Baby Makes Three... Baby Is Expensive

I hate thinking about finances. Hate it. I freak out anytime I think about it. But my boyfriend and I had a long talk today about finances, because I'm pregnant and we have to think about all new expenses we've never had before. All new insurance, a college account, estate, medical bills and then all the baby stuff. Furniture, baby clothes, diapers, a car seat, a stroller...

Oh, and during all this, we're going to have to find a place together. I live at my parent's house, and . I have a good job and honestly I've saved quite a bit of money by living with my parents so I have a nice little nest egg. My boyfriend also has a good job, some savings, but he rents a dinky 1 bedroom apartment in not-the-best part of town. Seriously, I looked up the crime reports in his area today. He lives a block away from a sex offender. I don't want to live in the city, but I know it's going to make the most sense with both of our jobs. I commute an hour each way to go to work or see him. Then the idea of maternity leave... I think I'm just going to go to work while I'm in labor.
