  • I have, just because there was no other option, but I kept my good friend on the phone almost the whole time. When my husband was able to go with me, he did.

  • I haven't had to- but if I had to get to the hospital for an emergency I think I would call myself an ambulance to make sure I got there fast and safely.

  • I need my people around me......mother, step-mother, father, step-father, MIL, FIL, best friend..... I hardly ever go anywhere alone, so the hospital is a group visit for sure!

    I broke my arm when I was 8 mos. preg w/DD (our 1st) and I had seven people in there with me. Same as when I was dehydrated.

    We travel in packs, we do.

  • LOL @ WImsey "we travel in packs, we do." Sounds just like my family. lol

    I never went to anything alone. DH couldn't always get off work for my longer doctor's appts. Like the one where they do the diabetes test so my best friend took me. Between my mom, three best friends, hubby, bil's g/f I was NEVER alone. lol

  • I haven't had a scare or anything, thankfully.

    But my boyfriend or my mom has gone with me to every doctor's appointment. I'd rather have someone else in the room with me in case I can't remember everything I'm being told, lmao.

  • If you are in pain then you shouldn't take any chances by driving. If you have to call an ambulance then do it.

  • for regular visits I usually go by myself unless its a sonogram or something because my husband works a lot and goes to school but god forbid if we had a scare or something to worry about I would go with my mother in law but he would be there in a heartbeat!
