Then she proceeds to explain that my claims between medical and then maternity leave will just flow into one another, so basically they partial pay me until I have the baby and then pay out 6 weeks for maternity, right? Well that means that the longer I go overdue, the longer they have to pay me extra. The next thing she asked me was, "Do you have an induction scheduled?" I wanted to cuss her out because it was just so rude but I do realize that inductions can be so routine these days that she'd never think it was offensive. But I politely explained that I am not on a timeline and our baby is coming naturally whenever she comes. It was just annoying knowing that the insurance company clearly would prefer I have an induction so I'm not on their dime anymore.
that's awesome, bwahahaha!
Yeah, I don't mind if friends text or message with "how are you feeling?", "sending you good energy", or something like that--but "baby yet?" is just so annoying!! Like I'd be all, "oh yea, I had her last week, you totally missed it, it was all over my FB wall"
And yes, phonecalls before 8 are annoying in my book too. I can almost guarantee if I get a call before 9am, it's some agency/appt/secretary/clerk trying to get all the phonecalls on some list knocked out first-thing in the workday. Hell, FB notifications before 9am tend to annoy me too, LOL. I silence my phone at nite most of the time.
So I woke up really early and couldn't get back to sleep, and I had this mad desire to....finish my daughter's baby album. You know, my 9yo's baby album, which I have been half-heartedly working on since 2003! I actually finished it, and used up nearly all my scrapbooking stuff in the process! Which is great, cause halfway thru my firstborn's (HUGE, really elaborate, really costly) scrapbook (that only covers the first three months of his life!), I decided I hated scrapbooking Strange how nesting urges will manifest, ehh??
