First off, start taking prenatal if you haven't already. You really need to be seen by a doctor to make sure you and your baby are healthy,
You can sign up for Medi-Cal at the doctors office. This is no charge to see the doctor. Or, if they don't have that option, call your county office and sign up. I did this for my last pregnancy. And you and your child will be covered for 1 yr. After that, you just re-sign up.
When I found out I was pregnant with my son, I was in shock and disbelief. I remember running out of the restroom and showing my DH the test. I was in tears! I was so happy. We had been trying for yrs and just never thought I would get pregnant. I was only 3 days late and had a test on hand and thought, 'what the hell,. I'll just take the test to just see - I was so sure it was going to be negative...This was on Thanksgiving day 2010 - I think I took a HPT about 10 times to make sure, I told everyone that say day I was expecting!!
For this pregnancy, I found out at work. My friend was doing IVF and she was in the process of taking the meds and getting ready to be implanted. I thought I was just feeling 'symphony' pains because of what she was going through. I was late on my period but thought b/c I just had a baby 8wks ago, I my cycle was off a bit. So, on my lunch, I got a test just to ease my mind about being pregnant. I took the test and I saw the 2 pink lines come up right away! I cant remember walking from the restroom to my desk because I was in such shock. I actually cried a little just because I had a 2 month at home.
But after the shock, I so was excited!!! Not only was I blessed with 1 beautiful child, I get to have another. Its still kind of scary knowing that they will only be 11 months 11days apart, but I couldn't be happier!!!! I have a little boy and now have a little girl on the way. LIFE IS GOOD!!! View Thread
