I found out questioning my dr isn't good *rant
Since I'm not sure if this baby will be early or not I thought I'd ask a few questions about the birth yesterday. They went over like a lead balloon. I didn't even ask them all just bc I knew it would only get worse.
First I told her I was worried about using cytotec again if I needed it like I did last time. She said they "always" wait 4 hrs between cytotec and starting pitocin. I know that they gave me additional cytotecs after they started pitocin. So she looks in my chart and the hospital never recorded what time the 1st cytotec was. So there is no proof that they followed their procedures. She didn't bother to say anything about the additional doses. Then I asked what other options there were and she said that cytotec was the best and that "No matter what, labor hurts." Gee, I had no idea
: I was more worried about multiple doses and uterine rupture.
Then I had the audacity to ask about declining the eye goop stuff. So I got a lecture about how she can't predict which of her "stable, loving couples" are having affairs and that it's standard policy for every baby because it can be "devastating in the newborn". So I asked why we even bothered to do the std testing on me if I was going to be treated like I had one no matter what (probably not a good choice on my part, lol). So she said something like they probably have a waiver for it if I ask. So I guess I'm going to have to call the birth center (attached to the hospital) and see who I talk to over there about all this. I didn't even bother to ask her about oral vit k instead of the injection.
The thing is that she's a really nice person and last time was totally cool (except last time I didn't question anything). I really don't think I should switch drs at this point given all the weird things that are going on, but I just didn't think she is used to having someone not follow the rules.
ok, I'm done ranting now. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. Nobody irl ever questions anything so I'm the "rebel" and nobody really understands why I'm making any fuss and not just following the rules. (Except dh who just knows that I over think/research everything and if I make up my mind on something I've got a good reason.)
