Happy 1st day of November!

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween. I can't believe the holiday season is coming up so quickly!

I'll post my little update:

As you can see from my signature, baby #3 is on the way I'm only 5 weeks, I feel good though and I've found a really awesome midwife. We're still on track to move next summer. We got in touch with transpo and they WILL pay to move us, despite what DH's NG unit said. So that is a big relief. DH hasn't started applying for jobs yet so I'm trying to get him moving on that, though he has actually looked up jobs which is a start. I don't think he understands the timeline and how he'll need to apply for several jobs and wait to hear back about interviews so it could take some time. It's looking like we'll end up around DC/MD/VA. We also have to decide whether to buy or rent, it's going to depend a lot on what kind of salary we're looking at.

Congrats Katie!!!!!!
And if you are in fact ending up in the DC area, let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Having just survived that move and will a huge learning curve I feel I have a good bit to pass on to the next lady.

Well I just got back from my wonderful trip to Hawaii with DH and the belly. Wow I just timed it right, i don't think I would be up to starting that same vacation now as I was two weeks ago! I've gotten so big and have gotten to he point where I just want to be home. Thankfully that what I get now.

So now I just focus on unpacking my new rental home and planning a great birth.

So I'm thinking rather than the more involved switch to standard, that I may just do a point of service option. Has anyone here chosen this for a midwife or birth? Can you tell me about any pitfalls I should think about before walking that path?

The one thing I was wondering about after talking to a tricare rep this morning is that she said my midwife could not order tests or ultrasounds and that for those I would be going back to my OB. So does that mean i would be keeping "shadow care"? I thought that was frowned on with tricare? With the twins I'm sure some of those test will come up.

I'm in the waiting room for my first full midwife appointment so i will ask them some of this as well, hopefully as a in network place they will know a bit more than me, but I wondered what you gals know as well.

Hawaii sounds awesome, what a great pre-babymoon! I'm on standard and seeing a homebirth CNM, she can order all tests and ultrasounds. I don't know a whole lot about point of service, how much harder will switching to Standard be?

Standard just affects all my other healthcare in ways I'm not sure I feel like messing with. And not being able to switch back for a year commits me to those changes. That's why I'm looking at my options.

That makes sense. Is it because of the point of service option that she won't be able to order tests? It sounds like you could probably do shadow care, I have no idea what would happen if they know you're having a homebirth, though. I doubt they'd hassle you too much considering they can't refuse to help you, right? I'm sure someone else has done this before and knows how it works better than I do.

Well today the movers come.... yayyyyyy for having our stuff

So DH opted out of the flu shot. He seems to be getting a lot of hell over it.... any suggestions? I'm certain he cant be the only one. He has to get a letter from his commander stating his exemption is ok ... DH is claiming religious.

I'm not sure if it's this area or what.... but every other time DH opted out, it was never a big deal and no grief was given.

Thanks all

As far as opting out, I think it really depends on the commander. I think they can basically say that him not getting it is detrimental to his performance and ability to do his job should he get sick with the flu, technically they're allowed the religious exemption but it could get ugly. My DH has never been "allowed" the decline the flu shot and he's heard any number of reasons for it.

Yep. DH was able to decline the small pox vax prior to deployment because I was pregnant when he left and because of his history of eczema. However, he's never been able to opt out of any other vaccines and did have to get the small pox and anthrax when he arrived in Iraq. According to a neighbor who is a preventative medicine MD, the Army considers the vaccines to be a soldier readiness issue, not a personal choice issue. When an individual decides to join the armed services, he/she gives up certain rights, including the right to decline medical treatments deemed necessary to keep troop readiness levels high (i.e. treatment for STDs, vaccines, antibiotics deemed necessary to keep infections from spreading throughout the unit etc.). DH is pretty pro-vax in general, and wouldn't consider refusing a flu shot to be worth an Article 15. The small pox was another story because of the risks of shedding.

DH had to get the smallpox after he got on the bus and was waiting to leave because I was pregnant at the time as well. The big issue I have with the vaccines is the lack of record keeping, I get the reasoning and that they are pretty much owned by the military. My DH was told he had to get another flu shot 4 months after the last one because it was a new year, he was able to decline it because they realized they had no record of his last one. Same with the PPD, he got one a month after the last one because they don't document things properly.

I agree. This is why hand carried records are good to have. Doesn't mean that the MTF will honor them, but having one's own documentation is sometimes helpful anyhow.

