I would wait for the march trip, imo
Between now and then, I’d take a bunch of pictures of them and also note down any exposures you noticed that day (gardening, chemical cleaners, etc).
I'm a terrible patient. I can deal with most pain fine, but not being able to breathe through my nose plus the sore throat is making me a whiny child.
How are you feeling today, @Tumnus
(I initially kept tagging your real name and getting frustrated it wasn’t coming up, oops)
Better, how are you? I took friday off and spent a lot of it hanging out with my neti pot. I learned that E likes hot water with lemon which is weird but good to know for when he gets sick.
Going to try work today!
Good luck! May your staff be useful, and your snot be clear.
We have the cutest/best med student here in NICU. The first day she came back after rounds and thanked us for letting her take care of our son. When she comes in to check on C2 before rounds she always talks to us and makes sure we don’t have any questions that she can answer. Then today after rounds she came back just to let us know it would be a little while for them to finish rounds and then look at his films (he vomited again, checking his belly). And also to let us know that she gets nervous when she presents, she’s not nervous about him, just so we aren’t worried.
Aww. She's going to be so amazing. What a kind soul.
Apparently I had my Hokas sent to Fresno instead of Hayward, so I am very grateful they came before I left for the weekend!
Anyway, I have 2 pairs of Hokas for work now in hopes of healing and preventing my plantar fasciitis. I also under pronate (feet roll outwards), so I wanted to make sure the shoes covered both issues. Fingers crossed.
@Lh718 My MIL broke her foot a couple years ago and it didn’t heal right, and now she pretty much lives in Hokas. I hope they’re as great for you as they are for her!
I adore my Hokas.
I think I have hemorrhoids, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Oh joy.
What should I do/get to treat them that’s not totally overkill, given that they’re not that bad currently but I have probably ~12 weeks of pregnancy left?
My OB said Tucks pads and Prep H were fine. (But ask.) Colace and/or Miralax are safe and semi-effective too.
But most importantly- lots of fiber and try to not sit on the toilet forever and straining to poo is the worst.
Squatty Potty! Also echoing @CoolWife on the Tucks and Prep H. I cannot stress enough that you shouldn’t strain, so do whatever it takes to avoid that. If you’re sitting for more than a few minutes just give up and try again later. Also you can try to gently push them back in if they get bigger/more annoying.
I really like the Fridababy peri bottle for post-delivery. You can fill it with water and witch hazel and that’s nice and soothing front and back, and the bottle is very easy to use/aim. Also in the early days you’re wearing mesh undies and gigantic pads so you can take a couple Tucks, stuck them right on the trouble spots and just leave them there letting the pad etc. hold them in place.
I have squatty potties at home, but sometimes I have to poop at work.
I should have mentioned that I started taking an iron supplement a couple days ago so that’s a contributing factor. I called my OB office and the nurse said colace, sitz bath, and preparation H.
