So today was my 6 week pp check up (how depressing, right?) So my appt. was at 8AM this morning....I got there a couple minutes til 8 and they took me right back to a room....So I'm thinking...this is gonna be great, I'll be in and out in no time....Well, the minutes on the clock are just ticking away and I can *HEAR* the pregnant women in the rooms around me talking about their babies and everything with the other DRs...I start feeling the anxiety building up inside of me and I start to cry......FINALLY at 8:50 I had had enough and I gathered my stuff and walked out of the room....a nurse was in the hallway and asked if everything was OK...I said no and that I had waited long enough and I was leaving....

I went to the check out desk to TRY and pay my $35 co pay....at this point I was hysterical and could hardly breathe.....they wouldn't accept my payment and said they couldn't allow me to drive home in that condition.....the nurse and the office manager were trying to console me and they finally took me back into a private office and were trying to talk to me...

They apologized for my long wait and said that my DR was doing rounds in the hospital and that's why everything was taking so long.....I said I didn't care and that I just wanted to leave.....Finally at like 9:15 my DR came into the office and sat and talked with me...I was crying, she was crying, it was HORRIBLE She asked what she could do to help me and I looked her dead in the eyes and in a very angry voice said, "there is NOTHING that you or anyone else can do for me now.".....I went on to tell her how ANGRY I was at the MFM DRs for refusing to put in a cerclage at 18 weeks like I had REQUESTED......I know my words were filled with hate and anger and I am so sad for that....but I just lost it....

My OB ended up calling my Primary Care DR and request that I be seen TODAY to reevaluate the meds that I'm on.....so I now have an appt. with them at 11:45 today

I'm so mentally and emotionally drained.

I am so sorry you had to deal with that. You should never have had to wait that long to be seen and it is just such a hard circumstance to deal with around all the other pg ladies. You have every right to have gotten so mad and angry, I would have lost it too. They should have been listening to you all along. I am glad you are getting into the dr again today and I hope it helps. (((((( BIG HUGS))))))

Oh Brandi, I'm so sorry. That appointment is hard enough without having to wait while over-thinking and listening to everything going on around you. I'm so sorry it was rough. And no, I don't imagine it also being Tres due date made it any easier at all. Totally understandable that you were upset!

I'm so sorry you had such a bad day. It is completely understandable that you got so upset, I got upset just reading your post. I still feel the absolute heartache in your words, and I am just praying that you will be able to find peace and joy and God's plan will make itself known to you soon.

Brandi, i"m so proud of you for sticking up for yourself. I know it's hard, and you are angry right now, but you will have your baby. Good luck at your second appt. I'm sure they are going to tell you that these emotions are normal. I'd think it be strange if this didn't affect you.

ugh, Brandi, I am so MAD for you. I didn't know you had requested a cerclage, and they didn't even look into doing one. It's completely their fault and it makes me so angry.
You should have been a priority patient. Sometimes I wonder how Dr's so easily loose their compassion, or just check it at the door. They obviously haven't been through trials in their lives...
I'm so sorry you went through that today.
