We had a private room, DH left the hospital 3 times from the time I was admitted until I went home...twice to take care of our cats at home & once to get take out.
I was cathed. Couldn't pee otherwise, started being painful, so I consented to the cath. They removed it when it was time to push. I actually needed another cath hours later. I still didn't have feeling, started feeling pain again in my bladder, tried using a bedpan several times with no results. After almost 8 hours after delivery I basically insisted to the nurse that I wanted to be cathed because I still had no feeling, but could feel pain & pressure of my bladder....
I was given it at 39 weeks because they thought I had pre-e & were going to induce me the next morning. Turns out I had no pre-e, so I refused the next morning when the pit was brought in & went home. Everyone told me I'd be back by that night because the cervadil "would do the trick." Now, it didn't. I didn't go into labor until over 2 weeks after & even then it was induced with pit, but everyone at my doctors office & the hospital was shocked that the cervadil didn't...
I've heard something simliar before sadly. I visited a girl I knew in the hospital, she changed her new sons diaper & announced to everyone in the room, "God, I can't wait until they get around to making this thing not so ugly!" then ranted that she couldn't believe they wouldn't circ until the the baby was going home instead of the first day he was born.
Personally I'd go. At 40 weeks a car ride was nothing for me though. And I don't think 90 minutes is far at all. We lived further than that away from our family my last pregnancy & were making random trips through the end of my pregnancy. Now, if I woke up with contractions that day I would be less likely to go, but otherwise I felt fine to travel. I'd do the same now, I kinda am actually. I'm going an hour away for my cousins little girls birthday party the day...
The prognosis for the baby, as long as nothing changes over the next few weeks he's being monitered, is fine. The only real special treatment the baby would need is an ultrasound to be sure the 2nd kidney isn't a pelvic kidney, which we were told isn't likely since they also saw no bloodflow in the area but they always check for it just to be sure. The perinatologist said it was something our ped would set up after birth, nor should a specialist be needed unless our ped...
I'll spare you the long version of this story, but yesterday we randomly found out at 35 weeks at an ultrasound we only had at the last minute just because we wanted to see if we could get some better pictures of the baby than we already that from the 20 week scan that the baby we're expecting has unilateral renal agenesis, meaning his missing a kidney. As if finding that out isn't hard enough, turns out it was found at our 20 week scan but for some reason it wasn't in...
We are suppose to just be able to tell HR & that be that, they just need the birth date. We were told that by the HR lady & even the insurance booklet I read said we only needed the baby's birthdate to add him. But turns out, last time around, we had 60 days to produce a social security number for him to actually add him to the policy to give him retroactive coverage from birth (we had a hospital birth, so the kooky change in info they wanted had nothing to do with...
My pubic bone feels as though it's just getting ready to shatter into about a million pieces anytime I'm doing anything but laying down. Sitting isn't too bad usually & adjusting can help it stop, but standing or walking? Don't get me started. That is all, I just needed to tell someone I was miserable besides DH who gets it, but at the end of the day has no idea how this hurts. lol Last time around, I didn't have anything like this. Once I was about 40 weeks I...
Why were you denied for Medicaid? I'm just curious, because depending on the state it's rare for them to deny any pregnant woman so I was hoping I could give you some advice in that department because I use to work at social services & sometimes people are just denied in errors of paperwork & sometimes it can be hard to take care of if you aren't aware of it, just because they are so busy & it's hard to get a real person to deal with, as much as I hate to admit...
