My pregnancy with Joseph our last baby was very complicated. We had an individual plan which does not cover pregnancy so most expenses were out of pocket. At 12 weeks I started to have bleeding and I had to be monitored constantly through the rest of my pregnancy. It was scary. The doctors thought I would lose my baby. During delivery my heart rate dropped to 29 beats a minute. All the medical staff rushed in and had my husband and I sign forms and were unsure if I or the baby would make it. Joseph's heart rate was dropping fast. I was given a shot to boost my heart rate and I got up to 35 bpm. I was able to give birth but my placenta did not deliver and had to be removed manually to stop the bleeding. I than stayed in the hospital for three days and met with the cardiologist. I have been diagnosed with bradycardia and most cases they put a pacemaker in but I have not received one yet I just deal with the symptoms due to the huge medical debt. We have been making payments but need to get out from under this debt. On top of the heart diagnosis I also have hypothyroidism.
