Unhappy UGH

Before you read, here's your TMI warning...

Last night I had some bleeding (enough to turn the toilet water a color between pink and red, but nothing on the undies) and since I had a m/c in Nov I was kinda freaking out. Later on there was a little bit, but it was only slightly more than spotting from then until I went to bed. This morning it was kinda spotty and more brownish with red in it.

So this morning I called my Dr's office and asked to speak to Dr A's nurse. The receptionist asked me if it was a medical question and I said yes, reguarding pregnancy. She connected me to S who I've never HEARD of. I told S what was going on and she never even asked me my name (they ALWAYS ask your name so they can go into your file and what-not.) All she said was to lay down with my feet up and rest. I told her I had a m/c back in Nov and I asked if it was possible to come in and hear the heart-beat for peace of mind and she said no, it's too early, you can't hear a heartbeat until 12 weeks. That was the end of the conversation bc I was shocked that this woman wouldn't work with me any more than that.

S OBVIOUSLY doesn't know me, she obviously doesn't know my relationship with Dr A, and she obviously doesn't know I have 3 YOUNG kids at home or she wouldn't have been so open and shut about things. Dh just called me and told me I should call back and insist on talking either to my Dr or my Dr's nurse and if they connect me with the same person to insist on talking to someone else and even e-mail the office.

What should I do? I have an app next Friday, but there's no way I can wait that long, I'll go nuts!

S is nuts. Working with pregnancy EVERY DAY... You can usually hear the heartbeat of a little one at 8-10 weeks... especially if you are thin (as you are!) so you def. should be able to hear the heartbeat at 11 weeks!

I would call back and ask to speak with your doctor's nurse who you are familiar with.

I'm lurking here...but I would call the office back--for the sake of the way you were treated. I think it's irresponsible for anyone in a medical office to treat a patient who is obviously very concerned (Um, enough to call the office in the first place) disrespectfully. If you feel like you need to be seen, ask for an appointment. There's no reason you should be in a constant state of stress especially since you've already m/c not that long ago.

Thank you ladies. I thought that was the case with the heartbeat, but I figured she knows better than I do (I'm no Dr!)
I just e-mailed the office, explaining what happened. If I don't hear back soon I will also make a phone call and hope for better results than this morning.

First off
 

Second S is a nut she obviously got her school at a clown school and her bedside manner at a morgue! S makes me mad.
I know my m/c back in October the doctor was looking for a heart beat at 5.5weeks. So before well before 11 weeks there IS a heartbeat.
To just dismiss you like that is aweful especially not knowing ANYTHING about you
I sure hope you get an email soon and get in and get that peace of mind.I sure hope the spotting stops first though.
Keep us posted!
