How Much Has This Pregnancy Cost You?

Not baby stuff.  Stuff for you.

My break down (others may have different categories): 

Co-pays - $100

Maternity Clothes - Approx $400

Medications (including vitamins) - $200

Pillows - $50

Misc Hospital Bills - $75 (need to call insurance co on this)

Ice Cream - $5000000  :)

At least if I ever get pg again, my maternity clothes are in great shape, so I'll save some money there!

Re: How Much Has This Pregnancy Cost You?

  • My insurance is crappy so $3000, which is the deductible...i think it might be less because of some other things i have had to pay for so far this year, but i do miss the days of working for a huge corporation with amazing benefits, like i had with my dd, although i don't miss the stressful lifestyle:(

    Maternity Clothes- $200 (this is my second though so i had some stuff but different seasons)

    2 massages at $80 each

    maternity clothes - about $100???  Not sure on that one.

    Meds -  @ $50

  • copays $200 (flat rate of $200 for regular OB but may have a few copays for the MFM clinic)

    hospital $0

    prenatals $100? (i haven't kept track but take rainbow light + a DHA supplement)

    maternity clothes $200? again, never kept track

  • Midwifery fee: $1800

    Labs/ultrasounds: $300

    Maternity clothes: $300

    Prenatal vitamins and pregnancy-related prescriptions: $300

    Birthing kit and pool: $100

    We've paid for everything out-of-pocket and without insurance. We're really hoping and praying these are all the costs for this pregnancy--otherwise we're going to have some big bills and some bigger worries.

  • Copays and hospital bills (so far)- $0 (we have amazing insurance that covers 100% of maternity costs)

    Maternity clothes- $0 (I got a bunch of hand-me-downs from a cousin and my mom tooke me clothes shopping for my birthday back in February)

    Nachos- $4000 (aproxamately)

    Pillow- $10

    Vitamins and meds- ~$100? I got a lot of anti nausea meds, my prenatals are not that expensive. I'm only on my second bottle (they're huge bottles!)

    That's about it I guess. Extra in our electric bill for keeping our apartment so cold?

    Medications - $200 This includes a round of antibiotics and all my supplements

    I have insurance that covers 0% of this pregnancy and delivery. We have made a little too much to make the cut off for medicaid until recently so I'm waiting on the call now to find out if I am approved..fingers crossed.

  • Insurance whats that? kidding!  We pay out of pocket so...

    birth center $3600

    ultrasounds $300 i had 3 and they run about $100 each

    OB appt $200 (by law i have to see an ob twice within my pregnancy)

    Pillow $30

    Maternity clothes $100 maybe i still had lots from my 1st pregnancy

    Medications probably around $100 since i got special prenatals and had to drink liquid iron too! 

    Oh the joys of having no insurance and being pregnant but we wouldn't have it any other way and will love this baby girl no matter what.  Now to start working on the cost for her when she comes since she has to see a peds dr pretty quick too. 

  • Not baby stuff.  Stuff for you.My break down (others may have different categories): Co-pays - $70. Hospital and Delivery will be $250Maternity Clothes - Estimating 300Medications (including vitamins) - $50 for vitamins and PrilosecPillows - $18 Boppy body pillowBaby stuff - Not keeping track. Nor am I counting the new car :)
  • Matenity Clothes  $600

    New bras (so far)  $150

    Meds                   $200

    Hosp/Dr Chgs      $1500

    Co-pays               $200

    Hypnobirthing class $650

     

    Total $3300

  • OB: $1800 (this is what my insurance didn't cover)

    Maternity clothes: $300

    Medications/Vitamins: $50

    McDonald's Milk Shakes: $25

    Gas to and from Dr's office: $60

    Lost wages: $200

    Having the car cleaned (b/s DH said the baby was not allowed in my aids infested vehicle) : $60

    Nesting: $250 (repainting the foyer/hallway, hanging shelves in my bedroom, etc---nothing to do with LO's room or any necessary repairs)

    Co-Pays from MFM: $150

    This total comes to  $2895.

    It does not include:

    My $2500 deductible for the hospital

    The extra $250 I have to pay my doctor for c-section

    The amount of money DH will spend in gas driving to and from the hospital when LO is born (since he got laid off there is no more company credit card to pay for his gas).... probably about $100 when all is said and done.

    This brings out expected final grand total to $5745.

     

    Hopefully DH gets a job with insurance because the insurance I have through my work sucks.

  • OB co-pay - $15

    Hospital - $0 (I'm very fortunate to have great insurance)

    Misc lab tests - $40

    Meds - $50

    Pillow - $50

    Books - $50

    Classes - $75

    Maternity clothes - $400 <-  I shouldn't have even spent that much because my SIL gave me probably over $2k worth of maternity clothes, but I'm a clothes hound and I couldn't pass up a cute tank or dress when I saw it.

    Electric bill - Indifferent I don't even want to guess because I kept it very chilly in the house especially towards the end
