To both of you - I haven't dealt with a pump personally, but I have heard that mamas need an Rx from their Dr for insurance to cover it. if it would go through otherwise.

AFM: Good appt this morning, other than having to wait a long while - I've gotten spoiled by my own OB, he's really almost always on time, barely any waiting time at all. I then have to wait at the lab, but that's not his control.
It sounds like all the OBs were running later today - mine is off, so any patients with appts this month would be seeing someone else, and then another OB was at the hospital.
On the plus side, I didn't have to wait at all at the lab today, lol.
Anyways, all is well... other than that # on the scale Ah well, I'll deal with that part in the coming year. My platelets are only down to 92 so far - I'll have to check my notes, but I think they were lower than that all ready with the boys. My hemoglobin is staying the same - it's good that it's not dropping, but the OB suggested to double the pills (2/day instead of just 1) and see if that makes a difference at my next appt.
Best part - he looked at my chart and noted that I am out of town, so he gave me 3 weeks til the next appt instead of 2 weeks Since all is looking fine, I'm happy with that. Probably it helps that he also noted "this is all "old hat" for you by now, eh?"

Now I just have to not think too much about how far along 2 more weeks will put me
