Question for anyone with scoliosis that has had a spinal fusion…

sobuildmeup-buttercup:

I know someone that had had a spinal fusion, and she said she wishes she wouldn’t have because she’s just in more pain from it. Is it like that for everyone, or do some of you actually feel better once recovered? Also, she had hers a really long time ago, so I don’t know if that has anything to do with it.

I had a spinal fusion and I feel better than ever! And I am much more comfortable in my own body!

I need help.
I need to know what I need to do.
Since I am unmarried and separated I am considered a “single mother”.

What can I sign up for to help me with the baby?

I’ve signed up for food stamps, Medicaid, and my WIC appointment is on Friday.

I don’t know if I can get housing assistance… I don’t even know where to begin to look into that.


Any thing helps!

Also you should qualify for Florida Kids which is really good health insurance for your baby! :)

I’m Gonna Be A Mom!- Week 12

Had my 2nd appointment today! Everything went really well. All blood and urine tests came back normal, blood pressure was good. Baby’s heart rate was 176 today and he/she was moving around like crazy hitting the doppler! :P The only thing is that my midwife said that I need to gain at least 5 more pounds before my next appointment! :) so gotta get to work on that, so happy to know my baby is healthy! :D

Week 11 ?!?!?

Posted by freshlymintedmrs —> This is well written, echoes many of the comments said to me, and reflects my heart about being married “too young”.

'I was married at the young age of 19. Yup, I know. Besides possibly setting a new record, I am also “crazy.” Don't…

Praise Jesus somebody finally said it! I hated all the ridicule I got for getting married at 19!! This woman is beautiful! I love you!

Baby Names

So I forgot to tell everyone that Brandon and I had names picked out for our kids even before we were trying to get pregnant! We always said we wanted 2 kids so we have 2 names picked out for a boy and 2 names picked out for a girl! For this baby is it is a boy his name will be Travis Russell, if it is a girl her name will be Arianna Skye! For our second baby we chose Dallas Allan for a boy and Dawn Marie for a girl! But we are definitely getting more and more excited to meet Travis/Arianna in February! What do you guys think of the names?

I’m Gonna Be A Mom - Week 10!

So I have neglected my blog for the last couple of weeks. I’m really sorry but these last few weeks of my first trimester are kicking my butt! Still haven’t gotten sick but I sure do feel like I am going too! Which of course makes me want to avoid food in general which is obviously not good. :( But my exhaustion is starting to ease up finally! I am so just ready for this sick feeling to go away too! But I have my second appointment (12 weeks appointment) on the 31st so hopefully soon after that I will be blessed with beautiful safe zone of the second trimester!
