Soooo Annoyed.

Medical mumbo jumbo crap again. First let me say I STILL haven’t gotten back any results from the battery of blood work that was supposed to be in by July 29th, the doctor I spoke of whom I don’t trust assured me she would call me with the results when they came back, that was nearly 2 weeks ago. Big surprise, and she wonder’s why I don’t feel she is reliable.

I was scheduled for my normal prental checkup with my OB for this afternoon, I just called to verify it was still on. She told me my doctor was on vacation, but maybe I was scheduled to see her backup, no, my next appointment in the system was for September 8th. She sees that I did have an appointment for tommorow, Tuesday and it says it was rescheduled (which they called me and said it was today) but they did not move my name over to the appointment list for today so the doctor can’t see me. She said I should still go in and see a nurse and pee in a cup, take my blood pressure and weigh me, then at least I have that done.  I don’t know if I am going to go. I don’t want to leave work to go see some stanger nurse who can only complete half of the appointment, the only part I really care about is the fundus height and the doppler anyways and the nurses can’t do that, so what do I care how much I weigh, and I know my blood pressure will suck cause I am pissed that once again I have been shafted.

Whatever- I last saw my OB on July 14th, then I had an ultrasound on July 22nd, then I saw the specialist at the hospital on the 29th so it’s not like I haven’t been being followed closely, I just really really wanted to hear the baby’s heartbeat again today, I was so looking forward to it. Since I can’t feel the baby yet, these dopler moments renew my faith in this little one’s well being. Plus I haven’t heard it since starting the Fragmin so I just wanted to know all was still ok.

Oh well-so that means it will be September 8th before I next see anyone, I see my OB on the 8th, the specialist on the 10th an ultrasound on the 14th, it seems all my stuff falls in clusters like this.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. I am so sorry this happening, I know how hearing the HB makes things just a bit more bearable 😦

  2. have you considered switching practices? i know that would be a pain as well, but for me at 20w with maya i ended up switching even though the other place had my well woman history for years as well as pregnancy history. they just screwed so many things up and i was getting increasingly anxious about the rest of the pregnancy as well as birth and how well they would be able to take care of me if they kept making all these mistakes.

    • I REALLY like this doctor, she is the one who delivered Evan and has really been there for me, it’s her secretaries that are bullshit.
      As for the other complaints (stupid specialist), I can’t switch cause they work at the one and only hospital in Halifax were you have baby, the big children’s hospital, and it’s a REALLY great hospital, I just think the specialist are so overworked they forget to call with test results and are dissorganized, but it still pisses me off.

  3. So sorry to hear that. Gosh, I don’t understand where the blood results went.
    Hearing the heart the beat is so essential to us! I know what you are feeling. I haven’t heard the babies heart yet and I feel anixous and nervous!
    I hope your test results come in now for you.
