If it will calm you, do what you need to do. If you're OB absolutely refuses demands for an early u/s....could you maybe call and complain of a pain to one side or some spotting to get an u/s? If you know your OB will be of no help, then I agree with the suggestion of saying you're sick and nauseous, that you're having trouble holding food down. to get an appt with your GP. Maybe try to word your symptoms in a way (to either dr) that's it's not lying. If you need to calm your nerves, then do what you need to do. As much as I hate lying personally, I can't see where stressing about this for another 3.5wks until your OB will give you an U/S would be a great option. Of course, there's also the option of going to the ER with pregnancy related concerns and you know they'll give you U/S there. Of course, the bill would be higher and the wait time could potentially be crazy long. *hugs* Please KUP!

What about using the reason that you are experiencing incredible anxiety right now (which is true), you're not sleeping (which from what I've seen on FB, you're not), you're not eating (because of your nausea/morning sickness -- also true), and you are falling apart (which depending on how you choose to define that, could be true)? This way, you're not lying -- you're using all pregnancy related symptoms -- and maybe that will be enough to get you in.
Agree with Amy. If your OB isnt helping and after you speak to your gp, is it possible to get a different OB? I just wouldnt want to stick w an OB that isnt going to do **** for you. Like you said thats your child in there.
Is it your insurance keeping your OB from doing an early sono? And are you thinking/worried about multiples?
Frankly, I'd get rid of all them & use this pregnancy to find a better situation altogether. I mean, what good is a good GP if you can never gain access to them and they don't control their staff (unless he's just the passive aggressive type who uses his staff to do exactly what they're doing...blocking access)? And if the OB is useless, they'll be even more useless & frustrating further into pregnancy.
Can you find a pregnancy crisis center & have a sono done there?
id be so upset and looking to switch if that was the case.. .i love my OB/GYN he is amazing and will get me in ASAP if im stressing over the littlest is thngs. so yet again im seeing him... Also with ur numbers being high, i had that with my second pregnancy and it just meant i had twins at the time... so thats all it could mean!
I'm really thinking new OB time, but if you're comfortable with him and like him and want to use him, then I'd just try insisting on the early u/s or even just trying to get a sick appointment with your GP. If you know he won't feel like you are "wasting his time" by tricking the staff to let you in, then go for that. But if you think there is a chance it could hurt your relationship with the practice, maybe try the OB one more time, or even look for a new OB. Actually, the crisis pregnancy center isn't a bad idea either.
