To Bank or Not to Bank?

I am now 23 weeks pregnant, but still unsure as to how I'll go about so many things like the hospital where I’ll give birth, what color to choose for my baby’s stuffs – baby blue, baby pink, or light yellow, and what name to give. The former will be easier to decide on, but the next two will be a bit harder because I need to go through an ultrasound first to determine baby’s gender. But aside from these three, there’s another thing that I’m really looking deeper recently – and that is storing my baby’s cord blood. I keep asking myself, “To bank or not to bank?”

It is still 17 weeks away before I give birth, but as early as now, I’m really thinking hard whether it’s a good idea to bank my baby’s cord blood or not. Based on my research, storing the baby’s umbilical cord is an investment in the future health of my family since stem cells can already be used in different kinds of treatments. I know, one day, my family can benefit from this stem cell storage, but I’m still seriously considering the expenses I’ll have to make for the process shortly after I give birth.

As I’ve mentioned in one of my posts here, I’m currently facing slight money problems lately. So, as much as possible, before I go into storing my baby’s cord blood, I must see to it that the expenses for it won’t go beyond my budget. Although Cryo-Cell is giving away a special discount of up to $725 for expectant families beginning today until June 28, 2009 by simply using the HOT promotional code, I still have to consult Daddy about this since he’s our family’s financial officer. LOL.

Anyway, if you happen to come across this blog and is an expectant mom like me who is considering banking baby’s cord blood, why don’t you check out this Cryo-Cell’s discount? You get to save a lot from this limited offer, so grab it now!
