Louisa, I've been on WIC since I was pregnant with my now four-year-old. Depending on the area you live in and how busy the office is, appointments can take up to two hours, so be prepared with something to do to pass the time (it's a lot of waiting, then labs, then meet with the nutritionist, then waiting, then possibly meet with the breastfeeding counselor, then waiting, then receive your benefits and your next appointment (which will possibly be a class that you can take online instead of having to take one in person)). They've never asked me for any proof of pregnancy at either of the offices I've gone to (like by taking a test there or by asking for a letter from my care provider or anything). When you have your baby, you'll call right away and they'll want you back in the office within a week or so to change from the pregnant meal plan to the postpartum meal plan (and breastfeeding, if that's what you'll be doing, which is more food and for longer than just a postpartum mom).

Thank you! I've never been on any type of public assistance and I'm quite hesitant, but hearing that the appointments aren't that terrible helps. I'm in NY, land of rules and extra paperwork and they won't even see you unless you guarantee that you'll be bringing a letter saying you're actually pregnant.

Yes, it's set by the federal poverty level and calculated from there. For a household of three (my husband, me and the baby in utero) it's $36,612 per year.

http://www.health.ny.gov/prevention/nutrition/wic/income_quidelines.htm here is a link to the NY limits, and I'm pretty sure they're the same in every state.

Today's random worry is "what if I have an ectopic pregnancy"?! I have no specific pain or any indicator that this might be the case. I've been reluctant to have any u/s screening done at all prior to 30 weeks but i'm starting to think that I might lose my mind if I don't have one at 8-10 weeks to see a heartbeat and to confirm that the pregnancy is viable. from my research of the literature I've found some evidence that ultrasound, as well as Doppler, can harm the baby so it's a hard decision for me - can I justify a small yet existent risk to my baby for my own peace of mind? If something is wrong or does go wrong I will of course have an ultrasound, but if things progress normally it would be purely for my own sake.
Has anyone negotiated this dilemma successfully?

I did a lot of research, and there's no definitive proof on either argument.  I've read more issues about bad techs doing the scans and readings

@badwolf092087 human error is a huge factor in women getting bad news or other wrong information from scans. A friend of mine got put on bedrest because a new tech did a crappy job measuring her cervix and measured it longer than it had ever been even with previous pregnancies and at the next scan the doctor freaked it because her cervix had shortened so much from one scan to the next.
My midwife does all of her own scans, the only time they don't is if it's an emergency and you go to the ER, so i'm fairly reassured that human error and inconsistency won't be much of an issue. I'll have to discuss the whole scan situation with my husband as well, I wouldn't have one without his input and I'll definitely be asking the midwife at the appointment, which, sigh, is at least a month away.

But my momma cat didn't make it. I'm feeling like a horrible momma myself... My panic attack didn't ease up at all and my breathing became all messed up. And then I started having sharp pains in my lower abdomen. So I went to the ER. I Had the worst IV ever given to me. My left arm is still not able to move well. They didn't hydrate me for almost 3 hours in case they would need to operate. They did EKGs, had me hooked up to a heart rate monitor and did an ultrasound. The positive- my little muffin is doing well. When the ultrasound tech was doing her thing, he was literally wiggling his/her butt and doing tiny karate kicks. That was the only reassuring thing. And of course, muffin's strong heartbeat. The problem is they discharged me without figuring out the breathing issue and the stomach pain. Their logic was (without asking eve though my answer would have been no) to do a cat scan and an X-ray. And because I refused pain medication. The doctor was rude and told me my pain must not be an 8 or 9 of I won't take pain medication. I explained why and she kept telling me that while that's fine and all, she couldn't do a thing because of the road blocks I apparently put up.

So now I'm home in bed, still have breathing issues and my stomach still has sharp pains. They gave me zofran for my nausea, even though I didn't want it. I'm waiting to hear from my OB and see what he thinks. :/

I'm sorry about your cat. The whole incident sounds like it was incredibly scary and the doctors sound like they treated you terribly. I had a panic attack once and it is really hard to relax enough to catch your breath afterwards. I also had a bad experience with an IV that left my arm completely bruised. It is great to know that your baby is doing so well though.

I am wary of ultrasounds, but for me, I believe the benefit (peace of mind) to be greater than the (unknown) risk. 

 

AFM, I no longer feel pregnant. I am fairly certain that my symptoms last week were due to a virus. I did get a blood draw this morning. I should call for my results.

@NSmomtobe, I'm starting to think that my peace of mind (aka my sanity) may be worth getting an ultrasound. After all, I firmly believe that my state of being effects the baby and if I'm a ball of nerves nobody is better off for it.

You're right on your state of being effecting the baby. My miscarriage in December, I fully believe the stress from my SO's exwife at the time which caused me to lay in bed crying for 2 days. Within the next two days I was bleeding and having the miscarriage. It's why we are all told to relax and don't worry. Stress on us causes undue stress on baby.
AFM, I'm STARVING right now so SO and I are heading out to get some bad for me grub from Huddle House. Hehe... Preggo craving satisfied soon 😁

I had an ultrasound at 11 weeks with DS and that was the first time I really realized that I actually did have a baby inside me. I had been in denial up to that point.

