  1. Hi I was on Google looking at articles on women who paper thin uterus and came across this page and saw you commented that you were told this and were expecting a baby ( I know the post is old from 2012 lol) but I am curious as to how your birth and all went ? I had my youngest 3yrs ago and while on the table cut open my doctor pulled my bf to her and showed him my insides! lol told us while showing him you see this her uterus is paper thin I would strongly advice y'all not to have any more babies. If I did it would come down to a life and death situation choosing between me or baby ... My bf would LOVE to have 1 more since together we only 1 child but i have 3 from a previous ( 6yr old boy & 5yr old twin girl's) I am good with my 4 but i would like to give him 1 more baby. .. (Sorry for all the extra unnecessary info)

      Thank you Medicmom2.0 .. I would be terrifed for something like that to happen and really glad to hear you & baby are good . . I honestly don't really want anymore but my SO really wants ONE more baby I tell him EVERY time he tells me that I don't want to be put in this serious type of situation. I have 4 kids already and couldn't imagine leaving them behind because I wanted to try for one more baby feels selfish to Do . He thinks after a few year's I should be good but that's not how it works some men just don't understand! I was doing some reading & research that there is ways to thicken your uterus but still makes me nervous if we were to try it get pregnant and then it be high risk. I've been in that situation with my 1st having to have emergency c section it was scary even thou i was so calm (odd iknow) thru it all everyone around me rushing me to operating table then being on table and feeling doctor cut me open I freaked out. They then gave me something thru I've and later woke up and had already my baby and with my twins I was high risk since I was carrying momo twins and I'm very small petite person . . I just can't do it but I also would like to give him ONE more because he does just have one child that's his . I've been so lost | confused as to what I just turned 28 on the 27th and if I do have one more i would like to have it before I'm 30 year's old so it only gives me 2 yes really just 1 year n few months because I would like to have him/her before I am actually 30. Ughhh I don't know what to do!? 😪😭 I would just feel like a shitty and selfish mom if i do decide to try for one more and succeed then it turns into my worse NIGHTMARE! and I would HATE to have to choose between me or baby as much it would hurt and break my heart i would have to choose me and then all that would of been for NOTHING! 

       .. ( sorry for the LONG reply lol its just been on my mind a lot and he literlly just brought up the top again last night. He tells me he wants another baby at least idk 2-3 a week! )

      That is one of the most selfish things I've heard. He would put your life at risk so "he" can have a baby. Really? How about a surrogate? There are other ways of having babies other than putting your life at risk.

      If he wants another baby so bad and doesn’t care that it’s lifethreatning to you and the baby, I would tell him to have his own baby or find someone else to have a baby with.

      I have no patience with that kind of selfishness.

