A high risk doctor will be good for your situation, as they deal with all types of issues during pregnancy. I was ina situation in my 1st pregnancy where I ran a high risk of stillbirth due to a liver condition and my OB was way too relaxed about it, I brought some concerns to her after being in the hospital at 22 weeks pregnant and she ignored me..she was rude and horrible. So I went to my family doctor and demanded another OB...someone who would give respect! That was at 30 weeks along...and I was very happy with my decision!! So trust your instinct...and don't be worried about hurting anyones feelings...your the one carrying the baby!! Praying for you!!! Keep us updated!!
I had the opposite problem as you: my first doctor was all too willing to see complications where there weren't any and it was stressing me out so I switched to a more laid-back doctor at 30 weeks. Now that I am having complications (preterm contractions ) I still feel like I made the right choice switching to someone who will take them seriously but won't overreact. I'm happy you were able to make a switch and I hope your next appointment goes well and you get answers!! Pregnancy is stressful enough without unhelpful doctors
I would go straight into hosptial as what you are explaining with the dizziness, blurred vision and with the swelling ARE signs of pre-eclampsia. My friend has been in hospital since last week with it and they havent let her out of their sights. She started being induced yesterday. I think if your doctors aren't helping then thats the only thing you can do and leaving it a week until you see your new doctor is silly as it can get alot worse. x
I just got off the phone with the hospital Lab,
apparently they DO have my results, and my doctor is just REALLY horrible.
had to call her and ask her to call the lab... they couldnt give me the results over the phone... i hope she actually calls!
