Cheers to what my new job will be as of...tomorrow...

Me with my BeBand & all are going to be selling my body downtown to pay for this bebe, because our insurance... Ya, it's pretty much worthless.

Ok, so I'm not really going to become a prostitute, but for reals; I about had a heart attack when I found out what our maximum out of pocket is for our insurance ::drumroll please:: $4000 big ones ::faints, then dies:: And that's not including my $1000 individual deductible I have to meet before they'll even pay 80% of medical costs. Are we screwed? yes. Is it worth it? HELL YES.

I guess I should be thankful that we even have insurance through my husband's work, but my goodness; do they make us pay enough??

Cheers to an expensive (but worth it) 9months.


  1. Yikes! But you're right, it's totally worth it. And you're right, but thankful that you have insurance at all!

  2. It is worth it. And thank goodness for insurance! Poo though on all the money you have to spend:(

  3. I know the feeling! I have insurance through my work because my husband is self employed and it pretty much sucks! But, the little bundle of joy will be all worth it!

  4. Holy crap! That sucks balls. My insurance covered EVERY LAST DIME. Literally... we paid not 1 cent for my whole pregnancy including the delivery/ hospital stay!
    Poor laur... but yes it's worth it!

  5. Oh my gosh, I'm sorry you got that news! It IS worth it though, and somehow it will all work out. I'm scared, I haven't even found out about our insurance details yet...

  6. Heid, WHAT in the WORLD kind of insurance didn't make you pay any out of pocket?! I am SO jealous & really mad that we are getting so screwed.

  7. I think that really sucks. I am sorry! We lucked out w/ great insurance. We paid $250 for everything -- all 9 months dr's visits, hospital stays, no deductibles, etc.. That's it. Almost makes me want another one right now. Well, not really.

    But, you have a great attitude. It is definitely worth it. It's worth about a million times that. Needless to say, the day you give birth will be amazing.

  8. I stumbled across your blog this morning and have been looking over some of your past posts and adore your site. Congrats on a baby on the way. I am (brand new) newlywed and love hearing baby stories. Just became a new follower and wanted to say hi! Happy Saturday.
