Dr. Disappointment

Well I had my first prenatal visit yesterday. According to everything I read, it should have been the longest visit ever to my Ob/Gyn, I have to say, if that was the longest I would hate to see all of my follow-up. They only scheduled 30mins! Hello, I'm a scared 1st time mom, I have tons of questions. The doctor seems irritated that I even had questions. I know I made him run late. They struggled to take my blood and then I preceded to pass-out after the blood was draw. this takes time. I know that was something they didn't plan for. (Like I did!) But in general I was just disappointed with the whole thing. I think I'm going to give the Raliegh Birth Center a call. I'm not cool with being treated like a number. This is my child and while I believe I could have a prefectly fine birth with the doctor I saw yesterday, I think I deserve better.


  1. Totally find another doctor Martha. That's not okay treatment. We're so excited to come visit you guys this weekend.

  2. Damn right you deserve better. This is a very vulnerable time. Keep doctor jumping until you find the one that is just right. Ask around and I am sure you'll hear a good recommendation. Congrats agaiN!
