Ultrasounds and Insurance

I really wish our insurance hadn't changed since I had Gabby. When I was pregnant with Gabby we had all the ultrasounds that I needed and it was never a problem with payment.
So here is the situation. I am about 4 weeks along and I called my MW today and made an appointment for a month from now, I will be about 8 1/2 weeks pregnant. She said that she wants to do an ULtrasound at that appointment but to check with my insurance company.
The idea of seeing my little one sooner than 20 weeks is so exciting to me. However I called my insurance company and they only cover 1 US unless it's medically neccessary. We have a $3000 dollar deductible that I highly doubt we will reach for awhile, so we will have to pay for this 1st ultrasound anyway. but if we for some reason were to meet it by then we wouldn't have this covered.
I am thinking of calling my MW's office and seeing if they can code this as medical neccessary so then my 20 week US can be the "one".... Just wanted people's opinions on this. I know I am being selfish.
