Out, damn'd IUD! out, I say!

So, I ended up in the ER, had a bunch of blood tests (My iron is back to normal, yay!) and some ultrasounds. The IUD was out of place but wasn't embedded so out it went. I was still in pain when I got home but this morning everything is better.

So, the ER at Mayo is in the St Mary's hospital. This is a catholic place so... I couldn't get a new IUD placed or any birth control prescription filled there. So annoying.

I decided to go on the mini-pill for now. Zach will be getting a vasectomy, so hopefully it won't be long. I would get another IUD but I just need a break from thinking about my uterus.

Ross

Birth Story

So, first some background. The week before Ross was born was pretty stressful. We had to put our cat Emerson down (his kidneys were shutting down) and that made everyone really sad. Also, gwangi had a really bad cold. Through the week, I missed two days of work because I had a cold/sinus infection and Zach missed 1.5 because of his cold/cough/whatever. On Thursday, at my weekly checkup, the doctor asked if he was tested for pertussis, and all night long we couldn't think of anything other than "what if he has it and I go into labor, would they even let him on the floor?". On Friday, he woke up and realized he injured his rib coughing, so he went to the doctor to get tested for pertussis and asked to be started on the treatment for it without the results because I was so close to term with the baby. He also got cough syrup with codeine in it, which we decided he would test out that night because I didn't think I would go into labor and we wanted to know how badly it would effect him.

Long birth storyCollapse )

So, in the end, I had a baby, which is all that really matters.
