Grrr to on-call doctors.. and Getting to Know You
As you know from my previous post I have been having contractions on and off and I have lost some mucous over the last couple of days. No blood tinged, but I know that doesn’t necessarily matter. Anyway, last night I got a headache and I know that my Dr and the nurses at the hospital have asked if I have had headaches, so I have been looking out for them. I was also having contractions, again intermittent, but definitely there. I was also feeling kinda crappy. So I wanted to reassurance and called the after hours service for my Dr office, who said that the on-call would call me back.
So she did, I told her a very brief history of this pregnancy and described what I had been feeling. She acted like I was annoying her and spoke in a very condescending tone to me to only call if my contractions were 5 min apart. I said that my Dr said to call if I get 4 in an hour. She went on to tell me it doesn’t matter if I am carrying one or two babies the rule is the same. I said ok, I will time them. And THEN she says “a real contraction would be very painful. DON’T call unless they are painful. Have a good night.” AND THEN SHE HUNG UP!!! I started to cry and was so angry with her. I had calmed down a bit but when Josh got back from the gym I started crying uncontrollably. Luckily all of my issues stopped andthe babies were both moving with no problems, so I decided not to call L&D. I just wanted a little assurance, not “you idiot, don’t you know whether or not you are in labor?” NO I DON’T. This is my first pregnancy (which I told her) so it’s all new to me.
Bitch. Josh says I need to mention it to my regular Dr.
Ok enough of that. On to fun stuff. Feel free to steal…
Why did you start blogging? I originally started blogging to show off shoes and pretty things but it quickly turned into a blog about infertility and my struggles with it. It’s been a nice outlet…
Who’s the one blog friend that you would want to meet most in “real life”? Sorry, can’t pick just one! There are way too many. But you each know who you are 😉 And I love you all like sisters!
Why are you always concerned with losing that “extra 10 pounds” when chances are your husband/boyfriend/friends tell you that you look just fine the way you are? This is a funny question because I have never felt that way about myself. Even though I am hugely pregnant right now, I am not concerned with weight after pregnancy. Especially since my baby weight has all been in my belly. I’m ok with that.
What’s the one thing you wish guys could understand about you? My husband understands so much about me. The mood swings threw him off a bit though. We have very open communication though, so if something is bothering us we aren’t afraid to say it.
Tattoos. How many do you have and how many are visible when you wear your “everyday” clothes? umm lemme count… 7 I think? And most show in regular clothes. I have a shamrock on my heel, a 1/2 winged heart on my foot, Tigger on my ankle, an angel on my hip, a huge rose on the ball of my shoulder, a sparrow on the front of my shoulder, and an Egyptian symbol on the back of my shoulder. No, I’m not done either 😉
What was the best year of your life and why? The year Josh and I got married was great, but this year may rival that…
Name three things you would do if you were a man for one day. Ummm I don’t know. I don’t wanna be a man!
What’s your alcoholic drink of choice that usually raises a few eyebrows? I have always loved Margaritas. But I think ANY alcoholic drink I order at this point in my lifef would raise eyebrows…
