I wouldn’t skip - if there are serious problems uncovered (incompatible with life or otherwise) there will be a very small window after the scan to abort. You may be able to have the images sent to your OB and do the follow up remotely? I’d call your Ob and see what they recommend.

20 week scan is pretty critical, and there's a short window of time that they can see what they need to see, particularly with your baby's heart. Even if they find something that can't be resolved in utero, it will help them have the right resources available at delivery. So no, I wouldn't skip. However, you could call your doctor. There is likely an imaging center near you that could do it and send the results to your doctor.

Go to your 20 week scan. I found out my baby has a VSD at my 20 week scan which has now snowballed into weekly fetal medicine visits and biweekly pediatric cardiology visits. I’ve been told to continue these appointments regardless of virus as this needs to be closely monitored. Not to scare you, you’ll more than likely be fine. The point is that you need to make sure you have that scan so that if something is amiss, you’ll be given a care plan to address. I’m now 30 weeks fwiw.

Even if not covered by insurance I would just find somewhere to do it close to you out of pocket and have them send the ultrasound results to your OB. Then do your OB appointment by phone. I mean all they really do is check fetal heart rate which you can totally wait for as the ultrasound tech will also do it.

In many geographies you don’t even see your OB every month if you are having a healthy pregnancy and are otherwise low risk

I’m supposed to have my 20 week scan on Apr 1 & another follow up appt the week after with OB (I see her every 4 weeks). How critical are these appts? We’re worried if NYC goes into quarantine, we won’t be able to get back out after coming in. If an anomaly is spotted on the 20 week scan, can they even do anything about it before the baby is born? Also, anyone have recs for good OBs or hospitals within a ~1hr drive of the Poconos?

I did mine at 23 weeks. The doctor wasn’t concerned at all about doing it a bit later (I was traveling). Just call your doctor and see what they say. They may have no problem delaying a little.

Yes pls get the anatomy scan, it’s one of the 3 that are critical. You can push it out a few weeks depending on the situation, and you also do not have to get it in NYC if you have PPO insurance. I would use the find a doctor / hospital search function on the insurance website and call the center to understand the costs but they should be able to send results back to your doctor, and your doctor could do a telecon / call to help you understand results.

When NY was the epicenter for COVID-19 the rest of America shunned us and gave drivers a hard time in other states if our license plate was from NY. Now that NY actually flattened/reduced the curve, while the other states are a bumbling mess, can our governor Cuomo set a ban on all travelers coming in from other states? I would suggest a 14 day quarantine on all folks from outer states and a 30 day one for those from hot spot disaster states.
