I am sorry you are going through this mama. I know it's not for everyone, but you know some mamas just have their babies at home with their husbands and have AMAZING results. If you are not high risk the odds are most certainly in your favor for a healthy, natural, normal unassisted birth. Have you considered a UC?
thank you so much for responding. Just hearing kind words from other mamas makes me feel better. I am trying to keep a brave face on because I don't want to worry my DH or DC but its hard. I am a "plan" girl. I always gotta have one.
I don't know what a UC is but it sounds interesting. I would love to deliver at home but our tub is small and DH is really reluctant. I want to do this as natural as possible. Reading some of the birthing stories had me crying this morning (not hard, a book mark with a witty phrase has me whimpering)and I love the idea of just having a relaxed natural birth.
I think you're right, divorce does add up. I've spent about 30k on mine and I got our daughter but ex doesn't have to pay back child support till 2014 because his new wife is going to med school which I think is unfair. Plus they cut what he owes by 12k.
Anyway, I'm still going to try medicaid and see if I can get help. I don't know how people live off of the system and it doesn't make them crazy. Gathering all that stuff is a full time job
Well I am off to work but I'll check in tonight to see what you guys have to say.
Thank you so very much
This makes me so angry!! How can you be living in a country with so much wealth and not even know how you are going to be able to give birth to a child. It makes me want to cry. At least in Australia, Canada and the UK you can have a baby without worry about how you can deliver it. Public heathcare may not be perfect but it is a HUGE step in the right direction. BIG hugs to you and I really hope you figure it out.
