We had a doctor’s appointment end of week 14 and I was hoping to see the baby and maybe even find out the gender. I’m soo curious!!! The best part was to hear the baby’s heart beat. The doc said, the baby is moving and active and the heartbeat is around 150. Other than that the appointment was rather boring, we didn’t see the baby and they just took tons of blood and other things for tests.
Since we didn’t find out the gender and I.CAN.NOT.WAIT to know, I made an appointment with a place, who does 3D pictures and also determination of gender for this week friday.
This week is week 15 and it started great, I was feeling good! I still go to bed (or fall asleep on the couch) early, but I had more energy during the day.
Unfortunately Thursday morning at work, I noticed blood in my pants (sorry TMI) and asked a friend. Being a first time mom I didn’t want to freak out, but also she said, to call the doc, which I did. They said, the nurse will call back. 3 Hours later nothing, so I called back in the afternoon. They said, the nurse said, the doc will call. By the end of the day nobody called. I was upset, but luckily the bleeding stopped in the afternoon.
Since I had bleeding again Friday morning,my husband sent me to the doc so they have no choice but look at me. They sent me home (nobody looked at me) and to come back at 3pm for an ultrasound. Luckily again the bleeding stopped at lunch time. The ultrasound was in the same building, just a different floor. The technician didn’t say if she sees anything nor did she “feel comfortable” to tell me the gender. Oh man!! Afterwards she told me the doc will call.
Since it was 3:30pm on a friday, I just went to my doc’s office and asked. The receptionist told me all docs and nurses are gone! I was upset and this is when I turned into momzilla! I told her it is unacceptable to let me wait until Monday, who knows what’s going on! She said, the place who did the US has a doc who looks at it. So I went back there and was told, they don’t have a doc, but a radiologist who can not tell me anything, only my doc (who is already gone can). So I went back to my doc and told that the receptionist. She then told me, the only way to talk to a doc is to call after 5pm the office and I will be forwarded to the doc on call and maybe he can help. Say WHATTT???
I called that doc on call later on, he freaked out, that my doc’s office would say that, so some higher receptionist called me, that she will try to reach my doc, but most likely all is ok, otherwise the radiologist would have called her. Btw, she was out of the office already too! I haven’t heard from anybody and I’m pissed!
The bleeding stopped friday night and I don’t think it is anything serious, but the way they handled it, is totally wrong. Sorry about this long post, but I needed to vent!! I feel so furious, that they didn’t take this serious! Every book, every person tells me to check with the doc and that I didn’t overreact. But they just didn’t care! They knew in the morning when they gave me the US appointment that nobody will be there to evaluate. The hospital is right next door, they should have sent me over there! Arrghhhh!!!
And this is the long story of me turning into momzilla! I hope they will call me on Monday (as they promised) and I hope I can finally talk to the doc and tell him what happened (most likely he doesn’t even know about it).
And because of what was going on I cancelled the gender reveal and I still don’t know if it is a boy or girl! Arrghhh!!!
Thanks for letting me vent!! Pregnancy hormones don’t make me emotional (yet), they just make me very angry and mad all the time
