Hi guys. Just got back from the pre-admission testing for the D&C. The lab tech tore up two of my veins. Ugh. I have really good veins but she had a hard time for some reason. I have a huge bump on my hand that is going to be a huge bruise in a few hours. I hope I get a different tech next week.

:wave: I have two kids needing me desperately right now. I'll try to pop in again later!

Karen - I am new so forgive me but a D&C? Like Dilation and Curettage? If so, I am very sorry. I am hoping I just am missing some abbreviation thing on here....

Morning All! Another Woe Is Me Not Going To The Gym Day--- I dunno know why I feel like this, I love the gym? I am hoping that this slump ends soon. :^:

Sorry for the downer post, just am feeling to tired to do anything, gotta get motivated----

Well I'll end here, & try to get on again later. Have a Good Day Ladies! :D

Hi All, :wave:

Lady, :welcome2: Of course you may! Tell us about yourself, what plan are you doing, if any.

Karen, Ugh, I usually tell them they have 1 chance to get it right, if they don't, they're done. :D I hate needles don't have good veins to begin with. When is the D&C?

It's like a madhouse here today. Have a good one all! :wave:

Haha @ one chance - brings back memories. They can try all they want in my arm if it's not while I'm in labor. They used a big needle when they wanted to induce my labor. Now that one hurt and she only had one time with that one. Then she tried to battle me and blood was everywhere. Anyway, it was nasty and painful but eventually I gave in because I wanted to see my baby.

I'm into my second week of WW. I lost 2.5 my first week. I need to lose around 80 pounds. I go to the gym 3 to 4 times a week. I actually have to go to the gym...it is an requirement for my degree. So, I am looking forward to my A. I am married with no children. I work in a photo land and I do photography every chance I get. I'm obsessed with The Biggest Loser!

I have fallen in love with the eliptical machine...lol I am a liitle proud that can last 40 minutes. My goal is to go an hour.

I had to go look at what an eliptical machine by Googling it and when I saw the images of what it was I said "oh **** to the no". LOL! Me and that machine do not get along. When I'm at the gym, I walk on the treadmill and look at the eliptical machine out the side of my eye. If you are doing 40 minutes on that thing then you are doing GREAT!!!! :carrot:

Maybe I'll attempt to do that machine again...hopefully sometime soon.

Asparagus, just reading yesterday's thread...yeah, my PF pain is pretty bad. Started gradually and I knew what it was becuase I had this when my 5 y/o was a baby. Podiatrist said ditch the non-supportive shoes, wait for the cooler weather, and come back when you stop breastfeeding if it's still bothering you for a shot of cortisone! :yikes: It did go away pretty quickly when the cooler weather came adn I was wearing "good" shoes again. This time is much worse, it's been a couple months. The splint was OK, but I think it's too big. I sleep mostly on my stomach and my heel does not stay in the "heel spot" of the splint when I lay that way. It didn't take quite soo long to be able to walk this AM when I got out of bed though, so maybe it helped.

SBD, LOL, when I was in labor w/#1, I was going natural, it got to the point (transition) where I could not relax my body enough inbetween contractions for him to move down. The flipped me over and gave me 2 shots of Demeral in the butt. I don't remember feeling it. :lol: So I guess it's OK for them to give me shots in labor! :lol3:

Hi again. I have a few minutes. I'm making the kids clean up the playroom. It looks like a tornado blew through.

Lauren: I should have made the tech try my other arm when the first vein blew. My hand still hurts and probably will for a couple days. She did a job on it. I didn't have the option of refusing. They are typing and cross matching for the procedure. I have to get it done so I can have the ablation. I am sick of Aunt Flo being here. Talk about stress eating. I almost lost when I got home, but I did OK. Had my cereal and a handful of almonds (which the kids shared). Lunch now, may be a different story! Oh, the D&C will be Monday afternoon.

Lady: Welcome!! Dive right in. I love the elliptical too, but I can't afford a gym membership. I make do with Wii fit and the treadmill. Yesterday we took the kids for a bike ride after lunch. That was cool. Having DH working from home has some nice perks :D . Congrats on the nice loss.

Pear: Hey, could you come to my house? I barely have the energy to sit up in a chair these days! I've got a few big cleaning jobs that need to be done that I haven't been able to face yet. Cleaning windows and the ceiling fan in the kitchen are chief among them!

Asparagus: Nope, you got it right. You are not missing any abbreviations. Thanks for the good wishes. I'm in need of them! It has me freaked for some reason. The doc says it's only going to take 5 min. We'll see.

They are making me fast from midnight until after the procedure at 2 in the afternoon. Talk about being in a b!tchy mood by the time they finally give me something to eat!

Karen, I had to google the d&c. Oh it sounds scary and I don't mean to be ignorant but I hope they are putting you to sleep for that???? I'll be thinking of you....

Lauren, I had to look up your foot problem too....I hope you find something that helps it.

Shelbysmom, that is alot of driving. Did you haul the boat back all that way? Must of been a great deal?

Ladyburchett, welcome. Ive done the elliptical at the gym and I must not go very fast because after 10mins I only burn like under 20 calories. :(

I tried to take a nap when I got home from work today and ugh the dh kept calling and the dogs kept me awake.

Hope everyones having a great day!

Hi girls,,,

Just popping in for a quick hi...can't belive how busy I've been since Cady started preschool, and at night been watching the news recaps about the economic mess...ugh. Hopefully they can get things hammered out. Looks like we'll all be living a little leaner over the next few years, though, if what they're saying is true.

Hope everyone is well.

Karen, good luck with your procedure...I had one a few years ago, didn't get knocked out. I would recommend it if they allow it. Hope everything goes smoothly.

Hannah, hope you are feeling better!! Glad you are enjoying your holiday!

Alicia, good luck with your interview tomorrow. What kind of job is it?

Okay, hubby is calling. Kids need to get to bed soon too.

Have a great night!

SBD Sass, I felt the same way about the elliptical the first time I tried it, it felt like I was on an alien machine, but now I really like it!

I have a bad cold, and a sore throat, so I'm going to go back to bed soon, but I'll check in tomorrow! (Oh, Sweet Baby Jesus, this cherry Neo Citran is revolting!)

KarenK, if you can take a few tylenol before you go in, it takes some of the 'pinchy' away. Good luck, my dear!

Hi ladies,

I hope you all had a good day...
SAS- I hope you do well tomorrow
Lois- I burned over 350 calories in 40 minutes and I wasn't going very fast:?:
I'm not sure if that is considered good or average. I'm saving for a machine of my own.

Good night to all. I will check in tomorrow after my fitness class.
