Luckily we will be saving all of that by having this baby at home. Would you have to drive 3.5 hours for each prenatal? Oh my goodness.. I so could not handle that.
Yes, it would be 3.5 hours each way for each prenatal. We started doing that at the beginning, and I had to wait 2 hours for one of my appointments (apparently it's not uncommon to have to wait up to 3 hours). So, with the 7 hours of driving plus 2 hour wait time, that's 9 hours to see the OB for probably all of 20 minutes.

We had our last baby at our midwife's house, but she was in Vegas as well, so we had to go 3.5 hours. There are no other midwives that are closer to us.

We are just hoping that the whole insurance thing works out!! I will know in a couple of weeks.
