Someone asked about my job and getting time off. Luckily, I am not in the classroom right now so I can actually go to doctor's appointments! That has been really helpful since I've had a million appointments! This week, I am taking a personal day on Friday and Monday. I also have tons of sick days saved up (that I will be using for maternity leave), so I'm covered! Work is actually a nice distraction! I don't think about things too much while I'm at work, so that has helped. Not sure how it will be next week though.
I've actually been ok so far this week. I think it has helped that I know the decision we made was the right one for us. Doesn't make it easier, but I'm not a wreck like I was right after the consult.
I did call the peri today to see if I could get some meds to take before to calm me down. Not sure he'll give them to me, but we'll see. I know I'll be very nervous before, so it would be nice to be able to relax a little and not have my heart racing.
