another appointment

I had another doctor's appointment today.  Again, I didn't get to see my doctor.  This is very different compared to when I had Beth.  She is the same doctor; I loved her! Wait, change to present tense, I love her!  However, one of the reasons I enjoyed having her for a doctor was because A- I always got to see and talk to her when I came in and B- I always got an ultrasound. 

Well, so far, I haven't seen my doctor since my loss, and today, I didn't get an ultrasound.  The equipment was broken, and the lady who saw me didn't know how to use  the "big fancy" ultrasound.  In fact, today's visit all the way out to the big city was a bit pointless.  I saw a physician's assistant, I think, and besides checking my pee, taking my blood pressure, and weighing me (blah!), all we did was talk about my past history and whether or not I wanted to try for VBAC or just go C-Section.

Oh well, at least I got a refill on my zophran.  I go back in two weeks for an ultrasound, for sure.  Wonder if I'll finally see my doc then...


  1. Hoping you get what you need out of your next appointment.... Glad to hear things are going well. ((hugs))

  2. Sorry it didn't go as planned today hun! (((hugs)))

  3. Don't doctors know we NEED their presence and an ultrasound for our SANITY! I'm sorry it didn't go as planned but so glad you are still doing well!

  4. I came across your blog through deserving grace. I can relate to your story. Although I am a grandmother now I had trouble carrying babies. My daughter was stillborn and still named her for the certificate, although not naming her was not even going to be option for me, that was her name. Not a day goes by that she is not with me in my heart and mind. She would have been 37 this past Dec.2010. I had several miscarriages after that also. My first marriage was abusive so I got out of that. My husband of 35 years now is great and we managed to have two beautiful sons, although we almost lost our second son at seven months. But he survived and is now 32 with 1 girl and 4 boys of his own. Our eldest has three sons. So we were amply blessed with eight grandchildren and have custody of two our grandsons(eldest sons),his first born was adopted out, the girls parents would not let us have him (she was underage). So as hard as it is to raise two boys at this age, I feel so blessed to have them in my life and know this was God's plan for us to have them. I pray everything goes well for you, I know about needing your doctor and ultrasounds. When I got pregnant with my first son I was a nervous wreck. I wanted this child so bad and was frightened until the day he was put into my arms and told he was healthy. I was just as nervous for my husband, wanting to give him a child so bad too, and praying we would be blessed to be parents. He is a great dad and grandfather.
