Re: Dec. Bellies Daily Chat 9/9!

I attended a Birthing From Within training about 10 years ago when I was working as a doula. I can't say enough good things about the book/program. I bet you can find the book on amazon pretty cheap these days.

AFM - I'm taking all four kids to the dentist tomorrow and then racing to my fetal echo (with all the kids in tow) so I'm hoping we don't get any bad news. I can always have my 15 yo take the younger kids to the waiting room if it seems like something is not right, but either way I think it will be important for them to see their little brother on the u/s screen in real time not just the pics I've brought home.

My insurance wouldn't cover my testing strips or insulin today. They switched my plan all around and I understand some medications require pre-auth but what about my testing strips?! How will I know if my blood sugar is all whacked out? I'm not just a gestational diabetic so this was odd to me.

I started taking zoloft for anxiety and to stave off post partum depression. I think I'm starting to feel the effects after two weeks now, not totally better, but thank goodness because I've been doing battle with the insurance! I probably wouldn't have lasted this long without a breakdown if it weren't for the medication. I'm hoping I won't have to take it too long after delivery, but I was hospitalized with SEVERE depression after my DD and it was beyond hard on our family.
