  • Talk to her superior! Of all the times to make someone feel bad, pregnancy is hard enough!

    I doubt your husband feels that way, you're carrying his baby! Make sure he knows how much this woman has hurt you, though, he may try extra hard to counteract her evil!

  • i dont understand this woman because she is my size now and not pregnant she could be even a bit bigger than me, and i have to go in for blood for high blood pressure and i really dont want to go i leave there feeling ashamed, and i could seriously cry i have been thinking about this for 2 days fearing the blood draw, she will say WOW YOUR BIG! talk behind my back, so i have not only her i have others looking at me too, i know one woman did get angry once, because i heard her say your bigger than her, and she got angry when it was my turn, and just kept putting me down. talking loudly so others can here she couldnt beleive how BIG i was

    So now i really feel like crap...I have no SELF confidence, at all, ....i feel ugly
    and if i feel this way i know hubby must feel it too right?
    i dont even want him to touch me lately....i feel horrid,

  • Wow, let me make sure I understand this correctly. She, a medical professional, discussed your weight and size in relation to your pregnancy with other patients? I'm floored. Totally inappropriate. You should simply call the lab and ask who you need to talk to in order to discuss a problem with an employee. There must be someone who manages the lab staff.

  • No...Their talking about how BIG i am, baby bump wise and bascially thinking im a big fat cow,

    I was 178 when i started, so add it not small, maybe i do need to crawl under a friggin rock, until i pop this baby

  • You make your complaints to the lab manager.

    If the is the one drawing your blood, when you go in and see the receptionist you ask that someone else do it. I find it hard to believe that she is there alone...generally there is a CLS in the back (the one running the tests) and they are more than qualified to draw blood as well.

    This woman's behavior is unacceptable, and aside from personal reasons, no medical professional is allowed to speak to a patient about another patient.

    If none of this has helped you, ask your doctor to recommend a different lab for you to go to for the remainder of your pregnancy, and if he refuses, inform him you refuse to go back there.

  • Actually it probably doesn't bother your DH at all. Men don't think like us, my DH seems to think all the weight I gained so far is sexy and I'm NOT small. I would talk to her supervisor or who ever is in charge of the office. I wouldn't stand for someone I didn't even know putting me down like that, especially if she's bigger than you and not pregnant! If you're feeling down about yourself maybe you should talk to your DH and ask him. You may just be surprised!
