I went over my employer's medical leave/short term disability policy to figure out how much PTO I'd need to have saved in order to take X amount of weeks fully paid (right now, I expect to have about 10 weeks fully paid if we get pregnant sooner rather than later, and if it takes us a while I may be able to take 12 fully paid)
I also called my insurance company today to go over my deductible and out of pocket maximum, and whether or not my baby would be covered in my out of pocket maximum or if they would be subject to their own deductible and the "Family" out of pocket maximum (I guess their answer was that we would only have my deductible/OOP max unless the baby required a NICU stay and wasn't discharged with me, in which case we'd be subject to the family rate).
When I ended the call, the insurance representative asked when I'm due! Super awkward saying "I'm not, just planning ahead..."
Less than 6 weeks of birth control left, and I'm definitely feeling like I should have a plan and realistic expectation at least with regard to the initial expenses (I've known some people to be surprised!). I'm trying to be realistic with regard to time to conception, so part of me feels like "you might not even be pregnant for a year, what are you planning for?!". After all the time we've spent thinking about the best time to d/c birth control, I really can't believe we are almost there.
Anyone else feeling this kind of crazy??
