This really just calmed me down so much and brought me back to reality.
I wanted a doctor to test my progesterone levels due to this being my 5th pregnancy and 2nd child. And the first OB, told me I was crazy and that I was having false positive test results at home and never really had a loss! THE NERVE! She told me it was due to some antibody and told me to go look it up at home. I did, and she was WRONG, those antibodies aren't even present in urine. Go back to med school lady! So then I've been running around getting blood tests and Kaiser throws you around to nurse after nurse just to be able to make an appt!
My first was a birth center transfer to hospital after 43 hours with failure to progress, still born vaginally 12 hours later.....and it cost us an arm and a leg, so I'm worried about having to pay homebirth midwives and the back up doctor if it happens again, or just the out of pocket cost for homebirth if it does work out. :(
I have the option of using a CNM at Kaiser Sunset in Los Angeles that is supposed to be really naturally minded and she has an acupuncture business outside of Kaiser, which sounds nice. I just have to be put through so much BS to even get an appt. with her.
But thanks ladies, I'm not gonna worry about any of this anymore!
