Well, I'm 28 weeks now. What a week. I won't go into all the problems I had, it would take too long. I spent our anniversary and Mother's day just sitting in a hospital bed. At one point, I had a doctor come in because we had complained to the charge nurse, and the doctor, who I had never met before and didn't know anything about me, tried to lecture me on what could happen. When I tried to explain to her that I had done this 6 times already, she cut me off telling me that I was treating her unprofessionally. When I told her that I was ready to leave, she threatened that my insurance wouldn't pay for anything if I left.

So come Monday, I began making phone calls, trying to get my care transferred back to the doctor who saw me with my other pregnancies. The one nurse, who remembered me, said it wouldn't be a problem but when I called back trying to set up an appointment, a different nurse told me I had to have my current doctor call them. Well my current doctor wouldn't because they were trying to keep me there. Finally, my dh called patient relations and put a complaint in. Not an hour later, my nurse comes in with discharge papers. No orders other than bedrest.

So Wednesday, I go in to my OB and tell her I just need a referral. Well, she tells me that in her orders from the hospital, it states that I am to have NST's twice a week and biophysical profiles once a week starting at 28 weeks which is funny because I had been trying to get them to do that and they wouldn't start them until 32 weeks. So she gives me the referral but I still can't get an appointment, so the nurse calls down and tells them that I am extremely high risk and urgent and I need an appointment asap. So now I have an appointment for next Tuesday.

So I guess I've learned something from all of this. Follow my gut feeling. I kept thinking it was so much closer at this hospital, 15min away, instead of having to drive an hour away. I'm sure my doctor has heard all about my fiasco but hopefully he'll be flattered that I'm willing to drive that far to see him instead of lecturing me on getting pregnant again. Only 6 more weeks to my goal.

I am so glad you are getting somewhere with someone..it's about time! Sounds like your current doc is not what you need and you needed someone who knew you. I too am in that mid way between a doc who cant care for me properly and no doc at all. My old docs are clear out at Jordan Valley and my new doc is right around the corner at Alta Vew. They are kind of hinting that they want me to be seen at IMC, but the docs there don't think it's necessary....so what now? I am not much better off than you girl!
