Hating Tricare even more….and some people are idiots.
Lets start with the simple facts, I have an ultasound next week on Wednesday. The reason for this ultrasound is so that I can get in to see the OB doctor early and get some additional workup to try and keep this pregnancy. Makes sense, right?
So I get a phone call from OB today, and they want to schedule me for an appointment for Feb 2 to talk with the OB doc. Thats not too bad. But then I ask, how soon do they usually start the Ob visits? And this just blows me away. The lady says that they like to have the first visit between 6-8 weeks. So I mention to her that I will be 8 weeks already by that time and then she says “Well this appointment isnt for your first OB visit, you will have to schedule that a different time, this is just a visit to discuss your history of loss.”
SO let me get this straight, I am higher risk and therefore you are going to give me an appointment LATER than the average pregnancy? WTF? What is wrong with people? Is this making any sense to anyone else?
Im trying to keep my cool, because it seems that no one seems to understand whats going on. At this point I think the only thing on my side is prayer, and thats because the doctors and staff arent doing their jobs.
Here’s to praying that the ultrasound goes well and that all this was nothing but a speed bump.
