Seriously, why do they bother? What pisses me off more is that I rang up to book an appointment for myself and the receptionist told me I didn't need one because the dr would check me the same time as Theakston. I got there and my health visitor was passing through the waiting room so we had a chat and I asked if I'd be weighed (cos she said I looked like I'd lost weight) and she said yes. Anyway, we went in and he tested some of Theakstons reflexes I think but not all of them, checked his hips, weighed him, measured him and did his head circumference. I mentioned his colic and he basically said it didn't exist! He also kept waffling about how it was all just unnecessary paperwork etc. Thanks for making us feel like we're wasting your time, tosser. He asked (while I was undressing Theakston) if I was recovered and I said "well, I had a womb infection and mastitis and so I've only had 2 weeks off antibiotics so far but we seem to be doing OK" kind of joking. Then I asked about my B12 and he said he didn't know how much he trusted those studies etc. and then he told me if I wanted contraception advice that the nurses run a sexual health clinic at the doctors, gave me my red book and pretty much shoved me out the door and then left himself to take the scales back I had a massive list of questions to ask about stuff and I ended up not even being given a chance to ask them. He hasn't even written the dates and measurements in the red book, just put random dots on the centile charts so when the health visitors ask me how much he weighed etc. next week I'm not going to have a clue! I'm so angry!!
