Do you think it's wrong for me to feel differently with this pregnancy?

Okay every child is a gift but I wasn't really expecting this one. I was on the IUD for almost two years and 6 months before I became pregnant I wanted it removed. They refused she told me if I wanted it removed to see another doctor because I got it for free and plenty of women want it and cant afford it. Now Im preggo and this is a very difficult pregnancy for me. Im happy but scared because of the stories Ive heard about babies born with the IUD. What advice can you offer?

  • Ive been to the doctor already it came out but on a couple of forums a few women still had children who had problems due to the fact of when they took it out and a whole lot of other stuff. Being that I was still on the Iud and prego they have put me on bed rest and declared this a high risk pregnancy and also now I have a lot of extra doctors appointments and also can you imagine trying to be on bed rest with a 2 and 3 yr old running around all day. were on schedules but hey nap time don't last forever

  • Maybe you can have friends and family come over and help you around the house until it is safe
    for you to get out of bed. They can take turns

  • Hey guys I have an update..The iud is out but it was a broke one it came apart and that was never supposed to happen. The baby is fine. I feel so much more relieved and happier. Im taking my vitamins and preparing for my final addition. My new doctor says that I may be able to sue but i don't care about that as long as my baby is fine thats all the repayment I ever need.
