    Default OMG.. Is the damage done? Did I make a mistake??

    I have had one of the hardest weeks of my life. LONG story short, I'm most likely losing my job. Not only is it terrible from a financial standpoint to lose your job, but the way this has all transpired and being that I have never been through this I am more emotionally distraught then anything. BUT... What are we going to do if we got pregnant this month and then we lose our insurance? How will we see a doctor?? ANd the list of concerns goes on and on...

    I don't know what to even think or do at this point. I'm lost. My last baby is supposed to be the most special and cherished and now I'm terrified.

    I'm sorry about your job! That stinks

    As for insurance, you could apply for Medicaid. There are usually higher income limits for pregnant women

    I am sorry about your job. Did something happen? Are you okay?

    I want to say that sometimes things work out how they are supposed to. I had a really good job until last summer... I left when I was sexually harassed. The hardest part was knowing that my husbands contract was ending soon and then we would both be out of work, but I knew I couldn't go back. So I left. And it was incredibly stressful but it all worked out. Check into medical, etc. There are normal programs for pregnant women.

    I'm sorry. That is hard. Try not to stress. I'm sure things will work out for the best.

    I am sure this situation is a tough one for you. I really hope things work out for the best. You don't deserve this added stress and it isn't good for a developing baby.

    I'm so sorry, Lyndee. First of all, try your best not to stress too much, (I know, WAY easier said than done) but its best in case you have a bun in the oven.

    And from a financial aspect, it wouldn't be ideal, but I'm sure you would manage. You might be able to purchase insurance through cobra, collect unemployment, and/or qualify for Medicaid and WIC. In fact, my sister in law, who had a baby in Oct of 2011, had lost her job mid pregnancy and somehow wound up with no hospital bill. Made me a little jealous since I was still making payments for my 2nd delivery over a year before

    Anyway, I hope it all works out for the best for you.

    What will be will be, and I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. Try not to stress (easier said than done, I know!) I think this just means that better things are in store for you. Keep your chin up, hun!

    **Update**

    You guys are so sweet, and truly you give me so much support I appreciate it. The update is that I quit. I was forced out of the office that I worked in due to a hostile work environment, this office was a 20 min commute for me. Well when I was forced out of my job there, my boss offered me an alternative position in a different office to compensate for the loss, and considering the unfortunate circumstances. However, this location was a 50 minute commute from my home. I just can't drive that far... My car will wear down, the gas money is too much, the added time taken away from my family is just too much of a sacrifice for me to make at this time.

    So.... A back story, I am also enrolled in college courses. I take them online at Western Governor's University. It's a really unique learning platform that focuses on competency not on classroom time. DH and I have decided for me to quit this whole mortgage thing all together, and move on. I am going to work just part-time for now, probably go back to retail. But I am going to really buckle down and focus on getting my degree finished. I am 27 and TTC #3, it's time to get things in real working order. And I have to be able to have the chance to do so. So DH is giving me that, he is going to go work part time as well (On top of his full time grave yards job). He is going to apply at Home Depot because they offer health insurance to all employees- no matter how part time. I have to have it because I have psoriasis which requires bi weekly injections, that are NOT affordable without insurance.

    Any who.. I just thought I would update you guys because I couldn't just dump my baggage on you and then leave you hanging. I think that it's true everything happens for a reason, so I am just trying to stay positive.

    Oh and see my post on the board about TTC. I'm spotting on CD 23?!?! (Deep Dark Red)
