Well I had my OB appt today...got to hear the baby's heartbeat! She said the rate was in the 160s-170s, which of course is great! My weight was 117 and BP was 110/60.
The bad part started when we were leaving. I was going to make my co-pay, and the receptionist said I had a balance and needed to go to Insurance and they would explain it to me. Turns out I have to pay the Dr's office around $600, and it needs to be paid up by my 7th month. WHen she figured it she said I need to pay $96 a month when I go to each visit. I said I could only pay $20 today b/c that's all I had budgeted for and I didn't know I had to pay that much in that short period of time. Plus when I turn in my pre-admin to the hospital, they'll set me up on budget billing and send me a coupon book to make my payments with, and if I remember correctly from Issac that'll be at least $400. So, I think I'll try to get on Tenncare/Medicaid again. It'll only be secondary so it's not liek they'll hafta pay it all. And it's not like we're being lazy and taking advantage of the government...I'm sure there's lots of people out there who are just too lazy to work and have it...at least Jerm works. I just hate going to DHS though...people there are so creepy.
And another bad thing happened today. We were at ILs this evening for grilled chicken, and Rach was stansing next to FIL's truck when Jerm noticed wasps flying around there. He told her to watch out and right after that a wasp stung her! IT got her underneath and to the right of her right eye. I don't think it got her too bad though, as it didn't swell too much. We put hydrocotisone and ice on it after it happened. Thank goodness she's not had a reaction!

Alot of people use medicaid even as a secondary for pregnancy. You qualify regardless of income if you ar epregnant. I woud if it was going to cost me that much after my ins.

Glad you got to hear the heart beat!! That is always so exciting!

I'm glad you got to hear the heartbeat. I hope you can get the costs lowered. I believe everyone has a right to proper healthcare regardless of their ability to pay.

I hope that your finances work themselves out. Good luck on getting Medicaid. I'm sure you'll get it.
