Hormone Schmormone

Hormone Schmormone

Okay, so I'm 5 months pregnant and I think this has been the most um.. emotional pregnancy so far.  I've been super hormonal and felt off-balanced and crazy half the time... well, maybe not really half the time, but far more than the last 2 pregnancies.

Little things get me upset sometimes.  In fact, on Friday I went to the doctor.  I tried to explain to her why I am not going to see the specialist she recommended.  She argued with me about my reasoning, she would not listen to it or try to understand my dilemma.  I was frustrated - so I cried.  I'm pregnant, I'm hormonal, that happens.

For real though - she told me to stop crying because, "we're only trying to help you, and crying won't help your blood sugar or the baby".  FOR REAL?!?!?!  Then I was angry.

Finally I worked past it (although thinking about this encounter still makes me angry).  Then I went to the pharmacy to pick up my meds - they informed me that they don't take my insurance - even though I knew otherwise.  Again - I cried.

Yay husband who straightened things out with the pharmacy!


  1. I can relate with the crazy hormones, I am pretty emotional anyway...but have been a leaky faucet during this one!!! Glad to hear you were able to work out the pharmacy issues...go Randy! ;)

  2. ugh.... that encounter with your dr. makes me angry. i think it'd probably be best for everyone if you just moved back to goshen.

  3. Yep. Gotta love those hormones. Doc sounds kind of annoying, though. If there's not a good standing relationship, you may want to consider changing now. Think about who will be there when you're giving birth!

    As for those hormones, I hated them. To the point that I will never have another pregnancy. I was nuts - pissed, happy, crying, anxious - all within seconds. My oldest and my husband were afraid to breathe... literally. None of us could take that again!

  4. Lol - we do still have a house in Goshen, Melissa...

    Still working on getting back to our old doctor - just have to figure out how to get insurance to cover it - hopefully we can do that in the next couple of weeks.

    The good news is that Randy is able to go with me to my next appointment and he can say things I can't!
