Thought I'd let you guys know, I ended up in the cardiac unit at the hospital all weekend, got home last night. I'm on bedrest at least this whole week, possibly longer. My heart doesn't like pregnancy, but is ok other than I am and will continue to be really dizzy. Apparently I'm having a migraine that won't quit either, and I can expect it to keep going for another 3 weeks. I have Demerol for it, but it only knocks it down for a few hours, and then it comes back.
My "acting" supervisor at work is trying to be as big of a pain as possible about this whole thing. I may be filing a suit against her if she doesn't back off, pretty much, she seems to be trying to discipline me or prevent me from getting FMLA. Pretty much, that's illegal.
I don't know if it's the stress from her or just all the pregnancy problems, but I've been very sick all morning, and I have a bad feeling I'm going to get stuck in the hospital again for more IV's
Things keep getting more and more interesting....I had a bunch - tubes and tubes - of blood drawn, checking for the levels of chemicals I work with They are some bad ones. Either way, Terry and I are talking about the possiblity of me not returning to work. That means we might be getting hitched REALLY fast, so I'm covered under his insurance. I'll be onto plan B - getting a couple more training sessions down, and starting some taxidermy. I'm looking forward to it.
Still feel crappy most of the time, but we've been doing a lot of talking, so I'm feeling better mentally about our future and being able to have a hopefully healthy baby.
Well, hopefully it looks like things will turn out ok. Terry got his yearly packet for his health insurance info, and it looks like I"m in the clear for getting married and having the pregnancy covered, plus I checked and my doctors are preferred providers so I don't have to get a new doctor. I went to the court and got the marriage license applied for, and I've got three potential "ordained" folks, just trying to figure out schedules to get one to our cabin, hoping for Sept 8th. It will just be us and our parents, I'm really not up to "entertaining" anyone or dealing with trying to feed people or plan anything. Just going by KISS - and Terry is good with that. We will have a big bash probably next year or the year after, probably renew our vows and have the whole pig roast reception and everything. I just can't do that now, and hopefully our friends and relatives will understand. We will take pictures
So, as long as a take it easy, I'm ok, too much moving around gets my heart really out of whack, so I just do a little bit at a time at home. I'm happy with how things are working out, and from little bit I've talked to Terry, he seems content too. I'm hoping today he will be working a normal 8 hours, so I can actually see him!
Thanks for the thoughts and prayers - even though the pregnancy is kicking my butt, the peace that comes from finding a good solution always makes one feel alright again.
