  • I'm anon 6:06 - I guess I had pretty crappy insurance then with my first. But, that was an emergency c-section. The bills just kept coming and coming...there was no end to it. When I added it all up it was around $39,000/$40,000!! The second time around we were not expecting to get pregnant...we were trying to prevent one and ended up on Medicaid since my hub's had lost his job. We're wanting another and from the looks of it our new insurance should cover a good portion of the costs...I am praying they do!! We cannot afford what we ended up with the first time around!!
