I am still looking around and doing my research. I donno if I should just sign up for this plan, it would start april 1st if I sign up now. But it all just sounds like a gamble. I hope the new Mother Child HC law goes into effect Obama is pushing. Cuz then insurance companies can't deny you for being pregnant. I looked at all the plans thru the government and we make way too much. Funny how u can make too much yet still can't make enough, how does that make sense? I read all these horror stories online of women in this situation, one didn't get to see a doctor til she was 7 months pregnant. Then she finally got medicaid and the hospital treated her like crap all thru her delivery. Yeah cuz you want that situation to be even worse then it already is. I looked into midwives but all the ones I see in the area are linked to hospitals, so I donno if it's an option to get to them without the hospital. I guess my next step today is to call the two hospitals in town and ask what kind of packages they offer for uninsured mothers to be. My friend had a good idea to take a job as a TA at a local school for the insurance, who knows how long that takes to kick in. I feel like I am surrounded by all these scales and none of them are reading anything clearly or non clearly for that matter.
My eating has not been all that terrible. Through the stress, I am turning to exercise to make me feel better. I came home on Monday all mopey and I could have sat on the couch and felt bad for myself. But I went to water aerobics and spent time with my friends and felt better for doing so. Everything in life happens for a reason, right? Sometimes it's just really hard to see that. Scott got his job and quit his old job yesterday. He went in the night before and cleared out his desk. Thinking he would get a week off work cuz they wont want him to stay. Nope they took it really well and now he has to work 2 weeks with his old boss giving him crap, he is thrilled!
