Hi. I was on PA (Pennsylvania) Medical Assistance since the beginning of my pregnancy. The last time I saw the doctor was 1 week ago. I was 10wks 2days at that time. It was the 3rd time I was at the doctor. I have already had 2 ultrasounds, everything looked good so far, and I heard the heartbeat at the last visit! :) 160 yay. Anyways now my husband has a job (he was laid off and he was on unemployment......thats why i needed to be on medical assistance) and I too have a better higher paying job, so now we don't qualify for the Medical Assistance anymore as we are making too much money. ANYWAYS... his benefits don't kick in until July 1, 2005. Will I be okay if I don't go back to the doctors until then?

You can always call the doctor you went to, and find out over the phone (free of charge) if it is ok to wait until July to return.

that's a pretty critical time period to miss an appointment - i just say that because you are growing (your baby) so much in the beginning and need to be monitored. maybe since you guys are making money now you can go in once during those 10 weeks (which would be close to normal anyway) and just pay for it? I'd recommend that, but I think you're probably safe regardless. Congratulations!
