Just got off the phone with my insurance company and breast pump purchase or rental is fully covered if I go through one of their three suppliers. I got their phone numbers and was able to find two of the three online, but their websites don't show what breast pumps they have so I'll have to call. I hope I can get an Ameda again, but if not, I'll see what they have. Lactation consultants are also covered, but I can't tell exactly how much as their website isn't updated. Not as worried about that though right now.Other thing I need to do is schedule a maternity tour of the other hospital I might birth at, I really want to go back where I was last time, but it may not work out with my OB if I go on the weekend again.
Went on probably my last work trip yesterday, it was a pretty easy 3 hour drive there, site visit with some of my favorite folks with our client and 3 hours back. We even had a pretty good lunch, it was a sandwich with fries & cole slaw on it, mmm. Not a very healthful choice, but it hit the spot
My parents are visiting next weekend for Christmas/DH&Mom's Birthday so that will be nice. Have to clean some this weekend, but we've been better about keeping up with clutter, so it should go pretty quick.
BaileyB, thanks, we were so excited to get a good deal! It's weird how age can hit you all of a sudden, but 26 sounds young to me at 33
Not that 33 is old at all, my parents still don't seem old to me and they are 60 & 61 now. How did you BHs turn out? I've been fine so far with drinking water and slowing down or sometimes laying down to get rid of them. Staying hydrated is much harder this time, so when I make a better effort on that I seem to avoid the BHs completely. Glad your DD is feeling better, that Kale smoothie sounds yummy, I think I'm going to be making a lot of smoothies later on when my stomach is too crowded.
Trisha, mmm chicken broth, I am such a soup lover anyway, but even moreso right now! I hope everyone is feeling better. The washer sounds cool!
CoBaby, too funny, sounds like me and DH. He wanted to put bookshelves in the kids' playroom, I'm thinking for the kids' books obviously, but no he's thinking about all his D&D and other role playing books. I brought up that he really doesn't want those in the kids playroom getting potentially ripped up. I told him we should get a tall bookshelf for our room (we have a 2 shelf short one) and add his books to that and then move the small shelf to the basement. But he doesn't like where that shelf is in our room now, so who knows! It cracks me up how our brains work so differently sometimes. Sorry about the frozen pipes!
FarmerMomma, sorry about your dog getting into your chickens
Glad your midwife appointment went well! Sorry for the frozen pipes too, haven't had that here, but it has certainly been cold :brr
