19 weeks this week. On the agenda, scheduling a Dr's appointment for me and a couple kids, hoping I can get the GP I want to see who does back up for homebirths, and that he will be at least, cooperative. Proof of pregnancy for me, establishing our PCP for #3
child who has spina bifida, and checking iron levels for #7
child who has toenails that are spooning. Feeling a little more movement from time to time and starting to look pregnant. Breasts are gaining weight, joints are loosening, pelvic throbbing (I can really feel the increased circulation!) My sister is coming to visit with her family, at the end of September, which gives me something else to look forward to; I haven't gotten to see her in over a year. Tennessee is just too far from California.
The LLL meeting I tried to go to last week? Didn't meet- I got to the meeting and the receptionist at the building told me they were taking a few months off and not meeting. I said oh, I checked the website for the current meeting information, I guess I should have called the leader. Called the leader when I got home, explaining that I'd gone to a meeting that wasn't and asking her to let me know when they'd be meeting again, and left a message. Called national, left a message letting them know their meeting info was wrong. 5 days later- I have not heard back from the leader and the national website meeting info hasn't changed. Frustrated!!! Giving up all my mommy friends IRL to move across the country 5 years ago, ok, fine. Can I make some new ones please? hmph. No prenatal yoga or childbirth classes for me and no babywearing or diaper free groups here. Where do I go? I could start accosting hippie looking women at the co-op! LOL. I grew up in LLL with my mom leading meetings, my sister is a leader, and I went to many a meeting in my first 10 years of parenting, so it's a norm for me to have it available, thank you white privilege and family entitlement for giving me the ability to stay home with the babies all these years. I'm in my 18th year of nursing.
As of today 1 week later the website is updated, no local meetings, no local contact info. so no LLL for me
