So....moving has been incredibly exhausting but well worth it! Our new apartment is really what we need for all of us without being extravagant. I mean really, it is nice to have doors that shut and floors that don't squeak! DH has been awesome with doing a lot of the moving himself. We rented a truck and hired some movers for the big stuff but borrowed a friend's car for the rest. Really cut down on the cost but made for a lot more work.
And...in news that I am not sure how to feel about, my husband's employer is being annoying (the HR department, it is a big place so not an actual person per se) about getting approval for a homebirth. The insurance company has no problem with it but the firm has a specific policy against it. We requested an exception, they said they have never had someone request it so it was unlikely and that they didn't want to be held liable for anything. Blah, really, they just didn't have good excuses and it sounded like they just didn't want to do the paperwork needed. So, next step, we have to request for our case to be brought before a board of people who decide if I get a homebirth based on who knows what. I am trying to be calm. We cannot pay the over $11,000 it would be out of pocket and my current midwife practice is not responding about the possibility of a payment plan option. I don't want to lose my homebirth. I am signed up for an orientation at the birth center just in case and they said they would have a spot for me. I just get stressed trying to figure out when I would get in the car if labor is anything like DS's was. Basically, I just want to be able to have my homebirth with my awesome midwives. Ok, novel over!
Hope everyone is doing well, baby went through a growth spurt and I am starting to realize I am definitely going to be bigger than with DS, really low on the worry list right now though!
