The (medical) Costs of Having a Baby
This is a post that I have been meaning to do for a while. Perhaps I am a bit masochistic, but I checked out the total cost of my prenatal and delivery medical care. This doesn't even include Liam's care in the hospital, just mine.

I should mention that my pregnancy and delivery were completely uneventful. The only items on this list that are unusual are the Rhogam shot (only O- blood types get this), the ultrasound for growth (because my belly was measuring a little small) and the ultrasound for low fluid levels (I told them my water broke, but they didn't believe me.) I could have opted not to have the epidural, though the cost was the last thing on my mind when I requested it.
