Bella, I know what you mean about wanting to shop,its so frustrating waiting to know!

We also dont mind what we get, already got 2 girls and a boy, but this pregnancy so similar to my sons.

Thats cool that everyone says its a girl, how are you carrying, I heard high was a boy low for a girl

I'm feeling pretty good. Just so very tired!

Bella- I know what you mean about shopping! I keep wandering in the baby section wondering if I'll need pink or blue!

Anyone know yet what their hospital bill is going to be like?
My friend has insurance (somewhat decent insurance I think/thought?)
When she checked in she paid a $1700 co-pay and they just got another bill for $2800... the amount their insurance didn't cover!

I want to know ahead of time how much it will cost so I'm not surprised/shocked by a big bill and make sure I set that money aside so I don't overspend on nursery stuff etc..

Thanks I just had it re-confirmed yesterday, u/s tech thought it was a boy but didnt stick with it. Had an amnio done due to family chromosome issues and got results back yesterday and confirmed BOY!! and completely ecstatic!

with my first I had a bill for my 1st prenatal visit and it was $6000 for exam and blood work, I dont remember what I actually ended up paying for it but I think insurance covered most of it, if I remember correctly it was a little over $2500

it all depends on your insurance, I am sure you can call and see what they cover and what you can expect to pay. Good Luck Hun

I just talked to my insurance.
I have a $250 deductible which I'm sure I'll have met before May.
I have a PPO but of course its still cheaper to stay in-network.
I am covered for 90% of the costs up to my out-of-pocket maximum.
If I'm in-network, that maximum is $2k
if I'm out-of-network, then that maximum is $6k

So I'm hoping my friends who got slapped with such a big bill either have a high deductible, a high out-of-pocket maximum or were out of network or something like that. I mean hoping that it explains why they paid so much ... because if they should have been covered then I could get similarly screwed, lol!

Either way... WHEW! Lol!
