Ok, maybe I just had a really thorough doc last time, or it was because I was "high risk" or whatever, but I am really pissed off about the doc today!
I had my monthly check up. Literally the doc was in there for about 2 minutes. She got me mixed up with another patient (saying "How is your heartburn? Any better now?") I told I hadn't been experiencing heartburn....she said oh, I thought you were someone else.
Then she proceeds to tell me that she'll see me at my 28 week apt, in 4 weeks. Well, in 4 weeks I was supposed to be 29 weeks. I told her. She said no, I'm due June 26. This is the first I've heard of this!
I explained to her that I was due on June 21. She looked at my chart and hemmed and hawed, then said the 26th was based on my LMP (period) date. I was like ... I haven't had a period in years and years, how is that the case?
Then she said the ultrasound tech was wrong when she told me June 21, and that we were gonna go with June 26. And that it didn't really matter anyway (really-it doesn't, but I just didn't like her answer)
Anyway, what happens at your OB check ups? Do they usually at least listen to the heartbeat? Measure your fundal height? At mine they do a pee test, do weight, take my blood pressure and that's about it!