  2. Our insurance won't cover aba therapy even with the diagnosis. 😞 we can barely afford the one hour a week for speech therapy. He def has the oral motor issues, and he was also diagnosed with specific motor function disorder (or something like that) by an OT. And it all sounds terrible on paper, but everyone in my family thinks he's a completely normal six year old. 🙄
  3. Sadly, he can not recite verses. I gave up months ago bc it just wasn’t happening. He can’t even recite the alphabet, or sing the alphabet song even though I’ve sang it to him literally every single day since he was a toddler.
  4. I need help picking curriculum for my just-turned 6 yo son. I know this is a classical forum, but im definitely not limiting suggestions to classical if something better fits him. 😊 I’ve stressed over this boy for years, and I feel like I need to get a plan and put it in motion. Quick history: last year I had him evaluated by a psychologist and after spending literally five minutes with my boy he said, “all the questionnaires you filled out point to autism, the speech and language evaluations point to autism, and the vb-mapp done at the autism center points to autism. But this boy is too social to have autism.” So, I needed to get a second opinion, but instead I’m just trying to get him what he needs. I purchased the ablls and am also reading Teaching Children with Learning and Behavioral Problems. So I’m hoping to put an educational plan in place to teach all the skills he needs, but I also need a program or curriculum to guide me. He is good at math. He picked up addition facts on his own just by doing a rod and staff workbook. He seems to be beyond k math, but I don’t know if I should focus strictly on phonics/reading, or if I should also be working on math at his pace. My main need right now (i think) is which reading program to buy. He knows most of his letter sounds, but it isn’t super quick recall like it should be. He really has to think about most of them for a few seconds. He is a visual learner, and probably needs hands-on/movement type of stuff. It’s hard to get him to sit still for five minutes (unless he’s playing Minecraft 🙄). So, I guess my question is what reading and math programs will work for a possible HFA/adhd struggling learner? And I’d really love to throw in something fun like science, history, or bible. I want to feel like we’re “doing school” instead of me just showing him a few flashcards and asking what sound the letter makes.
  5. I’m following the Keto diet. I’ve lost 17 pounds since May 6th. It’s the only time I’ve stayed on a diet more than three hours. Lol. I’m not sure if it’s the diet, or the fact that I realized just how much weight I’d gained. I stay below 15 carbs and 1200 calories most days. Breakfast consists of bulletproof coffee. The only way I stray from the plan is with my Diet Coke.
  6. I made an appointment for Thursday with our pediatrician. They said she won't diagnosis, but she'll do her evaluation/screening and then refer me to someone. So, I need to prepare to go into her office with just the right symptoms, stories, and reports for her to take me seriously. Any tips on how to "present my case"? Should I just hand this list over: Developmentally: no waving, babbling, or imitation Speech: speech sound disorder, didn't speak until he was 2 and a few months Language: vbmapp showed"deficits requesting help, information using wh questions, and requesting things requiring a yes or no response. Requesting info using wh questions was non existent... Deficits being able to talk and hold a conversation with peers. Didn't not speak to his peers during play or at the table, and when a child would talk to him he would not respond... Deficits listing multiple items in a class, describing locations, and answering questions related to a sequence of events." Problems with time concepts, always talks loud, chews on his shirts and fingers. Hyperactive IQ test while in the low-average range showed an 11-point discrepancy between verbal and nonverbal. CELF-5 showed below average scores in word structure, word class, and pragmatics profile. Conners early childhood BEH-parent form showed very elevated social functioning and atypical behaviors. Childhood rating scale-2 indicated "mild autism spectrum disorder", primary concerns in emotional response and relating to people.
  7. After reading old posts here and other blogs and such, I was trying to figure out why people always wait years before getting started. I guess wanting the diagnosis before the child starts improving makes sense. I had never really thought about that.
  8. My insurance doesn't cover ABA therapy, and I hear there's a 10,000 person wait list for the waivers available. And state Medicaid is dependent on household income, so we wouldn't qualify. So I'd rather start now and just pay for it so he can get the help he needs.
  9. The ABA therapist told me I should at least ask for a copy of the ADOS screening sheet. To see what he marked off and such. He said he can't believe the evaluation report was barely two pages long. Tomorrow morning I'm going to call and get a copy of the actual test and then make an appointment with my ped to refer me to someone for second opinion. But for now the therapist is getting back with me for a time to schedule the ablls. Our goal is for him to perform the assessment and then teach me to teach my son in the least amount of visits necessary. At least until someone else is paying! He said the vb-mapp clearly indicates my son has deficits. If it walks like a duck... Did I mention the CELF results? He scored below average in the subtests word structure, word class, and pragmatics profile. For whatever that's worth. She also noticed and added goals for answering WH questions. We start language therapy Thursday.
  10. The behavioral therapist is board certified that came to my house today to discuss ABA. The one that did the evaluation was a psychologist. Wait. The ped can diagnosis autism?! Mind blown. I didn't even talk to the ped bc we never see her and I just thought she'd refer me to a psychologist.
  11. Yes I'm getting more upset each day I schedule appointments knowing that insurance won't cover them bc I have no diagnosis. Yet the reason I'm making the appointments is bc HE recommended them for my son--social skills, speech, language!! I may call him up and see if he'll reconsider testing again. ?? That will be cheaper than starting over. Or do I need to cut my losses with him?
  12. I'm not done reading your response, but I want to quickly say before I forget again...he sent me home after the first appointment with three separate questionnaires that I mailed in. He said in his final report that those questionnaires actually TESTED POSITIVE (or however he said it) for mild autism!! Yet, bc in five minutes of observation my son was social he determined him to not have autism.
  13. He is actually a BCBA. I'm just getting used to all the letters. Lol. He said he has extensive training with the vbmapp and ablls.
