Hello- I am 12 weeks pregnant today, and do not have health insurance! Was wondering if any one else has or is having this experience and has any advice on seeking prenatal care without the financial help from an insurance company? We are planning on having a home birth with a mid wife anyway, so I know that cuts down on cost quite a bit. But Im still worried about not being able to afford testing, Dr.'s appt., etc.
Also, I have gained 10lbs already and everything that I have heard and read says that during your 1st trimester you should only gain 2-5 lbs. Im not eating any more than usual and stick to healthy organic foods so Im confused as to how Im packing on so much weight. My husband is being very supportive, but Im feeling self conscious. Please Help!View Thread
