Ugh! Where to begin.
Ok, first things first..are you feeling better, physically? Did you ever wind up seeing a dr or the nurse about what was bothering you initially? What did they say?
Agreed, that's WAY too long a wait time to get a call back. I would've been upset about that!
It is very frustrating to hear "if you are miscarrying there's nothing we can do about it" (as well as it being an insensitive thing to say), especially when, to your point, you have gone through so much to get here. Sometimes they are so blunt. I was told this, (in a nicer way than you were)- at around 11 weeks when we had to call the Dr over the weekend because I was having horrible cramping (turned out to be nothing) and still, hearing those words hurt, even though I knew the reality was that if I was miscarrying, they really couldn't do much.
I think I'm confused in that, if they are giving you a 50/50 chance of delivering with your practice or theirs..shouldn't they have you see the OBs at the other practice? That seems strange to me that they wouldn't. Maybe I'm missing something? I know at my practice there are 5 doctors and I have to see all of them at one point or another. It sounds like you would feel better finding a new practice. Still, you have time and if you're going to feel more comfortable then it's for the best.
As for the P4, I will say this. I was less than thrilled a few weeks ago when my reading came back at 38 which I was told was "normal". I decided with that number, I wasn't comfortable weaning (this was taken at 13w)
Since I have spent WAY too much time stressing about this F*^%$ng P4, and have tried to ask Drs questions about it and have received no support from them with my staying on, weaning off and testing me for it "at this point in pregnancy", (they test but with the eye roll and I'm over it) Therefore, I have made the decision for myself that I AM staying on it. I'm not going to ask for blood tests, I am staying on it and that's that!
I am 15w2d and SO much of this pregnancy I have spent worrying about weaning off P4 and test results- it makes me sad. I refuse to spend one more day worrying about coming off progesterone.
Since it can't hurt, I'm MUCH more relaxed staying on it and that's the end of it. I'll probably tell my dr when I see her again (I've been having appointments with the other drs in the practice and it hasn't come up yet, the one time it did, the dr said I didn't need to be on it past 12 weeks, you know, stop cold turkey, the whole drill) Or I might keep it to myself.
Bottom line for me: I lost 4 pregnancies and I was never on P4, this one I'm on it and knock wood, the baby is thriving...Coincidence? Well, no way am I chancing it. Nope- I am SOOOO not taking ANY chances... and now there's no more stress... w/that anyway
. You have to do what's best for you, be it stay on, or monitor/wean slowly and patiently. I hope you can come to a decision where you'll feel confident in your choice. You have to do whats best for YOU, as well as eliminate as much stress as you can!
I'm really sorry your having to go through this...it stinks!I hope you're able to find a more "with it" and sensitive practice!
