I’ve merged all my notaclowncar posts into my regular blog so that I don’t have to keep maintaining both blogs.  I was always at a bit of a loss about where to post things about my pregnancy.  This blog made sense before I wanted the world to know I was pregnant, and it was also […](image)

So I don’t really feel like the steroids have helped a whole lot with the hyperemesis. I felt marginally better the first few days and kept a couple crackers down here or there, but not enough improvement to really be able to say it was the steroids that made it better. But there *have* been […](image)

Making the Best of Itchezperky

The steroids aren’t helping the hyperemesis so much – but they are doing other things.  I had crippling sciatic pain  before I started the steroids and that barely flickers anymore.  The inflammation around my PICC site is hugely improved.  My overall itchiness is nearly gone.  And I have extra energy I didn’t really expect to […](image)

Insult to Injurychezperky

So I started taking IV Steroids Friday night.  It definitely helped the inflammation around my PICC site, and I’m generally less itchy.  I think my headaches are a tad better.  But I’m still really nauseated.  It helped a tiny bit the first couple days and then we started tapering it, and…  disaster.  I don’t know […](image)

The Saga Continueschezperky

I saw my perinatology practice last week.  Dr. P. had left for the day, so I saw Dr. M.  I like her, but sometimes she’s a bit wishy washy.  I told her about the difficulty I’ve been having with finding an obstetrician willing to take me on – and mentioned that several doctors have told […](image)

Just so you don’t think I’ve been making this whole pregnancy thing up, I’m including proof of my status in this post.  Personally, I think I just look fatter, but my husband assures me that I look pregnant.   I guess we can compromise and say I’m a bit of both.  😉 I was quite […](image)

Building a Yurtchezperky

I admit that I’m not sure HOW to build a yurt – though wikipedia did provide excellent step-by-step photographs on how to build a yurt.  I’m clearly going to have to brush up on the technique, though, because right now I think I might have to take my friend’s advice to deliver this baby in […](image)

Okay, so it’s not like I was *ever* one of the cool kids.  I got left behind when people were picking teams for kickball most of the time.  My red-headed nemesis in 6th grade used to pull on my pigtails to harass me on the playground.  (Joke’s on him – we ended up dating half […](image)

Still OB-lesschezperky

Tue, 08 Dec 2009 01:10:56 +0000

I’ll write more later, but the long and the short of it is that I’m still, for the moment, OB-less.  Saw the shiny new OB today and he doesn’t know if he’s comfortable taking me on as a patient because of the complexity of care that I require. Sigh.(image)

Perinatology Updatechezperky

So I saw the perinatologist yesterday.  I had a 3:30 appointment and I was done with the growth ultrasound by a little after 4pm.  Baby is growing perfectly – has a brain, legs, feet, hands, arms, spine, etc.  The sonographer couldn’t quite visualize the four chambers of the heart, but she said it’s a little […](image)
