Having A Baby Costs HOW MUCH?!

If you've ever taken a peek at your itemized hospital bill after giving birth you likely drank an entire bottle of wine afterward. It. Will. Blow. Your. Mind.
I’m going to tell you what I wish someone had told me before I went to the hospital to have my first baby. Listen up.

Are you ready?

Here goes: The hospital is like the airport. They will charge you $25.99 for a pair of scissors. They will charge your $15.99 for a sandwich. Instead of a $7 beer they offer a $7 Hydrocodone pill.
Tips for minimizing your hospital bill. It's what I'm babbling about today. I want to know how much your bill was and if you have any worthwhile advice for all the pregnant ladies out there.
