Ok before we get to the weekly update I promised people a glimpse into my first hormonla breakdown of this pregnancy. I was really good my first two pregnancies, if I cried it was probably over food ;) So this one took me by surprise and apparently by the look on the pharmacy ladies face at Wal Greens, I caught her off gaurd too!! HA I can laugh now and feel free to laugh at my expense but I could NOT stop sobbing the day this took place.
So I was low on prenatal vitamins and I needed to run to the store so I thought I will stop by WalGreens and grab a bottle. My Dr. called in a prescription for me so I went to pick it up. When I pulled up and gave my info the lady confirmed that I was picking up prenatals to which I agreed and she scanned them and looked at me and said that will $94 ... NINETY FOUR DOLLARS. Yes you read that right. I was like, Wait...what?? She repeated herself as if what she just said was completely justified. We have pretty good insurance so I asked to make sure she had my insurance on file, to which she said yes and they are saving you a lot of money they are normally $170!!!! WHAT!!!! Literally the tears were forming in my eyes, really nothing to cry over, but I could not stop them. So I thought, its like a 9 month supply...surely. I asked her how many day supply is that, she looked at me straight faced and said THIRTY DAYS. 30 days?? Like 3-0 ... she said yes. Que the flood gates. Like uncontrollable tears as I said, does that sounds as dumb to you as it does to me??? She said, soooo do you not want them? By that point I was uncontrollably crying. I was even telling myself to just stop crying, it was nothing to cry so hard over but I just couldn't stop.
So I drove home to tell John how hormonal I was and how crazy the pharmacy lady was and her SUPER HUMAN prenatal vitamins. As I started the story John looks at me and said, so you didn't get any prental vitamins??? que the angry hormonal flood gates once again!!! I laid in bed for atleast an hour crying my eyes out. After my hour cry session I felt completely normal again and in control of my emotions ;)
**I am happy to report I was able to go back to Wal Greens today and successfully got prenatal vitamins and they were only $13!
