Hoping to get some advice here. I'm 12 weeks pregnant. We will be moving cross-country, and I won't be in our new home until I'm 25 weeks along (July 19th). I'm hoping to have a home birth there. DD was born in the hospital with a midwife.
I had two prenatal appointments, one at 4 weeks and one at 8 weeks. Wasn't very impressed with the midwife there, and made an appointment with a different group (was supposed to be tomorrow). The office I went to is one that you can sign up for the state Medicaid for pregnant women program at, but they completely fouled up my paperwork, which I found out yesterday. I can try to apply again, but am feeling really stressed out with all of it. I would basically only be here for two appointments, since I leave this area July 7.
So my question is, what am I missing if I don't go to those appointments? I don't want to have my ultrasound until I'm in the new city, as DP is moving a month and a half before me. Are there things they need to check for before then? I don't have any medical issues. Was on zoloft, but weaned off of it early on. I had 'pre-term labor' with DD (braxton hicks contractions close together, but never dilated at all) starting abt 2 months before my due date, and very mild preeclampsia around 35 weeks.
