And I'm really nervous!!! As I mentioned in one of my previous posts I had a really bad experience with them last time so I'm kinda freaked out.
I'll update when I'm done there. Wish me luck!


****Update: We qualified!! The lady I saw today was the polar opposite of the lady I saw 2 years ago. Very sweet to me and fantastic with DD. Even when it came to the finger prick for the iron test, my little girl didnt even cry because the lady was so sweet to her about it and very kind. I asked her if I could see her at every appt and told her that the last lady I saw was really rude and it made me nervous for today's appt. She apologized and said she'll put it in my file that I only see her. So relieved!
And I had no idea just how much we'd get! Holy wow!!!! This is going to seriously help us save on our food budget, and thank God!!!! We really needed it.

You need a lot of patience when you are dealing with WIC.  Just don't let them get under your skin.

Thanks. Im afraid they'll ask me a bunch of inappropriate questions like last time. I dont know how to handle it if they do.

What were they asking? They never ask anything unusual but every office is different.

I would simply say "I'm not comfortable answering that question."

Last time we had wic the lady grilled me on how we could afford to fly to see dh's family and when I told her they bought the tickets it turned into how could he afford time off, who was paying for parking at the airport all kinds if stuff. It was awful. She made me feel terrible for extended nursing, it was just a mess.

That is none of their business!! Where do they get off with asking these kinds of questions?
