I've just been feeling a little uncomfortable since my 12-week visit yesterday with the nurse practitioner. First of all, I felt like she was talking down to me the whole time I was in there. I won't bore you with all the details, but I think what bothered me the most was how I felt about my age (40). I have four kids and she asked me quite rudely, "Will this be your last?" Although it will be, I really felt it was inappropriate for her to ask me, especially in the tone she used. Maybe I am just being sensitive (lately I cry at almost anything, but not this :)), but she just rubbed me the wrong way. Unfortunately, in the practice I go to, they require you see the nurse practitioner for certain visits, and right now they are short one doctor. She is also new to the office since my last pregnancy. The whole time I felt very uncomfortable with her and her mannerisms. I just needed to vent. Has anyone ever felt this uncomfortable with a doctor/nurse? Thanks for listening.
