We had our first midwife appointment this evening. Everything seemed to be going great. Everything is measuring right and the heartbeat was in the upper 160's! Baby was kicking at the doppler quit a bit. It's such a relief to hear all of that activity going on in there!

It's becoming more apparent that our insurance company isn't going to pay for it. But that's okay, because it is still going to be half the cost of the bill we got from our hospital birth when they accidentally billed DH's insurance instead of mine (mine offered more coverage at the time- our insurance now is similar to DH's back then)

Next appointment is Jan 4

That's great! We have to pay all out of pocket for our midwife and it's the best money we've spent. Like you, her entire fee is almost the same as just my deductible for a hospital birth!

Insurance is so bad about this. Which company isn't paying? Blue cross?

Sounds like a great appointment. The money hurts us too, but we were blessed the last time that our insurance did pay most of it, so we were only responsible for a couple thousand. I am hoping we get better or at least the same coverage this time.
