My first son was born 4 years ago, at 35 weeks. I had developed PIH (high blood pressure), which apparently my doctor had been tracking during the three previous appointments but never felt the need to alert me too. I am so grateful for my little boy. I love that child so, so much. But I hated the entire experience of his labor and delivery because I barely remember any of it (I was put on magnesium). Well now, I am currently pregnant with my second son. I decided to go back to the same doctor, giving her the benefit of the doubt, hoping things this time would be different...and they weren't. I went with my sis to her doc's appointment today..did you know if you have had a pre-term birth you are supposed to be given progestrone shots? I had no idea! Never heard any mention of it from my now former doctor. I can't believe that. Also, with my first son, who only weighed 4 pounds at birth, I tore up high. This baby is measuring even larger, and my doctor was still on the fence about whether or not to do a vaginal delivery vs. a c-section. Maybe it's just my hormones talking, but she wanted me to only carry to 36..so at four weeks out, shouldn't you know how I 'm delivering?
Has this happened to anyone else? Has anyone else ever had to switch their doctor?
