Oh, the things you find out when you're pregnant.
Not only are you subject to a million pokes and prods for blood tests and the like, but most of these tests cost of fortune. And only some are covered by Medicare. These of course are luxuries, and plenty of women and their babies have survived perfectly well without these tests for many millenia, but boy, the out-of-pocket for peace of mind is adding up.
P.S. I still love you Medicare and the Australian public health system. I can never stay cranky at you for long.