Now if my husband would only remember to do that it would be great

The key to not getting vaccines is maintaining your own shot record. I've never seen a shot record not honored.

With smallpox, I was nursing DD so didn't get it with everyone else. Right before I got on the plane, they drove me to the medic area and got it and took me to the plane. I didn't have any issues delaying it while I was at CRC.

One of these years I will get to go with hubby to his ball. This just isnt that year. Ball #4 of 4 and Ive yet to go.

But then this is going to be Valentines day #4 of 4 without him.

So whatever. I get him for Christmas (#2 of 4) so Im glad for that at least.



On a related topic, Mae is 11 pounds!

related, as I missed the ball because I didnt want to leave her with a babysitter for 4+ hours and thats if we just went to eat.... and because I had my 6 week check up today!

no worries, MP, I think the balls are annoying. The food is bad (usually), the drinks are expensive, and the husbands rarely have a good time. LOL.

I've only been to one ball so far.  The first two hours... not so fun.  Once it was 'over' and it was just the DJ it was okay though.  There's another one coming up when this LO is about a month old but I doubt we'll be going to it.  Its just too early to leave him for so long like that.  I just hope I stay pregnant long enough to go to the Christmas party.  At least that sounds decent, lol.

 

Still waiting for DH to get his phone back.  All the dates I have are so confusing.  Is he getting his phone back tomorrow?  The next day?  Next week?  Maybe then I can get the date for when he might be coming home!  Its getting a lot easier to be by myself but its driving our kitty crazy.  He runs around the house and meows at the windows and doors looking for his Daddy.  I wish I could get him to understand that I can't make him come home any earlier.


This Mommy and Military Daddy are loving their son.

As far as Ive seen, DHs balls are pretty enjoyable. The food is usually good (I'm still mad I didn't get to go last year, they had cheese stuffed steak and fresh grilled asparagus!) and most of the guys get along really well. Ry plays xBox with a lot of the guys from the other companies so they tend to sit and talk about that the whole time while the wives talk about babies. Sure sounds enjoyable to me! LOL

 

But yeah, Ive heard horror stories about other peoples balls. I'm just glad my hubby is with the battalion he is... we fit in pretty well for family day stuff.

I love getting dressed up, so the Balls seem to offer a nice opportunity to do so.  However, I have to concur about the lousy food, boring speeches etc.  Also, finding a babysitter can be tough, and my littlest DS doesn't do well if I'm not home at bedtime, so it feels like going is more trouble than it's worth.  I went to our unit's redeployment ball about four weeks ago (35 weeks pregnant and all smile.gif) because my DH felt it was important that we go as a couple, and because I was receiving a volunteer award.  It was expensive, we had to deal with drunken Rangers at the next table, and I sprained my right foot (which I'd broken about a year ago) by wearing a high heeled shoe.  So not worth it!

i love balls and DH seems to love them because he know i do so much and he like to see me dress up.

 he also has a full Dress Mess version of his uniform so he is often the best dressed at the table so he likes that alot.

 

they are what you make them, we make them a event and treat them as such. last year we actually flew to DC (little did we know we would soon be living here!) to go to the national Army Birthday Ball, it was a huge production and really was nice. in part because you could sponsor civilians and half our 10 person table was guests, so there was a lot of ooos and aahs from them and lots to explain to them that kept us busy.

 

we plan to go to the holiday ball here mid Dec. I'm going to be 33weeks with the twins, still pondering what the heck on going to wear, but im committed to getting myself to the last ball i will get to go to for a while!

Hey guys... so DH deployed a few weeks ago.  They have been in country for about 2 weeks and already have 3 fatalities and 6 serious injuries from IEDs.  I am ok with him not being here but him being in danger like this is spazzing me out.  He is the colonel's driver so his job involves driving over hell's half acre... how do you guys deal with this?!?  His last deployment he was in an office the entire time and we got to talk every day, I haven't heard from him in almost a week.  Also, I HATE living here with my parents.  They are driving me insane and I want to go home.  Just had to whine...

Oh, Rachel.  It's hard.  I've been there.  Don't watch or read the news.  Spend time with wives in your DH's unit, not talking about the situation over there, necessarily, just hanging out.  I found it was often more stressful to spend time with friends whose husbands weren't in dangerous situations.  ((((hugs))))
