OH were to start...I went to my ob doctor today for my check up. Everything health wise is Fine with little Ellie and my self .. My problem is with my doctor. A little history .. my first husband and i had a still born baby at 27 weeks. so every time im pregnant i get a little nervous.. especially this time when I have several complications. I have a COMPLETE PLACENTAL PREVIA, I have Pre-eclampsia again this time it is mild so far, I developed a Rash called PUPPP.It itches like crazy!!! I also have had SEVERAL bouts of preterm labor that required meds to stop my labor. Last Friday night I woke up in the middle of the night and need to use the bathroom and Discovered I was bleeding . That CAN BE a BIG deal with my complications..so off to the labor and delivery we got to make sure everything is ok .They take blood and urine the normal stuff.. the on-call doc ordered a ultrasound to rule out a few things like a abrupt ion , and to check my fluid and the baby and placenta's position.. Everything turned out to be FINE. other than having a UTI infection and being dehydrated. they gave me antibiotics and some saline and sent me home after 7 hrs.. so Monday morning I call my doctors office to let them know I had a u.s at the hosp. and If i need to come in for my appointment today and IF they wanted to proceed with the u.s i was scheduled to have today and that I was still bleeding and had some and cramping .. I left the nurse a voice mail and Monday went by NO ANSWER!! so Tuesday morning i called again asked to speak to the nurse.. i was asked if i wanted her voice mail and i declined say NO i need to talk to her and she never returned my call yesterday .. so they put me on hold for like 35 minutes finally a annoying sounding nurse comes to the phone, explains why she didn't call me back and that Yes he wanted to see me but NO i wouldn't be having another u.s .. OK that is wonderful.. they are expensive anyways. So i get to my appointment to day and the doctor walks in and asked how I m feeling . I told him I am Still a little crampy and spotting some.. He said well OK.. but listen you have to relax and stop worrying so much and STOP calling up here 3 times a day ..I was STUNNED!!! then he did my exam said the baby sounded good I was measuring fine and asked if i had any questions I say yes.. he gave a half smirk and said i figured so but make it quick i dont have time for this ... so i gave him my list and he rolls his eyes and said you really need to calm down a little and i will give you short answers he began answering a few then his phone rings ..HE TAKES THE CALL .. then talks for like five minutes and then finish reading my questions giving me more half assed answers and NO more info that I went in with .. then he tells me he will see me in 2 weeks IF he dont hear from me before then . I told him I know i might tend to be more on edge than a normal mom but that fact that I lost a baby make me worry more he said.. YOU NEED TO GET OVER THAT .. you have had two healthy pregnancies since then and you are fine.. ***HOW THE HELL DO YOU GET OVER HAVING A DEAD BABY????**** so i left the doctors office crying.. Not only do i feel attacked but like he has NO concern for my worries and dismisses my bodies signals that tell me something isn't right.. I feel as if im just another pregnant woman he has to see and dont care about the health of my baby as long as he gets paid.. I am SO pissed off . I really want to change doctors but dont know if i can or not with being so far along and my insurance. I have ZERO confidence in him and dont feel he has any compassion for my situation.. SO tell me what do you all think and what would you do???
