I had my "16" week appointment today and met w/ the other OB in the office. She seems really nice and all that... but after being seen 30 minutes late (and I was the 3rd appointment of the day) I was in a bad mood.
She started getting all excited about talking about scheduling my 20 week anatomy scan, and seeing the baby, etc... and I had to remind her about my insurance and how they won't cover it. She was all like of yeah and tried to think of ways to bill it different, but couldn't come up with anything.
I am OK not knowing if the baby is a boy or a girl. DH and I have come to terms with this, and we've even agreed on not settling on a name before the baby is born but rather go in with a top 3 of each sex and take it from there.
But I feel like I am missing something by not having the scan. It seems such a vital part of prenatal care. How can it possibly NOT be covered by our insurance.
She did tell me "all smiles and sunshine like" if I had any spotting or strange cramping to call and they would get me in for an US, but that seems so deceptive. And I don't want them looking for a problem that isn't there. KWIM?
It's hard being around the EC right now, as it's all everyone is talking about.
Ugh... it just bums me out. Ice cream for lunch perhaps.
