Do you mean you can't apply for WIC until your Medicaid is active? You can actually apply even if your aren't on Medicaid at all if you are pregnant and meet the income guidelines you get accepted very quickly. The hardest part about getting WIC (as you know) is waiting for an appt in general. If your son was approved you will be approved regardless of whether your Medicaid had been approved.
I already have WIC and it's not my biggest worry. I really want to get my Medicaid approved is all.

Okay great..I was just thinking if you didn't have it that would be a nice project in the interim while you were waiting . If you have any need for emergency care it will be covered as I mentioned before so try not to worry. It's called PMC (presumptive eligibility coverage) and when you apply they should give you a form good up to 3 months in case it takes that long to get approved. If you did not receive this form you should follow up with them so you can get it. You can show it to most doctors and all hospitals to receive care if needed.

As a lot of other ladies mentioned the doctors don't usually schedule you to have a scan until 12 weeks anyways and Medicaid (unless there's a medical diagnosis requiring more) schedules 2 scans for pregnant women- 1 at 12 weeks and 1 at 20 weeks. That being said I can imagine your frustration on not getting to go in sooner for a piece of mind. Good luck and try not to worry!
