Yep, Harley, I guess I've got fraternals. And as for the cure to moodiness, I have discovered it, in fact! It's called...wait for it...SLEEP!

Chez and Harley, your new avatars are adorable. We have some cute little winter babies!

Chez, I was on a progesterone-only pill (Microgynon) and despite the fact that it was supposed to be fine while breastfeeding, I think it may have contributed to my milk supply drying up, so I got off of that after using it for less than a month. However, I never had break-through bleeding. In fact, after stopping it, I had my long 50 day cyle with no period. Stupid BC.

Thank you girls, I do have to agree and think I will go with the progesterone. Seems like the more logical choice. I just don't like the idea of going on BC pills and anything I was reading online seemed like it messed people up more than they already were. Even my best friend that has never been pregnant but switched to a different BC pills said don't do it. She said they always mess her up!

I will most likely go down to the office tomorrow or Monday to get my prescription. Depends on if I have time tomorrow.

I talked to DH about it but he just said "whatever you think is best", Ugh, guys sometimes!

Chez and Harley, your new pictures are super cute! I need to put up a new picture of Sam now that its winter but I am just so in love with his pumpkin picture! He looks so cute!

Chez, I also have "white coat syndrome" to some degree LOL. I always have high blood pressure at first and they have to retake it like 3x to finally get an accurate reading. Although, yesterday I went to get my blood drawn and I was a good girl and didn't even freak out or need anyone to go with me. I was pretty proud of myself. Now a big deal for some but I totally freak out sometimes and need DH to hold my hand.

Haking, I hate getting my blood drawn! I always come close to passing out (although I haven't yet!). Last pregnancy I was getting my blood drawn at one point and I came so close to passing out that they helped me to the waiting room, and made me lay down on the floor with my feet on one of the chairs and put a cold wash cloth on my forehead. It helped, but I sure felt silly laying there like that!

Awe, Spiffy you make me so much less silly now!

I am such a baby, when my little man had to get his finger pricked to check white blood cell count and they keep squeezing his finger to get the blood the sight of it and me holding him while he was screaming had me so close to almost fainting one of the nurses had to come in and grab Sam from me so I could lay down and they put cold wash cloths on my forehead and made me drink apple juice! So embarrassing!

And once, I did pass out after a OB-GYN appointment! With my gown on still! My mom was with me thankfully and she covered me up before all the nurses rushed in.

I'm fine with having bloods done, and jabs. In fact, I quite enjoy it! It's the "people coming near me" bit I think I dread. As soon as that blood pressure cuff is out, my BP hits the roof... I need to be put to sleep at the dentist for a simple filling because my head shakes real bad!!

Chez, I wish they would put me to sleep for fillings! I hate going to the dentist! (I actually have to go today, and I'm not looking forward to it...)

Haking, I can't watch when they give my LO shots or prick her finger or heel or whatever. I also had to lay down after they pricked my finger to check my iron levels! In fact, I can even one-up all of that...I almost passed out on a subway in Germany because my friends were talking about having their blood drawn!

Yea, I really think that all the whole blood thing gets into our heads too much! I thought I was gonna be so scared to have my son but actually I wasn't nervous at all. Even when they told me I needed to have an emergency c-section!

Guess when it comes down to it we can do anything but sitting there and thinking about it is a killer!

You know what's funny? Childbirth was totally fine, except for the part where they had to put the IV in! They couldn't find a good vein, so they had to poke me about six times, and in the end they needed the anesthesiologist to come do it. I'm embarrased to say that I was crying by the time they finally got it in.
