Vent warning...



Argh, my mouth is killing me. I don't know if it's a cavity or my gums but i think it's my gums. LA just got rid of the medicaid covering dentistry for pregnant women unless they're under 21. I know the tax payers shouldn't be responsible for my dentist bills but this sucks... I'm thankful for the medicaid to cover my pregnancy at all until we can straighten things out with hubby's work insurance but man. :( The whole side of my face hurts and I have a pounding headache. T_T I wish Hubby was home but he had a job start at 5:30 (it's almost that now) so he won't be home for a while yet. I just want to curl up and take a nap.

my doctor gave me the sheet at my last appointment and said to go in sometime this week and get it done. I wonder if i waited till monday if thatd be ok. I dont want them to turn me down though.

I'm not too short... 5'6" and normally 115. I have horrible eating habits but my metabolism loves me I guess.

Ok! I've only ever had anything like this before labor and I definitely don't want that to happen! I'm usually constipated and lucky to go a few times a week while pregnant.

Y'all are all talking about being short...I'm 4'11". Lol. I'm the shortest person I Knkw. Lol. And usually about 105-110 pre-pregnancy. Currently I am about 114-116. And will probably gain at least 30 lbs if I stick to my normal weight gain while pregnant.

If you figure it out let me know! Mine have been sore and tingly! I even had dreams of breastfeeding during my nap - I'm guessing they were bothering me then. lol

Sorry I've been so absent. I've been so bored. Between the weather and DH's work schedule I've been feeling stir crazy. My next appt is friday morning, so I'm looking forward to getting out of the house for the day.



Has anyone here had a late NT scan? Like really late? My doc told me that they would do one this week if I wanted, but I will be 15w 6d on friday. I thought you werent supposed to do them after 14w?



I'm sorta hoping they don't realize til they start the US because I want to see if the tech can tell me the sex. :P
