Okay started bleeding heavily two weeks ago and cramping bad..went to ER baby fine f/u with my doc on Monday...he stated prolly from coughing (was sick) and placenta previa...stated it should stop in few days soooo called doc on Wed cuz did not stop and he stated well it will probably stop if u want to come in I will check you but I'm sure it's nothing so like dingbat didn't go in....then he goes out of town for tover a week and doesn't even leave another doctor in charge so all this past week he's out of town and I'm still bleeding...went to ER last night but sat for over an hr with 5 other ppl ahead of me and they didn't even call anyone back yet and they had amblance come in again so I left cuz I knew it would be hrs and hrs so now still bleeding...it's light but never stopped...mild cramping on and off and goes from bright red to dark red to brown with stringy stuff back to bright red...keeps changing...couple small clots i guesss? I have appt Thurs or I can prolly get in on Tues if I wait....should I wait or go back to ER? I mean, if I go to ER I doubt they'll tell me much other than if baby still has heartbeat which would be great to hear that but I have 3 kids at home so spending the night in the ER is a pain if I can wait it out.
So i wait it out and the office can't get me in cuz there booked cuz he's been gone for over a week...well, gee...really?? SO they want me to wait till my appt on thursday which means i'll be sitting for hours on Thursday or go to ER. Decided i'm not going to ER cuz all they tell me is if their is heartbeat not why i'm bleeding. So, i'm trying to find another doctor and will keep my appt on thursday..in the meantime i'm cramping even more but apparently that's not urgent. This is small town for you. It's very hard to even find another doctor but anything would be better than him i guess.

Honestly I would start looking for a different doctors office, one with multiple docs in it. As for now if you decide not to go to e.r try to stay off your feet as much as possible.
