I thought by having my husband's insurance as well as my own, I would be able to deliver at the hospital that I wanted to. I found out after a few different phone calls this morning that isn't the case. Well, let me re-phrase that. I could still deliver at the hospital that I want, but if I did, it would come with one hefty bill for us to pay. However, if I go where my insurance wants us to go, we might end up with a small bill or with no hospital bill at all. I would definitely rather have the cheaper bill of course, it is just disappointing knowing I won't be going where I am familiar, where I am comfortable.
I know a few different people that have delivered at the hospital I will be going to and they were very happy with their experience. That makes me feel a bit better. I definitely want to walk through there, get a good feel before I actually do go into labor though so that I do feel more comfortable and not so out of sorts. This hospital can't be all that bad if my best friend used to work there! This definitely isn't the end of the world, just something I need to wrap my head around.
It is so weird how you feel when you have to step out of your comfort zone, your little bubble. I have been doing it more and more the older I get, but it doesn't seem to get any easier! I will keep a positive attitude and be optimistic. That is the best that I can do and I imagine with good feelings like that, everything will be OK.
