| I went into the doctor for my 5 month check up today. The baby's heartbeat was in the 140's and everything measured good. She did yell at me because I have only gained one pound and she is not happy about that. She said I better gain more weight by the next visit.
I'm suppose to have the sugar glucose test done at the next visit, but I told her I may have to pass because my insurance is not covering a lot this time. I got a bill for $315.00 for all the bloodwork that was done at the first appointment. She told I don't have a choice that it is required. If I don't have money to pay for it, how can she force me to have it done? I was a bit annoyed. It's not that I don't want to do it but when you have to pay for it, things change.

|Aw that sucks that you have to pay for the labs. How are you feeling? Have you had your glucose test yet?|

Tell her to send you through the clinic for tests
When I was preggo with all my 4 children I refused all tests but the normal blood work and urine tests.
If your not showing signs of problems then why bother.

| I was able to go get on medicaid because my husband got laid off and lost his medical insurance, so that will help.
I had my 6th month appointment on Tuesday and I gained 7 pounds!! So they are very happy with my weight gain. I had the sugar glucose test done and have not heard anything, so I think it went well.
