I am in desperate need of your help in funding for my upcoming C-section and here's why:
Last year, January 2022, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy via emergency C-section delivery. It was a really scary journey for me as I have suffer from panic attacks. The journey that got me there wasn't all that fun as well, I didn't went through that beautiful pregnancy journey. In fact, mine was very challenging.
2013 Pregnancy journey: I had my first born with my abusive ex. During the entire pregnancy he didn't want the child and was very abusive verbally and physically. When I was 8 months pregnant his parents reached out to me. I was very young, clueless and jobless. I don't want to relive it again long story short they made me gave up my child to them. I had an emergency C-section delivery where I almost died. When I woke up I remember doctors pressing blood out of my belly and seeing blood on the bed and floor. My ex mom treated me like I was a machine delivering baby. That entire experience gave me PTSD up to today. My traumas are mostly because of it. My worst trauma is being afraid of someone else taking my child away from me again.
2022 Pregnancy journey: During the first trimester, I suffered from extreme morning sickness up to the 4th month of pregnancy. I was losing a lot of weight as I couldn't hold any meal down. Drinking water was even a hassle for me. My morning sickness was running 24/7. I was also working non stop in a very toxic environment. My bosses didn't really care about what I was going through and would give me random extra jobs or insist that I work till night time. I couldn't quit because I needed the money to fund my medical bills and upcoming delivery. My husband was juggling 2 jobs too while taking care of me at the same time. Just after I thought the morning sickness was over, I ruptured my coccyx and had to experienced the most horrifying pain for 2 months. I also had to undergo physiotherapy for the entire 2 months which made me fork out more of our savings. At the 8th month of pregnancy, the pressure at work was beginning to pile up more and more. I was depressed and crying every night. I was tired most of the time and felt like giving up every day. It got so worst that my husband finally asked me to quit my job.
I suffered from PTSD, anxiety for a very long time. I guess it is also what prompted a very difficult pregnancy journey.
2022- 2023 Pregnancy journey: About 3 months after I gave birth, I found out that I was pregnant again. The first thing I did was cry. I was terrified and scared. I just had an operation months ago and my scar was still healing. I went through the same horrifying morning sickness for 4 months and this time everything was different. I now have a baby to care for while taking care of myself. My husband was constantly working to keep us afloat and he does all the house works too. I didn't have much energy this time and my scar was constantly hurting. My whole back hurts and I couldn't hold my breath longer. I was just extremely exhausted. The doctor told me my scar was swollen and that because I just recently had a C-section, I would have to be cut open again. I could see the worried look on the doctors face every time he took a look at my scar. Now, I'm having all kinds of thoughts. I'm afraid of what will happen and I'm more terrified knowing that we do not having any more savings to fund our medical bills. My husband got laid of last year and is currently working as an uber driver. We are barely making ends meet and we have a lot of pending bills. This pregnancy leaves me no choice but to see a specialist and I'm terrified of how the delivery is going to be. All I can think of now is to gather fund to just let me have a smooth delivery considering everything. I have not even gotten to buy my baby stuff but we are really struggling. I need help and I'm in desperate need of it.
Here I am, asking and seeking for your kind help. To help me fund this operation. Me and my family would greatly appreciate it. It would mean the world to us.
Small donations make a big difference and I really hope anyone would help me reach that goal by the end of this month as I am due to give birth on the 13 March 2023. Please help me, help us.

Today was really not a good day. Aside from thinking about getting donations and loan. I wasn't able to move. I'm incredibly depressed and I check my gogetfunding for any funds or notification every 15 minutes. I can't sleep and I haven't been eating well. I told my husband I. . . . .

Had my weekly check up with my doctor today. Me and my husband were trying our best to get some income to pay for our doctors visit. I would need to pay between $50-$100++ per visit depending on the follow up/test. I just checked with the hospital that the average. . . . .
