Ultrasound today... Prayers please!!

Today is our follow up from the anatomy scan. I have to go to a different place for it. It's actually a telemedicine appt so the dr will actually be on a monitor in Little Rock, which is 4.5 hrs south of here! Bc DH just started a new job this week he wasn't comfortable taking off work so soon so my mom is going with. Please pray that baby is healthy with no other markers for the trisomies!! I'm so scared that something could actually be wrong!!

Also I found out yesterday that I was declined Medicaid. I qualify based off my income level but they only allow you to have $3100 in resources. Meaning value in your car or bank accounts. Since my car is valued at more than $4600 I got denied. They have other programs for ppl who have higher income but you still have to have less than $3100 in resources. Soo frustrating!!

THinking of you today!! please keep us posted.

as for the insurance....do you guys have a all kids type program, similar to medicad, but i think cuz you are pregnant you would qualify. I know it's a stresser, but just remember that's what payment plans are for.....

Thinking of ya for your appointment. Hoping it goes well.

That's totally frustrating that you don't qualify for Medicaid or other programs. Do you have your car completely paid off? PSH LAME!

Thanks ladies!! The appt went great!! Her cysts are totally gone!! She isn't measuring as small and all of her parts were perfect!! If I hadn't had my scan so early we wouldn't have even known about the cysts. I am so thrilled and relieved that all is well!

We do own our car outright. I called around to different hospitals and such and found one that has a financial assistance scale. The lady said that based off my income I qualify to only have to pay 20%. So I think we are going to switch drs and go to that office. My dr office will cost is about $6000 and this one should be closer to $2000. A lot of money either way but also saves us a lot.
