Stay Tuned

Sorry I've been MIA. I haven't had a computer for awhile (getting one for Christmas!) and I've been VERY ill. I was in the hospital last week for 4 days. I suffer from hyperemesis gravidarum. I've lost a lot of weight already, but hopefully everything is under control now. I'll be back and blogging very, very soon.

I have a LOT to say!

Merry Christmas :)


P.S., for those who asksed questions:
1. midwives in FL can attend home vbacs. I believe they have to have a "back up doctor" to sign off on it. No big deal, really, but I've heard it's very hard to find doctors to do this.

2. My midwife asked me if I'd like to be tested for AIDS. I said no, signed a form saying that I declined, and that was that. I believe the law is that the midwife has to ASK if you want to be tested.

So sorry to hear about the HG, that's gotta be really miserable! Does it usually go away not too long into the 2nd trimester or last the whole time?

Hope you're feeling better soon!

Sorry about the HG, too!

You may want to check out The Whining Puker .blogspot.com, since she had HG in her first pregnancy and has done a lot of research into it, and remedies (natural and medical) for it.

Also, Baby Monkey Momma .blogspot.com is a Florida mom who had to go through hoops to find a VBAC midwife. I don't know where the two of you live in Florida, so she might not be able to give you a name of a midwife in your area, but she may be able to help just the same.
