My wife is pregnant...

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just received a call from my wife, in Colombia. She has just taken a pregnancy test and she's pregnant. Its only been a few weeks now...here interview is December 22nd. Her general medical exam is the 15th.

Please...I have two main concerns.

1. Will the medical exam show that she is a few weeks pregnant.

2. Will this delay the visa approval? Stop the visa process when we are so close to completion..

Shes crying on the phone and I am beside myself.

Being pregnant has nothing to do with stopping the visa or anything. The only change would be if she was to give birth to the baby before the interview. That would delay things because you would have to file CRBA and get a US passport for the child. It would also change the house hold size from 2 to 3 and you would have to make more money.

As of right now you are fine since she JUST found out and her interview is coming up there is no complications what-so-ever for the visa and interview.

It will not delay the process as she isn't heavily pregnant yet, so will still be able to fly. She should tell them at the medical that she is pregnant, as some things (x-ray, some vaccinations) are contra-indicated when pregnant.

I am sure you want to be together asap but you may want to look into your health insurance and whether it will cover her pregnancy and delivery. If not, it may be prudent for her to have the baby in her country.

First, is it your child? I'm not being rude but it needs to be asked. Make sure she takes proof that you were together at the time of conception.

1. They didn't do a pregnancy test that I'm aware of for me, but she should tell them as some things are contraindicated (as someone else said)

2. It's unlikely but there is a 0.0001% chance that they will make her wait till she gives birth to do a DNA test. This happened to someone from Vietnam or something. I highly doubt this would happen to you. You're so close. I don't doubt you'll be together real soon :)

p.s. CONGRATS!!

I second this, when your wife goes in for the medical she needs to notify them that she is pregnant!

It will not delay the process as she isn't heavily pregnant yet, so will still be able to fly. She should tell them at the medical that she is pregnant, as some things (x-ray, some vaccinations) are contra-indicated when pregnant.

I am sure you want to be together asap but you may want to look into your health insurance and whether it will cover her pregnancy and delivery. If not, it may be prudent for her to have the baby in her country.
