Am I being unreasonable? Stopping labor when they should not have!
(WARNING: SOME STRONG LANGUAGE INCLUDED!)
So I went into labor yesterday evening. Unfortunately my doctor was not on call. I was left with a doctor I do not like! I dislike him more now then before. He decided to stop labor. Yeah I was pissed, and I still am! My doctor said if I made it 36 weeks she would not take any steps to stop labor. She knows the tough time I am having carrying the baby with the tumor in my back and that is why I believe she assured me she would not stop labor if I made it 36 weeks. The baby is in the safe zone now.
I am pissed that the doctor that was on call last night stopped it and I’ll be 37 weeks in four days now! 37 weeks is considered full term. So I went in and sat for our five hours AGAIN and sent home. I hate hospitals and I told them if this isn’t it, if the baby doesn’t come tonight could you send me home to wait it out. The nurse said most likely but the damn doctor on call kept me waiting. First it was one more hour, then he asked for me to stay one more hour…still contracting during those hours…then he orders the shot to stop the contractions!!! I am so upset at that asshole! If he knew he wasn’t going to let me go he should have ordered the shot MUCH earlier and sent me home MUCH earlier! Fuck I am mad! (I am 75% effaced and dilated close to 3 they say now.)
My poor husband had to work this morning and we were kept at the hospital until after 3 this morning!
So today I woke up and the day started with contractions again. This baby wants to come and I wish they had let her come last night. The pain is getting unbearable for me now….
Pretty bad when you dream about taking your meds again! Am I being unreasonable here?
This is the plan though. I have two thoughts of action thought out regarding this.
I see my doctor tomorrow if I make it through the day without going into the major stage of labor. I’ll be sure to mark my chart that if I go to NOT stop the labor so if another doctor is on call during the weekend and I go into labor again they won’t stop it this time around.
I am having contractions today, right now actually. They are not a minute long yet and I can tolerate them (although my tolerance of pain is pretty high due to living with this tumor in my back) but I plan to wait until I can’t walk with the contractions to go in this time around. I feel major pressure because they said the baby’s head is VERY low. She’s been this low for over two weeks now. (They don’t seem to understand that the baby wants to come out damn it!) Waiting until the contractions are so bad I can hardly walk through them gives me a better chance of them not pulling what they did on my last night by stopping the process when they really should not have. I figure I am only five minutes from the hospital so there should be no problem there.
Well if things change on a large scale during the day I’ll be sure to note it here. Wish me luck!
Until next time…