 

AFM, my hCG from yesterday was 111,788. This is right where it should be for 8 weeks! :thumb

As a side note, with my last pregnancy, my level was 26,000 at 7 weeks and 20,000 at 9 weeks. My doctor tried to tell me that was normal, but obviously it was not.

I'm sorry if this is gross, but I absolutely DETEST vomiting. I cry. Seriously. I hate it so much. It has only happened once so far, (this morning), but if it happens again, I'm going to take something. Just can't do it. Yuck.

Maybe see if the doctor can prescribe you Zofran?  I have it for the "just in case" moments.

Today has been a better day than Sunday was for me.  We had the follow up with my OB regarding my ER visit the other night.  He gave us 2 after hours numbers to contact him in case something happens again.  Turns out my panic attack brought on the stomach pain more than sneezing or coughing does.  He said the pain is "growing pains" since the baby is so active in the womb and growing at a faster rate.  Little muffin is big!  So it's causing my body more pain and stress.  As for the panic attacks, I've been given a small dosage of Xanax to get me through things.

 

Seeing muffin rolling around in there today (even though it hurt!) was relieving, especially after the hell the ER put me through.  And it wiggles and waves.  Hubby got all teary eyed because he felt like the baby was waving at him.  So now we can both relax and ease up, and hope that my panic attacks slow down.

Ok, i'm officially done POAS. Used my last FRER today. Here's my 14-20 DPO FRER progression. I think it maxed out on 18 DPO, the test line didn't really get much darker after that.

Hopefully everything is alright. Have whoever you're with emphasize the fact you're pregnant and fingers crossed that it helps. First things we are taught in med school is if a woman says she's pregnant and either cramping or bleeding, she takes priority. Unless there's some kind of car pile up.

Best of luck.

Yeah... Waited 2 hours just to be put in a room...
Thank you for the prayers Bad, edub, and dmarie.
I did get good news! Baby is there! Measuring 7w3days which is SPOT ON for my LMP... Even got to see baby's heartbeat and yolk sac! HB was at a strong 155!
Thank you again ladies! I was so scared because of my MC in December I didn't want to risk it!
Yay!!! So relieved! Now I can go home and curl up next to SO who stayed home to watch DS.

I'm glad you got good news! I spent a day in ER for one of my previous pregnancies, and I was so not a priority that it took 6 hours to be seen. The doctor refused to give me an ultrasound but decided to blood work instead, so I had to wait another 2 hours for results. They were not good. At least I got an ultrasound after that. BTW, I was back the next day bleeding out from miscarriage and my priority rating improved considerably. I was admitted immediately from triage.

 

Did you figure out the reason for spotting?

I had another doozy of a dream last night. The kids and I were in Mom's backyard, playing, but Josiah was tiny. He looked and acted like the 16-month-old that he is, except he was about the size of a bee. I found him and smiled at him, and he grinned back at me and started crawling towards me. I put my hand at the edge of the sidewalk so he could crawl into it (since just crawling off the sidewalk onto the grass would be like normal-sized Josiah crawling off a roof). Then when I was holding him, a sore appeared on the side of his head and two tiny snakes crawled out. Like the eggs had been inside his head and they hatched out of his head. Okay, then.

BTW, I was back the next day bleeding out from miscarriage and my priority rating improved considerably. I was admitted immediately from triage.

Did you figure out the reason for spotting?

They couldn't figure out why I spotted. They did find 2 cysts on my left ovary. They measure about a centimeter each. I knew of one because I was told about it when my son was delivered via c-section 8 years ago. One I them is new and the other didn't grow any so I'm fine. I knew I had endometriosis. They said it could have just been one of them that ruptured bc there was no hemorrhaging at all they could see.
I'll add a picture I took of the ultrasound monitor. The blob to the right is baby's yolk sac and baby is on the left.
@Harmony96 I completely understand the weird dream thing! My biodad has been gone since I was 12 and I had a dream he was alive and I was hanging out at his house. I've NEVER dreamed of him before... Thankfully they are just dreams.

Thank you again everyone for your concerns about me and baby. I really do appreciate it.

So glad everything is okay Maof1. :throb What a scary night! But what a cute little bean! ...I can't wait to hear our heartbeat :love

 

I've had really weird dreams too... of the sensual kind. *awkward....* :Sheepish

 

5 weeks 6 days and I am (still) nauseous, but refusing to throw up. It is my least favorite thing in the world and I will hold out for as long as I can... so far I am living off apple sauce and water. My nose can pick up all sorts of gross smells... not too fond of that. I had to move all the candles out of our bedroom because I can smell them even with the caps on. I also am having a hard time sleeping and am always warm. Can't wait to see what rest of the pregnancy holds if I already can't sleep ;) hehe. Not.

 

On another note: I would really love a girl, but just have this feeling that this little bean is male. :kid
