I've posted a few times about my cousin:
Well she revealed today that she's pregnant with a little boy. That's great and all, but she hasn't been seeing a doctor because she basically said she's been too stressed out over her house situation (see above links) to worry about doctors.
This is what she posted:
"Okay everyone, this is huge news. But liam is going to be a big brother. We found out today that its a boy!
Yes, Im that far along. We found out late but wanted to wait for the first ultrasound to tell, then around that time the thing with the house started and we were so unhappy and depressed our main goal was to get moved and get settled so we could be happy about telling such big news.
We couldnt focus on anything but trying to find a new place and we've been dealing with that since december.
Weve been through alot the last 4 months and noone will ever understand what we went through and the heartache we felt when we first found out we had to yet AGAIN move from the place in royston when we thought we were going to be buying it in a few years.
We just couldnt tell anyone in the midst of all that, honestly we didnt even have doctor appointments through it all because we were to stressed out to think about anything other than all that. We waited so long that we decided to wait until we found out the gender so thats why we're telling today and We just wanted to be settled and ready to tell before telling and it just wasnt right until now. We couldnt be happier."
She posted a bunch of ultrasound pictures from today and showed that the baby is a boy, a face, etc.
She said that the baby is measuring at 2 lbs 4 oz so she's in about her 24th week, right? I asked her how far along she is, but she ignored my messages. I know she saw them. Plus she's been posting other stuff after I asked.
Time to vent: Why in the HELL didn't she go see a doctor before now? From a few of her other posts about the baby, this is her very first ultrasound and doctor visit. What. The. Hell? She said she didn't go because she couldn't focus on anything but the house. Sorry, but your child is more important. Plus it takes just about 3 hours out of the day to go see a doctor. That wouldn't take any time at all away from house hunting. Seriously.
Plus she should have been getting her smurf together financially. She's saying she's known she is pregnant for a while, and she has been complaining about not being able to pay bills and smurf, but she goes out and buys all sorts of crap she doesn't need. She goes somewhere all the time, every week. Places like monster truck rallies, Six Flags, places like that. She should have been saving her money!
Ugh, I could go on, but I don't feel well.
