They're Always After Me Lucky Charms.

Oy. I've been anxious to post this one for some time now, but wanted to give the world and all its money hungry medical giants ample time to send me all of its bills.

HOLY CRAP IT IS EXPENSIVE TO HAVE A BABY.

Seriously, if you're out in the world having frivolous, unprotected sex, get yo' self some birth control ASAP. Unless you're trying to have a baby, and then by all means, carry on and prosper! Unless, of course, you don't have health insurance...then GO GET A CONDOM!

Let's review the numbers, shall we?

- Bill from Anesthesia Associates - $2,222.00 (before insurance)
- Bill from OBGYN - $257.00 (after insurance...they only show that portion on the bill...I can only imagine what it was without it)
- Bill for Alex's care - $3,601.61 (before insurance)
- Bill for my care/everything else - $14,896.82 (before insurance)
TOTAL cost (minus what I don't know from the OBGYN) - $20,977.43

All I can say is thank you, corporate job, for your insurance. I complain about you a lot and actually rarely enjoy being inside your 4 walls, but today I actually appreciate you and all you are.
