Perinatal Crap!

Perinatal Crap!

I naively signed up for the screening to check for genetic and birth defects. I guess I wasn’t really paying attention much when Jan talked about it, but basically I knew I needed an ultrasound and some blood work. She said the Perinatologists office would call me to make an appointment.

Today, I finally get a message from them, so I give them a call back and they proceed to tell me when my appointments are….which are smack dab in the middle of the day and BAD!

I tried to change the times, but of course there was a lot of drama trying to get that changed and they “just didn’t have any openings,” blah, blah, blah. In the end, I have to acutally take a whole day off to take care of this bullshit and I was kind of annoyed by it.

Wrong attitude, I guess, cause basically the nurse made me feel like I was already a bad mother for not wanting to take a day off of work to check and see if my baby has any defects.

AAcck!!! I’m pregnant and hormonal and I swear to God I would have slapped, Lisa, if I were the slapping type. Or at least, I would dry heave all over her….

Sorry- had to vent….

PS- Good Luck to my good friend Ellen, tomorrow! She’s got a BIG appointment!!
