Here as mama to W (2/04), R (5/06), D (7/09), and J (12/9/12!), co-parenting with my DH
I WOH part-time, am a doula & childbirth educator, home/unschool, and hope we are nearing the center of chaos
Ok, back to my question. Re: the foley, do you think their motivation was:
A) more $$$ for the hospital
B) new intern needs practice inserting a foley
C) with a catheter already in place i'm nearly prepped for a d&c
Is this something that has happened to anyone else?
After 2 ultrasounds by an extremely rude tech, who kept telling me that I could NOT be as far along as I said because the baby wasn't developed enough... WELL DUH! I WAS HAVING A MISCARRIAGE FOR A REASON!!! The finally sent me back to the ER to tell me what I already knew.
The foley doesn't fill up the bladder though, it keeps it empty.
Best Wishes, Jessi
