I'll join in...
@Dandy Lion I feel your pain, literally. Heartburn since 17-18 weeks here. I don't like to take anything but I was so miserable and NOTHING was working!! Finally my OB told me that it really was okay to take Pepcid AC twice a day. She almost insisted, since my husband was there and he could relate my misery to her. I relented, and it really has made a huge difference. I take the lowest dose available OTC (10 mg I think) right before lunch and again before dinner.
@SynEpona Ugh!! I am having such a time with this. I have a feeling I'm gonna hijack this thread, lol. DS will be almost 3, and we are planning a hospital birth. My MIL, who originally agreed to come take care of him, lives 6+ hours away. So I have asked friends/neighbors if they will watch him if we have to head to the hospital before MIL can get here. Last week, MIL mentions to DH that FIL really wants to come too and since his job isn't as flexible they may not be able to get here as quickly. AND they want to bring their RV (different issue altogether), which would increase their drive time by quite a bit. I really want to say to her that if she can't be here when we need her, then please let us know now so we can make other arrangements, and they can just come visit a week or two later. On the other hand, if she can get here in time, I know that she thinks she'll be able to be at the hospital when this baby is born (I didn't allow them to come visit until a week after DS was born). I don't want her at the hospital. I want her at my home taking care of DS. But I can't say this to her because she is very sensitive and takes everything very personally.
Whine, whine, whine. I think I should get some nice baby swiss to go with my whine...(mmmmm, cheese!!)
