Wow, thats overwhelming to have to sign up for child care that early.
Well, as I dont have insurance, and DH and I are both self employed so our insurance would be outrageous, my steps are as follows:
Pregnancy test at the health department (after 14 confirmed hpt's) to confirm pregnancy for insurance. - DONE
Applying for Medicaid- Tuesday
Calling my OB to tell her Im pregnant- DONE
My first appointment wont be until 8-10 weeks. I only want an early ultrasound for one reason: I had a dream that I was giving birth to twins. I have a 14 month old. If I am pg with twins I want to know ASAP. We are going to have to be making some serious adjustments to our lives if there are two in there. My OB has had twins, so she is always looking for them. Im not sure when that ultrasound will be, but I dont want to have the first one if its guarenteed that she wont be able to tell. (basically, I dont need an ultrasound to confirm the edd. SInce I know when I conceived, and when I ovulated (two days apart) I am fairly sure of my edd. Hers would probably be earlier anyway).
Ive been spending as much time as DD allows researching what I need to read, learn, get, be prepared to have a UC. I will be seeing my OB throughout my pregnancy for concurrent care, but I plan to give birth at home, with just DH and another mama here to help.
We have only told two people, and one of those is someone I know IRL that is part of MDC.
