Medical Assessment ( Partner Visa)

Hi all,

I applied for my Partner Visa last year on April 2015 ( have been in Australia ever since February 2015 after my marriage in January 2015 in Malaysia) and was about to go for my medical check up when I found out I was pregnant. Our due date was supposed to be on January 2016. We opted to wait until we've safely delivered. Unfortunately we lost our baby at 19 weeks in August 2015. Took me about 2 months to recover and then I took time off to visit my family and rested and only came back to Australia in January 2016.
Again I was ready to go for medical check up and once again we found out we are expecting and my due date will be on November 2016. This time around though, I have already made appointment with BUPA.

Now I have spoken to BUPA and two different immigration officers and all have given me different answers. Just wondering if anyone could weigh in on this too:

1. BUPA - Informed me I could come in after 14 weeks pregnant to do medical check up & xray.

2. Immigration Officer 1 - informed me I MUST go in for the medical check up NOW and they will put me on hold for my xray until after I have delivered.

3. Immigration Officer 2- informed me it is up to ME if I was to do as per Immigration Officer 1 OR wait until I have delivered so that I could do the medical one shot.

She suggested I wait bc of timeline. If the decision on my application is to be made more than 1 year AFTER I have done my initial Medical checkup, it would be a complete waste of money on my side bc I would now need to re-do it again.

I am inclined to follow no.3 because it does make sense to me.
If I do my medical now (Apr 16) and my delivery is due in 7-8 months (Nov-Dec 16) and 7 weeks to recover post delivery so that is another 2 months or so before I do my xray (Dec 16-Jan 17). If the decision isn't made within that 2-3 months period ( Jan 17-Apr 17) then it will be a waste of $$$.

And with pregnancy, delivery date is very fluid- could be well under or well over my estimated due delivery date.

But Immigration Officer 1 sounded so sure of her answer, making me question my decision.

So anyone with any suggestions/input?
