I'm 21 and this is all a little new..
Just found out that I am pregnant a little over a week ago, was a bit of a shock as I only went in for recurring thrush :S
Got a bunch of blood tests done inc diabetes screening and a scan to see if I had endometriosis or cysts (both run in my family) since periods are irregular (last period on october 28, and the cycle before was 40days long).
Doc and I was pretty shocked with both results, found out I am hypoglycemic and pregnant. The pelvic scan came up clear, just excessively thick uterine lining (now its obvious cuz of pregnancy) but didnt find any embryo which means either ectopic or too early. (We're hoping just too early)
Ive been told since I am pregnant and hypoglycemic I'm going to have a high risk pregnancy more than likely resulting in diabetes.
So Since I'm high risk, she's told me I will have to have extra scans and tests done and regularly see a diatitian. Now does anyone know how expensive this is? Its my first pregnancy, my Fiance' and I are both excited but at the same time worried because neither of us have much (if any) real money rolling in. Fiance's business is still getting up and running, really slow and I was sacked end of september without any new job opportunities.
I have a dating scan next week to make sure its in the right place/how far along etc. I thought it would be bulk billed like my pelvic and pancrease scan but read somewhere on here that someone paid $150 for it??
Does anyone know how many tests a 'high risk pregnancy' needs to have and how much I will need to pay for this?
