Well, if you will only be about 4 months, then you probably won’t be showing. So technically, you could still keep your date.

As fas as insurance, I would call your local health dept and ask about state insurance since you are pregnant now. OR, maybe call Planned Parenthood and see what they say?

 

Oh, and congrats!!

Well Congratulations!  Even if it wasn’t what you were expecting!

You live in Texas I see (if that’s correct), you need to go to you local Women’s Health Clinic… They have an “insurance” (it’s technically medicaid) for women through the state (it’s not a planned parenthood, although that might work for you too), it works on a sliding scale, but depending on how much you make you might not have to pay much… And they should cover you.  You just have to fill out a form and bring in your last two pay stubs.  I’m not sure where the nearest one for you is but there is one in Fredericksburg.

Here’s the link to their site: http://www.hhsc.state.tx.us/Help/WHP/index.shtml

Good luck!

ETA: Just saw on their site that you might not be able to get that exact thing since you are already pregnant, but talking to them might be able to point you in the right direction!

Here’s some Texas links to places that might be helpful http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/wrtk/use-directory.shtm

@Kym080412:  maybe you were foreshadowing?? but good call on your part! And if you are already “involved” with a seamstress, or can find one, you can also find out how much it could be let out, if need be. 

I think if it were me, I would just keep the date. You can read Mrs Dumpling’s recaps, she was a few months pregnant when she got married, and was still able to wear her dress

Congratulations!  Go and get a prenatal vitamin with folic acid.  That will be the main thing (aside from drinking lots of water) that you will need to do for the next 4-6 weeks. 

Best of luck with the insurance 🙂 I am certain they have options for someone in your position.

First off – Congrats!

Secondly, you’ll need to get on a prenatal vitamin.

I can’t help much on the insurance front but o0olibelulao0o seemed to have some good Texas resources and if nothing else, Planned Parenthood should be able to help oint you in the right direction as well.

Congratulations! Pregnant woman can qualify for medicaid if you make under a certain salary. There’s a lot of appt’s that can get very expensive, so you’re going to want to act as fast as you can to see if you can get into the system.

Were you going to be able to get on his insurance once you got married?  If so, any chance of you guys getting hitched in the next couple days and adding you on his plan ASAP?  If you haven’t been to the doctor yet, the new insurance would probably cover the pregnancy…  just sayin’.  You could still have the big August wedding for friends/family but you’d have health coverage, too!
