    Okay so i’ m 7 weeks and 2 days today and i have had a positive urine test (at the clinic) and so i called to get medi-cal today and they said it takes 30-45 days to get it and then told me that there doctors wont see me until 12 weeks anyways…..that seems a little far along. im taking prenatal pills but what about blood tests and such???? i mean what if my body is lacking something??

    it scares me a little i want my baby to be healthy but thats what i get i guess when i have to go thru the state insurance.

    The upside to this is my work just offered us blue shield so i’ m getting really good insurance very soon. but has anyone ever had to wait so long and if so you have any advice you can give a girl>>> I just want a healthy little baby

    hmmmm, thats weird….i would go to a free clinic that you can walk into to set up an appointment, cuz i’ve never heard of anyone having to wait 12 weeks

    Hm, that’s strange. I’m on public assistance and went to the welfare/TANF/jobs and family services office (what it’s called here in Ohio) and got a casenumber/worker and insurance from that day forward on Medicaid. They set you up with medicaid until you choose CareSource, Anthem Medicaid, and there’s another one…

    I would just go to your local office and call low-cost/free clinics because this doesn’t sound right at all. Calling these places never really gets you anywhere.

    Your first "prenatal" visit is usually around 12 weeks, but you usually have your first appointment before that which confirms pregnancy and does family history, bloodwork etc…

    Call your doctor 🙂 Good luck on your journey!
