I just had to vent about my experience at the hospital lab today in my new town.
At my last mw appt, she told me I should make an appt at the OBS clinic (I haven't been to the clinic yet, as we just moved, and the only thing she uses them for is routine tests and emergencies, etc.) she works with and get my Hemoglobin and Antibodies checked. So I called them last week, but the earliest appt I could get was Nov 2, so they sent a requisition to the hospital, as the bloodwork is *supposed* to be done before 28 weeks, which is today. So I went in. The req. had all kinds of other test on it, including a urinalysis, Rh test (these have already been done), and the GD screen, which I am not doing. The lab worker said she had to do exactly what was on the form, so I ended up leaving, wasting about 45 minutes of my day. So now I get to go to my appt next week, in a semi-confrontational mood.
To be fair, this clinic has never seen me, so they probably just figured I needed all these other tests, too. I just wish they'd stuck with what I asked for: Hemoglobin and Antibodies. Grrrr. I wish we were doing an UC. I like my mw, but I still feel drawn to UC. Maybe a big snowstorm will come and she won't be able to make it...
