DH being laid off
Wed, 03-14-2012 - 12:38am

As if pregnancy isn't stressful enough! Today I learned that DH's job is being eliminated; they are hiring someone with less experience to do the same job for less pay.

I am so sorry that this is happening now, or at all! It's never a good time to be forced out of a job. I really hope that he finds something new soon.

So sorry to hear this. I can't imagine the extra stress of that on top of everything else you are already going through.

I have heard it is better to call insurance companys directly and look into coverage and not to go through COBRA becuase they are so high priced.

Good luck! P & PT coming your way!

Sending you P&PT....

COBRA is iffy depending on what company your insurance is through. I would call around and see what you can get on your own. COBRA sometimes over charges and it is cheaper to find a plan on your own. Ge info on both and then decide. It will take a lot of research. I hope that this turns into something good and your DH finds an even better job!!

Sending you prayers and positive thoughts. I'm so sorry that you're dealing with this We had a big change in our insurance coverage thru dh's job. They can't afford to do the better coverage, so at a few weeks pregnant finding out were having twins, we had to switch insurance and now we pay a ton more. Hugs. Hang in there
