[baby update] 35 weeks - a phone call and a headache

Today started off just like any other. Tony went to work, Sadie and I hung out - by the way, she now tries to do the Itsy Bitsy Spider when I sing it to her - so cute! Anyways, its now her naptime, I've been resting, crocheting, and having lunch. It was all great and wonderful, until the phone rang.

At first I thought it was the timer I set for the buger I was making, but no, no it was my doctors office in chilliwack. They hadnt seen me in a while, and wanted to follow up- thats fine.

Apparently my ultrasound reports from the hospital in chilliwack were not being faxed to my vancouver doctor. The doctor who needs these ultrasounds. The doctor I asked at every appointment to have the reports sent to!

How do I know this? Well, my chilliwack doctor was making sure someone was following up with me about the low amniotic fluid levels they measured at the last ultrasound. HUH??? I wasnt told any of this, and I'm certain my vancouver doctor would have talked to me about it had she received those reports. So I semi calmly called the hospital, and had them send in the reports that they didn't fax to my vancouver doctor. I'm so BOILING MAD because I asked every time for them to send them to her, and gave the info for my vancouver doctor each time. They nodded and smiled and said they would. LIARS

So now, I'm upset, I'm pretty angry, I'm super worried, and I'm stuck waiting for a phone call to see if things are really urgent.  I'm gonna try and not worry, and drink a ton of water in the meantime. Oh, and Google = not your friend, especially when you look up medical crap.

Ug. Thats ridiculous. I'm sorry sweety

And yes, googling your own medical stuff never goes well. Cause really after the first sentance you get into the stuff that only happens like once in a blue moon, yet they feel they have to tell you all about it anyway.

Oh no! I hope everything turned out alright. Why wouldn't they tell you about low amniotic fluid... seems kinda important. Yeah. Google can scare the crap out of you. Looking forward to an update from this.
