Maddie aced her BPP today, scored and 8 out of 8. She is measuring at 4lbs 1 oz and is in the 32% for length and weight. So my C-section for now has been pushed to 38 weeks, 9/24. I am an emotional mess today, my first appointment was at 10:30 this morning. It was to try to get daycare assistance for our twins because I can't take care of them right now being on bed rest. They are in a really good school, but for them both to go, it costs $800/month. However, I was told today that I have been on bed rest for too long and no longer qualify. I have never used any kind of assistance before, even when I was a single mom. Now, we really need it and can't get it. I am on bed rest per doctors orders and I have a medical file 3 feet thick to support this. (I am trying not to be judgmental with my next statement, but I don't know how else to say it)... the people who were there and getting this daycare assistance had the appearance of being total leaches on society. I cried and cried today, because we already have our budget streamlined as much as possible. I am allowed to go from the bed to the recliner to the shower. No cooking, cleaning, driving, etc. The 28th of this month will be 3 months and I have a month to go, it is really wearing on my psyche. My OB is seeing me twice a week until Maddie comes, maybe that will make things go by quicker. Right now, I just want to curl up in my bed and cry myself to sleep...

I'm glad she's doing good! I'm think its wrong that someone who really needs the help can't get it. I'll continue praying for y'all! I wish I had better words of comfort or advise for you . Many hugs thoughts and prayers!
I am so sorry you are doing that and they are taking away your assistance, that really does not seem fair at all. If baby isn't here yet how can you have been on bedrest for too long, it makes no sense at all

Ugh thats so frustrating and I'm sorry you are dealing with that dilemma. There's nothing worse than people that take advantage of free stuff who take it for granted when there are people out there that genuinely need the assistance and can't get it. I hope you find a solution!
That just sounds like bull to me. What a crock of dookie. If she isn't here then obviously you haven't been on bedrest for too long. It just makes me sick how pregnant women are treated sometimes. I could go get on my soapbox about how the whole world would be different if it were men that had babies and not women, but I will stand down for now, lol.
Hugs honey. Maddie will be here soon and you can put this whole mess behind you.
