@Quietserenity:  Would the outcome of what they find affect what you do with the pregnancy? If it wouldn’t then I would say talk to the doctor’s office and explain the situation. They may say it could wait or they may say it’s worth the $250 and they can put you on a payment plan to pay it off over several months if you need.

How far along are you? And will your insurance starting in December cover your prenatal care? It is only 4 weeks away so I would probably see if your clinic would be ok with you holding off. I would also ask if the could just do a limited ultrasound, not the complete anatomy scan, if it would be cheaper.

@Quietserenity:  I would talk to them to see if it’s something that can wait until December when you have coverage.  If not, see if they’ll work with you to make payments to pay it off.  Most doctors offices are fairly easy to work with in that regard.  They just want their money.  Good luck!!!!

@Quietserenity:  With the new information the nurse gave you over the phone, I wouldn’t hesitate dishing out the $250 to make sure everything was good. Good luck!

@Quietserenity:  I was really worried when you said that they couldn’t see the spine! I agree with you that with the low amniotic fluid and the POTENTIAL for an issue, it’s probably worth the $250.  Hope baby shows you if they’re a boy or a girl!

@Quietserenity:  Sending positive thoughts your way for the repeat US! Also, even if they won’t set you up on a payment plan you can just call and pay off a little bit at a time and it will still be ok. I’ve had so many US’s and various tests and doctor appts with this pregnancy and the bills have PILED up…I’m not on an official payment plan with any of them but I just call every couple weeks or every month and make a payment and it’s no problem-no interest or anything so I’ve been taking my time with them.
