Im also very sorry about your best friend (dog) and hope that all your hopes and dreams come true. Also hope the belly pain eases up some or you find some pain relief till after baby comes. God bless you and your family.

I am so sorry to hear what you're going through...and all at once. I have no words for your father. It's good that you and your mom can be together during all this though. As for the breast feeding, I used to feed lying on my side on the bed because of an episiotomy cut they gave me during my daughter's birth. That way there is no pressure of the weight of the baby against your stomach because she too would be on her side up against you on the mattress.
I believe that God can work miracles even in the most difficult situations and I will be praying that you and your family are able to find the right solutions to all your problems.

Well to start off I found out I was pregnant February 28th. I wasn't expecting it because we had tried in June and July but then I went through a horrible hormonal imbalance that prevented the pregnancy. We did not want to try in the early months of the year because we didn't want another birthday during the holiday season as we already have a 4yr old Nov 14th. So there I was staring at the positive pregnancy test in disbelief, but hey it happens right?
So after getting through the sock of that, my dog of 12 years started limping very badly. I took her to the vet and we tried every medicine/pain killer but when she could no longer get up it was clear to me what I had to do. I never thought my heart were strong enough to do what I did. I loved her just as much as people live their children, relatives and best friends. I had her since I was 14 and she was always there for me through out all of my teenage and young adult years. She was the best dog you could ask for, smart, protective, obedient and especially loving... I couldn't bare to see her in pain, to see her whimpering and knowing I could do nothing to help her so I made the appointment. On March 9th I saw her wag her tail for the last time. A huge piece of me died that day and I don't think I will ever get it back.
I got through the days with the help of my parents, fiance' and my son. We have all lived together after a family tragedy and planned for my fiance, my son and I to move into our own place now that we have a new baby coming. So my parents were to be getting their own place as well but then my dad came forward 2 months ago to tell me that he was seeing someone else. I made him tell my mother and since then have been living in this awkwardness. My mom is always sad, my dad is always sneaking around. So in a month he is leaving her for good to be wit this other woman after being with my mother for 36 years. My father is the main breadwinner and my mother only works a part time job which only pays 9.50 hourly, so now she will have to stay with us.
We have been struggling to find a house to buy in our price range of 50,000 to 70,000. We want to live in a decent neighborhood and we have to go through FHA so the roof, windows, electrical ect. must pass an inspection before they let us move forward. It takes forever for banks to get back to us and I am really starting to panic. We need the new house before baby comes because our lease will be up in our home for rent that we currently live in.
With all of that aside I have had this lump above my belly button for quite some time. I noticed it after I had my son November 14th, 2007. I thought it was just my uterus not fully contracting or something. It never bothered me and after be examined by doctors they had never said anything about it so I figured it was common after giving birth. Well it has tripled it's size and has become painful. I got it checked out and they said it is a hernia and that I will need surgery to repair it. The bulging and pain is because my intestines are coming through a tear in my abdominal wall. My growing belly is making it worse and it is getting hard to do regular day to day activities such as sitting up, bending, lifting (even light things) or even laughing. I will have to have the surgery pretty much right after I have the baby before medicaid drops me. Medicaid drops pregnancy medicaid one month after delivery and the surgery will be 10 - 15,000 dollars that I do not have. My problem with all of that is I have my heart set on breastfeeding and they say I won't even be able to hold her after the surgery for about 2 weeks!!!!!!!! I feel like everything is happening all at once and my depression is leading to bad eating and weight gain!
All I want is sour hard candy, chocolate with caramel and cheesy stuff. I am not even a soda drinker and I drool when I see a coke! I don't know what to do.......
