My husband and I both have been feeling fetal movement for almost 2 weeks now, there's almost always a response to us probing the belly. We even felt what we think was an elbow pushing back on us yesterday. The doctor wasn't in when I went for my appointment and all the lady did was a urine test and weighed me and said she tested it twice that it was negative. Can LVN's be hired in a prenatal office, would that be why she didn't take my blood for a more sensative test? She didn't palpate me or anything. She even got insulted when I was upset over her telling me I wasn't pregnant, I couldn't hide the hurt so I stoped talking to her, and she got all anoyed in her voice and anoyingly said ok thank you. She told me the test was negative in a very insisative way, and didn't even ask why I thought I was pregnant. I had to of gotten pregnant with an IUD in since it was taken out only 3 weeks ago so that we could have a planed pregnancy. But one week later, I put my hands on my belly trying to figure out if I was pregnant or just gaining weight and a baby turned around and pushed up on my hands. This is my third child I know exactly how this should feel, and I have had fetal movement. I was angry she wanted to tell me I wasn't pregnant and not even touch me. That's why I am wondering if she wasn't qualified to do anything. When I mentioned the IUD she was shocked and said oh my god all worried for me. IUD's don't present problems for pregnancies as long as they are taken out and don't hinder the placenta attachement. That's it, the baby can be carried without any harm caused by the IUD. I felt like I had more medical knowledge than this woman, if she knew that she shouldn't have been shocked but reasuring me instead. That's when I turned away from her since she was upsetting me, and couldn't help but to shake my head in disbelief that she didn't know this. That really irratated her. She sent us off to the hospital to have my blood drawn and schedualed a sonograhm at the hospital for next week. My husband talked to the staff at the hospital and had them schedual me for a sonograhm for tomorrow morning. The first time I went to this office we waited for over an hour, it's not medicade so that shouldn't be happening, even medicade offices do better than that on average. We will find a new doctor office tomorrow, or get a midwife. Sorry for the long venting I'm really upset with these people. I keep having the worry of a miscarriage creep into my mind ever since that lady said all that at the doctor's office. She was insensative and not reassuring at all. I almost want to go back and let them know not to do that to anyone else. What do all of you think about this? Do you think me and my husband are over reacting to the situation? He feels the same as I do, and was upset with the lady for how she was talking to me. I never had an actuall period after removing the IUD, I had to have already been pregnant since one week later isn't possible to feel movement from a pregnancy. I had some light spoting on two differnt weeks, but that's it. I think she was thinking it wasn't possible for me to be pregnant and we were getting ahead of ourselves. But I know fetal movement and we are pregnant. Ugh I just got so rattled from that lady's attitude with me. Opinions please, I feel like I'm going crazy waiting for the morning to come for my sonogram.
