>First the good news. I passed the 3 hour glucose test. No GD for me! Yay!
Now the not so good. I’m considering changing OBs – at 30 weeks pregnant. My office had 2 OBs that they rotated patients between. Both were to be present at my C-section. A few weeks back, one of the OBs retired suddenly (something health related, supposedly). Ever since, it has been total chaos at the office and I haven’t seen the other OB at all for any of my visits. They have me with the nurse practitioner (NP). I feel rushed and like they aren’t paying that much attention. Example, I had to remind them of the Rhogam shot. At my last appointment (on Friday), they told me I’d be scheduled with the NP until I hit 36 weeks. I haven’t seen the OB in weeks as it is. I figured out that in the time I’ve been there (since 13 weeks), I saw the OB that retired once, the other OB twice, and all of my other appointments have been with the the NP. Does that seem right to you, cause it doesn’t to me. I mean, I passed my OB in the hall on Friday as I was leaving the office and I didn’t even recognize her at first. I feel like a total number to them.
I’m also wondering what happens if another person goes into labor when my C-section is scheduled now that they are down to one doctor. And will she be at her best with all this stress going on? DW and I are going over there to talk with the office manager this morning and figure out what the hell we should do. A part of me doesn’t really want to switch as I like the OB that’s still there, we’ve already scheduled the C-section, what if I move and don’t like the new person, etc., etc. But it’s really nerve-wracking to feel like they aren’t really paying attention either. I hope I can get some answers that satisfy me today. DW stayed home from work today so she can go with me and figure this out.
