My doctor had only given me two ultrasounds and my first one was because he thought I was having a miscarriage. He only had my blood drawn once (at my first appointment) I wasn't offered any tests during my pregnancy except to be screened for strep b. Now I'm not complaining about this at all. I had excellent care. What I am wondering is if when I get pregnant again and am now on my husbands insurance, will I be offered more ultrasounds, get my blood checked more often, get more tests offered? Was it just this Doctor or was it because of medicaid?Answer Question

well, some doctors don't believe in excessive testing. I know insurances only pay for one ultrasound unless more is ordered by the doctor for a MEDICAL reason. also I got three blood tests Beta Quan test, triple screen test (check for birth abnormalities) and an HIV test in those three blood draws I no they tested more, like RH factor and such. also I got tested for gestational diabetes, strep B and I believe that was it.
one thing I can insure is your hubby's insurance wont pay for more than one ultra sound unless medically nessacery.

Oh as for your last question, for my first pregnancy I was on medicaid and I got all the same tests done for my second pregnancy with blue cross insurance.
