Unhappy Annoyed... and TMI

I'm gtting rather annoyed with my OB's office. Sometimes I wish I could talk directly to my Dr bc she knows the situation, but NO, you gotta talk to the nurses who know nothing, then THEY talk to the Dr and the nurse then gets back to you and it all takes HOURS longer than it should! UGH!

Friday evening we went grocery shopping. When we got home I noticed some spotting, nothing major but I called the nurse advisor line anyway, just in case. Basically she said to stay off my feet and don't do too much physical activity, to include in the bedroom... She connected me to my Dr who happened to be on call that night and she told me the same thing, to dcall back if it got worse or if I started cramping.

It lasted all day Sat and by that night it was heavier. Sunday morning it was just as bad so I called the nburse line again adn they told m the same thing, but that if I wanted to come in to Urgent Care and risk getting the flu that it was up to me. Also I was supposed to call my OB to to givce an update.

I decided against going in even though peace of mind at this point would be MORE than wonderful. All day Sunday was all sorts of colors, consistencies, and amounts of bleeding and by night it was pretty bad again. This morning I had to take the kids to their swimming lessons and called the Dr when I got back. Their message said theywould try to get back to me w/in 3 hours
 
A littl over 3 hours later I FINALLY got a phonecall and it was the nurse asking what was going on. I told her the whole story and she wastrying to figure out why they made me an app at 8 weeks when usually they don't schedule until 12 weeks (I'v never heard this before and this is my 4th baby!) So now I'm waiting AGAIN for a phone call back to find out if I'm having an U/S tomorrow or a regular app or ifthey are going to reschedule things all together...

UGH!!!!!!

If you got this far, you're awesome and thank you!! Sorry about th horrible typing. I'm on my BIL's laptop since I'm supposed to be resting and off my feet. His E doesn't work well and the spacebar is super annoying!!!

Well, the nurse called back after almost an hour and said my Dr says we're going to keep my appointment tomorrow, she'll talk to me first and most likely get me in for an U/S to make sure all is good!

The bleeding did calm down today to next to nothing, but I wanna make sure it's going to stay that way or better!
