I've seen a lot of posts about peoples medical experience, and have been grateful for the information but when looking could never come across one from a pregnant woman's perspective. Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place, aha but any how. I'm on my way to London to have my medical, I shall post on here my experience when I'm finished just in case any body is interested in how it went. First perk of the day the train has good air conditioning and a phone charger LOL.

I got there a little early but the receptionist got me seen quicker. Sitting in the waiting room was daunting at first, but I'm pretty confident and friendly so started talking to the other people in the room. It was nice hearing their stories. It really makes you feel more at ease and that you aren't alone. I had to fill out an extra medical questionnaire and do a pee sample. and then I see a nurse who looked over my vaccinations and said i was fine and up to date and just talked to me about the hooping cough vaccination given through pregnancy, I then had my X-ray. I signed a form to say I was fine to have it done. I Had to take off my top and bra and wear a gown and then wear a heavy padded protection apron, it wasn't uncomfortable and you only wear it for a couple minutes. But it was funny carrying even more weight for a few minutes. Especially in this heat!!. Everyone there is super friendly. I then had to wait to see the doctor. Again really nice, made me feel at ease. Asked if I wanted a chaperone to which I said no , congratulated me on my pregnancy and asked if I had a name for my son, we laughed over the fact his gonna be named after my husbands favourite basketball player lol. i had to do an eye test, and was surprised for getting the letters right, he then looked in to my eyes with a light, and checked my ears. I had to take my shoes and socks off and my top off but leave my bra on and wear a gown, he checked my breathing and then he asked me to lay down and examined my belly, checked the babies position and measured my bump, And then checked my feet lol I hate feet and people touching them so we joked about that, I then had a blood test done,  and he did my blood pressure. He asked me about my relationship through out and the baby and was super friendly and genuinely interested in what I had to say. He shook my hand at the end and wished me all the best. I then paid the fee and the receptionist gave me a receipt and a vaccination document that I have to take with me to America. It was pretty straight forward. You wait around for a bit but it's easy and the staff are very pleasant.

Hey @Debzib88, sorry I just saw this. I was around 7 and a half months pregnant when I had my medical and we moved when our little one was 12 weeks old. Feel free to drop me a note if you would like any advice regarding the process and getting the citizenship for your LO (he/she won't be able to travel to the USA on an ESTA as they are eligible for citizenship, so need to apply for that through the embassy). Well done on getting though the medical. I had a little drama as I had to get Boots to email me confirmation of my flu shot, on route to the medical 😂 and then I wasn't sure about the safety of the x-ray but they were very helpful and good there. Just tardy in getting my medical to the embassy! Good luck x

How comes you moved when the baby was 12 weeks old? Is that how long it took for you to get your visa issued? Our process is cr1. I forgot to put that in the title lol I'm hoping to be in America before his born. My interview is on the 12th so it's next week.
