Usually there's a conditional offer of employment before they check your references. (I think that's the law). But, what am I going to say? At least my current boss won't be too shocked by the move....

My current status

I hate those iv locks! After just a couple of hours they start hurting. I'm glad you got rid of it. If they need one later on, they can do a new one.

Sorry only half of the comedy duo showed up....

monkeyscience - It sounds like an overall good appointment. I think there's nothing thereto worry about. You could always start the protein shakes, if you wanted.

I just wanted to check in on you and see how you're doing. Hopefully baby is staying inside still and you're still the ruptured woman who still has fluid.

My thoughts are with you.

No leaking. No labor.

But, one of the twins has severe hydrops. The other looks healthy. It's medically and ethically complicated.

But, this isn't about me. I'll start my own thread when I'm...

I don't see anything wrong with letting her try if she interested. You might be surprised. I suspect she won't actually like the taste and just knowing she can may make her not want it. Like PP said,...

Thank you all for your thoughts. I'm out of surgery. The doc was happy with one stitch and not so happy with the other. She was concerned about how short the cervix is. :( Now we just wait and see.

They'll test me tomorrow, but a lot of the tests come back negative even if it WAS an infection. My body handled it and cleared it quickly, but the baby is still managing it.
