my son is due Christmas Day. I havent gotten anything for him for Christmas, but my family may get him something, depending on how comfortable they are with the unknown aspect. We're expecting by adoption (I am lurking on here for the non actual pregnancy aspects of exptecting ) So there's a slim possability that we will walk out of the hospital empty handed. I know a lot of my family are guarding their hearts against that. We haven't had a baby shower fro the same reason. We plan on having a meet the baby party in Jan instead.
I have made mental notes on things I would like to get him if he does make an appearance before christmas. Mostly stuff for "babys first christmas"View Thread
I work for an insurance company and this is EXACTLY what to do Or check the website, it should say when dependants can be added. Some companies also will "pre add" the child if you know gender. But you still have to call after the baby is born to let them know DOB. Never assume just cause there's a claim for labor and birth that they will auto add the new baby. Often claims are processed by the automated system which doesn't know to do that.
*For others reading this that have group insurance with an employeer- some company plans require to be notified by the HR department so be sure to check with BOTH*View Thread
oh and I thought you'd find this amusing- my husband was reading over my shoulder and said "1 up? like in Super Mario Brothers?" I said "yes dear, they're having a mario theamed party and the baby is going to be dressed as a 1 up mushroom" He of course thought it was the best idea ever.View Thread
