Friday Fives

Friday Fives

I just made up my own meme. Five things on Friday. It might already exist, but I’m too tired to try and find something. So I’ll just continue on…

1. I had an appointment with a hematologist on Tuesday. She seemed unconcerned about everything; I guess because she sees a lot of people who are much worse than me. I was the youngest patient there by 20 years or more. She did some more bloodwork (lupus and something else), and will call on Tuesday. She told me to take a baby aspirin and a bunch of other things, so here is my new daily pill regimen: 1 baby aspirin, 3 folic acid, 1 B6, 1 B12, 1 prenatal, and 2 progesterone. She doesn’t see a problem with pregnancy, and neither does my perinatologist, so we’ll work from here I guess. I have a history of being bad with daily pills (don’t ask me how often I took my prenatals when I was pregnant with Savannah!), so I am starting now in order to get in the habit. I am in the middle of my cycle, so I guess next month we can start officially trying if we decide to do that. I might want to wait another month though… I feel weird discussing this on my blog, so that’s probably all I’ll say about that. :-)

I didn’t get a chance to ask about my migraines. She did say to be careful when I’m on long trips – make sure I’m moving around to avoid any blood clots in my legs. She also said I will have to be careful if I ever have surgery, but I’m sure we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

2. I bought an old dresser and am working on refinishing it. It had been decorated with stickers and glitter in years past and so I scraped it off and sanded it, and am hopefully going to paint it tomorrow. It’s going to go in Savannah’s room – she needs a place for her clothes! I hope it turns out nicely, because this is my first time attempting a project like this. I’ll post pictures on my house blog when I’m done.

3. Paul got his holiday schedule and he’s working on Christmas this year. :-( We were going to go to Orlando, but we’ll be home I guess. Oh well! We enjoyed making our own memories at home last year. And although I like being with my family, I also do like being in Atlanta instead of Florida. For some reason, having a cold Christmas just seems *right*. :-) (And I say this having spent most of my childhood in a country where Christmas was at the beginning of summer.) Oh and speaking of seasons – fall is in full swing here in Atlanta and it is BEAUTIFUL! I really should just take my camera and start taking pictures. I just love driving and seeing all the fall colors.

4. We had grass put in our backyard two weeks ago, and it is starting to peek up through the straw! I am so excited. I hope next spring we have a nice yard for Savannah to play in. Right now we mostly play in the front yard, where it’s slightly nerve-wracking being on a corner and having streets on two sides of us.

5. I am attending an all-day strategic planning session for the birth center this weekend! I am very excited. I hope this will give me a lot of ideas for the website and our Facebook page (and all the other social media things we’re part of).

Okay it was way more difficult than I expected to write 5 things. I’m going to go watch CSI:NY now!

  1. It might seem like a simple thing, but get a 7-day pill box. In the past I’ve tried leaving my pill bottles on the counter or on the table so I’d remember to have them with my breakfast, but it didn’t always work. I actually got a 7-day pill box for a craft for my husband – I think I put pics on my blog – and it’s wide and bright so you can’t miss it.

    Glad to hear that you’re getting things taken care of! Sounds pretty hopeful to me. Good luck! We’re currently praying about having another baby; now that Josiah is almost two I feel “ready,” but there are so many concerns to weigh.

  2. Oh yes, I’ve had a pill box for a long time! (From back when I was pregnant and taking prenatals.) I don’t know how I could do it without one!
