Here is my dilemma. I have had two miscarriages at 11-12 weeks. I had some abnormal lab work when I thought I was 15ish weeks but then an ultrasound showed my due date was off by two weeks and I am carrying twins. Since I had the two losses and it looks like the two babies share one placenta, my doctor referred me to a high risk obstetrician in Minneapolis. Derek and I went to see him today and he was not pleasant at all. This is my first pregnancy to go this far and so I had some questions. Not crazy stuff. Just about physical activity, sex and mostly what to be watching for as far as complications. This doctor actually sighed and rolled his eyes at me. I thought I was just being sensitive but Derek agreed that he was not nice to either of us.
I have to decide to stay with this guy or stick with my regular OB. Who I really like and has seen me through the two losses. My current doctor will care for me but he urged me to consider the high-risk doctor based on my history. Do I put up with the rude doctor for the well-being of the babies, or do I stick with a doctor I know, like and trust? I don't want to be foolish and would like some opinions. I would consider seeing the high-risk doctor's partner but the nurse was pretty firm that the one doctor should follow my case for the duration of the pregnancy. My doctor has be see everyone in his practice at least one time so the partners won't be strangers. This doctor said since I will probably have to have a c-section, that only he needs to see me.
