Thanks ladies! Yes I'm pretty sure there was a pregnancy related issue but also a money issue. They gave me a lot of excuses that were complete BS, but I can file for unemployment. The thing that sucks is that was our only income. DH is a full time college student, he will graduate in May thank God. But I still have to do something before then. He could get a pt job but then we'd never see him with his school hours. I had a hard morning, but I've been working on my resume and trying to stay positive.
@mrscate88 thank you!

DH and I are going to a funeral today to pay respects to his godmother's father. MIL texts me this morning to tell me that I need to ask my mother if it's okay for me to attend a funeral while pregnant.I don't know why, but that just made me start crying. I just feel like I've lost autonomy over my person and that I've ceded my identity as an individual. Everyone has something to say about what I should or should not do or that I need permission before I can do things. I just keep thinking about that article about that lawmaker who said that once women are pregnant, they are just hosts. That's what I felt like at that moment.
AW: So excited!! After a bunch of seizures last year, DH was not allowed to drive for a year!! Well, the year is up, and we went to buy him a new car today! He's so happy, and so am I!
@mrscate88 I'm so glad, although it stinks that they refused at first because the other driver was at fault. Insurance policies can be such a headache.
@alcrimmins @chiquita928 Yeah, I'm sure there is a Chinese superstition about it. But the fact that MIL ordered me to ask my mom for permission really irked me. I'm an adult. It's one thing if I'm superstitious about it. I'm clearly not. Why do I need permission to see if someone else's superstition prevents me from doing something?
