I am equal parts excited and terrified. I am so glad to finally be going because this move has been in the works since August and one thing or another has delayed it. We are all looking forward to be together with DH again and I am really looking forward to not covering up my belly and hiding it from my mother. My goodness maternity clothes look good right now! I am also really excited about the birth center I contacted in San Antonio. They seem really laid back especially when I mentioned on the phone that I had no intention of doing the glucose test or any other testing, nor had I ever had any of it. I am a little nervous that before my first appointment I have to give them a $400 deposit and am supposed to have the balance of the birth paid off by 36 weeks (which is like 8 weeks away from my apt.) but the midwife laughed and said that with the insurance I have of it covers what she thinks it covers I will only owe them around $350 so in fact they will have to re-imburse me $50...that made me happy. I also think I found a natural family doctor who can see all of us (I need to call and verify they do newborn care) and the practice is all DOs who have massage therapists and accupuncturists on staff. Also found out that DH's new insurance covers chiros. Hey, a girl can get excited about this stuff when she has been jonesing for an adjustment for months but can't foot the bill.
I am very worried about moving three kids, 2 dogs and 3 cats (one of whom is ancient and has gone down-hill in the past week), and all our stuff to a new city, finding my way around, adjusting the kids to a new environment, finding stores, etc., all while 6.5 mos pregnant.
So, the reason we are able to move is that I was talking to my dad (the only family member who knows I am pg) and mentioning how I was going to have to sell all our stuff, pawn jewelery, etc. to try to come up with the money to move, and he says "Doesn't the company pay for your move". I say "yes, but they re-imburse so I have to come up with the money upfront". He says "that's bullshit, just use my card and pay the bill when you get re-imbursed. I am not having you get all stressed by this and selling your stuff so you can get your family back together". Sometimes my Dad is just so cool.
