Re: Military Mommas, when was your first U.S.?

My DH is in the Army. With baby #2, I couldn't even get an appt with my PCM until 17 weeks, my ultrasound was at 21 weeks. With #3 on the way, I switched to Tricare Standard and had a dating US at 12 weeks (would have been sooner, but it took Tricare almost a month to process my disenrollment forms )

We're Navy (my dh works at the hospital and I doula there) and I think the "regs" for u/s at our hospital is you go in for an initial pg test then they schedule you your class....does anyone else think the "class" is a bit redundant especially when you are on your 4th child. Mandatory military junk. and then I think they normally wait to see you until 10 weeks. Although if you want I think you can get them early!

Re: Military Mommas, when was your first U.S.?

My husband is Army but only my middle son was born in a military hospital. They weren't going to do an u/s at all with him. Something about all the u/s techs being deployed and they were only referring out for a problem. I saw a different midwife each appointment and I finally talked one into it. She wrote me up as small for dates and I got my u/s at 27 weeks.

Re: Military Mommas, when was your first U.S.?

We're Army in Germany, seeing a doctor on the economy because the military hospital here stopped doing OB last year.

Anyway, my doctor does an ultrasound every appointment. Tricare covers it, I don't know why they do here and not at the states, but they do

I also had an u/s at the army hospital immediately after BFP because last year I had an ectopic and miscarriage before this pregnancy.

Re: Military Mommas, when was your first U.S.?

DH is AF. I had my first at 7wks, then again at about 12wks, then we could finally hear her heartbeat so I didnt have any more til 21 wks for the major US for any problems and gender, then I had another at 34 wks to check position and that was my last.
I had a civilian off base OB, so I think it all depends on who the doc is and which form of Tricare you are on.
