I wasn't sleeping well at night, between having to pee at least twice and Squishy punching/kicking the living daylights out of me every time I lay on my sides and not being able to breathe if I lay on my back.... I ended up trying to catch up on sleep during the day on the sofa, seemed to be the most comfortable place for me to sleep because the cushions are so big & squishy they just enveloped me.
But the last few days I seem to have found a comfy sleeping position and so I have a bit more energy than I have had for the last few months. I've managed to do 2 chapters of studying yesterday and again today!
I had a dream last night that my water broke while I was writing my exam! Unfortunately that's all I remember of the dream.
We're going to look at strollers tomorrow. So far my choice is the Britax B-Agile but DH came across the Bumbleride Flite (which is supposed to weigh only 14lb without the car seat) so we're going to check it out in person tomorrow.
Neither of my Dr's take medicaid, and I can't afford to pay them as self-pay. :( The other thing that worries me somewhat is, if DH gets a job really quickly (don't get me wrong...I want him to bc we can't even pay all of our bills on unemployment wages) that would then disqualify me for medicaid, in which case, I would have to pay everything out of pocket unless his insurance gets going VERY quickly....and they usually have a 30 day or 90 day wait....if it was 30 days it might would be in time to cover all the hospital stuff (supposing he gets a job very, very quickly!)...but 90 days I'm outta luck for all of it!! Getting a job that quickly is not at all unheard of in his industry, so I'm hoping that's what happens. I'm just trying to figure out what to do about Dr bills if it does happen. The problem is, we will go under much, much faster w/o a job because we can't afford to pay our school loans and we really don't want to have to do back-pay on those of all things. Our school loans amount to as much per month as our mortgage. I think we can cover our house and vehicle, food and gas, electricity and water. All the necessities will still be covered by unemployment + the pittance that I make. But not paying school loans gets nasty fast. :(
It will all work out! The Lord is on our side! :D
And to answer you Maddie, yes we have the option of COBRA, but are weighing out whether it would even be worth it to go with that because it is so incredibly expensive.
Just wanted to say I love you all and I love the feeling of community on our board! :D :D
Feeling sentimental tonight. :D
Home come your feeling sentamental tonight Jana. I love this board also and the women we have come to know.
I got my gift buddy gift tonight after I got off work. Soooo cute.
Jana - We love you, too <3
Lol.. Jana. <3 ya too and all the other ladies on the boards... It's good to have other preggos that are due the same month to talk to. :)
I'm sorry... Maybe talk to Medicaid people and see if as soon as he gets a job if it would rule you out.. I don't know how it works exactly.. My husband makes practically nothing for a family of four so... I don't worry about that :/
Glad you liked your gift Kati! :) It was fun to get some girl stuff... lol. Since I'm having a boy. I just absolutely loved the white onsie with giraffes... I think that's what was on it? I can't remember... darn preg brain.
How did the Stroller shopping go Roxi?
I might bring up some personal stuff that I really need to talk to someone about.... and don't have an appropriate person IRL to talk about it with....
Stroller shopping is still ongoing but we came across a really promising new option. DH is really into all the different specs and stuff. I just want to make a choice and be done with it.
Maddz: you can tell us anything, via private message even...
Maddie yea the white onesie had the giraffes on it. Its way cute. I took more pix then the one I posted maybe will post a couple more. That blanket is so soft and cute. Go ahead and share away and I agree with Roxi either here or pm you know we will all listen.
Good luck finding a stroller Roxi. Ive been through a few but LOVE my double stroller. Its going to be weird not using it or not as much lol
Roxi - I understand wanting to be done with the shopping. There's only so much research I can handle before it all says the same thing. And I'm a research junkie.
Kati - Yes more pictures! Always, more pics =)
Maddie - You can share anything. Heaven knows the rest of us are pretty open. No judgement, only love. *queue the cheesy music*
Speaking of love . . . Jana, how are you doing today?
