While this isn't a perfect solution it is a solution that hopefully will work. Dr. Beasley called my home phone while I was out yesterday getting a tree to let me know that they are going to open an investigation up on Dr. Saunders. In the meanwhile since she will be the only doctor in the clinic on Monday and my appointment is on Monday Dr. Beasley has moved me over to the OB clinic.
I will be seeing Dr. Curlin at 1030 hrs on Monday for an ultrasound. He is actually Dr. Beasley's boss or so he said. I still have a bit of anxiety in moving over to OB this soon as J and I were discussing actually picking an OB off post since the OB on post is crowded with patients that it is hard to get seen, especially if you have a possible high risk pregnancy.
I might not be considered high risk.
Why? I'm not sure. After looking over all the guidelines I thought for sure I'd fall into the high risk category under the weight (200 lbs or more) , age (over 35) , asthma, thyroid, and hypertension (long standing at 4+ years of being on meds) issues. Seems that because they are so over crowded I'd be only considered high risk if I were also carrying twins, of which we don't know if I am or not as of yet for sure.
I am hoping that my pregnancy will get the much needed care it deserves as I'd hate to lose a pregnancy due to hypertension because they can't fit me into their busy schedules. Yes that is a big scare to me. I spoke with Maternal Fetal Medicine two years back and they said I had a 50-50 chance of surviving a pregnancy. A risk I'm willing to take. So to not be considered high risk just blows my mind. I'd love to have an uncomplicated pregnancy where I only had to be seen maybe four times!
I am hoping that Dr. Curlin will be willing to send over the results from the ultrasound and TSH blood draw to PNW. I do have a fax number to give him and have called over to PNW to let them know about the change of time and change of doctor. They are glad that I'll be seen by a different doctor as they know I've had problems, so have they, with Dr. Saunders in the past.
