Horrable cold and an insesitive doctor
Saturday morning I woke up with this horrable cold that I am still trying to get rid of. After going through the weekend in 90 degree weather during the worst part of the cold I get to deal with the worst imaginable coughing fits that have been killing me all day and all night long.
Anyway I spent all of Tuesday, tuesday night and Wednesday coughing my brains out as a result of that I had noticed Wednesday evening that I havnt felt my baby move since noon I of course tried what would be advised to me such as eating or drinking something sweet, laying on my left side, showering and nothing got this little baby to move. So at 8:00pm I called my doctor and was actually told "well I guess the only way to reassure you that your baby is fine is to bring you in to the hospital and let you listen to the heart beat".
Reassure me? give me a break I havnt felt my usually very active baby move in 8 hours, what a messed up thing to say.
Anyway I get to the hospital and they put me a birthing room hook meup to the machine that monitors the heart rate and contractions anyway her little heart was beating at 140 like it should but every time I coughed it would drop down to 120 and then raise up to 160 and go back to 140. I was monitored for about an hour then that wonderful moran doctor of mine comes in the room and tells me that I have a happy baby that just wants attention and that I can go home. You know Im not doctor but I dont think this baby is too happy if her heart rate is fluctuating so much but what the hell do I know.
Also I was told that I shouldnt be so conserned about a drop in fetal movement. My mom was there with me and she even thought this lady was a totaly idiot.
I know that my concerns were valid and that I was in no way wrong for going to the hospital, I just cant believe how badly I was treated, like I was stupid and just wasted the doctors time. Sorry to just go on and on I just really needed to complain about this it really bothered me.
