haven't seen a doc 17 weeks pregnant

So my question is I'm 17 weeks pregnant and I haven't yet seen a doctor, I'm having trouble with my insurance .. I have seen the baby in sonogram and its moving and looks fine.. this is my 2nd child and I had no complications with my first and that's one of the reasons why I'm probably not going crazy. I've been taking my vitamins and eating right.. I'm actually going tomorrow to to find out the sex of the baby.. besides that.. should I be worried about not running the tests and not seeing a doctor yet? I hopefully will be in an office in the next month. Any advise on what I should be doing or anything I should be worried about?

When my mom was pregnant with me she didn't have insurance and didn't see a doctor until 7 months pregnant. She just took her prenatals. I was completely healthy and all.

When My Mom Was Pregnant With My Brother She Never Went To The Doctor Or Took The Vitamins Because Nobody Knew She Was Besides Her And Hes fine

I suggest you to go to a clinic. Usually they help you insurance from the government if you qualify. And when the baby id born you call the insurance company to add her.

I'm 17 weeks as well and haven't seen a Dr. I had an early ultrasound and heard the heartbeat in the er. I just stay educated so that I can keep me and the baby as healthy as possible. I take prenatals and eat lots of fiber I exercise and rest plenty. The way I see it is if your gut says you're fine then just enjoy it. And lucky you getting to find out the sex :) I see a Dr at 21 weeks finally and that's what I'm most excited for
