My blood is boiling!!!

I have decided that I am angry!! Yep, that is right...pretty mad. I am mad at my nurse and my doctor's office. Well, I am sure you are saying DUH right now considering the way I have been treated at this office. I am mad at them for a whole other reason!! I am not sure if I have said this before, but it takes a lot to get me mad. My nurse told me that I could not have any extra beta tests before my first u/s. She said I will have to stress like the rest. What a cold hearted woman!!! Does she even understand how hard this is for me. And what if I need to be monitored more closely..I mean I did miscarry last time I was pg and it was during this time. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that this would be the time to keep an eye on me!!!!!!! So I have been forced to buy pg tests and use them instead. And these tests aren't going to tell me anything b/c they only measure a small amount of hcg and I need to know that my hcg is doubling!!!!! I am just so darn angry right now. Part of me wants to call and just make an appt. and get a beta test. The last time after my miscarriage, I asked my doctor if I could do more beta tests the next time and he said yes. Who does she think she is anyway??? I am so done with this place. I cannot wait until I can say goodbye to this place and get another doctor. And if I could right now I would!!!!! Man my blood is boiling thinking about this, so I better stop and calm down!! Just had to vent.

So far I don't think I have any pg symptoms. Especially not like the ones I had before. I don't even want to debate in my head whether I am having pg symptoms or not. I know that I have no control over this and whatever is going to happen will happen. I just wish that my nurse could understand that having a few more betas would give me some peace of mind instead of waiting two weeks and walking around like I am pg the entire time. I mean, one could get really excited during that time...and then find out there is nothing to be excited about. Here I go again..better hush up!!

I would call and demand a beta.Or at the very least remind them that the doctor said you could.You could leave him a message saying what you want and bypass her altogether.

Alot of the Dr's over here don't even do Beta's, they test for pregnancy but also rely on other levels. The last time I was pregnant I asked for one and my Dr looked at me very weirdly but agreed.

Personally I think you need to just let it slide and relax. Even if you keep having Beta's and your numbers don't double what are you going to do?

Don't get worked up, relax and enjoy being pregnant, what will be will be and nothing you can do and no amount of tests you can request will change that.

I agree. If it will help ease your mind call them and tell them the doctor said you could do another beta test, and don't talk to that snotty nurse. I am so sorry that you have had to deal with these uncompassionate people. Remind them who is paying the bills, and tell them you want another test.(!!!)

I would definitely call and demand one. I had to insist and tell the nurse what the doctor had told me so that I could get one done. If she says no, asks to speak to the doctor directly or someone else.
