Mine finally came, unassisted (well, more like assisted by a couple friends) on 6/13/13 4:40pm. I'll have to write up a birth story when I get around to it..the birth was a great experience, I had her in the tub, first baby.. I had labored for like 4 days and was physically a mess by that point. My placenta wouldn't come out even after fundal massage, I ended up having to go to the er for a rather traumatic removal procedure. The hospital let my daughter room with me as a...
Grats! Now if mine would come out. I've been in labor since Monday and my baby is sunny side up...which feels like butt labor :-p I want her out....sanity wants to crack.
They sent over my records via email like I asked them to, but are stilo saying "let us know when you've chosen a new provider." Wish they'd just leave me alone. I never envisioned having to deal with this crap toward the end of my pregnancy. The stress is really eating at me. The only good that came out of it is it softened dh enough to be willing to let me go unassisted... Well, with hands off midwife.. But she knows she's only there for his comfort. I wanted to go...
The kicker is where they just told me that I tested positive for opiates (first time was 2nd trimester and I told them before it would be picked up on a test) and didn't ask me what I took this time or how much. I really think they've just been waiting for something to let me go for. I had the one midwife, she was on maternity leave for several of my appointments and just came back recently. I had another midwife taking care of her patients in her absence that I sense...
I've been digging through a site with Florida laws regarding midwives and haven't found anything where it says they're required to trace you down and track you if you're "high risk" to make sure you are getting prenatal care elsewhere. I sure hope that's the case and that they aren't required to do that. They may try to intimidate/bug me until I give in and prove to have made an appointment. They are trying to shove me onto an obgyn that has a lot of questionable reviews...
Btw, I'm 35 weeks-- wish I was closer to my due date so they didn't have so much time to pester me.
Hey folks! Jumping right in... Due to taking an opiate painkiller for migraines a mere two times over the course of my pregnancy, my midwife has let me go. I've been considered too "high risk" to continue under her care, she thinks my daughter has a chance to come out addicted. I highly doubt this after much research, but she says I need to switch to an ob that takes high risk patients late in pregnancy. I wasn't getting along the greatest with her and really think she...
