I demanded some answers from my OB. He says that basically he is the dr and HE knows whats best...
I told him that I felt that he and his staff were NOT listening to me about my leaking fluid, funky discharge and how I am feeling...
NOW get this part....
HE DISCHARGED ME FROM HIS PRACTICE!!!!!!35/36wks and they discharged a "high risk" pregnancy...fucking bastards!!! i am sorry I have had to fight for quite a few years to get where I am today with weightloss surgery, (talking insurance companies), to needing a hernia surgery just to be told by the surgeon i was to fat to even have it, yes he said FAT and to him it would be a waste of time...
THIS isnt the first run in I have had with his practice and how they have treated me, me being who i am i give everyone time to prove to me that first impressions arent lasting...i have faith that things will change and be good....
Asked them WHY they didnt listen to me, "oh because what you have described to us is normal in our eyes" well it isnt for me...discharges, gooshes of fluid and blood, not feeling right, having contractions DUE TO dehydration etc...Everytime I would call and describe i get 'oh thats normal" and today he tells me that they dont even think it was fluid coming out but discharge..um im sorry i know the difference between discharge and fluid leakage...
the ONLY reason WHY I went to that practice is because my PCP said she trusted them in case ANYTHING would come up they would be all over it...i got a 15minute apology from her and her office manager today for the way they have treated me over there...i have a phone call going out to the "major complaint" dept of this hospital/
This isnt even due to hormones, because if it is, the dr wouldnt have an ass to sit on afterwards

sorry needed to vent...

You need to file a complaint with the medical board in your state and look to have his office stripped of their ability to work in the state you are in. People can apologize all over the place, it does not mean , they are making it on a genuine basis. It makes me wonder how many other expectant moms he has done this to.  It is disturbing to hear a doctor acted in this manner. Go for the board, and hit him and his staff where it hurts , their licenses.

Good for you for standing up for the best of your baby. File a complaint and get a new dr. This could be a blessing in disguise for you. No dr should ignore concerns of the pregnant mom, ever!
