I can tell it is a yeast infection ... I have had them before. I was just reading up on them, and I think hormones might be to blame. It is right after my AF and my skin has been crazy bad too (get acne every single time my period rolls around, but usually it goes away right after - however it is still pretty bad) and I have been super emotional :(:(almost PMS-like. Cashflow is limited right now, we are in between paychecks so I can't go buy anything. I will keep treating with probiotics and garlic...:(

Whoa! A bunch of messages!! Okay, let me see...
Sonja: yeast infections suck, I'm sorry! I use organic, plain yogurt internally as well as externally to relieve symptoms. It has worked well for me the last couple of times. I've heard garlic is amazing as well, but I haven't tried that yet.
Joanie: definitely wear the boot! Just come up with a sport or exercise related injury and leave it at that. Getting rid of the pain definitely outweighs the embarrassment, IMO.
Ash: ((hugs)) That has got to be tough to look at.
Grandparents: I lost my maternal grandmother before I was born, and all the rest pretty quickly in succession my junior year in high school. Then I inherited dh's grandmothers (his grandfathers were already deceased), lost one several years back, but still have one left. All my kids have met their great grandmother and she will be flying here for Thanksgiving. She has email and FaceBook. It's hilarious. My parents both email, but have issues texting. My mom writes texts like it's an email and signs it "love mom." Also hilarious.post #1243 of 15028/28/13 at 6:32amThread Starterpost #1244 of 15028/28/13 at 6:49am
Sorry you aren't feeling well, Sonja. Sorry for your loss, Ash.
Am I the only one who doesn't put kitchen items in my vag? Granted, I don't think I've ever had a yeast infection... (don't shoot me.)
I've had a crappy morning. But I'm used to crappy. Dh lost the keys to the van (again- this is a constant issue) so I left very late for Jasper's speech appt. Then traffic was awful and I gave up after sitting on the same road for 20 min. Took him to school, then had to go back and sit in the same traffic. No therapy for J. :( Next week his therapist won't be there. Then the lady in front of me got the last order of hashbrowns in the cafeteria. Waaa! (I'm just throwing a pit party at this point. Ignore me.) I forgot to buy coffee and I have to go sit in the most boring training of all time ever in history for the next 3 hours. It took me almost two hours to get to work; I work 14 miles from my house. I hate traffic. And irresponsibility.
Developed world problems. (I can't say first world since it is technically not the correct term!)
Looking forward to an update from Nicole. Joanie, go to the doctor!
I will now be late for training in order to find coffee.post #1245 of 15028/28/13 at 7:52amCervix still closed. No stretch and sweep but...
118/68!!! Woo! The nurse probably thought I was clinically insane with how excited I was. Haha.
130bpm. 190lbs. Zero swelling. Measuring 38w.
I started drinking Raspberry Red Leaf Tea... That's the only explanation I have for my awesomely fantastic BP.
Can you guys feel my excitement? LOL

Great about the blood pressure!!! I took garlic right to the end with Eli because my bloodpressure was high too, it was hanging around 140/90 for a while, and once I started taking garlic it dropped to 122/81. It was amazing to see the difference...
I feel your excitement! :):) I can't wait for Layla to come!!!!!!post #1247 of 15028/28/13 at 8:29ampost #1248 of 15028/28/13 at 8:34am
YAY!!! Thats great Nicole!!Quote:
Vaginal probiotics work great also. Ive used them to treat yeast infections, but also bacterial vaginosis- because the medication for that is a SUPER scary one.
B is still itchy but easily distracted. She only got a few new pox yesterday and her case is still really really mild, I imagine because she has only been weaned for 2 months. The only other person who would get them is my daughter, and she has been exposed without getting them so many times I'm not convinced she doesn't have some passive immunity. But I guess it can take up to 2 weeks so we will see. We have been around a ton of other kids but they are all vaxed. So I guess its the wait and see game.post #1249 of 15028/28/13 at 8:40ampost #1250 of 15028/28/13 at 8:44am
Yeah, she has slept through the night in her own bed for 4 nights now- which has never happened before. And today, she watched TV for the first time. Yesterday she ran a really low grade fever but was SUPER clammy and sweaty.
