I would never call myself superstitious but I just couldn't bring myself to post before now. I started a couple of times but then I would delete my post thinking, "Nope, not yet." Well it's time... I'm pregnant. I'm now in my 25th week. If you are familiar with my family you will know that I started couponing a few years ago to save money after our budget became very tight following my son's 14 week premature birth. Things are currently going very well. From weeks 5 through 18 I was somewhere between light bed rest and strict bed rest. I had to have surgery and had extreme nausea which caused some very bad hypoglycemic episodes. My husband has been the main grocery shopper and is doing a fairly good job saving money. Though for a bit it was fast food/ delivery for us. That was a hard adjustment for me because I knew how much I could make that money stretch at the grocery store. But something had to give. But I'm able to be a little more active now. And it is a huge relief to be this far along.
I want to give people encouragement when dealing with insurance companies. Know your policy and fight things that you feel don't make sense. My husband had 4 ER visits in 4 days two day before I found out I was pregnant. Between the two of us we had over $15,000 in medical bills within two months after insurance payments. We read our insurance coverage and questioned certain payments. In the end we now owe less than $4,000. From daunting to doable. And think of how many groceries I can buy with $11,000. lol
