Hailey Elizabeth and Ryan Nicholas

It turned out to be pretty good! I went in at 9 yesterday and got off at 2. Went to Sean's office for the first time and had a late lunch with him. It was nice to have a half day. We were really slow and there was nothing to do and I was supposed to be off any way so they let me go. After lunch, I came home and took a nap and did some things around the house. We took Allie for a walk at the park. We also picked a boy's name - Ryan Nicholas. YAY! We are very pleased.

We got the payment plan for baby from the OB. It is 470 a month for the next 6 months and that includes everything except for circumcision (another 250) and if I need any other ultrasounds besides the 2 included in payment plan.

Sean is off work today. I have a long day.

Yikes! That is crazy for the doctor bill! Does that include any of the hospital stuff or just pre-natal care and stuff?
We are getting out pretty lucky I guess with only having to pay my doctor around $200 after insurance but our deductible so far with the ultrasounds and ER visit and everything is up to like $1000. Normally our MAX would only be like $1600 out of pocket at all but since Joel’s plan is a yearly plan, in January, when I’m due, we’ll be starting back at 0 so we could end u paying another $1600. Ugg. Insurance $ux!! This is why I wouldn’t be too heartbroken if baby was born a little early in December, tax deduction and save mom and dad another $1600! LOL

No, that includes everything - doctor and hospital. All doctor visits, 2 ultrasounds, and labor and delivery as long as it is vaginally. Any extra ultrasounds would be a little more and circumcision would be more. Well, I guess I don't feel too bad now. It sounds like even with insurance, it pretty much stinks and a lot has to be paid out of pocket. Thanks for making me feel better!

Well, I take it back! Learned some more yesterday and oh yah it is a little stressful! Lots o money!

Becca said...

LOL yeah that seemed really really really cheap to include EVERYTHING. I'm just hoping that we don' thave any complications later on for baby sake and for pocket's sake, but i did just find out that my short term disability pays me only $150 less than what i would normally make working, so i am PSYCHED about that!
