The only reason I am seeing an OB is because my DH isnt comfortable with a m/w.... i would go for a UC at this point, I dont care.... I might just make it one without anyone knowing.
I used Clomid 100mg to get pregnant, and we had a lot of problems with infertility. A few too many m/c scares, but fortunately, everything turned out fine. I go in the doc a few weeks ago for a "monthly" checkup, and because I still wasnt up to my pre-preg weight, they wanted to do a growth scan of baby. They said she was too small at 35weeks only being 4 pounds or so. Threw me in the high risk clinic, where there are only 4 doctors. I am seen in a military hospital with a lot of different doctors in the OB clinic..... I saw maybe 2 of them more than once, other than that, its always been a different doctor.
Ok, so as of 3 weeks ago, I am going twice-weekly to get a NST, have an appt., and a quick scan to check fluid/blood flow from the placenta...... ect.....
I go in today, I have my second growth scan..... baby is over 5 pounds, and I am not sure if they said 5lb2oz, or 12 oz, but either way, over 5 pounds, which is cruical to them, so yay for baby growing,
even though i am losing weight!
So, the doctor comes in today, and said"So I put you on the schedule for the 31st.""Dr. Hill, I have all my appts up until Jan 2nd already set up""NO, the 31st to deliver""Childbirth is a natural thing, why cant I just come in when I go into labor?" even with that, i had full intentions of laboring as MUCH as possible at home, so when I got to the hospital, I'd be damn near the pushing stage, and would avoid as many unnessecary interventions as possible. This was my plan all along, being that Im even going to the hospital in the first place."Well, when you come in on Wednesday (the 26th) we will check your cervix, and when you come in on the 31st, we will decide at that point whether to give you the cervidil or pitocin"Then the stupid nurse chimes in with "Hey, at least you'll get a tax break if she is born before midnight on the 31st!
Are they friggen serious? I talked to another nurse who I really like there, and she explained it with it being a high risk clinic, and only 4 doctors, they like to have control of when the patients will deliver. So basically, when its conveinent for them so they dont get dragged out of bed at 4am or on a Saturday afternoon. So, they INDUCE their high risk pts at 39weeks. I even tried explaining that I didnt need the increased risk of not progressing on "their" schedule, because I am trying very hard with all of my might to avoid a c-sec, which is an option for me, if "i would like one"
PPPFFFHHHHHH........... These people are ridiculous.
"Oooops, DH, was I supposed to go to the hospital today to get induced, and have our daughter cause thats when its conveinent for the doctors? Hey, DH i have a better plan..... lets sleep in, and enjoy the new year, and turn off the phones...... "
They sooooooooooooooooo cant make me go in!!!!!!!!!
I feel better now! Sorry ladies..... this was just extremely frustrating!!!!!!
