if we passed or not for a few days. That liquid is gross. We start going every 2 weeks now. I'll have another u/s at 31 weeks. So exciting! I can't believe how fast this has gone by. I've gained a total of 17lbs so far! Right on track according to the books. Seems a bit high to me though. Oh well I'd rather gain too much than not enough.
I bought a nursing cover yesterday at a maternity store here in town. It was 20% off so I couldn't pass it up. DH is kind of being an ass about breastfeeding. He thinks it's weird that I will just start breastfeeding if we are somewhere and thinks I should pump. I do plan to pump, actually I wont have a choice once I go back to work but I do plan to breastfeed the majority of time while I'm at home. I'm going to take a breastfeeding class but right now I'm so nervous about it. I have so many questions and concerns. For those of you that did pump, what kind of pump did you use? Did you buy or rent? What kind of bottles did you use? I'm starting to freak a little.
Update on my work friend- her HSG came back great. No blockage. Her IUI was canceled Saturday. Yeah canceled. She is going to a GYNO here in town (moron) who thinks he is an IF doctor. He put her on clomid and had her come in Saturday- CD14 for an u/s, her IUI and THEN GIVE HER HCG? WTF... HCG after the IUI? What a dumb ass. I'm smarter than him. Anywho... so her follies were only at 15mm so he told her to come back next month and they'd up her clomid dose and try again. HELLO! I've never O'd on CD14 w/or w/out meds. He should have had her come back in a few days for another u/s not just cancel her. I'm trying to remain grounded and offer her the best advice I can w/out upsetting her but really... I wish she would see an RE instead of wasting her time w/this quack. She wont be able to get on our ins at work until Nov so hopefully then once IF is covered for her she will move on to someone who knows what they are doing. Poor girl. Her hubby is in the military and wont even been home next month or all summer for that matter so now she's pushed back until Aug or so. GRRR.
So I've blabbed enough & this got really long. Sorry! Hope you are all doing well. Love you girls & praying for you daily!
