But I probably should go back and see her for a few more adjustments before the baby is born. I do feel better when I see her and I do sleep great afterward! I know it's especially important in this last trimester to get things aligned for childbirth. I'll add that to my list of calls to make tomorrow!
I feel you on the financial piece....I am a little sad to see our savings account go down down down after we worked so hard to build up a nest egg....but I guess that is what it is there for. The hospital coinsurance will be our biggest expense....like $2K - $3K for a vaginal delivery! Plus $500 for a doula...$300 for childbirth classes....plus plus plus! I guess I just have to trust God will provide! My husband just started a new job too, but thank god is doing really well so far....still it is commission based so that is a tiny bit stressful, but I am ok with it now. I think at the end of the day it is the best thing for our family, and honestly I feel like in life any sense of security we have can crumble at a moments notice b/c you never know what can happen.
