I had my first OB appointment and all the initial blood testing between my OBGYN and my neurologist (my arms can prove it!). I am due April 4, 2017 (the bonus of having Clomid, Ovidrel and timed intercourse, being able to determine due date sooner). My first ultrasound is August 29th.I have like 3 free magazine subscriptions coming plus signed up for the Everyday Family and Enfamil Family Beginnings since my neurologist says I can’t breastfeed. I have a hospital tour set up right after my first ultrasound and a second one a few days later since my doctor can deliver at two in the area. I’ve checked with my insurance about my deductible and I’m glad I did too because the office had it wrong and listed it has two individual deductibles and Highmark BCBS doesn’t so most of my deductible has already been put into so it might take a load off the $1,500 the labor, delivery, ultrasounds, etc will cost. I asked them about testing but I have to get their diagnosis codes to find out what can/will be covered or put towards my deductible. I have to call them on Monday to find that out. Since the baby is covered for 31 days after birth, it will give me enough time to contact the people for CHIP because Alex and I make the bare minimum that can be covered. I just hope they will cover it because he and I have insurance through his employer but we wouldn’t be able to adjust it until the following January. I’ve been adding and changing things on my registries a while now but what will stay and go is bound to change shortly.

Three more weeks and I get to see my little peanut (or peanuts)!
