Later that day my legs were getting weak and almost gave out and I started to get blurred vision, ok I thought I'll just sleep it off.

  • I did go to the doctor and the baby looks ok, but we really cant tell til Im further along. The insurance company has been calling me nonstop, and they are trying to see how much I will get for my settlement, and I am just curious how much other people in a similar situation have gotten...I know that sounds greedy but I have a toddler and soon another baby to take care of. And I also have to be in ALOT of pain for 8 months so I think I deserve it. I forgot to mention I had to quit work because I cant lift my arms to do hair cuts any more....the doctor says I will never be able to go back to a salon....
