Owen is a month old today! I had my 4-week postpartum appointment and everything looks good, yay! But I'm definitely not in any hurry to have sex again.

I had my 28 week appointment today, and everything looks great! I've gained another 4 pounds for a total of about 18 (16 according to the Blue Cross program I signed up for), and my blood pressure was 108/70, fantastic! I met yet another doctor today, the one I originally went to see, and she was extremely nice. She found Owen's heartbeat right away, and because he's getting bigger, he wasn't able to run away from the Doppler this time. I go back in 3 weeks, which I thought was kind of an odd time, because I thought I'd be going every 2 weeks at this point.

At my appointment, I also got my RhoGAM shot, fun. That thing actually hurt, and I'm pretty good with needles. When I got the box out, the nurse looked at it weird, and was then shocked to find out that there were 5 syringes inside. I was only supposed to get 1 syringe, and the stupid ass pharmacy charged me for 5! That explains why it cost me almost $700. I guess they have to order them in boxes, and they gave me the entire thing, because apparently, they NEVER fill prescriptions for RhoGAM, which I find a little hard to believe. The nurse and the doctor both thought it was total crap that I was charged for the entire box, so they wrote a note to the pharmacy asking them to take back the other 4 and reimburse me. Here's where it gets fun.

After my appointment, I dropped Steve off at work, headed home to find the receipt, and drove to the pharmacy. I gave them the box and explained the situation, but they tried to give me all kinds of crap. They told me that I agreed to pay for it. Well yeah, I agreed to pay for it, but I didn't know that I was paying for FIVE syringes, when I only needed ONE! No one bothered to tell me that when I gave them the prescription. They tried paging the pharmacy manager, but apparently, he had just left, and won't be back until next Friday! Gee, that's convenient. What are they supposed to do if they have a real emergency and need the manager for something. I called Steve to let him know what was happening, and he was pissed. So when he gets home from work tonight, we're going back to the pharmacy. Wish us luck, though I doubt much good will come of it. Steve is usually really good about dealing with people when he's angry, but he was really pissed on the phone, so I hope he can control himself.

Bang bang!

It's construction day :D! In Owen's room, there is this extra door that is used as a shortcut to go from his room into the laundry room. Considering this house is only 1048 square feet, we don't really need any shortcuts around here, so we're having it walled off. Plus, we need the wall space for the furniture. The contractor came this morning to frame the doorway, and the drywall guys just got here to hang the drywall. One of the guys is outside smoking, which I'm slightly annoyed about, because I don't want him coming in here, smelling like smoke and stinking up the room (no offense to my smoking friends!).

Because the wall in the laundry room (the other side of the wall from Owen's room), had wainscoting and wallpaper, it all had to be taken down, so now I have this big ugly wall, and I'm not sure what to do with it. The other walls in the laundry room all have the same look, so it looks like we'll need to redo the entire laundry room. Hopefully that's not too large an undertaking, and considering that it's a small room, it's probably pretty easy. I just don't know what I want to do.

In other news, I got to deal with my lovely, useless doctor's office again. I called on Friday to get the results of my lab work and my glucose test, and they said they'd call me back within 10 minutes. It was nearing closing time, and they never called me back. Nice. So I called again today, and they ended up calling me back within about 5 minutes. I passed my glucose tests and my labs looked good, yay :D!
