  • @stothi. Ugh, yuck.  I'm sorry this extra apt has got you less than stoked.  Did they mention what, if any, reason for it there is?

    @prpl11butterfly. GL!!!  I hope they don't bother, and if they do, that everything comes back all clear.  Bloody hell.

  • @BusinessWife all the extra stuff is cause I'm an old lady.  I'm 39- gasp!!! I mean that's pretty much one foot in the grave dontcha know?
    There's nothing that runs in the family on either side to be checking on, nothing about my first child to show concern over. It's all about me being "old."

  • Gah @stothi ; I told DH about my official "elderly multigravidum" dx and we both got a good laugh.  And by laugh I mean...

  • @stothi I kind of have a similar thing going on with an extra cautious OB. I have PCOS and am insulin resistant, so I take Metformin. This time around my OB wants me to meet with a diabetes educator, get a blood glucose meter and test my levels periodically toward the end of my pregnancy. I did NOT have gestational diabetes in my last pregnancy and am not even technically diabetic, so this just feels like extra work/worry for nothing. The clinic she referred me to in the hospital doesn't contact insurance to check coverage, so I have to do that myself. I called today and we still don't know if the class will be covered because the hospital is in-network, but the educators are not. It all depends on how they bill. Arrggh.

  • @fwtx5815 can you contact the diabetes program to ask how it's billed? I deal with this routinely and check insurance for 99% of the patients seen at my office. My coworker and I both bill under the facility, not as individual providers and this often makes a difference.

    fwtx5815
  • @fwtx5815 my educators bill under the facility too. I’m with @nlc8424 maybe the educators can help you figure out how they bill.
    fwtx5815
  • Thanks for the insight @nlc8424 and @klj0228! I'm going to have to call them tomorrow to verify they'll bill under the clinic/hospital and not as individuals. I'm glad to hear that it seems like most places bill under the facility. I was actually supposed to see them last week but I never got around to verifying insurance coverage until today, and my glucose meter was out of stock at my pharmacy, which they'd requested I bring to the session. It's finally back in stock so I'll grab it on my way home tonight and try to get this thing knocked out soon.

  • @BusinessWife if they test it will be clear. After that 4 day migraine that caused the whole mess, they've actually decreased in severity to minor headaches that go away mostly on their own.

  • Doc warned me they may not be able to find heartbeat because I'm only 11+2 and 12 is the usual time. She tried and thought she had it a couple of times but mine is overpowering so she couldn't be certain. US tomorrow at 11 to check in for my peace of mind. **TW** my boss had a 12wk loss in July and her experience was similar (unable to find heatbeat) **End TW** so I'm a tad paranoid. She said everything feels right on track so she's not worried.
  • I hope you get some reassurance soon and that everything is OK @prpl11butterfly!

  • @prpl11butterfly Hoping for a good scan for you tomorrow. I remember last time with DS, I had to have an ultrasound at my 11 week appointment because she couldn't pick up the HB with the doppler. It really is still fairly early to pick up from the outside. FX.

  • @prpl11butterfly, hope that all goes well with your appointment tomorrow.  I've also had to get a couple of ultrasounds with 2/3 of my sons around 11 weeks for the same reason.  Sometimes it's just hard to get a good read with Doppler at that stage. 

    As for me, I have my MFM appointment on Thursday for the NIPT, US, and some other additional blood work, and then I have my 12 week appointment with my regular OB on Friday.

  • @prpl11butterfly - I'm glad they're getting you in for an u/s for peace of mind. It can be hard to find and hold the HB on a doppler when baby is so small. DS would always try to move away from the doppler too so sometimes as soon as we thought we caught the HB he would move away and we'd lose it again.

  • @prpl11butterfly With my first they were unable to find the hb around 11w with the doppler, but all was well on the u/s.  

    I just had my 12 week appointment. All went well, got to see the little one on the ultrasound and he/she was so active! Not super impressed with my dr so far, so I may reschedule with another within the practice for my next visit.

  • I had my 12 week scan today and met with the genetic counselor and did all the blood work (NIPT plus all the 1st trimester stuff because I had not had any blood work since week 4). Everything went great!!! All of the NT stuff that they were looking for was in the normal range - the NT measurement was less than 1 mm and the nasal bone was there. The baby was super active! Jumping around and doing somersaults. The only weird thing is that the baby is measuring a week ahead (I’m 11w6d and the baby is measuring 13w). They don’t want to change my due date. They said the baby is just big. And it’s nothing to worry about. But, I find that a little odd.

  • @Patience7150 Yay!!! I’m glad everything looked good. Such a good feeling! Did they change your due date? I am also measuring a week ahead. They didn’t change the date though.

  • @Patience7150 Great news! I'm confused though: did you O on CD7?!

    @magnolia209 I don't meet with my doctor until next week to review, so not sure if she'll change it or not.
