Has anyone ever had negative tests, and in fact pregnant? - Page 5

post #81 of 136
Naughty thought do you know anyone who is pregnant and maybe give you a urine sample you could take to docs and pass off as your own. Sorry i know it sounds naughty but i can't see any other way of you being seen. Didn't get any post today :/ xxx

That's a really bad idea.

I know but if she is going through exactly the same as me then i know exactly how shes feeling and its not good. Luckily i am booked in for u/s but mumofthree can't even get anyone to listen to her. Bad idea or good idea at least she'll get seen :/

IT'S ILLEGAL!  Considered fraud.

I agree with this 100%.  OP, if you are having these symptoms you *need* medical help.  Either you are pregnant and should be checking to make sure everything is okay OR you have a serious medical issue that needs attention.  Ignore the idea of being pregnant.  Call a doctor and say you have visable swelling in  your abdomen and need help!  You have medicaid so if you can't get an appointment go to urgent care or the emergency room.  At this point, if you are not pregnant you could have a tumor or something that could literally kill you without medical help!  Waiting until the end of the month is simply not acceptable.

just curious what would you do in this situation without the means etc to go private and having nobody listening to you. Luckily i have a sympathetic doctor who is just as curious as me to know what is going on with my body but mumofthree has no one. I understand that it would be illegal but as i said would be very curious to know what would you do as a last resort

She has yet to do any thing that has been suggested.  She plans to wait til the end of the month for her OB appointment.  Read the entire thread, there were numerous legal sane options.

I would call medicare and explain the situation to them and the need to be examined.  And, I wouldn't get off the phone until someone found me a loophole.  My insurance has been a pain before, but staying on the phone, and pushing right back has finally got me what I needed. 

 

I would also consider going to a bella baby sort of place and paying for an ultrasound.  You can do that for 100 dollars or less, usually.

I too have offered sane advice but as i also stated that i do not live in usa and have no idea how your insurances actually work. I only mentioned it as like i said i know how crazy it make you. I guess i'll apologise if i offended you or others and blame it on my hormones lol

Don't blame it on anything.  It's illegal.  Don't tell people who are desperate to do something considered fraudulent.  Fraud is fraud whereever you are.

Where I live the boutique places require proof of previous US.

I called my OB today OP. She is here in Bardstown, KY. She says that she will do an US on a patient regardless of whether they are pregnant if they are paying for it. She said if someone came into her office and said that they wanted a US because they were positive they were pregnant, but that they kept getting negative tests that she would tell them it would cost $345 and she'd be glad to do it. If the person was pregnant, medicaid reimburses all the way back to time of conception.

So, Id just go tell a dr. that you want an ultrasound "just to make sure" and pay cash for it. If you are pregnant, file it with insurance.

I have done what has been suggested, except go to the ER.  The reason I was waiting until the end of the month, is because I have already been to my doc to see what was going on, and she did the tests.  There is no planned parenthood here, and I don't have the money to pay out of pocket for an u/s.  I have very little income, and on the verge of getting evicted from my home.  If I had the money to pay for an u/s, I would have money to pay my rent.  It's really hard for me to just go and get something that I have to pay for.  There have been times that I haven't even had enough money to buy things that I really need.  There is a planned parenthood in Tennessee, and I would go there if I had gas money to get there.  It's not that I'm not trying.  Like I explained before, I have been to 4 doctors, and they just ran tests and didn't think anything else of it.  I will be going to the ER soon, though to find out what is going on exactly.

Hey hon i completely understand. You mentioned that you are due a smear. I dont think that would be good to be opened up like that. Still go but explain your dilemma to the nurses there. Hopefully someone will notice that things are a bit odd. But seriously would not let them near you with any equipment. Wishing you loads of luck hon xxx

If you're having these symptoms and not pregnant you need to see a doc ASAP.

 

Seriously, its worth a call at least. Google it. There's at least one in your area.

Thanks for you concern, notmadxxx, but I had a pap smear with all three of my children, and it's safe.  I guess they don't do that there?

post #98 of 136
Same here. I've had paps both times and Im sure Ill get one this time too.
post #99 of 136
That was a good question. From my own previous pregnancies a smear is always done after baby is born. I just googled it for uk only and it said smear tests are not usually done during pregnancy. But im sure that if you have all had this done during previous pregnancies then i guess thats normal. Anyway how are you feeling now has the nausea got any better, had any weird cravings. I am dairy intolerant but have found myself guzzling milk with little discomfort. My nausea has subsided a bit too but breasts still feel heavy and huge. Also had to stick to wearing leggings now as i just can't get into my jeans anymore. I hope i get appointment soon cos i really feel like im going mad. I think we both know what is going on with our bodies we just need confirmation.
