insurance companies

Okay, i am blessed with having insurance through my husband's employer and yes we have good coverage because he works for a big company, but boy oh boy dealing with insurance companies are a pain in the neck. I have been trying to fax a form to continue coverage with them because for some reason they are dropping my ob. I have been given 3 different fax numbers and given conflicting information.

On top of that, we realized that i wasn't even covered for a month because of my husband's company's mistake. Like i said, I am not complaining about having health insurance and feel blessed that we do, I just wish there was some easier way to get something accomplished with them. Who knows what kind of proposal that the government will present for health care but i sure hope it is one that will cut down on the confusion, not expand it any further than it needs to be.

finally feeling better

Okay, going into my 13 week and I'm suppose to have that glow feel great feeling. Where is it??? I still have good days and bad days and yes the good days are more than the bad days, but i woke up this morning feeling crappy and it makes me worried that i might be one of those people that just doesn't get that second trimester reprive. I sure hope that is not the case and that i'm glowy all the time. I'm still hopeful!

We are starting to talk about parenting and how we want to raise our children. Boy can two people have different parenting styles and still parent okay. I think that you mostly parent from the way that you were raised and if you don't like the way that you were raised, then you try to learn a new way, but learning a new way is really hard and you have to rely on books and other people's suggestions which can be even more confusing. So, what do you do? I guess you do the best that you can do in order to raise your kids and hope for the best. Nah, I think you should know as much as you know and talk to your partner about what both of you think is the best and then try to implement the best method possible and cross your fingers!!

Okay, so if anyone is reading this, you know that I haven't been feeling so good lately and when someone asks me how I am feeling i have to respond that I'm not so okay. I hate that, I hate that I don't feel good and that I cannot enjoy the joys of pregnancy. I am approaching my second trimester and need to realize that I need to tough it out and just forget about these last 6 weeks or so. I haven't had any prolong illness in my life and I'm not used to feeling crappy but I know how it feels now and I'm looking foward to telling people I feel great!

Sleep deprived

Okay, having a new experience lately that I haven't been able to sleep at night. Wierd for me, because I have always been a good sleeper, yes I am pregnant but what is up with this. I'm suppossed to be tired all the time, not be an insomiac. The longer I am pregnant, the more i realize that being pregnant is not just about creating a life, it is about preparing for parenthood and learning how one to be sleep deprived and to take care of others when I don't feel good myself.

When to stay home or go to work

I always read about how much more productive it is for an employee to stay at home if they are sick because it can cause others to be sick and reduce the workforce's productivity. Makes sense right? Then why do we get the impression or at least I do that when I stay at home, I am going to get into trouble at work? Staying at home when you don't feel good is the right thing to do, but when you do this, you either feel guilty or you have all of this work to make up with when you get back, so what is the point.

pictures at work

Well, back to the grind of work i go. I took a week off because I wasn't feeling so good, but came back to work yesterday and it was tough but i did it and today seems to be okay so far, so far so good. I have my cutipies to look at the u/s of our baby and our wedding picture. I know why people bring pics to work now because of how it makes them feel. The pics are so telling that i'm not sure if i'm feeling better or just happy, but i'll take both because like is great and i love everything that i have.

We finally announced to the world that we are pregnant over the weekend and I told my supervisors today as well. Always a wierd experience telling your boss that you are pregnant I guess because there can be only a couple of things that they can say such as, so are you going to work up to your labor and are you coming back to work which both questions were asked. Well, I hope that I can work up to my labor but the way i feel right now, don't feel like working at all, but i'm hoping that will change soon.

Telling people about your pregnancy is a great thing and it makes me realize how loved we are and how much support we have in our lives. I'm glad that cat is out of the bag and now I can feel nausau and tiredness all over the place.
