Life Lately

I have been getting really lazy about posting but nothing has been going on lately. It's starting to get warmer outside which is great. I planted some pea's a while ago and they are growing(yay!). I have been cleaning all the baby stuff and getting ready for this little one to arrive. I have been searching for months for a little white dresser for Lylas clothes so that I can use the changing table for the new babys clothes, but I haven't found anything decent in our price range so I cleaned out a couple of drawers from mine and Jesses dresser and hopefully that will be enough till we find something else. We are getting anxious to have this baby though we are nervous at the same time. We just found out that an epidural(which my dr said I have to have in case they have to do an emergency c-section) is $550 and we have to pay it before I get it. One night hospital stay is $1900 + $500 each additional night. We still owe the Doctor $1000, we have been paying $250 every appointment to go towards the delivery so we have paid over $2000 already. If we don't pay it all off right away it will cost about $9000 with interest. Yikes I know! I don't know how anyone affords to have kids. What a blessing it is that I haven't had any problems with this pregnancy. With Lyla I had problems and she was c-section(which I have no idea how much that is) and we had a lot less money then we do now but we had medicaid so we didn't see a single bill. Anyways, I was making a poll about how big this baby is going to be and when I am going to have her. I haven't gained as much weight with this pregnancy. My due date is May 12th. They delivered Lyla two weeks early and she was 7lbs 5oz. So everyone leave a comment and take a guess on the weight and time.

I think you will go full term and have everything go well! I think you will have an 8 lb baby (extra weight for the extra 2 weeks!) You look great though, really small. I'm glad that you haven't had any problems!

Just to let you know, our bill was going to be about 5,000 if everything went well and I just couldn't afford that! So, I switched to a midwife at 30 weeks and the total cost for her was 2,000. You might be high risk, though, cuz of the Lyla c-section, so you may have to see a doctor.

That sucks about being forced to have the epidural! It's super expensive to have kids but they are so worth it! Good luck with everything!

I found a really basic white dresser for Kylie at Ikea for $70. IT's a great height to use the top as a changing table as well. Good luck with the end of your pregnancy. I hope the labor goes well! I totally understand, having had my first a C-section, all the thoughts you must be thinking. Good luck!
