: My daughter-in-law, hereafter refered to as Sue, claimed to have had a positive pregnancy test last July.
: She and my Son, hereafter refered to as Lee, are poverty stricken with no insurance which they have used
: as an excuse not to be going to the Doctor. We have been told that the baby was due Feb 25 all this time.
: We have the usual things all along like "I Crave"--"up all night from discomfort"--"baby kicking"--etc. You
: all know what I mean. We have pressured them recently as due date approched to get moving with a
: doctor. URGENT BUSINESS you know.... Yerterday 2-25, Sue said the doctors office told her she had
: had a miscarriage in September when She claims to have spotted blood but couldn't afford to go to the
: doctor....There were no subsequent periods... Not only does she say they told her it was a miscarriage
: but now she is 10 weeks pregnant.
: I have heard of plenty of miscarriages and I thought that if an incomplete miscarriage occured that a
: D&C would be nessessary. Is this girl lying or not?

Grandpaw- First if she is 10 weeks pregnant they wouldn't do a D&C. Second, thank God she did see a Doctor. Maybe with this one she will keep going. Some states provide insurance for low income families during pregnancy and for the child until a certin age. Check the local Health and Welfare office. I have heard of women after miscarring countinuing to think they are pregnant and show the signs too. I don't have first hand knowledge of this but you could check it out with a Doctor (an OB might be best). Last thing if you are giving money to them and are concerened for whatever reason that they may be taking you for a ride-you can pay the Dr bills yourself and not give them any cash at all. I wish you the best and hope you have a grandchild soon.