I did fall asleep after I posted last night but had super weird dreams all night, then woke up to an email from my brothers moms explaining the terrible pictures- she has been doing a high school tour with MADD and uses the site for references. She even has a giant picture of his messed up face while he was in a coma that she takes to show the kids. So, mixed feelings.post #1251 of 15028/28/13 at 8:46am
I think I'm one of those freakish people were EVERY SINGLE one of my grandparents is still alive. I mean, even most of my step-grandparents are alive, only one has passed so far. My dad's mom started having kids at 14yo and then had 6 kids by 24yo. That did give her an age boost, as she's only 24 years older than my dad. My paternal grandfather is 95 and still living alone (although now he has a person that comes to help him), my paternal grandmother is 86 and now lives in an assisted living. My maternal grandparents are still married, living on their own and in their mid 80's. Most of my great-grandparents died in their mid 90's.
My mom is 57, she uses technology, texts, Facebooks, etc. My dad can send an email and just got a smart phone, he doesn't text though. My mom's dad can email, navigate a computer and use a cellphone (he has an extremely high IQ, so learning the computer wasn't an issue for him), that's about it. My dad's parents don't use any technology that I'm aware of. There are a lot of people that I wish would at least get on Facebook and look at photos and such. It's a pain to remember to send them in an email or worse yet, print and mail them! Ha ha. There is an app that I started using recently that allows you to upload a picture and a short message and then the company sends it on a postcard in the mail. It only cost $0.99 each, and those non-techy people can get a picture. ;)
I live in a super ghetto-like town now and it's really common for girls to be grandparents in their early 30's. I met a pregnant girl at the park a few weeks ago. She asked me how hold I was, I told her 32.. she gasp and said, "wow, you're like the same age as my mom"! oO She was pregnant with her second kid at 16yo.
Nicole, great news about the blood pressure!
I've also used garlic for yeast infections. Oh, and boric acid also works well. If you put some powder in a gel cap and insert it, it works as well as 24 hour otc treatments.
Amanda, sorry your morning sucked!post #1252 of 15028/28/13 at 8:55ampost #1253 of 15028/28/13 at 8:55amThread Starterpost #1254 of 15028/28/13 at 9:00amAsh, that must be so hard. I can't even imagine. Abra, that is both funny and sad how the pregnant girl reacted to your age! I knew girls who were pregnant in high school, but it wasn't common to see grandparents in their 30's, that's for sure. I grew up in a mainly middle class town, though. DH, on the other hand, went as a Navy kid from super upper class high school in Highland Park, IL (the school in Ferris Bueller's Day Off) to spending the second half of his high school career out in Hampton, VA where he was the minority white kid and there was a separate school for pregnant teens - there were THAT MANY. His sister didn't escape it herself. She was pregnant with her first at 16. She had her third this year at.... 24 years old I want to say? But wow, the idea of SIX by 24 years old?! *faints*post #1255 of 15028/28/13 at 9:03amI'm inclined by experience to say its more than 80% effective short-term- but you know, I'm not the CDC or anything. My observation based solely on things I've personally seen as a hospital worker, is that it's nearly always effective for the first few years after its given but its effectiveness dramatically decreases after 3-5 years depending on the kid. The need for boosters is something they have found in the last 6 years. But overall the chicken pox vax is pretty new.post #1256 of 15028/28/13 at 9:04ampost #1257 of 15028/28/13 at 9:09amQuote:
That's not what I like to hear! I guess there's never really a GOOD time to get chicken pox, but my daughter has her Taylor Swift concert in 3 days, first day of school in 7 days, and we are supposed to go on vacation in 10 days. That's a lot of things to miss.post #1258 of 15028/28/13 at 9:13amThread Starter
Nicole, yay for your blood pressure!! Now you don't have to worry so much, which will in itself help! Glad the tea seems to be helping.
Abra, yikes about the girl at the park! I didn't grow up in an area that had much teen pregnancy so being a grandparent by 30 is shocking to me, too.
Sara, something glitched on my computer and while the carrot and broccoli in your siggy are still dancing away, the two bananas stopped like deer in headlights. It's cracking me up right now.post #1259 of 15028/28/13 at 9:14amThread StarterQuote:
Yeah, that would SUCK. I hope that if she's going to get it, it waits until after all that is over. It can take weeks to incubate, right?post #1260 of 15028/28/13 at 9:14am
I'm in Blythe, on the CA/AZ boarder. It's a small town, in the middle of the desert, far from everything. There is a lot of hispanic multi-gen poverty here.
Yeah, I can't imagine having six kids at 24 either. She had one at 14, then starting at 19yo had a baby every year until 24. Most of the kids are 12 months apart. Being pregnant for 5 years straight?? Yikes!
Apparently I look A LOT better than this 16yo girl's mom. She thought I was a lot younger, but asked because I have a 9yo. My mom (who happens to know the girl) said that by the time this girls family is in their 30's that they look pretty haggard. ;/
Ash, I hope your dd doesn't get it until after all the fun exciting stuff!
