happyhomemaker25 Posted September 25, 2012 Share Posted September 25, 2012 Back story: I don't have insurance. I'm in the process of being approved for a pre existing condition insurance plan. I can't get approved for this plan if I've had Medicaid in the last 6 months. I just took a pregnancy test (or like 6 or 7 :tongue_smilie:) this weekend and it was positive. My last cycle was like 5-6 weeks ago. Because I had an ectopic (where the tube burst and I lost my right tube) last September I am very, very protective of my left tube. My husband and I decided to take some of our preciously little disposable income and just schedule an office visit with my OBGYN since my insurance has not been approved yet. I called to find out how much it would cost, explained the situation to the sweet little girl. She gave me some numbers (probably close to $300) and then said the first appointment she had was mid Oct. I once again explained the ectopic last year and she said she'd have to talk to the nurse to find out if I could get in sooner. She said, "You'll only be about 7-8 weeks, though." Um, my tube burst at 10 last time. Plus the earlier we catch it the better my chances of keeping the tube. I thought about just going on Medicaid, BUT if I do and then lose this baby like I lost the other two (early miscarriages) this year I'm stuck with no insurance for another six months. I have Type 2 Diabetes and PCOS which gets a little costly when your paying out of pocket. Of course I feel every little twinge on my left side and then today I had some shoulder pain which really freaked me out. Probably over active imagination and paranoid, but I just want someone to take this seriously. I love this Dr. and he is on the PCIP plan. He delivered my Lily and he's been my GYN since I was about 14yo. Thanks for letting me vent here since I can't tell people IRL yet. Also any suggestions or advice would be helpful. I'm not looking for a new OB yet because I'm waiting to hear back from his nurse. If they still can't see me til the middle of Oct. I will probably call the OB who did my surgery last year. She was nice and made sure to tell me to see a Dr. as soon as I got pregnant again. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
