I celebrated by puking my guts out last night. I was so proud to say that I hadn't thrown up and had it pretty easy, and then last night happened. Yuck!
Kent and I had our 2nd appointment this week and we met our doctor, Dr. Eddy. I'm not sure yet if we'll be going the hospital route, but if we do, I think I'm in pretty good hands. He reminds me of a long time family friend and I really, really appreciated his laid back personality.
Getting insurance has been a never ending nightmare over the past few months and we finally went the route of MedicAid. FOR THE RECORD: WE DO NOT TAKE HANDOUTS AND ARE TYPICALLY AGAINST GOVERNMENT WELFARE PROGRAMS. However, I couldn't get insured :( and there was NO way that we could afford to have a baby on our own. Thank you good ol' Uncle Sam (for the 1st and hopefully the last time). All in all, we found out we were accepted into the program- phew!
That night Kent and I watched "The Business of being Born." I HIGHLY reccommend it to all people having or planning to have a baby. I had first learned about mid-wives and other alternatives to hospitals when I was in college. I agreed with a lot of what they were saying then, and I'm agreeing even more now. So now that we have insurance, I don't think we're going to go that route...or at least we will have the hospital as "plan B."
This morning I went to my old roommate, Julie's, Bridal Shower. It was just lovely and I am very excited for her. It was fun sitting with her and Megan and giggling about old times. Boy have I mellowed out since living with those girls! Back in July I told Kent that 2 of my friends were going to get married this year...Jeanette, and Julie; both of who were not dating anyone at the time. They are BOTH getting married on the SAME day!
Well now I'm just rambling about nothingness, so I should let you go.
We're in for another busy week and are looking forward to seeing old friends and having some fun!
