I'm 16 weeks pregnant have had a few scares with bleeding and got a horrible rash all over from the parvovirus. I also contracted toxoplasmosis in the same time but my doctor doesn't know what to do ( so she says) and it has taken her 3 weeks so far to speak with the specialist. This is my first pregnancy and I am more concerned than she is but they refuse to return my calls! What can I do?Answer Question

I am in total agreement with the other posters. Whether or not your doctor is concerned with the health & welfare of you & your unborn baby, you have EVERY right to be. Find a doctor who is willing to listen & do something about what is going on. With my second pregnancy I was experiencing unrelenting horrible abdominal pain so my DH rushed me to the ER & my doctor just sent me home with Tylenol (which had not worked before the ER, I don't know why she thought it would work at this point), 5 weeks later I was back in the ER because I was having a miscarriage that could have been prevented had my pain been taken more seriously, not just some crap about ". . . when you're pregnant pain is normal. . ." Best Wishes, Sweetie!
