Dh is self-employed. He earns over 200k, before taxes. After paying taxes, paying for our insurances, (health, home, business, car, life,) and putting away for retirement we have 15% of his income to live on. We pay 100% for everything. Pedatrician visits, dental check-ups, emergency room care, optical care,...it all adds up so quickly.
We'd love to have another baby. My last birth was an emergency cesarean and cost us 14k. It's hard to see how we could afford that again, right now. We need a savings plan just to get pregnant.
