This is my second pregnancy. After seven months, I've finally had enough of my OB/GYN's 3-minute checkups and rushing me out of her office because she overbooked patients and came in late. On top of that, I just got a bill for my second-level sonogram, which I thought was covered by my health insurance.I've been wondering it for a while but never could say it aloud....is all this prenatal care even necessary? All the doctor does when I go is do a really quick sonogram and basically let me know the baby's still alive. This feels like a waste of time and money.I want the baby to be born healthy but I'm having a hard time seeing how prenatal care is going to make it so. I take my vitamins and read up on being healthy. What do I need the doctor for?.
