1. The girls in my class are being eeeevil to each other (rather, two have banded together against the lone other one). I'm so angry about this that I can't even talk to them about it yet.
2. I have a really bad cold - usually, I go to bed miserable and wake up in the morning somewhat refreshed and ready to take on the day. Today, I woke up with a headache. And my eye sockets ache. And I burned my tongue on my tea. And also, I'm sitting on the couch and letting someone else take care of my Mean Girls today.
3. Insurance is still being nutty. They HAVE TO have me go to an "initial appointment" for the pregnancy at the hospital. I'm sure this USUALLY makes a lot of sense: the blood work and pap can all get taken care of there. In MY CASE, however, it would make more sense to send me to an OB with the records of the blood work and pap that were done at my initial prenantal appointment in October by my old doctor. This seems completely impossible.
All of this wouldn't upset me so much if they hadn't given me an appointment IN FEBRUARY. My next prenatal appointment was supposed to be scheduled for the end of DECEMBER. So basically, they're making me miss 2 appointments. And the all-important what-kind-of-equipment-does-it-have ultrasound won't be done at that appointment, which means depending on how busy the OB is, I'll have to wait another month until I can get a regular appointment there.
NOBODY on the insurance side seems to be concerned about this. HMO bastards (etc.).
So, what do we learn from all of this? Never change horse mid-stream. Or rather, don't change your insurance half-way through your pregnancy.
4. I can feel the baby move now. A lot. It doesn't seem to enjoy the laptop resting on my belly so very much. Puuuushes against it. Cute.
