Last year was the first time I was able to take off work to join Matt to view the San Francisco Giants’ Home Opener. Rather than a home based party as is his tradition, we combined the day with road trip to complete some very special errands as part of the process to get our marriage license.
For the last nine years Matt has made a tradition of watching the San Francisco Giants Home Opener at home with food and beer and guests when possible. This year I was able to join as did his mom, Candy.
My book review today is of a book that is on some ways the polar opposite to the one I reviewed last week. Pregnancy 411 is written by two physicians, an OB, and a pediatrician, who both are also moms to two children each. They are able to write both as professionals and mothers, and the book is richer for their combined experiences.
Our baby is now in week eleven of development. This correlates to the size of a fig, or as they are not quite in season, the size of a date. We wore our San Francisco Giants jerseys in honor of the opening day for our team at home, which I’ll write about later this week.
I’ve been blessed with good health over my life, something I am very gratfeful for. As a result I do not have a lot of experience in dealing with insurance companies for myself for non routine visits. It was with great confusion that Matt and I had received a letter form our insurance company denying our ultrasound expense. We’ve been doing our best to understand the ins and ours of our insurance but it’s been confusing in the way navigating the maze below might be.
When I had my first OB appointment with Dr. G, he gave me a bunch of literature on pregnancy including a yellow sheet with over the counter medicines I could take safely during my pregnancy. Now, with a cough lasting three days and getting especially worse this morning, I decided to start my day at Urgent Care. As I was there early, I was the second patient signed in. The triage nurse had me put on a mask and gown.
This week I review a product I was very excited to buy, PharMeDoc Total Body Pillow with Jersey Cover billed as The World’s Most Comfortable Maternity / Pregnancy Cushion. My hope was that the pillow would help me sleep on my left side, the preganancy position recommended by doctors despite my natural tendencies to sleep on my back or stomach.
