Depends: It depends on what insurance you have and what you are upgrading to. Make sure the new insurance will cover your pregnancy and won't exclude coverage as a pre-existing condition. Also, make sure the doctor and hospital you like takes your new insurance. Sometimes when you switch insurance, you lose coverage or can no longer see your doctor or go to your hospital. Best wishes!
