Thank you all that replied! We have decided to stay in TX for now. And we are in a safe, SMALL town renting a house for cheap!
My hubby got a job in Carson. I have NO IDEA where to look. The Dr. he's working with is in Redondo Beach. We have 4 kids, so need a decent size place and neighborhood. He said to look in Torrance, but I've heard mixed things. Any suggestions??? I care most about nice neighborhood, maybe schools (we go back and forth on homeschooling) and things to do with the kids, oh and not too far from Carson (we have 1 car at the moment, hopefully that will change soon)....
Thanks mamas. I still can't believe it! I was a great labor and an amazing moment for dh and myself when she came sliding out into his hands!
I haven't posted in a while, but wanted to come back and let you all know we had a baby GIRL on Wednesday morning at about 4:50 am. She weighs about 9 lbs. She was born after a 20 hour labor (short for me) unassisted. Daddy caught her. After 2 c/s, and a traumatic VBA2C in the hospital, this has to be the most amazing experience of my life and very healing for my family. My hubby is on cloud 9 and I am in awe! I will let you all know when I have the birth story up.

I totally agree!
I emailed my friend and she can't right now. She said it's a pretty crappy atmosphere there right now. : I didn't think of Stephanie. Laura is right, she's an option!

I don't think the thought ever crossed her mind that they might've been the problem to begin with I'm having...

mama. Healing from a c-section while your baby is still in NICU and pumping! You are amazing! I didn't heal as well w/my 2nd c-section. I don't have any advice, but to rest, rest, rest until you can get it checked out.
