I am 17 weeks today and I posted before on the SCH event at 15 weeks. I was healing by 16th week but had a refresh "bright red episode" over the weekend, so continuing on bed rest and fingers crossed. My frustration is really now with the OB/Hospital arrangement. I like my OB - old, rude but to the point guy, but he sits in a small clinic affiliated with another hospital. So when emergencies like these arise, he sends me for better quality ultrasound to the hospital ER/Labor and Delivery transfer. As reputed as that hospital is, it is a new building. The first time I went there, I waited on the bed for 2 full hours before the tech hauled in the ultrasound machine. They told me they had only one machine between ER and L&D, so that's a typical wait. Second time, same thing. I raised some noise so they brought in a poor quality machine (but only after two hours) which my OB tried to operate but couldn't see much beyond the breathing babies.
I am just worried if this is how it's going to be in future for the remainder of my term. If I leave the hospital, I may need to leave the OB. That is the nearest hospital where I live. But I will suck it up if you think this is all typical wait routine. It's just strange, but I will live with it. Anyone been through this ? I am also planning to have a good chat with my OB today.
I don't know if 2 hours wait time is typical to wait on an ultrasound machine, but I would not want to wait that long.
If I were pregnant, I'd want to use the closest hospital.
