Working During Pregnancy

Insurance Mess!

I was put on bed rest on September 26th for multiple high risk factors. The company I worked for has used Aetna as their health insurance provider for the past 2 years. On 10/25/12 I was asked for my doctor's information (both OB and perinatal specialist) to give to our insurance company for benefit verification. We were switching from Aetna to Humana on 11/01/12 and they wanted to double check that all my benefits would stay the same since I am already 29 weeks. Received a call back from my employer and was told everything was good to go!

Incompetent Cervix

I was pregnant with my second child. We found out at my 20 week ultra sound it was a little boy. At about 23 weeks I began to experience contractions and soon had my baby, a stillbirth. I have been diagnosed with an incomptent cervix. As I had already been pregnant and had my daughter, who is now 9, I had no reason to believe that there was anything worng with carrying a baby the second time areound. I have been told that when I get pregnant again I will have to have a creclage at 10 to 14 weeks. I do want to have another child but, naturally, am feeling apprehensive.
