I guess I do not cope well with stress. I bet my family and friends would line up to tell you this is the truth.
I had my follow up appointment to review my 20 wk u/s results today. I had the whole live long morning to sit and speculate, plus I worked from home. Never a good idea to have unchaperoned Roccie home with Dr. Google before an appointment.
First offense: I ate almost an entire bag of Chicago style popcorn - the kind that is half cheese and half caramel. I ate the whole bag in just over 24 hours but 90% was chowed today. Sigh.
Second offense: I got mad at Resolve. Who gets mad at Resolve?? This tightly wound momma. Gah. Not my proudest moment.
It appeared the Resolve post was slinging desperation and partnering it with donor eggs and surrogates. So, I let 'er rip. I spouted on Twitter and, worse yet, I spouted on FB. Can't really hide when you run yer yap on FB. I guess I could have just deleted the comment, but I felt like I owed the follow up apology and moreover, I owed the explanation as to what my confusion was all about.
By the time I got my hot head to the OB I was feeling much more calm. I think the blowup and massive sugar come down expelled all that negativity. There really has to be a better way. Shame I haven't learned a healthy method in my 40.5 years...
Glinda had a lot of optimism to share around the placenta previa. Mine is marginal, meaning it is encroaching in the 2 cm safety zone that should exist between the cervix and the placenta.
Best news is that is can get better or stay the same. Getting worse is not really an option with placenta previa. How about that one? Whew. So I am back in 4 wks for another u/s. I made the appointment in my OB office as I can schedule around the Biggest Jerk In the World, the Evil OB.
Glinda had phoned last week around my long wait in the office. Her message was thoughtful and personal. She was very apologetic as she was caught in an emergency c-section. Guess who was at fault for it? Evil OB. Ha, small world.
It was a funny and sweet bonding moment with Glinda and Roccie vs. placenta previa and the Evil OB.
