I just got home from getting my nexplanon inserted. I psyched myself out before I went by watching a YouTube video of the procedure, but it really wasn't bad. They use a little Novocaine, so it didn't hurt any more than a regular shot when they put that giant needle in to actually implant the thing - and it only took like 20 seconds!



Apparently since it's a newish thing they ask you to participate in their study on it. They'll be calling me a few times over the course of the next 3 years (whether I have it removed or not) and asking about any side effects I may have. Each time they contact me I'll get a $10 check. Awesome. :)



Is anyone else's baby sleeping an extra lot here lately? The past few days Aaron has wanted to do nothing but sleep! I really think he would've slept right through my appointment until we got home if I had let him, but since it's a 45 minute drive I didn't want to chance him waking up hungry in the car. He only nursed on one side and then just fell asleep after just a few seconds on the other side.

Susan: That's awesome. I wish I could get that. My stupid OB... OMG I'm so mad. He literally won't give any other birth control but a full pill. WTF! I'm breastfeeding, I can't take the full pill, I need a mini pill but he won't give it or anything else to me. I'm so upset.



I'm working on finding a new GYNO to give me something but it may take a while to get in and I only have 1.5wks of my medicaid left. I could cry. I'm not going to get birth control or antidepressants for my PPD before it runs out. And I doubt I can afford it out of pocket. I hate insurance and I hate doctors and I want to cry. It was this way after my first and it wasn't supposed to be this time. :'(

What?? That sucks! I would try asking your local health department. Ours can prescribe the mini pill at the very least and I think they offer Mirena through the crisis pregnancy center.



I know you are dead set on no more babies, but it's totally do-able with OTC stuff too. We used condoms, nfp, and sometimes contraceptive film, and we stayed baby free for 3 years after DD. The only reason I got pregnant when I did was because I had a mixup with my nfp and wq had gotten lazy with condoms. :P

I sent the insurance a question through the website about who I can go see. If they don't get back to me by tomorrow I'll call the local pregnancy places. I don't know what to do to get some antidepressants though... I'll go to urgent care before my insurance runs out if it comes to that. Last time it got BADDDD before I broke and got help. I don't want to let it get to that point again.



Yeah, I can... I'm just paranoid to not do everything possible to prevent another pregnancy. I'd sooner have an abortion than another baby so I don't want to risk that. Hopefully Hubby can get snipped soon and we can just do a pull out around my fertile time (or use condoms) and surely that'd be super safe.

I get a deep, intense itch sometimes if baby isn't latched just right.
